I’ve had this on going conversation with a few friends, pretty much ever since Captain America. And I’ve alluded to a lot of this before.

The character always was kind of bland to me (which will seem like a direct contradiction to everything I’m about to say). I liked the idea that Smallville would roughen the character up a some – giving him depth by giving him angst. But I feel like they never really achieved that idea. […]

He was once dubbed “the unluckiest man in Hollywood” after missing out — just — on blockbusters from James Bond to Harry Potter. But Henry Cavill is finally flying high as he revs up for the lead in this summer’s Superman reboot, Man Of Steel. The first time he met Russell Crowe, Henry Cavill was 16, shivering and in shorts. A pupil of Stowe School in Buckinghamshire, he was one of several students who had been asked to be extras, playing rugby in the background while Crowe said goodbye to his on-screen son. The film was Proof Of Life, and […]

Admittedly, it’s been a while since I’ve seen Immortals. But I did not like it at all, which is why I haven’t seen it again now that it’s opened.
