So I’m finally catching up on the updates I missed during the Justice League press junket in London from last weekend. Here are some details and videos from several interviews Henry did in London!

Starting with Henry’s Instagram, he shared a photo of him in the Star Labs set that is a part of the Justice League Experience, comparing it to his PC gaming set up at home. The cast also posed for a group photo at the themed rooms.

The guys at Cosmic Book News generously shared some photos from the press conference on their site. I have added those in our gallery!

ComicBook.com was at the press conference and shared some info on their website. The cast was asked what they want fans to walk away with after seeing the movie, to which Henry answered with “For me, I hope people walk away from it first of all having enjoyed it and had fun, but more importantly to have it inspire, and to walk away with a sense of hope.” The site also shared a video compilation of the interviews they did with cast, wherein they shared details on making the film. Henry’s part starts at around the 4:50 mark, and of course, he was asked about the mustache and the process of removing it for the final cut.

Several promotional posters have been released over the past months, but none of them has featured Superman…until now! Warner Bros. has finally released a new motion poster that puts the Man of Steel in the spotlight.

The poster shows Superman with the phrase, ‘Hope Never Dies.’ In the background, we hear the voice of Lois Lane (played by Amy Adams) accompanied by a score by Hans Zimmer.

“This is what we know. The world has grown darker and while we have reason to fear we have the strength not to. There are heroes among us to remind us that only from fear comes courage, that only from the darkness can we truly feel the light.”

2 November 2017   Comments Off on Shopping with Superman: Henry Cavill for The New York Times

Henry recently sat down with The New York Times for an interview, wherein he discussed the Superman legacy, his fashion style, taking the James Bond mantle, and many more, including his moustache!

LONDON — It’s not every day that you go shopping with Superman.

It was 10 a.m. on a sunny Friday last month, one of those rare autumn days when the English capital seems to have swapped weather with Santa Monica, Calif., when I first spotted Henry Cavill, the British actor who has put his stamp on the Man of Steel for a new generation of filmgoers.

Military erect, his arms folded purposefully, he was standing outside Gieves & Hawkes, the Savile Row clothier that has been outfitting the British gentry since King George III.

He was hard to miss. Regardless of one’s age, gender or sexual orientation, it can be agreed that the man is a specimen, a 99.9999 percentile hunk, a super man. I pictured a hypothetical ad in Variety: “Wanted: Actor. Untitled Superman project. Must be as handsome as Ryan Gosling, as charming as Colin Firth and as ripped as any starting linebacker on the Dallas Cowboys.”

He had arrived on Savile Row from his home in London’s genteel Kensington district to browse for suits on the eve of the publicity blitz for “Justice League,” the superhero blockbuster-to-be featuring Mr. Cavill alongside Ben Affleck as Batman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Aside from a Superman-ish forelock that tumbled down his forehead, Mr. Cavill looked more like a romantic lead from an E. M. Forster period drama, wearing a royal blue Cifonelli blazer, a dandyish confection of curls and a distinctly retro, and distinctly absurd, handlebar mustache.

“It’s for a role, ‘Mission: Impossible 6,’” he said sheepishly, referring to his giant crumb catcher. “It makes me feel a little odd at times. People think I’m some crazy handlebar-mustache-growing person.”

“But,” he added gamely, “I’m also playing around with it now, growing it a bit longer. Why the hell not? When else am I going to grow a handlebar mustache?”

To the degree the mustache was intended as a disguise, it failed. In recent weeks, the whiskers had seemingly become more famous than he was, inspiring countless tabloid items after Mr. Affleck jokingly referred to it as a “full-on porn-star mustache” during a “Justice League” reshoot.

Then again, Mr. Cavill has an uneasy relationship to fame. For years, he was a Hollywood’s king of the near miss. He lost out to Daniel Craig to be the next James Bond, and also to Robert Pattinson on both “Twilight” and “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire.” Although he has been working steadily since he was a teenager, he always seemed to receive second billing to his biceps.

But he has been flirting with A-list stardom ever since he inherited the role of Superman in Zack Snyder’s 2013 franchise reboot, “Man of Steel,” followed by featured roles opposite Armie Hammer in “Man from U.N.C.L.E.” in 2015 and now Tom Cruise in his latest “Mission Impossible” installment.

In person, though, Mr. Cavill comes across less like a Hollywood action hero than an English gentleman in the prewar sense, a vestige of an era when leading men were described as “dashing” or “debonair,” and civility meant something.

In a less august setting than one of London’s oldest bespoke tailors, he might be fair game for the “paps” (paparazzi), as they say in England, as well as for any hormonal young woman with a smartphone and an Instagram handle.
