Superhero movies are all about the classics, they have classic storytelling and the most loved storylines that comic books can offer. Henry Cavill’s Superman was one such example. His portrayal of the Kryptonian hero certainly turned heads and the absolutely massive impact he had on the world of pop culture was one that no one can ever dream of forgetting.

One thing that is almost certain when bringing the world of two dimensions into the live-action formats is that not everything will be the same. Certain changes exist no matter what the source medium may be. However, Cavill was utmostly happy about Zack Snyder switching up his storyline with Amy Adams. It was no longer the classic tale of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, but rather, it was something different that could stand on its own.

Henry Cavill Appreciates a Realistic Relationship with Amy Adams’ Lois Lane

Henry Cavill became an iconic celebrity, not just because of his domination with the character of Superman, but how he carried the entirety of it. Zack Snyder made a great number of changes when it came to bringing Superman to life in Man of Steel. According to Gizmodo, one change in particular sat extremely well with Cavill.

“If we’re trying to base it [on] reality, there’s no way that Lois has these direct interactions with Superman, and then doesn’t recognize Clark sitting next to her in the office,” Cavill said. “If she falls in love with Superman, and she’s ignoring a guy who looks just like Superman, behaves just like him, and has the same kind of mannerisms and behavior, then what does that say about Lois? I like this relationship. She saves him just as much as he saves her.”

For him, it is the reality of the situation that would become the elephant in the room if someone who interacts with Superman on a daily basis cannot recognize the uncanny similarities the superhero shares with her co-worker, Clark Kent.

Henry Cavill saw the realistic point of view in which Man of Steel was leaning towards. He prefers things the way that Zack Snyder narrated them to be and understands that not everything can be just as the comics intended them to be. He likes the way the relationship flows, from both ends. Amy Adams‘ Lois Lane saves Clark just as much as Superman saves her.

This is something that is also beautifully portrayed in Superman and Lois. The series also focuses on their lives as a whole and how they both are there for each other, saving each other in their own best ways.
