“If I were to take everyone’s comments to heart, then I think it would be [difficult],” Cavill said.
“There’s very hurtful stuff out there — and wonderful stuff too — so I’d be thrown between having an enormous ego and a very small, crushed one. It’s one of those things where it’s all part of the entertainment. It’s going to happen, people are going to talk and that’s great. If people are talking, they’re being entertained in one way or another, so carry on.”
Meanwhile, Russell Crowe, who is set to play Superman’s father, spoke with Reelz about the upcoming film and its approach to the popular DC Comics superhero.
“It’s very complicated, it’s really complex. I don’t think anybody has really tried to get into the psychology of what it must be like to be Superman and how people would really respond — like in a modern society — if somebody like that just popped up. I think Zack Snyder was given a great deal of responsibility because when it comes to comic book heroes and superhero films, the top of the food chain is Superman. I think the biggest indicator for me of how it’s looking is that the financier of the film has sent me gushing emails, he just loves it,” said Crowe.
“I’m really looking forward to seeing it, it’s a massive undertaking. It takes you on the ground to Krypton, it takes you to a planet where the sun is four times larger than ours and you get to experience that stuff and if you’ve seen the trailers you realize that this Superman is not just floating through the air held up by a wire, this Superman is supersonic. I’m really looking forward to the way that people will respond to it.”
“Man of Steel” arrives in theaters June 14, 2013 with an all-star cast which includes Russell Crowe, Amy Adams, Diane Lane, Michael Shannon and Kevin Costner.
