It has been claimed that Henry Cavill, who is set to play Clark Kent aka Superman in Man of Steel, is possibly the best Superman that anybody could ever have. The claim was made by Mirror Mirror director Tarsem Singh, who worked with Henry Cavill on the movie Immortals and Tarsem claims that he has always believed that Henry would be perfect for the role.
Singh explained, "I think he's about the best Superman you could ever have. When I first saw him - this was before I knew he auditioned for Superman, because the last Superman had been made a year and a half before Immortals and tanked - I said, 'This is Clark Kent!'" He also added that Zack Snyder would have to be "blind not to see how right he was for the role".
Tarsem continued, "He's very gentle, manly, just everything was perfect for it. He was so excited when he got it but I didn't doubt for a second that he wouldn't get it." There is still quite a long wait before we get to see Henry Cavill on the big screen as Superman in the movie Man of Steel, which is released on June 14, 2013.
