Photo of Henry Cavill Wearing Christopher Reeves' Superman Suit For His MAN OF STEEL Audition
I've heard that Henry Cavill slipped into Christopher Reeves' classic Superman suit during his first audition for Man of Steel about 5 or 6 years ago. Well, today director Zack Snyder shared a photo he took of Cavill wearing the suit and as you can see he looks great! No wonder he landed the gig! The photo came with the following caption from Snyder saying, "I knew when I saw him he was my Superman."
This is what Snyder previously had to say about it:
"We didn’t have the suit made when Henry was auditioning, so he wore the original Christopher Reeve suit. He put it on and when he came out of the trailer, everyone was like, ‘Dang, you’re Superman!"
I was wondering if we'd ever see this photo and I'm glad that Snyder released it! You can check out the full image below.
