Henry Cavill recently spoke with Cineplex Magazine about stepping into the role of Superman/Clark Kent in next summers highly-anticpated reboot of the Superman film franchise, "Man of Steel." Here's an excerpt from the article:
"What I can say is that it's a modernization of the character and a very realistic view of one, obviously, very fantastic individual. It's an unreal situation, but it's approached from a very practical viewpoint. We wanted to make the character easier to identify with."
The 29-year-old Brit knows the kind of big shoes he has to fill. "It's important to do the role justice. There are a lot of people relying on me to do this well. I gladly accept that responsibility, and it's a great one to have because it's a wonderful opportunity. I don't let the pressures get to me because that's going to hinder my performance and, therefore, let people down. So I choose to ignore the pressure side of it and focus on doing justice to Superman."
