"Awe." That's what the creators behind the latest Superman flick wanted to convey through their Clark Kent.

Among the many reasons why Henry Cavill was selected to play Superman (one being that he's incredibly handsome), producer Deborah Snyder shared with EI News at the New York premiere of Man of Steel the defining moment that lead the team to make the decision.

"The clincher was our suit wasn't ready so we were doing a screen test. And we put him in the old Christopher Reeve suit 'cause it's all we had," she said.

"And even though that suit was many years old, he put it in and stepped out of that trailer and everyone was in awe of him. And we knew at that moment that he was our Superman."
