Henry Cavill works out at Gym Jones, adding muscle to
become Superman in “Man of Steel.”
When Henry Cavill was cast as Superman for the movie “Man of Steel,” director Zack Snyder, among others, wanted him to fill out the costume naturally.
Cavill did what any actor would do: Work out like crazy, 2.5 hours a day for 3 months, plus 5,000 calories a day. And later, getting lean by cutting to 2,500 calories a day.
I watched the movie today, which goes out of its way to show his shirtless physique. It’s impressive, as Ginny noted in that it made up for any and all flaws in the plot, the writing, the casting, etc.
Bulking up was his job. He will transform again for his next role, and the next one. Of course, he’ll likely revisit Gym Jones in Utah for the “Man of Steel” sequel.
Bulking up isn’t my job. But it might be fun to try at that intensity for 3 months.
If only for the flattering pics …
