Looking super, man! Even Henry Cavill's casual clothes couldn't hide his muscular physique as he left Los Angeles' LAX airport yesterday

He's the British actor chosen to take on the role of Superman in the highly-anticipated comic book adaptation Man Of Steel.

But even when he is off the set of the movie, Henry Cavill's superhero physique is clear to see.

The 28-year-old actor donned a casual grey jumper and jeans as he left Los Angeles' LAX Airport yesterday.

Muscular: Henry has worked hard to get into the best shape possible for the role in upcoming action movie Man Of Steel

However, nothing could hide Henry's buff frame, as he smiled for photographers while toting his suitcase through the airport.

Henry, who is most well known for his role in hit TV show The Tudors, has spoken previously about how he got in shape to play the superhero in the upcoming film.

Talking about his diet and exercise plan, Cavill said recently: 'I’m on 5000 calories a day… You’ve got to eat protein first, then a little bit of carbs…you’ve got to keep your hunger levels going.

'I’m training two and a half hours a day, pushing my body beyond its normal limits, putting on a lot of muscle mass and just making myself look like Superman.'

And while Henry also showed off his physique in recent film The Immortals, he said he had to get into a different shape for the Superman film.

He explained: 'It's going to be a different kind of shape. When you see the Immortals shape you'll see what I mean. It'll be fine-tuned and tweaked as we go along.

'But I think it's going to be a different sort of shape from Immortals.'

Man Of Steel, due for release in 2013, also stars Amy Adams and Clark Kent's fellow Daily Planet reporter Lois Lane.

And talking about taking on the role in a recent interview, Adams said: 'What I love about Lois Lane is that she's been very consistently strong, successful, independent. I'm very attracted to that.

'What I loved about her was that she was able to be smart and be feminine and I think that that's something I know I'm going to teach my daughter, that you don't have to be a man to be powerful.

'You can be a powerful woman.'
