Henry Cavill - Chris Hemsworth gave Henry Cavill superhero tips

Henry Cavill sought superhero advice from Chris Hemsworth.

The 'Man of Steel' star has revealed he reached out the 'Thor' actor for some words of wisdom before tackling the famous role as the Kryptonian crime-fighter in Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot.

He said: ''I did briefly speak to Chris Hemsworth at Comic Con, who played Thor. I just walked up and said, 'Mate, I wanted to say hi, my name is Henry. I'm playing Superman, what's it like?'

''He said, 'Don't worry about it. The fans are a lot more supportive than you think. They're behind you the whole way, so just enjoy it.' He's a really nice bloke.''

The actor added that he was in a state of shock after learning he'd landed the part of Superman and refused to believe it was true.

He told ShortList magazine: ''It's one of those things where you look at yourself in the mirror and you're going, 'I don't believe it. I'm Superman.' And you keep repeating it. It's so surreal that you need someone from Warner Brothers just to call you and say, 'Hey, it's real!' ''

'Man of Steel' - which also stars Amy Adams as Superman's love interest Lois Lane and Michael Shannon as villainous General Zod - is due for release on June 14.
