Henry Cavill recently spoke out on playing DC Comics' iconic hero Superman, revealing his thoughts on wearing the new super suit.
"It's extremely cool. There's no other feeling like it. They just put it on, I turned around and look in the mirror and you can't really play it cool - you sort of guffaw and laugh. I thought 'OK, holy hell, this is real, it's not a joke anymore. This is it...you're doing it, you're right in the middle of it."
Henry Cavill also spoke about the work out regime he is currently on.
"I'm on 5000 calories a day... You've got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs...you've gotta keep your hunger levels going. I'm training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman."
While Henry Cavill couldn't divulge any story details, he did part with these words.
"[I am focused on] being as true as I can be to the original character and who the character is. I'm very proud to be British and playing an iconic American superhero...it means I'm doing something right somewhere."
Man of Steel comes to theaters June 14th, 2013 and stars Russell Crowe, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon, Laurence Fishburne, Christopher Meloni. The film is directed by Zack Snyder.
