Amy Adams holds the belief that Henry Cavill does the best Superman. This follows some similar comments made by Man of Steel co-star, Michael Shannon.
Adams was dazzled by Cavill and at times even felt like she was hanging out with Superman, himself. (Yes, I used “dazzled” on purpose, here.) From the MTV article:
“You feel like you’re in scenes with Superman,” Adams agreed. “He is completely invested and yoked and he just really took the role very seriously and yeah, he’s fantastic, he’s just so yum. He’s the nicest guy, aside from the face,” she said, which prompted the two of us to have a brief girl moment where we shared stories of getting lost in Cavill’s eyes. I told Adams that when I interviewed Cavill for “Immortals” that I was glad I was supposed to be staring at him, because it’s hard to look away.
“Really? Whenever I had to look into his eyes I would just start giggling,” Adams admitted. “I was like ‘Oh I gotta stop this.’”
We now know that Lois Lane (played by Adams) will cross paths with Zod at some point; Adams said she only had a few scenes with Shannon, and that his performance was “fantastic” and “terrifying”.
These comments set the bar rather high. Let’s hope we’re not disappointed in the acting arena, at least.
Man of Steel will hit theaters on June 14, 2013.
