New Delhi: Superman fans can now breathe a sigh of relief. While the unofficial set of photographs for the upcoming movie in the series have been doing the rounds for sometime, now Warner Bros have officially unveiled the look of Henry Cavill as the new Man of Steel.
After the much-anticipated teaser for The Dark Knight Rises was unveiled by Warner Bros, fans had been waiting with bated breath for Henry Cavill’s Superman avtaar in Man of Steel.
The Zack Snyder movie will be a reboot of the series and stars Amy Adams, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Laurence Fishburne besides Henry Cavill.
The movie is being made at a budget of $175 million and its release date was pushed back from December 2012 to June 2013, which was surprising as the look of the new Superman was unveiled today.
Earlier the lead actor, Henry Cavill had said that he had to get into shape for the role, previously played by Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh, and he was eating “far more than usual” to gain the required muscle mass.
“I’m on 5,000 calories a day. I’m training two-and-a-half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle to make myself look like Superman,” the actor said.
Incidentally, the actor also has his eyes as playing James Bond should the opportunity arise.
“If they approached me on that I’d leap at the opportunity to do it. But that’s of course well away for the time being,” Cavill said.
