2/1/2012 - EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- Actor Henry Cavill took a break from the rigorous shooting schedule for the Warner Brothers film "Man of Steel" to meet with Edwards Airmen, pose for photographs, and sign autographs at the Joshua Tree Dining Facility here Jan. 31.

More than 100 Airmen filled the dining facility from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., where each received an autographed "Man of Steel" lithograph, and had the option of taking a photograph with Cavill.

"It was great that he took the time out of his busy schedule to do something so wonderful for the military," said Senior Airman Lyndee Bennett, 95th Security Forces Squadron. "He was incredibly nice. It's amazing how an event like this humanizes the actors. I really enjoyed the opportunity to meet him."

Airman Bennett, is a fan of the Showtime series, "The Tudors," and recognized Cavill from the show. When the opportunity arose for her to meet the actor, she knew she had to be a part of it.

"I was originally interested in the autograph session because I'm a huge fan of his series 'The Tudors,' the fact that he's filming 'Man of Steel' at Edwards just made the experience that much better," said Bennett.

Cavill, the Man of Steel himself, was more than happy to show his support for the military.

"I have such great respect for military members and what they do," Cavill said . "It's important that they know how valuable their service is. It is a pleasure to tell them how much they're appreciated."

Cavill, who plays Superman in the upcoming film, "Man of Steel," has a strong connection to the military, with two brothers currently serving; one as a tank commander and the other as a Royal Marine.

The autograph session was a unique opportunity for Cavill to give back to servicemembers who stepped up to play critical roles in the "Man of Steel" movie, through their roles as extras or their impressive logistical support.

"It was a really nice gesture on Henry's part to show how much he supports us and what we do," said Staff Sgt. Thomas Roach, 95th Security Forces Squadron. "It was a great morale boost to meet someone famous and get an autograph for my daughter."

What a Awesome guy! Taking time to show support to our troops. Of course he is Superman!


"Although Lex Luthor is your ultimate opponent, you will triumph over him, and when you show yourself to the will be a different age than ours, Clark. A silver age of heroism...that will start when they look up into the sky at you...with hope for tomorrow. You will help everyone to embrace it."-Dr Fate

Now that's awesome! Cavill is a real stand up guy! He's definitely doing the character of Superman a lot of good, and we haven't even seen the movie yet.
