Henry Cavill: He played five roles you didn’t know he did. 

In preparation for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., we look at five Henry Cavill movie roles that we didn’t expect him to play. 

In preparation for The Man from U.N.C.L.E., we look at five Henry Cavill movie roles that we didn’t expect him to play. 

He made Superman his own in Man of Steel and he isn’t going to let go of the role. As Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice gets more and more attention, it can be hard to see Cavill in a role other than Superman, because he’s so well-known for that role. He’s starring in this week’s big-screen adaptation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E., where he plays an American spy in Guy Ritchie’s Cold War thriller. 

While Cavill may be best known for his role as Supes, it was not his first movie or TV show. Many people already know him from his long-running role on Showtime’s The Tudors as Charles Brandon, 1st Duke of Suffolk, which he says brought him to the United States. But he’s also played a lot of other roles that were even more interesting. 

Many of Henry Cavill’s works and shows can also be seen before you go to see The Man from U.N-C-L-E, so don’t forget to do that. As a way to help you, here are five roles that you might not have known were played by Henry Cavill: 

He was in Stardust with 5 of his friends (2007) 

Neil Gaiman wrote a best-selling book called Stardust. Matthew Vaughn made a movie based on the movie with a big cast, including Claire Danes, Charlie Cox, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Robert De Niro. He promises to bring his girlfriend Victoria (Sienna Miller) a fallen star when he sees that it’s actually a beautiful woman named Yvaine (Danes), who’s also wanted by three witches and the sons of a dead king, as well. Henry Cavill has a small part in the movie as Victoria’s boyfriend, Humphrey. 

A light and funny twist on the source material, Stardust is still a hit with the critics. The movie was praised for its adult take on fairy tales, but it was still a hit. Because the movie did so well, it even won a Hugo award for Best Dramatic Presentation. It was also nominated for a lot of other sci-fi awards. 

4 Albert Mondego played the Count of Monte Cristo in The Count of Monte Cristo (2002) 

People often forget that Henry Cavill played a very important role in the 2002 movie version of Alexandre Dumas’s The Count of Monte Cristo, but that’s not the case at all. It’s a story of betrayal and revenge. James Caviezel plays Edmond Dantes, a man who is framed for a crime he didn’t commit by his best friend, Fernand Mondego (Guy Pearce). To get a chance at Mercedes, Mondego makes Dantes look guilty (Dagmara Domiczyk). He plays Fernand Mondego’s son, Albert Mondego. When Dantes wants to get back at Mondego, he uses Albert as the key to finding his father. 

The movie, directed by Kevin Reynolds, was mostly liked by critics. While the film makes some changes to the source material, it had strong supporting actors and a good relationship between the two main characters that made it a lot more fun to watch. A major film was one of the first roles that Cavill had in a long time ago. 

The third book by Evan Marshall, Blood Creek, is called Blood Creek, and it is about (2009) 

It took him a while to get a lead role in a movie like Blood Creek that was very well-reviewed. It was about witchcraft that could be traced back to the Third Reich. They host a Nazi scholar named Michael Fassbender at their house in Virginia. Fassbender does occult experiments and traps the family inside. After Victor Marshall (Dominic Purcell) goes missing from a camping trip, his brother, Evan (Cavill), is surprised when Victor comes back with stories of crazy captors. The two brothers set out to get back at their captors. 

Critics didn’t like Blood Creek, even though it had a strong villain in Michael Fassbender, but that didn’t help it much. But it does have zombies, vampires, and the supernatural in it, which makes it fun to watch. 

A Hunter in Red Riding Hood (2006) 

When Superman made Red Riding Hood in 2006, it was a very different kind of movie than what you would expect from him. It was a mostly unsuccessful family musical that went straight to DVD in the United States. While their grandmother is babysitting them, two kids are told the story of Little Red Riding Hood. As they tell the story, they give their grandmother ideas on how to improve it. The new version of the classic story had a werewolf, an iPod, and pizza delivery. 

Henry Cavill is the actor who plays The Hunter, who comes in and saves Red on two separate times. One of the stars of the movie is *NSYNC’s Joey Fatone. He plays the big bad wolf in the movie. One thing that many people thought was weird was how The Hunter and Red had creepy feelings for each other. 

First, Therese wrote about immortals (2011) 

you didn’t know that Henry Cavill played immortal roles you didn’t know about. An action movie called Immortals is based on the Greek myth of Theseus. His first 3D movie and one of the last roles he did before becoming Superman (the other being The Cold Light of Day). In this movie, he played Theseus, a man chosen by Zeus (Luke Evans) to fight against King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke), who wanted to start a war against humanity and free all of the Titans. 

The movie got mixed reviews from critics. People thought the action was very creative, but they didn’t think the story was as exciting as it should have been. Still, it gave people a chance to see Cavill in a more physical role, which was a must before he could play Man of Steel.

Sigourney Weaver is coming back for Avatar 2 CRAZY!

In the first Avatar, Weaver’s scientist character died, but now she’s back as the protagonists’ adopted Na’vi daughter.

We were all surprised when we heard about 17 billion years ago that Sigourney Weaver would be back for James Cameron’s Avatar sequels (even more so than with the idea of there being multiple Avatar sequels). But now that we know how Weaver is going to come back, we’re even more confused.

AVATAR

Empire magazine has said that Weaver will play a completely different character in Avatar: The Way of Water. In the first movie, she played Dr. Grace Augustine, the creator of the Human-Na’vi switcheroo Avatar Program, who died at the end. And no, it’s not a human. It’s Jake and Neytiri’s daughter, who is about to turn 16.

Weaver will play Kiri, Jake and Neytiri’s adopted daughter. It looks like we’ll meet a lot of Jake and Neytiri’s family in The Way of Water. Weaver told Empire what it was like to play a digitized blue teenager, “I think we all pretty much remember how we felt when we were that age.” “Oh, yes, I do. When I was 11, I was 5’10” or 5’11” tall. I was sure Kiri would feel uncomfortable a lot of the time. She wants to find out who she is. When Jim gave me that task, I was thrilled.

Now, adults play children all the time, especially in the world of voice acting, and at least one of the photos Empire released of Kiri makes it look like Weaver will also show up as Dr. Augustine again in some way, probably through old footage. But knowing that the Na’vi are mostly brought to life by fancy mocap rigs, it will be strange to see Weaver’s physical performance put on a teenager. Even though he is a blue alien teen with long arms and legs, he is still a teen.

The movie Avatar: The Way of Water will come out in December 2022.

Disney will show new scenes from “Avatar: The Way of Water” 

Disney started its CineEurope presentation in Barcelona today with 12 minutes of footage from July’s Marvel fourquel Thor: Love and Thunder. Throughout the show, Disney showed trailers and looks at its other upcoming movies, including four never-before-seen scenes from James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.

Before the Thor footage, Disney’s Head of Global Theatrical Distribution Tony Chambers talked about the importance of immersive storytelling and the studio’s “robust, diverse slate.” This was followed by about 60 minutes of footage that was introduced by EMEA Head of Theatrical Distribution Nick Rush and EMEA Head of Studio Marketing Lee Jury.

There were prerecorded messages from people like Marvel boss Kevin Feige, who said, “It feels like we’re just getting started, even after 14 years.” As he introduced the Love And Thunder scenes, Thor star Chris Hemsworth said he wished he was in Barcelona, where the sangria “always tastes better.”

Harrison Ford sent a video for Lucasfilm’s Indiana Jones 5, saying that it had been 13 years since the last movie and that it was “time to put on the fedora and crack the whip.”

We also saw parts of Haunted Mansion, Pixar’s Elemental and Strange World, and the ensemble Amsterdam, which was directed by David O. Russell for New Regency.

Sam Mendes sent a video about Empire Of Light by Searchlight. The director of 1917 said that after making that movie, he wrote this one during lockdown. He said it was a “extremely personal story” about music, movies, and finding love in strange places.

Rebecca Kearey, the international head of Searchlight, showed a trailer for See How They Run, which stars Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan, and a teaser for The Banshees of Inisherin, which stars Colin Farrell and Brendan Gleeson, directed by Martin McDonagh. Searchlight also showed the first scene of Chevalier, which is about the son of an African slave and a French plantation owner who grows up to be a famous composer in France.

The next movie by Thor director Taika Waititi, Next Goal Wins, got an eight-minute sneak peek. The movie is about the American Samoa soccer team. In 2001, they lost to Australia 31-0, which was the worst loss in World Cup history. Michael Fassbender takes over as their new coach.

Disney’s show ended with a visit from Avatar producer Jon Landau, who flew from New Zealand to Barcelona to talk about the next movie in the series. He said that Avatar: The Way of Water was in the final stages of post-production and that it was important to be in Barcelona “to show our support for the exhibition community.”

Landau said that the strength of James Cameron’s scripts is that they have universal themes. “There is nothing more relatable than family,” he said before showing a message from Cameron.

Cameron from New Zealand said that the people working on Avatar were “pushing the limits even further… Every shot is made for the biggest screen and best resolution that can be achieved… I think this is what people want.” He also said, “Our business is not going away.”

Sigourney Weaver Reveals Her Unconventional Role in ‘Avatar: The Way of Water’

Weaver will portray Jake and Neytiri’s adoptive child.

Many pondered what type of role Sigourney Weaver would have in the sequel to James Cameron’s Avatar after the death of her character, Dr. Grace Augustine, who was the leader of the Avatar Program in the previous film. Finally, in an Empire Magazine exclusive, Weaver shared insights about the role she will portray in Avatar: The Way of Water, as well as a new photograph from the film.

Weaver announced to Empire Magazine that she would play Kiri, the adoptive daughter of Jake Sully (Sam Worthington) and Neytiri (Zoe Saldaa), in the film. “I believe we all remember what we were experiencing as teens,” Weaver told Empire Magazine exclusively. “I most definitely do. When I was 11, I was 5′ 10″ or 5′ 11″. I had a strong feeling Kiri would be uncomfortable a lot of the time. She’s trying to figure out who she is. Jim’s assignment of that task excited me.”

A fresh picture, which adds to the character’s mystery, has also been unveiled, hinting at some type of link that Kiri would have with Grace. Kiri is seen inside a lab, staring at a monitor with a recording of Grace on it. Despite not being biologically connected to Jake and Neytiri, Kiri seems to have human traits that other Na’vi do not have, such as five digits and eyebrows, adding to the character’s mystery.

Empire exclusive

With an obvious link between the two, as well as both characters being performed by the same actor, viewers can only guess on how significant Kiri’s involvement will be in the plot. The character will also appear on a subscriber-exclusive cover of Empire Magazine, which depicts her swimming underwater appreciating Pandora’s aquatic life, as shown in the first teaser.

Weaver and Cameron will work together again for Avatar: The Way of Water, having previously played Ellen Ripley in Aliens and Grace in the first Avatar film. Along with Weaver, Stephen Lang will reprise his role as Colonel Miles Quaritch, the man responsible for Grace’s death, in the sequel. Quaritch, like Weaver’s character, perished in the first film, fueling curiosity regarding his participation in Avatar: The Way of Water. While the roles of both actors remain unknown, fan speculation may continue until the highly anticipated film is released later this year.

On December 16, Avatar: The Way of Water will be released exclusively in cinemas.
