Man of Steel’s Childhood Nickname Was ‘Fat Cavill’

henry cavill as a kid fat cavillMan of Steel star Henry Cavill wasn’t always steamier than a plate of enchiladas, louder than a vibrator in the movie theater and all those other things about bullets, locomotives and tall buildings that suddenly escape my mind when I think about HIS GIANT BULGING MUSCLES and thoughtful eyes.

My nickname in school was ‘Fat Cavill,’ he told a crowd plus his co-stars, Amy Adams and Russell Crowe, on Friday, June 14 during an interview on The Graham Norton Show. “My dad always said from the age of about 13, I stayed the same weight until 25, I just got taller.”

So he went from a fatty fatty boom to a hottie hottie swoon swoon? And a millionaire? And he’s not intimidated by strong women? (He’s dating MMA-fighter-turned-actress Gina Carano.)

‘Man of Steel’ Kills At Box Office, Doesn’t Wow Critics

Man of Steel’s scored a massive $113 million at the box office over the weekend but failed to impress the majority of critics and nerds, who complained about it not being as humorous as Thor, Amy Adams’ non-brown hair and Henry Cavill smoldering too much for their fragile eyes.

The biggest flaw cited was the apparent lack of fun. Richard Roeper wrote“There’s very little humor or joy in this Superman story, and not enough character development for us really to care.”

I beg to differ. The scene where tiny Clark Kent locks himself in a closet at school because he’s overwhelmed by the sight of his classmate’s nasal cavities made me care about him and his earth mama Martha (Diane Lane), who consoles him through the door as he tells her that the world is just too big.

The opening scene on Krypton made me care about his birthparents Lara (Ayelet Zurer) and Jor-El (Russell Crowe), and every scene with Kevin Costner (especially the one with the tornado) made my eyes water because it was Father’s Day and mine’s dead. (Just kidding, I’m mostly fine.)  Continue reading “‘Man of Steel’ Kills At Box Office, Doesn’t Wow Critics”

Trailer: Man of Steel

I have many fears about the new Man of Steel movie with Henry Cavill. For one, it’s Superman…

He flies around the earth without the help of a suit (Iron Man), webs (Spider-Man) or gadgets (Batman) wearing his underwear on the outside of his clothes like a child. Second, no one can recognize him without his glasses because he was created in 1933 when cheeseball sh*t like that was a commodity. (There’s a reason there isn’t an Aquaman movie outside of the fictional universe known as Entourage.)

It’s hard to realistically translate his story to film in 2013 because of all the flying, the glasses and the newspaper thing. People under the age of 50 do not read newspapers unless they’re doing heroin under a bridge and one just happens to be lying around. CLICK for a pic of Henry Cavill’s indestructible bulge…

New Superman AND Catwoman Costumes Revealed!

Costumes have recently been revealed for the two biggest upcoming comic book movie releases, Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises (due Summer 2012) and Zach Snyder’s remake of Superman, Man Of Steel, due out in 2013.

The changes to the Superman suit are very subtle or non-existant. The only real difference is the lack of signature curly-q hair string.

The true shocker comes from the new Catwoman outfit, which is too complicated and space-agey for its own good(=bad), if you ask me and anyone else. But there is SOMEONE coming to the outfit’s defense, Anne Hathaway herself, who said,

“What I am happy to say is, if you didn’t like the photo, you only see about a tenth of what that suit can do. And if you did like the photo, you have excellent taste.”
