Henry Cavill for Details

The Man of Steel actor Henry Cavill covers the June/July issue of Details magazine.

Here is what Henry had to share with Details.
On testing for James Bond
I screen-tested for James Bond when l was 22 but Daniel [Craig] was above and beyond the best choice. 
On how he reacted when he got cast as Superman
When I found out I got the part. I was home playing World of Warcraft. Zack called, and I thought he was calling to let me down easy. But then it dawned on me that he was giving me the part. I had to play it cool. Be appreciative, respectful, professional. But the second we hung up, I just sprinted up and down my stairs cheering and whooping like a madman. I kept looking in the mirror, going, ‘I don’t believe it. I’m Superman? I’m Superman!’ 
On his family
They taught me to believe in myself, and as much as there were times where I really didn’t, you muscle through. You end up believing in yourself even more 
If he watches his own movies 
The hardest part of acting is not being guaranteed work. Every job could be your last… But I cannot wait for this movie to come out. The studio just showed me the completed cut. I literally asked to watch it twice in a row. I’m so excited. I just want to show it to the world. 
On the mythology and symbolism of Superman
This character matters so much to so many people. I want to get that right. I want to do it justice. I want people to believe in the character and have faith in the character and kids to grow up wanting to be Superman. Or, God forbid, there’s people who are going through hardship and wishing that this character would turn up and save them.
