In fact, I’m sure there’s someone [from the studio] waiting just outside my house in case they overhear me say something. I think people everywhere know who Superman is and they can relate to Superman.
I think the feeling I have for Superman would be the same as the American version of me would have for Superman. When I was a young lad I was into Superman, I was into Iron Man, I was into the X-Men. To be honest—I’m really not too sure if there is now. Since I got the role of Superman, I’ve been more into the character and delving into the DC universe.

I’m not going to be like, “Hey, I’m going to do a big fat-man role or a really skinny role because that’s what all the big actors do these days!
I think I’d probably get myself into a big amount of trouble. I picked up Kal for the first time during preproduction for . My own personal approach to training is, I’m learning year after year after year and applying it and finding what fits and suits me best for my lifestyle. Now that I’m fit again, I think I’ve found a comfortable balance, which is enjoyable because we all like to go out for drinks and have pizza and have dinners and all the nice things in life, and not being a complete gym psycho.
