Henry Cavill talks about his role as the legendary Superman in an interview for his new movie 'Man Of Steel'. He talks about the pressure on him to play the role, maintaining the emotional and physical balance of the character and wearing the suit for the first time.
'There is that external worldwide pressure of people wanting me to do this and that 'don't mess it up' kind of thing, and I chose not to acknowledge that because that's not going to help me in any way', he explains. 'The pressure I put on myself was far more positive.' He denies that there has to be a balance between physical and emotional strength in Superman. 'It's a story first and there's an emotional being at the centre of it first, he just happens to have these incredible abilities', he says. 'You don't balance the two, you be them both. This is what makes this movie different.' On wearing the finalised suit for the first time he says: 'There's something really special about this suit. it has like an almost physical energy about it and it affects people. People will stand straighter or go 'Hey man!' when they see you in the suit,' before adding with some encouragement, 'And it's extremely cool.'
