June 12 - British actor Henry Cavill says 'there's no way you can be prepared' for Superman stardom at the Man of Steel European premiere. No reporter narration.
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) British actor Henry Cavill said that it's impossible to prepare for Superman-level stardom as he attended the European premiere of director Zack Snyder's dark and gritty "Man of Steel" in a rain-soaked London on Wednesday (June 12). Cavill, 30, is so far best known for 16th century TV drama "The Tudors" and the 2011 fantasy film "Immortals" but he has flown under the radar of most movie-goers until now. Cavill said that he worked out hard to get ready for the iconic role, but understands the need to roll with whatever comes with being associated with the film. The studio, Warner Brothers, hopes it can re-launch a new series of Superman films after its 2006 offering, "Superman Returns" and its leading man Brandon Routh, failed to live up to box office expectations. But Cavill says he's not feeling the pressure. "Man of Steel" will be released in the U.S. on June 14th.
