Superman MAN OF STEEL Cavill Can’t Stop Being Kind to Kids written by John Bierly January 23, 2012 by John Bierly Since his casting as Clark Kent and Superman in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman film, Man of Steel, Henry Cavill has said all kinds of encouraging things that prove he’s ready not only to honor the character but also to respect the source material and the fans — and that extends to the little ones for whom he’ll be the first Superman they’ll ever see on a big screen. First, Just Jared snapped him signing an autograph for a young boy in a Batman shirt at the Vancouver airport on January 2 … … and today we got an even better shot of Cavill — in his full Superman costume, no less — as he poses with another young fan on set in Chicago: The photo popped up on the fan-operated DCU Movie Page’s Twitter account, who got it from the fan-run Man of Steel 2013 Facebook Page (with a photo credit to Doreen Fischer). So far we’ve only seen one official photo of the costume with the colors intentionally muted. This one gives a better idea of its actual colors and a closer view of its space-age alien texture and that beautiful new (but awesomely old-school) “S” shield. When I showed it to a good friend of mine, he said, “There will never be a better production photo from this film than THAT.” These boys will remember for the rest of their lives that Superman took the time to pose with them and say hi. Numerous fans of all ages in each of the film’s shooting locations so far have had lots of photos and stories to share of Cavill’s cheerful willingness to take time for everyone who asks it of him, and it’s good to know we’ve got a Man of Steel who’ll make us proud both on screen and off. June 14, 2013 cannot arrive soon enough.

I'm glad we still have people like this who set good examples for those who are inspired by them. And I agree, June 14, 2013 can't come soon enough! John Bierly Thanks for the comment, Javier! Very well said. I still can't believe this movie is so far away. The good news is that insiders say Warner Bros. is superbly pleased with the film's progress, which is ahead of schedule. The wait will be brutal, but at least we'll know they had time to get it right!
