A sex scene he filmed for 'The Tudors' several years ago left him standing to attention, to his embarrassment.
British movie star Henry Cavill has revealed his embarrassment at a time he accidentally got an “unacceptable” erection during filming of a sex scene for BBC period drama ‘The Tudors’.
The Hollywood heavy hitter was a part of the historical series based on the reign of Henry VIII, which ran for four seasons between 2007 and 2010. However, one particular moment left him mortified after a scene he shot with a girl with “spectacular breasts” made him rather aroused.
Henry Cavill was talking to Men's Fitness when he made the hilarious - and cringe-worthy - revelation
After battling Batman will Henry Cavill’s next role be opposite Christian Grey?
He’s about to return to our screens as Superman in the upcoming Dawn of Justice, but the current Man of Steel Henry Cavill is rumoured to have signed on to another big franchise, but this one’s a lot kinkier. The British hunk is said to have joined the cast of sequel Fifty Shades Darker, playing Anastasia Steele’s sexy boss Jack Hyde.
Will Henry Cavil be starring in Fifty Shades Darker?
But while nothing’s been confirmed, Cavill didn’t do much to put an end to the rumours during a recent interview with E! When asked if he really had signed up for Fifty Shades Darker the actor replied, "Basically, what I can say is I can't say anything about it right now.”

Clark Kent is a reporter for the Daily Planet in his everyday life, but a much hated alien powerhouse beneath the earthly guise. As Superman he has the power to destroy the world and, even though he would never dream of it, the world wants him gone. Even his efforts to become the ultimate hero go unappreciated, in particular by his Gotham rival Bruce Wayne; a billionaire vigilante known as Batman by night. He believes Superman is to blame for all the horror the Earth has been faced with, and vows to take him despite his limited abilities. It isn't long before the two are forced to unite, however, in order to protect the citizens of Earth from a real threat that could prove to thrust the planet into oblivion.
Eisenberg, who plays Lex Luthor in the upcoming 'Batman v Superman' movie, was part of a Q&A panel at the San Diego convention.
Jesse Eisenberg apparently didn’t enjoy being at Comic-Con, likening his experience at the massive convention to “some kind of genocide”. We know the crowds can be a little forceful, but seriously?
Giving a reaction to this year’s annual sci-fi and comic fest to the Associated Press on Monday (July 13th), the actor made the somewhat questionable remarks. “It is like being screamed at by thousands of people,” he reflected, “I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.”

After debuting at Comic Con over the weekend the extra-long Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice trailer is finally online.
A new full length trailer for the highly anticipated Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice has just hit online, offering fans their best look yet at the upcoming clash between the two comic book titans. Debuting at Comic Con this weekend the trailer was well received by fans who found plenty to talk about including Jesse Eisenberg's menacing Lex Luthor.
The nearly four minute trailer showcases Ben Affleck's Batman and Henry Cavill's Superman, while also heavily featuring Eisenberg as the villainous Luther. It also offers our first real look at Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jeremy Irons as butler Alfred Pennyworth, while also including Holly Hunter, Laurence Fishburne, Diane Lane and Amy Adams as Lois Lane.
America and Russia have never seen eye to eye, but they do have some of the best government spies the world has to offer. Now's the time to put their differences aside in a bid to fight the real enemy - crime - as an international organised gang find themselves in possession of an atomic bomb powerful enough to kill billions. Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin, American and Russian agents respectively, are thrust together as a team to hunt down the criminals and save the world, returning the destructive weapon to the CIA. However, predictably, it's not the most comfortable of duos, but perhaps these competitive professionals can use their animosity usefully, because they're about to face off against some unlikely and dangerous suspects.
The Hollywood hunk will reportedly direct, co-write and star in a standalone Batman film after appearing in Zack Snyder's 'Dawn of Justice'.
Comic-book fans: prepare to cheer, boo - or tell us you already knew - Ben Affleck is expected to be officially named as the director of a standalone Batman movie in which he'll also star as the caped crusader.
Is Ben Affleck going behind the camera for a forthcoming Batman film?
Deadline reports that Affleck is teaming up with DC Comics' chief creative officer Geoff Johns to write the movie, and the script could even be ready by the end of this summer. With Zack Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice reaching cinemas in March next year, and the director's Justice League Part One pencilled in for November 2017, it's not yet clear when this new Affleck-helmed Batman title will slot in.

Napoleon Solo and Illya Kuryakin are American and Russian government agents respectively - and an unlikely team given America's long history with the European nation. Unfortunately for them, whether they like each other or not, they have no choice but to band together to save the world from a deadly threat. A criminal organisation with global membership have managed to get their hands on an atom bomb with which they could destroy billions of lives, so they have to investigate to ensure it's returned safely to the American government before anyone can get hurt. Along the way though they meet some unlikely suspects, including femme fatale Victoria Vinciguerra, and team up with another feisty agent named Gaby Teller. They are willing to do anything to succeed in their mission. They have the skills to save the world. They are U.N.C.L.E.
When an alien lifeform crashed to Earth decades ago, no one noticed. When his own kind came after him, the fate of the world was threatened. When he saved mankind, they looked up to him like a God. But times have changed, and people have died since his arrival. The world has had enough of the "false God" Superman (Henry Cavill), but there is already another hero in the world. In Gotham City, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) has spent years and billions of dollars making himself into the greatest detective and the finest crime fighter. But the Batman knows that one does not simply arrive to a thunderous applause. He has earned his role as judge and jury, and it is up to him to stop the Man of Steal.

Batman and Superman go head to head in the new trailer for 'Dawn of Justice'.
The first trailer for the DC crossover movie 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' has finally arrived - and it's difficult to tell who's most formidable, despite the fact that one superhero has earned his power, and the other was gifted at birth.
'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' is coming next year
Zack Snyder is returning with the sequel to 2013's Superman adventure 'Man Of Steel', and it's our first taste of The Justice League as they hit theaters for the first time. While the plot remains unknown, we can gather that the world has become disillusioned with Clark Kent (Henry Cavill); mistrusting of him given humanity's history with power and corruption, and fearful that their faiths are being questioned.
Zack Synder has shared the real version of 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' after a pirated version, filmed on a mobile phone, leaks online.
Director Zack Synder did not despair when the exclusive trailer of Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice was leaked online on Thursday. The grainy footage, shot on a mobile phone camera, immediately went viral and certainly did not do justice to the true version.
Ben Affleck as Batman in Batman v. Superman.
We're not saying it was a ploy by the Hollywood Hype Machine, but...
As far as publicity goes, the leaked Batman vs. Superman trailer may have worked in the movie’s favour. Sure, the early release meant it sort of clashed with the first look at Star Wars: Episode VII, but then this probably means that the superhero showdown will get an extra day of hype, once the actual, legit trailer drops/is released by the studio for real.
The shaky, second-hand recording of the trailer was only on YouTube for minutes, before being taken down, but it was enough to generate pages and pages of coverage, because, you know, content is kind of like gold for entertainment writers.
The trailer is our first real look at Ben Affleck as Batman - but not quite yet.

Homer's 'Odyssey' will be adapted into a movie by the team behind 'The Hunger Games' trilogy. We asked a group of Classics students which actor would play Odysseus in their ideal film and selected the top six choices.
Homer's Odyssey finally has the epic (pun more definitely intended) directing, writing and producing team it deserves. Fresh from working on The Hunger Games trilogy, Francis Lawrence is set to direct, Peter Craig to write and Nina Jacobson to produce the upcoming film.
Sean Bean was top of the list of ideal actors to play Odysseus.

Eisenberg has gone bald for Zack Snyder’s upcoming superhero film.
In a year from now we’ll probably be queuing outside a movie theatre eagerly awaiting our first viewing of Zack Snyder’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. But for now, we’re just making do with whatever scraps of information we can get on the upcoming superhero epic. So after months of speculation about the state of cast member Jesse Eisenberg’s hair, today we’ve been given our first official look at the actor as the bald supervillain, Lex Luthor.
'Game Of Thrones' star looks forbidding in Zack Snyder's first image.
Fans were given a first look at the forthcoming film incarnation of Aquaman, with director Zack Snyder reveals just how menacing Jason Momoa will be as the sea-dwelling DC Comics superhero as 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice' gets well under way.
Jason Momoa is Aquaman
It's all about DC at the moment with Henry Cavill's Superman having become a huge hit in 2013's 'Man Of Steel' and 'Fast And Furious' star Gal Gadot being announced as Wonder Woman in Michelle MacLaren's upcoming movie. Zack Snyder is bringing them all together in a long-awaited DC superhero crossover movie entitled 'Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice', and 'Game Of Thrones' star Jason Momoa is just the latest announcement for the cast - as fish-friendly King of Atlantis, Aquaman.
Throughout the early 1960s, the Cold War was in full swing. Two agents, one from Russia and one from America are at each other's throats throughout the conflict. Napoleon Solo (Henry Cavill) is a CIA agent, known for his suave and womanising nature. Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) is a KGB known for his brutality and deadly efficiency. When a criminal organisation sprouts from former Nazi soldiers, Russia and America temporarily put aside their differences to find a solution to the problem. Unfortunately, getting the two men (who have made a career out of trying to kill one another) to work together, may not be as easy as it seems.

The Man From U.N.C.L.E looks pretty awesome.
The first trailer for Guy Ritchie's take on the iconic 1960s spy series The Man from U.N.C.L.E has rolled out online and the British filmmaker appears to have made a movie - or at least attempted to make a movie - that is stylish, humorous and action-packed.
Henry Cavill replaced Tom Cruise in The Man From U.N.C.L.E
In the big-screen adaptation, Henry Cavill plays Napoleon Solo, a slick American spy who teams up with Russian Illya Kuryakin (Armie Hammer) to stop a rogue organization that is fully nuclear equipped. The duo's only real lead is the daughter of a vanished German scientist who is key to infiltrating the shadowy organization. They now face a race against time to save the world - which just sounds awesome, doesn't it?

Warner Bros is going big on DC Comics movies, right up until 2020.
In a huge announcement of forthcoming releases, Warner Bros has bet big on DC Comics-branded movies to follow its marquee release of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2015. That movie, starring Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck, will be followed by The Flash with Ezra Miller, Aquaman starring Jason Momoa and a Wonder Woman movie with Gal Gadot.
Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will start a slew of comic-book movies from Warner Bros over the next six years
Gadot was the surprise choice for the female role in Dawn of Justice though Warners are clearly buoyed by the Israeli actress's performances in the forthcoming movie. Maybe Marvel should take note and finally announce a Black Widow movie with Scarlett Johansson.

Are Scoot McNairy socks a green screen for The Flash? Or just a weird fashion statement?
With Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman and Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman all making solid appearances in 2016's 'Batman v Superman' movie, we can't help but wonder who else will be joining the Justice League. Right now, our bets are on Scoot McNairy as The Flash.
Scoot McNairy to play The Flash?
The casting announcements for Zack Snyder's 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' have been both thoroughly exciting and extremely surprising. Of course, we knew Henry Cavill would return as the Man of Steel, we spent hours pondering who could play Wonder Woman before Gal Gadot was chosen and we were pleased on the announcement of Ben Affleck taking over Christian Bale as the Dark Knight. Rumours are still circulating that Jason Momoa might be joining the team as Aquaman, but the thing we're most excited for at the moment are recent whispers of Scoot McNairy taking on The Flash.
Marvel stayed strong and Warner Bros. moved first and changed the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice release date to March 2015.
The collaboration of Batman and Superman, two of DC Comics most intense superheroes, has been a project highly anticipated for fans all over the globe for some years now. With Batman’s tortured past and complex present depicted magnificently in Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy and Superman’s difficulties in combining his Krypton heritage and his life on Earth given dramatic integrity in Zack Synder’s Man of Steel, in the film which combined the two, the stage was set for a motion picture filled with complicated emotions, spectacular drama and a lot of action.
The collaboration of DC Comics Batman and Superman has been widely anticipated
But perhaps, when fans were dreaming of this dynamic duo and the endless possibilities that the pairing and film could bring, they did not anticipate the rise of Marvel and its own brand of exciting and enthralling superheroes.
Batman v Superman has been brought forward, to avoid a battle with 'Captain America 3'.
Warner Bros has brought forward Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice - the follow-up to Man of Steel with Ben Affleck playing the Caped Crusader - to March 25, 2016. The movie had previously been set to open on May 6, 2016 - the same day as Marvel's 'Captain America 3'.
In truth, those dates were never going to remain fixed and it was Warner Bros that decided to make the first move (though it's likely the studios came to a mutual agreement). The studio has also revealed plans to release new DC Comics-based movies on August 5, 2016, June 23, 2017, November 17, 2017, March 23, 2018, July 27, 2018, April 5, 2019, June 14, 2019, April 3, 2020 and June 19, 2020.

Which films were on the brink of a completely different lead star?
With Robert Downey Jr fitting so perfectly as likeable irritant Tony Stark, Christian Bale slipping so easily into the tortured billionaire psyche of Bruce Wayne and Daniel Day-Lewis transforming himself into the epitome of Abraham Lincoln, it's hard to believe that for all of the above roles, there were some serious previous contenders. But contenders there were and some of the not entirely savoury.
Tom Cruise as Iron Man
The pint-sized action hero made it his mission impossible to kick ass as IMF agent, Ethan Hunt, but could he have romanced Pepper Potts in quite the same way as Robert Downey Jr's Iron Man? It seems like we very nearly found out with Cruise at one point in serious contention to play the arrogant but entertaining genius.

Welcome to the gun show, aka Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman look.
Oh, hey Marvel, good luck trying to top DC’s Comic-Con panel this year. On Saturday, the crowd in Hall H got their first glimpse of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman in the upcoming Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice film. And it was cool.

His casting as the new Batman may have ruffled a few feathers, but Ben Affleck has just earned the seal of approval from one very important man: the original caped crusader, Adam West.
There are still two years to go before we see Ben Affleck take on the mantel of Bruce Wayne/Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but the argument about the Oscar winner's suitability for the role rages on. Today one very worthy commentator gave his thoughts on the subject- Adam West, who played Batman from 1966 to 1968 in a staggering 120 episodes of the eponymous television series as well as the 1966 film.
Affleck has the Adam West stamp of approval
Speaking at San Diego Comic Con, West had only compliments for his successor. "My feeling is that Ben Affleck will be really good simply because he's a great talent, and I'd be very interested in seeing him in the role."

Director Zack Snyder gives comic book fans a sneak peek at the new Batman outfit.
Fans at this year’s Comic-Con at San Diego have been treated to a preview of the new Batman costume. The new design will be worn by Ben Affleck in the next instalment of the Batman series, which will be directed by Zack Snyder. The film will see Affleck’s Dark Knight alongside Superman, which itself will be Henry Cavill’s second portrayal of the man from Krypton after last year’s Man Of Steel.
Director Zack Snyder's designs for the new Batman costume to be worn by Ben Affleck
The project, currently with the working title Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice, is tipped for release in May 2016. Work has already begun on the film, which also stars Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor and Amy Adams as Lois Lane. Most importantly, it's the first time that both Batman and Superman will share the big screen.

Your weekly dose of Justice League news. With the release date two years away, Warner are beginning the steady stream of teasers.
Hello, remember that ill-advised attempt at a Justice League franchise Warner Bros. is still pushing at? If so, then you may be interested in seeing a sneak peek at Henry Cavill, being his Supermanliest in the upcoming movie. The photo comes almost two months after director/Hollywood golden boy Zack Snyder tweeted the first picture of an oh-so-moody Ben Affleck as Batman. This time, it’s an oh-so-moody Cal-El. Check out the photo below.
Get your first peek of the Batman v Superman movie below
The first official, bona fide, straight from the horse’s mouth, genuine image from Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has arrived, and it sees Henry Cavill as the caped superhero once more.
He’s standing fully clad in his Superman gear, looking into the camera with a forlorn expression. The whether is pretty terrible; maybe that’s got something to do with it. Or maybe he’s waiting to meet Batman.
The keen fans amongst you will have already noticed that Metropolis probably isn’t the city in the background. No, what we’re looking at is likely director Zak Snyder’s first attempt at Gotham City.
The cast of the 2016 movie - and a possible "Justice League" - is shaping up.
It has been confirmed: DC now has its Aquaman and it’s none other than Jason Momoa. The news that Momoa will play the DC Comics superhero Aquaman in both the upcoming Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, and its sequel Justice League was confirmed by Variety, after months of heavy speculation.
Momoa cleverly brushed off the Aquaman rumors, right until his contract was confirmed.
Back in December, it was reported that Momoa was in talks to play Aquaman, in addition to the already announced main cast, which includes Henry Cavill as Superman, Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Diana Prince/Wonder Woman, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor (that announcement raised a fair few eyebrows) and Jeremy Irons as Alfred.
'The Justice League' are coming, but who exactly are they?
The subtitle for Zack Snyder’s upcoming Batman v Superman movie has been officially announced as Dawn of Justice, meaning it's pretty clear where this one is going. We already knew that a Justice League movie was next on Snyder’s list, but the subtitle certainly implies that this movie will serve as a set up for the fourth instalment. But who are the Justice League and why should we be excited to see them together on screen?
Justice League director, Zack Snyder
Superhero collectives don’t get much bigger than The Justice League, that is, if you ignore the Avengers. But for DC Comics, The Justice League has been their ultimate team of superheroes since the 1960s.
