Actor Henry Cavill reveals how to travel with ease through times and time periods. The best measure of a man is how he thrives when he’s out of his element, not in it.

The King is Dead! Long Live King Henry! British actor Henry Cavill came this close to landing the title role in Batman Begins and Superman Returns.
