Henry Cavill Reveals Superman’s Diet and Justice League Pre-Production Dates

Henry Cavill reveals Superman’s diet and Justice League pre-production dates on The Tonight Show.

The Tonight Show host, Jimmy Fallon, had an interesting conversation with Henry Cavill, who is out promoting his latest film, The Man from U.N.C.L.E. Fallon starts by showing off Cavill’s cover photo on the September issue of Men’s Health U.K. Magazine, then moves quickly into conversation about Superman training.

Fallon asks, “You’re Superman, you have to be in good shape…. When you go on the diet as Superman, what does Superman eat?”

A coy Cavill replies, “He eats a lot of things.” But, when pressed further, he relents, “When I’m mass building, I’ll eat burgers and stuff.” As for cardio, Cavill engages in “running,” but alludes to more carnal activities – with considerable reaction from The Tonight Show audience.

While the cardio plan might be in full swing, it’s hard to believe burgers will be on Superman’s menu these days, as Cavill revealed pre-production on Justice League begins in January!

Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice starring Henry Cavill as Superman, alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman, is scheduled for a March 25, 2016 release.
