Man of Steel. Henry Cavill is the heir of a jinxed role. Know the history of one of the most famous characters of all time: Superman!


Man of Steel

Superman was born in 1932, in a comic written by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Afterwards, Superman was published in some newspapers and dramatized on radio serial. In 1941, an animated film made Superman universally known.

From then, different actors have played the role of this athletic alien with superpowers. See the list:

In 1948, Kirk Alyn starred the first Superman movie. Two years later, George Reeves (who committed suicide) got great success. In 1966, Bob Holiday was the protagonist in a musical in Broadway: It’s a Bird, It’s a Plane, It’s Superman! The most famous has been Christopher Reeve in 1978 and the latter are Dean Cain (Superman New Adventures, 1993), Tom Welling (Smalville series, 2001), and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns, 2006).

Thus, the first actor to star the super hero was Kirk Alyn in the film Atom Man vs Superman. However, George Reeves was much more famous. Tall and handsome, nobody knew him until he played the role of Man of Steel in the modest movie Superman and the Mole-Men. Reeves kept on being Superman in TV series. He never could play another role and desperate, he committed suicide: 45 years old!

In 1978, Christopher Reeve played the most famous Man of Steel, a blockbuster that grossed $ 300 million. He starred other three Superman movies but in 1995, he was paralyzed in a riding accident.

In this moment, the legend of Superman as a jinxed role started.

Now, Henry Cavill is the last actor who joins this peculiar club of Supermen.

Man of Steel has been directed by Zack Snyder (300 and Watchmen) and produced by Christopher Nolan (Batman). Man of Steel is the great film event this summer!

Yareah magazine hopes that Henry Cavill had good luck and the hex finishes.

Have a nice week! Art is Everywhere!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
