Henry Cavill is Transforming His Body to Become the Man of Steel

Henry Cavill is set to portray the Man of Steel in the next Superman movie, but first, he has to get into superhero-worthy physical state. How does he plan to do it?

“I’m on 5,000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs…you’ve gotta keep your hunger levels going,” Cavill said. “I’m training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman.”

Cavill is already a pro at transforming his body through exercise in order to play a role. Albeit in a completely different way, Cavill gained plenty of lean muscle mass for his upcoming movie “The Immortals” due out in theaters on November 11, 2011. However, he needs to really bulk up for his next role.
