Henry Cavill Compares 'Man Of Steel' And 'Immortals' Directors


Life hasn't changed very much for Henry Cavill in the past few years. Except, of course, for the fact that he's now going to be immortalized as Superman in Zack Snyder's upcoming "Man of Steel."

In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, Cavill discussed how he's not turned off by the attention he's getting for starring in Warner Bros' upcoming superhero flick. In fact, he's a bit charmed by it.

"I'm just working my socks off. Of course, I'm walking down the street now and then and someone will stop or you'll see the paparazzi or something ... there's a difference there, but it's all part and parcel and it's enormously flattering when people come up to me and want to take a photo," he said.

Cavill is also starring in the upcoming mythological action film "Immortals," which comes out in theaters Friday. Both "Immortals" director Tarsem Singh and "Man of Steel" director Zack Snyder are known for their heavily stylized visual effects, but Cavill said that there are notable differences between the two of them.

"While Zack is very stylized; Tarsem is very artistic. Not to say Zack isn't artistic ... OK, watching that HDTV," he said while motioning to a screen in the room, "which is a masterwork in itself and seeing that painting on the wall, which is a masterwork in itself -- they are both beautiful, they both affect you, and they are so entirely different. Like Zack is the TV and Tarsem the painting."

"Man of Steel" hits theaters June 14, 2013.
