Henry Cavill, actor who currently plays Geralt of Rivia in the series of The Witcher on Netflix and that has been Superman in recent adaptations of DC and Warner Bros., has recognized in a recent interview that she felt intimidated by the physical of Ben Affleck on the set of the filming of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice. And that is the crossover between both characters and sequel Man of Steel or Man of Steel, brought together two actors of imposing appearance, although Cavill, already in great shape at that time, even was surprised of the physical form of Ben Affleck.
Great shape of Ben Affleck
And is that according to tells Cavill magazine Healthy For Men, believed to be in very good shape after playing Superman in the film; until he was face to face with Affleck. So much so, that Cavill explains that in that time, Affleck was really strong and with a musculature with a lot of volume, which led to the required more in the gym.
To all this we must add the height of both actors; while Ben Affleck measures 1,93, Henry Cavill is in 1,85: The type is huge. I am insignificant in comparison. It is much bigger than I expected, this huge presence and great physical. I had to push myself. When you see this mountain of a man walking through the set, you think: ‘I have to go to the gym… yesterday’, recognizes Cavill in that interview.
Like most things in life, you get to a certain level, and I thought I was in good form when shooting that movie. Then I met Ben Affleck. What impressed me first was how much fun it was, but he was also very muscular. I’ve never been the type of person who feels superior to others by a physician, but I admit I was a little intimidated, and encouraged me to push a little more, because Ben was really muscular, concludes Cavill.
Currently, Henry Cavill sports a physical significantly more bulky in its stage of Superman; at the moment there is no news about his return as the Man of Steel in the cinema.
