Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill revealed in an interview with GQ Magazine “I’ve been playing a lot of single player games like Skyrim. Goodness, that is a great game.”
He nearly missed out on the opportunity to play Superman in Man of Steel because director Zack Synder chose a very awkward time to call. “I saw it was him (calling), but the thing is, you can’t save World of Warcraft, you can’t pause it. It’s live!”
But mercifully Cavill called him back and gratefully accepted the part.
