Zack Snyder reveals why he chose Henry Cavill for SUPERMAN
Many fans were surprised when Henry Cavill was cast as the Man of Steel in the upcoming Superman reboot. Zack Snyder did and interview with MTV News while doing press for Sucker Punch and revealed the details on why he chose Cavill over other actors for the role.
"Henry's just ... I love Joe too, by the way," Snyder told MTV News. "Really he was the only other guy I was thinking of, to be honest, other than Henry."
"In the end, I think Henry just has this innocence, too [in addition to the physicality required for the role]," he continued. "He has both, which is tricky. Superman needs the teeniest bit of that. Not to be overt, but you like it to be there ever so slightly. I mean, he grew up in Kansas, that's just true, so you need a little of that [innocence]."
