Amy Adams Talks Henry Cavill as Superman in ‘Man of Steel’

Henry Cavill is 'invested' in his Man of Steel character says Amy Adams Actress Amy Adams has been making the press rounds as of late, for her new movies The Master and Trouble with the Curve. Naturally, she has also been fielding questions about next summer's Man of Steel, where she plays a "reinvented" Lois Lane. She recently spoke about her Man of Steel co-star Henry Cavill, revealing how invested he was in this superhero character.

"You feel like you're in scenes with Superman. He is completely invested and yoked and he just really took the role very seriously and yeah, he's fantastic, he's just so yum. He's the nicest guy, aside from the face."

The actress also revealed she shared a few scenes with Michael Shannon, who plays the "terrifying" General Zod.

"He's fantastic. He's terrifying. I only had a couple scenes with him."

Man of Steel was released June 14th, 2013.

      @thaphoenix All we can do is pray to the holy comic book Gods that we finally get a good Superman film, sit back with our alcoholic beverages and cigars, and just wait!

        Pretty f*cking epic, huh, @bawnian-dexeus? I really wanted to see Millar's version on-screen, but I guess that'll never come now. Kind of makes every other plot they might choose for sequels seem like a let down in potential. :/

                  @z-money What hype... the hype is coming from the fans, not the movie... They have not released hardly anything to the public on this one... I personally love the casting... It is filled with extremely talented people whom are chameleons and lose themselves in every role they play...

                      Ok, here we go again. More propoganda (marketing) coming from the MOS camp. Come on! Do you guys really think she is going to come out and say HC did an ok job as Supes? Or HC did not give all his best to the part? Or, HC was sh*t as the Man of Steel? Bottom-line, this movie has a 50-50 shot of being great or being a bomb. On the pro-side, there is the Nolan connection and probably a great story along with Snyder's great visual presentation style. On the bad side, half of the cast is bad casting (with the better side being Superman's parents Kent's and El's). Snyder's possible interpretation of Superman (who is a boy scout not Leonidas of Sparta) and the use of another familiar villian (Zod). I love Superman (he is my favorite comic and super-hero character), I am just afraid of all the hype and bullsh*t that might be a let down like Superman Returns or TDKR.

                          @comicbookfan Very true, except for the hate on my movie!!! ;P

                          But I agree... I just know, at this point, I am really liking everything I see and hear on the Superman project... It does not mean I will not change if this starts to go downhill! haha

                              @narrator Interesting idea. I feel like I have been pushing this forever, but I would love to see Brainiac as a villain in a Superman movie. But I would have liked to have the Kryptonian mythology tied into his character, whereas if they did him now, they'd most likely drop that from the story. Either way, Superman vs. Brainiac would be sweet in live-action. For now, I have the animated adaptation coming out next year in the fall. I like your other villain choices, as well.

                                Wait, just read through the comments. Goyer left re-writes?

                                0.0

                                  I'm so excited for this film, it isn't even funny. 2013 can't come soon enough.

                                  Cavill seems really invested in the role and, while I'm hesitant about the 'change of direction' with the character of Lois, I'm sure Goyer (and Nolan) have done a fantastic job with the story and know what they're doing.

                                  Just waiting on that full length trailer, which I predict will debut in front of 'Jack Reacher', 'Les Miserables' or maybe 'The Hobbit'.

                                    Very true, @comicbookfan. It's rather unfortunate for all parties involved.

                                    Yeeahh... I gathered as much, @dan1. Lol.

                                    And no problem, @ejk1.

                                    On a side note, for sh*ts and giggles (and if this film succeeds), what would you like to see from a sequel. Before anyone hits me with the "this is pointless without seeing the movie first" spiel, refer to my first comment. I'm rather curious about how grounded this film will be and how it might affect any possible dreams fans might have for a sequel. I for one am still a little stuck on Mark Millar's idea:

                                    An epic three-part series written and directed back to back. Brainiac would open the series as the big bad from Kal-El's world while Lex is slowly developed for the series. Doomsday would eventually come in during the second film, giving Supe's a run for his money and "killing him" while Lex is finally established as a baddie. Then the battle of the gods, as it were, with Zod and Superman battling it out for the fate of the world, while Lex moves in for the kill. The series would end with Superman being the last human on earth, old and alone, the last son of two worlds... something like that. Too late for that now, eh?

                                      @ejk1 I know what you said then and now, I know why you say what you do. You have your rights to be cautious about this movie. All I ever said was wait for the final product and then base judgement. But everyone is entitled to their opinion. I have no issues with you.
