In the recent issue of Entertainment Weekly, new Superman Henry Cavill admitted he was a bit embarassed when he screen tested for Big Blue.
All the muscle he put on for Immortals, he took off for The Cold Light of Day (for EW Henry Cavill Cover pic and interview head on over here) which was right before the screen test.
You can check out what Henry Cavill, as Theseus, looks like in Immortals below. If he gets back into this kind of shape, he’ll have nothing to worry about. Also, pics of Mickey Rourke as King Hyperion, Freida Pinto as Phaedra and Kellan Lutz as Poseidon.
Immortals is due out November 11th, 2011.

Eons after the Gods won their mythic struggle against the Titans, a new evil threatens the land. Mad with power, King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) has declared war against humanity. Amassing a bloodthirsty army of soldiers disfigured by his own hand, Hyperion has scorched Greece in search of the legendary Epirus Bow, a weapon of unimaginable power forged in the heavens by Ares.
Only he who possesses this bow can unleash the Titans, who have been imprisoned deep within the walls of Mount Tartaros since the dawn of time and thirst for revenge. In the king’s hands, the bow would rain destruction upon mankind and annihilate the Gods. But ancient law dictates the Gods must not intervene in man’s conflict. They remain powerless to stop Hyperion…until a peasant named Theseus (Henry Cavill) comes forth as their only hope.
Secretly chosen by Zeus, Theseus must save his people from Hyperion and his hordes. Rallying a band of fellow outsiders—including visionary priestess Phaedra (Freida Pinto) and cunning slave Stavros (Stephen Dorff)—one hero will lead the uprising, or watch his homeland fall into ruin and his Gods vanish into legend.
The 3-D epic adventure Immortals is directed by revolutionary visualist Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and produced by Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton, the producers of 300, as well as Ryan Kavanaugh (Dear John, The Dark Fields).
