MAN OF STEEL

The latest cover of Total Film Magazine features "Man of Steel" co-stars Henry Cavill and Amy Adams, with a feature on the film inside.

Speaking with Total Film, Cavill discussed the film's approach to Superman and emphasized the modernity of the character in Snyder's take on the franchise.

"This is a Superman for a modern age. It's not betraying anything that Superman is, but it is grounding everything in reality," Cavill told Total Film. "It's the story of this incredible being who can do incredible things, but whom we can associate with. Because he's gone through troubling stuff and had to make tough choices."

X-MenFilms.com has posted a segment from Heat Radio where the actor apparently states Alan Cumming will return to the X-Men universe.

"It's huge, the cast is huge," McAvoy told Heat Radio. "You got me, [Jennifer Lawrence, Michael Fassbender,] Nicholas Hoult will be back, and he's just blossoming massively over [in America]. Patrick Stewart, Ian Mckellen, Halle Berry, Alan Cumming, Peter Dinklage I hear mentioned -- I don’t know if that’s happening -- 'Huge' Jackman is coming by, he's massive, 7'5" and muscley."

The "X-Men: Days of Future Past" talk starts at 4:42.

Shawn Ashmore spoke with EW about his return to the franchise as Iceman.

"As negotiations were happening, there was definitely some communication over what the broad strokes of the character will be and what the storyline is so I have an idea," Ashmore told EW. "I do specifically know what my part is in broad strokes. I can’t wait. I'm so excited. The fact that not only do we get to reunite and play around with a lot of the actors from the original three [films] but also these two worlds combining is kind of incredible."

Finally, Singer continues his Twitter escapades with a new behind-the-scenes photo.

Dane DeHaan spoke with MTV about his role as Harry Osborn in the sequel and reuniting with fellow actor Chris Cooper.

"I made my first ever movie with Chris Cooper, this movie 'Amigo' directed by John Sayles, we made in the Philippines four years ago," DeHaan told MTV. "And at the time I was a little scared of him, but he was so nice to me and I really, honestly, I have moments looking back on it where I truly looked up to him. So I’m really excited that he’s playing my father, because I think he’s just amazingly talented and I look up to him like a father and I think that that relationship will be really easy to form, for sure."

THE WALKING DEAD

Andrew Lincoln spoke with MTV about the non-violent summit between the Governor and Rick Grimes this past weekend.

"It turned into something really interesting," Lincoln told MTV News. "There were more mind games, two men sizing each other up, and trying to come to some semblance of an agreement. It was fun. We didn't really talk so much when we were working together because of the nature of the atmosphere in the room, but it was great to get these two men in the same room, to see how they respond to each other."

KICK ASS 2

Fandango spoke with Jim Carrey at SXSW, where the actor spoke briefly about his role in "Kick-Ass 2."

"It's going to be fun. It's different for me," Carrey told Fandango. "They called me up and said we want you to play this ex-Mafia enforcer, Sam DeStefano style. So I looked at myself in the mirror and went 'okay, might have to do some work'. I got my own makeup guys together and we just started experimenting and it's amazing how little you have to do to completely change your personality. We came up with a guy that no one is going to recognize as me. It's so far away from anything that you've seen. It's really fun."
