“Some people thrive under pressure, but pressure can also ruin your performance, it can push you down angles which you don’t want to go.”
  • Refused to shave mustache for rollduring the filming of Superman Vs Batman
  • His favorite Superman story lines and the ones he used for inspiration are "Death Of Superman", "Return Of Superman", "Superman: Red Son" and "Earth-One". He is also a big fan of Grant Morrison's "New 52" work.
  • Admitted during an interview with Conan O'Brien that he narrowly missed the call from Zack Snyder, informing him that he had won the coveted role of Superman because he was busy playing World of Warcraft. Cavill said he only noticed Snyder's name on Caller ID at the last second and by the time he put his hand on the phone to pick it up, it was too late, so he called Snyder back immediately, jokingly stating he was busy saving someone's life.
  • Voted as one of the "World's Sexiest Men" in a poll by Attitude (2013), behind Tom Daley
  • Has worked with actor Bill Nighy twice, once in I Capture the Castle (2003) and also The Inspector Lynley Mysteries (2001).
