Man of Steal has instantly throttled Henry Cavill to the A-list overnight!

Welcome to the club, baby! Tomorrow you won't be able to walk the streets without people coming up to you. Your life is about to change forever.

It doesn't matter what you think of the trailer. The FACT is that Brad Pitt is an A-list movie star and the Brangelina fans (and there's a shitload of them) will flock to World War Z no matter what.

I didn't like Heath Ledger in his role as "Joker".

by Anonymousreply 1906/14/2013

R19, I have to agree with your expression. For example, when Mr. Heath Ledger, in his role of "Joker" had to apply what we in the 'biz' call 'make-up', it was sloppy and the red pigment was smeared on his lips. Not a professional job, say what?

by Anonymousreply 2006/14/2013

Cavill is boring. Routh was boring too, but there was still some like-ablity there. Cavill is just boring all the way through. Also, I can't agree more about him being so handsome it's distracting. I don't mean that in a good way, either.

by Anonymousreply 2106/14/2013

Oh please, Cavill has no charisma, only mediocre talent. He is delusional if he wishes he goes somewhere. The flick got bad reviews mostly.

by Anonymousreply 2206/14/2013

Agree with R21 and R22. Cavill will disappear in a few years and be back to doing bit parts where he belongs. If you have no talent, you can only get by on your looks for so long, and once those are gone, you're screwed.

Someone said that him and Russell Crowe were doing an interview recently, and Crowe was funny and down to earth and Cavill was just "there" he was so boring. What's that say when the lead of the movie can't even keep the audience interested?

Agreed. Nobody knows who he is other than the people who are Superman fans.

Not surprised because I honestly don't even remember hearing Brandon Routh's name when "Superman Returns" came out, and honestly didn't even know the name until a few years ago when I read about him on this site, because I don't care about superhero movies and tend to tune out the advertisements and commercials for movies that don't interest me.

So no, this movie is definitely not going to make him a household name.

by Anonymousreply 2606/29/2013

Isn't it better to have an unknown be the Superman though? Was that not the case also for Christopher Reeve? Maybe this part requires a bit of mystery and everyman blankness and an established well known actor wouldn't be right.

Michael Shannon said Henry was born to play Superman and he certainly fits the part. He also always was obsessed with it, much like Garfield was with Spiderman.

I really hope he comes out soon. An openly gay Superman would do wonders for visibility. But, chances are, he'll wait until after the series gets rebooted yet again, and he's all but a footnote in history.

by Anonymousreply 3006/29/2013

Have any one of the actors who have come out in the modern era previously openly bearded? I think they were all glass closeters.

To me, once an actor takes that step, it's too difficult to go back. Who knows what will happen in the future, though. Maybe it will become so commonplace to be out that the closeted actors will feel free to come out, even if they previously had a girlfriend.

by Anonymousreply 3106/29/2013

I don't generally think gay actors should be outed, but in his case, I think he should.

by Anonymousreply 3206/29/2013

I am old enough to remember when Christopher Reeve's Superman movies came out. Outside of the theater world, he was an unknown.

And to be fair, he really didn't have a great film career outside of the Superman films, which, also to be honest, became a joke after the first 2 films.

while I thought Reeve was a good actor, I don't think anyone would have considered him to be a successful film actor outside of that franchise.

So I guess I am unclear as to why so many are saying that HC will never achieve what Reeve did? I think Reeve was content to be more of a theater actor, and of course after his accident and his admirable way of facing that and still working, he is to be viewed with great respect. He did do some interesting TV roles before and after his accident as well.

As far as Henry goes, I think his ability to be successful beyond MOS, will all hinge on his next project, which is U.N.C.L.E. If that is done well, and HC can show he has some lightness of touch in his acting, then he may well have a better film career overall.

But even if all he ever really does is MOS and the sequels and possibly a Justice League movie or two, He will still be a rich man.

You could always claim that you weren't ready to accept yourself as gay if you had been bearding. I think people would forgive that. Admitting your relationship were a knowing lie would be career suicide though. It's definitely easier for glass closeters to come out though. It would also be easier for people who are just photographed out and about with their beards rather than giving interviews and talking about it because then you could just claim they were friends.

even Superman fans don't know his name Gorgeous but no personality or charisma. During interviews he just smiles while Amy Adams and Russell Crowe hog the conversation. He's more know for training for roles (Immortals/MOS) than any acting chops

I bet if he was around in the 50's Joan Crawford and Tyrone Powers would have fought over him

With social media being what it is, you're dealing with a global audience. He really is "A" list at this point because he now has a greater following which is obviously rooted in his breath-taking looks.

Exactly. None of the men who've played Superman have had successful careers outside of the franchise, and with Cavill's serious lack of charisma or personality, I doubt he will end up A-list.

by Anonymousreply 10408/11/2013

I think he will be A-list based on his popularity rather than his acting talent. I think his people are currently going through the offers and within the next couple of months, you'll see more projects.

I'm not saying this as some "fan" because I'm not and I haven't even seen his movies, but I think he's here to stay for a while because he's gorgeous. People just want to stare at him.

Dan Renzi from Real World Miami?!? They're friends?

by Anonymousreply 11208/11/2013

Supposedly they knew each other:


The facts you need to know for this conversation:

1) My ex and I dated for about 2 years, living with each other for part of it--in this tiny, dirty apartment that used to be a garage. It was all a wild, tumultuous affair, the kind of relationship you have in your 20's when you're still resilient enough to deal with crappy apartments and lots of drama. We never really "broke up," we just...moved on, remained friends, no big finale. We still talk often. "Remaining friends" is something that the gays do very well.

2) He has been dating a lovely young thing, who is also a very tall drink of water--we lovingly refer to him as "The Pig," as he is a pretty big guy. The Pig is actually really cute, which allows us to get away with giving him that name. He's in some sort of medical-related college program, I forget what.

3) We have a friend, who we call The Hen, who is in the show The Tudors--hot, hot, hot straight guy, and why he has that nickname is a long story. He films over in Europe somewhere, and then comes back to LA to hang out, and sleeps on my ex's couch. And he walks around naked, which is great because he has a ginormous endowment that swings around like an elephant trunk.

It's ridiculous that we give people these animal names. But they're the only two.

Okay that's it. Picking up in the middle of our conversation last night:


Have you seen The Hen lately?

"He was just here last month. Sleeping on my couch again."

Does he still walk around naked?

"Not really."

Well then what's the point of that?

"I'm sure he does, I just don't see him do it."

How can you not see him in that tiny apartment?


"You know I don't live in that place anymore, right?"

No, I didn't.

"I moved."

Oh okay, to where?

"A house down the street. It's got a washer and dryer, and a yard, the whole thing."

That sounds nice.

"I figured it was time to move into someplace more grown-up."


(slight pause)

How's The Pig?

"He's good. He's finishing his residency."

How long have you been together now?

"Two years."

Long time.

"That seems to be my limit with people."


"But it's the perfect situation...he does his thing, I do my thing, we see each other, it's great. So we'll see."

Does he stay with you in your new place a lot?


"We live together."


Since when?

"Several months now."



I didn't know that.

"Yeah...he moved in with me when we got the new place."


Oh okay. (said way too fake-cheerfully)


You're all grown-up.

"Not really."

A little. Times change.

"Yes they do."

Yes they do.
