No it is not an excuse to post lots of lovely pictures of Henry Cavill... honest.
Superman, aka the Man of Steel is my ultimate hero. He has a strength no other man has and his heart is good. Lois Lane was extremely lucky to have this guy looking out for her.
I grew up as Superman being played by Christopher Reeve. And I will always love his renditions. Looking back, the films were probably a bit cheesy, but then it was for kids, and in the 70s and 80s that was the style of films.
I even enjoyed watching the entire series of Lois and Clark. Dean Cain being another very handsome Superman alternative. I was 20 years old when this started showing, and was hooked to the TV weekly.
A few years back they did bring out another Superman film, and it was to follow on from Superman 2 of the Christopher Reeve film. It was good... but I wasn't as impressed with it, like I was Man of Steel.
Henry Cavill - did I tell you he's British? - had moments where he looked like Christopher Reeve actually. The film is excellent, but maybe more sci-fi than some might like, as it takes the story of the first two Superman films. It actually gives us much more insight into Krypton and General Zod. I loved it! But this man did help...
Yes, so okay, this blog post was an excuse to put up lots of pretty pictures of Henry Cavill... I can see him being my next inspiration (in looks) for a hero.
Who's your favourite hero, and why?
