Henry Cavill Explains How The 'Justice League' Superheroes Are Relatable


Henry Cavill

There's now under a week to go until the release of 'Justice League'; the latest entry into the DC Extended Universe and a film that will hopefully continue riding off of the success of 'Wonder Woman'. Whilst 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', 'Suicide Squad' and 'Man of Steel' didn't see the best critical reviews, 'Wonder Woman' was an immediate success with both reviewers and the wider general public. 'Justice League' will hope to follow the latter's trend.

Warner Bros., along with director Zack Snyder and co-writer Joss Whedon have brought the heroes of the Justice League together for the first time in live-action, with Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg stepping in to join Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. Together, they'll take on the threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who have invaded planet Earth to try and get their hands on a trio of Mother Boxes, which would grant them ultimate power.

Henry Cavill Promises "Gallows Humour" In 'Justice League'


Henry Cavill

When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, it's fair to say the reaction to the majority of its movies so far has been completely split. 'Wonder Woman' broke the mould, bringing in amazing reviews from both critics and the wider general viewing public, but for the flicks that came before it such as 'Suicide Squad' and 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', there was a lot of venom and raised eyebrows.

This month, the latest addition to the DCEU comes in the form of 'Justice League', with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck's Batman teaming up with Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and the returning Superman (Henry Cavill). Forced to defend Earth once more, they'll go up against their most formidable threat in Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons who are all in search of a trio of Mother Boxes scattered across the planet. With them, Steppenwolf would claim ultimate power, bringing death and destruction to millions.

Justice League Trailer


The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.

Henry Cavill Jokes About Moustache 'Fiasco'


Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill responded to fans’ grumbling about his facial hair in a facetious and amusing manner, after recent reports commented upon extensive Justice League re-shoots and his moustache.

Variety reported on Monday (July 24th) that Warner Bros. and DC were embarking on a series of re-shoots for Justice League, in the wake of the success of Wonder Woman, ahead of its theatrical release later this year.

However, this presents a problem in character continuity, as Cavill needed to grow a moustache for his role in Paramount’s Mission: Impossible 6, which was supposed to finish shooting before he needed to return to Warner Bros. to play Superman in Justice League. However, the over-running of one and the re-shooting of the other have required him to flit between projects, and Paramount won’t allow him to shave while M:I6 is in production.

'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' finally made its New York premiere yesterday (March 20th 2016) as fans gear up for the excitement of its theatrical debut on Friday.

Henry Cavill Gets Put In His Place By Very Young Batman Fans


Henry Cavill

Henry Cavill was left heartbroken when he met a bunch of very young superhero fans, many of whom were brutally honest in their declaration that they favoured Batman over Superman. Kids just don't mess around; they know what they want and they're not prepared to sugar-coat the situation.

Henry CavillSorry, Henry, kids know best!

When Cavill visited the Durrell Wildlife Conservation as part of a movement with the charity Omaze, he decided to get some answers about who was really the better Superhero. He probably wasn't expecting such bluntness though.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Gives Henry Cavill A Break From Superman


Henry Cavill Guy Ritchie

Taking a break from his role as Superman, Henry Cavill took a trip to the swinging 60s to star in Guy Ritchie's spy action-comedy The Man From U.N.C.L.E. It's a much more light-hearted role than 2013's Man of Steel, and offers a glimpse into how Cavill might have played James Bond (he was a finalist to play 007 before Daniel Craig landed the role).

Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer in 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.'Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer are major frenemies in 'The Man From U.N.C.L.E.' re-boot

In fact, some critics have said that U.N.C.L.E. is nothing but summer fluff. "As an actor, I don't go out looking for a message," he says. "But I believe anyone can take what they want from it. It's set in a time of potential nuclear apocalypse and asking how that would feel. The 1960s were, apparently, awesome. So if you're sitting around now being a misery-guts because you're having a bad day, well, what if it were the 1960s and the world could actually end?"

The Man From U.N.C.L.E. Review

Very Good

Adopting a deliciously groovy vibe, Guy Ritchie turns the iconic 1960s TV spy series into a flashy action-comedy. There's absolutely nothing to this frothy romp, but it's packed with hilarious characters and lively action scenes that continually surprise the audience with inventive twists on the genre. And it just might turn the suave, fast-talking Henry Cavill and the brooding, engaging Armie Hammer into A-list stars in the process.

It opens in 1963 East Berlin, where ex-con CIA operative Napoleon Solo (Cavill) is trying to help sexy mechanic Gaby (Alicia Vikander) escape to the West, chased by his nemesis, KGB agent Illya Kuryakin (Hammer). Gaby's father is a nuclear scientist on the verge of selling his secrets to a rogue Italian billionaire couple (Elizabeth Debicki and Luca Calvani) so, even though the Cold War is raging, the CIA and KGB decide to cooperate on the mission. This means that rivals Solo and Illya must work together as they travel to Rome with Gaby, making contact with British agent Waverly (Hugh Grant) and Gaby's creepy uncle (Sylvester Goth). And of course, there are unexpected wrinkles along the way.

As always, Ritchie cleverly subverts each set-piece, letting chase scenes unfold in carefully staged but enjoyably inventive ways, often putting the real action in the background while the characters act as if they're above all this nastiness. As popcorn entertainment, this is first-rate, with a cast that's more than up to the challenge. Cavill is particularly smooth, a Bond-style spy who seems unable to resist seducing every pretty woman he meets. Hammer's role is pricklier, since Illya never quite relaxes, although his petulance makes him just as likeable. Their interplay is snappy and often very funny but, unlike Ritchie's similarly toned Sherlock Holmes movies, this strains to avoid being a bromance. Solo and Illya continue to spy on each other right to the end, maintaining their Cold War distance even as they team up to save the world.
