Henry Cavills Favourite Superman comics

“I stocked up on source material and buried my head in it for a while,” Cavill said. “I didn’t get a chance to indulge in comics as a kid, which I’m actually quite happy about because as an adult I get to read the best of it. . . And I do enjoy them; as an adult I have retained my sense of wonder and love of stories and fantasy world. I really liked ‘Death of Superman’ and ‘Return of Superman,’ those are my favorite ones, and ‘The New 52‘ is great stuff and ‘Earth One,’ although I know people think that is a mixed bag.”


He spoke in detail about “Red Son,” an alternative-reality story where Superman grows up in the Soviet Union. “With ‘Red Son,’ I thought it was interesting as a different perspective,” Cavill said. “It was out there and I like that. It was essential to my character research, too. When you’ve got two polar opposite viewpoints of the same character, you will see what the authors consider the important baseline trend. I got to see that and see the different ways he would have developed and that was very useful to me.”

He has also gone on the record for loving Superman:Kryptonite

What does /co/ think? I think they are ok choices

What is it with Cavill that make so many guys turning as competitive/threatened as women?

>Tsk, he's not even THAT handsome. He, like, might has well been cast as Luthor with his bald head.
>>
>>78848456
“And because we are retelling the story and we are doing our own reinvention and a modernization for the screen, I get the opportunity to add my own interpretation of how he developed,” he went on. “So that was cool to look at ‘Red Son’ and see what changed, what didn’t change and what that reveals about the baseline of Superman. You can find what is essential to Superman and what is nature vs. nurture by locating that baseline.”

Who cares if he has poor taste in comics? Him having any taste in comics at all is a miracle. He missed the initial call that said he got the part of Superman because he was busy playing vidya. He's practically one of us, fer chrissakes, even if the scripting and direction are terrible.

at least he admits his picks are controversial, and he didnt just say shit like Allstar and Birthright

Death of Superman wasn't a bad story though. I know you get your opinions from Max Landis and all but it wasn't anywhere near as bad as some of the garbage stories I've seen in superhero comics.

If he's talking about Morrison's Action Comics run he's got superb taste.

Seems like he actually read the comics instead of just Googling All Star's Wikipedia summary and reciting praise about it. Come to think of it, I can't even remember the last time I heard of an actor talking about the comics he read for the role at all. Did Ben say anything about prepping for Batman?

This is something I like that actually shows an actor claiming to like the material has actually read it. Knowing stories you enjoy have a mixed reaction from other people shows you're a little more invested in the material than just "oh I read 10 comics about this character and I liked these two."

I'll admit, I'm starting to get a little "Stop not liking what i like", but hating something that people outside your room enjoy, for the sake of being contrary is dumb.

It's a well made game, but it's basically just Fallout 3 with more stuff to do. I imagine its sequel will be better than it, the same way New Vegas was better than 3. There's a reason Witcher 3 is winning every game award from last year.

Every time Cavill talks about Superman, he always comes off as having a pretty solid handle on what he thinks the character is/should be. Cool guy.

It's too bad the direction, script and his own fairly wooden acting were such a let down though. Better luck next time.
