We have heard long ago that Henry Cavill wore the legendary Christopher Reeves‘ classic Superman suit during his first audition for Man of Steel about 5 or 6 years ago.
And today luckily Zack Snyder shared a photo he took of Cavill wearing the suit! No wonder he landed the gig! The photo came with the following caption from Snyder saying, “I knew when I saw him he was my Superman.”
This is what Snyder previously had to say about it:
“We didn’t have the suit made when Henry was auditioning, so he wore the original Christopher Reeve suit. He put it on and when he came out of the trailer, everyone was like, ‘Dang, you’re Superman!”
