Superman Actor Henry Cavill Is Thankful For 'Man Of Steel' Fan Support

Henry Cavill, let us assure you, all that hard work you're doing on the "Man of Steel" set is not going unnoticed. The copious photos of the future Superman strutting his stuff on the Vancouver set with a scruffy beard and an impossibly chiseled chest have been very much on our radar 'round these parts, and those pics — combined with the first look at Cavill in his red and blue tights — have us fully sold on the actor's ability to embody the Last Son of Krypton.

It's a relief for Cavill to know that the fans are on his side, the actor told MTV News when we spoke with him at the "Immortals" press junket over the weekend. After all, just because bullets bounce off his chest doesn't mean his ego can't be bruised!

"I think the best part has been recently when people have sort of seen all the work that has gone into it," Cavill said of the fan reactions to his Man of Steel. "I think I won a lot of people over, and I felt the support really come behind me, which is a really good feeling, because when you're doing this all for [the fans], telling a story for them ... you want to do it justice."

"It's wonderful to have all the people online going, 'This is great, this is amazing, I can't wait, thank goodness it's him.' It's wonderful, so thank you to everyone out there," he added, speaking to camera. "I do appreciate it."
