Henry Cavill on those Fifty Shades Of Grey rumours…

Fifty Shades Of Superman, anyone?

by Laurence Mozafari |

It had been rumoured that Henry Cavill was joining fellow British heart-throb Jamie Dornan in the cast of *Fifty Shades *for the upcoming sequel, Fifty Shades Darker.

These rumours had pegged Superman to be taking on the role of Jack Hyde, Anastasia Steele's publishing house boss, who has the hots for her. In the book it describes him as "a man with with sensual blue eyes that can pierce your heart".

Henry Cavill has blue eyes and is also a man, so things seemed promising, especially when he told E!: "Basically what I can say is I can't say anything about it right now".


However, we managed to get a definitive answer out of the Man Of Steel. When asked about the rumours he was doing a Fifty Shades sequel, Henry's co-star, Armie Hammer, jumped in and said: "He's doing it. Totally doing it. Absoloutely doing it. He confided in me earlier, I'm sorry to break your trust. He's definitely doing it."

But Henry soon put an end to the jokes and told us: "It would be a lot of fun to continue this rouse, but I'm not doing it. No.

Armie Hammer, who was sat with Henry promoting their new film Man From U.N.C.L.E, jumped in and added "yet", just to raise our suspicions. However, Henry quashed the hopes of Fifty Shades fans by denying it yet again and saying the whole thing had just got "confused".

So there you have it. Henry Cavill ISN'T doing Fifty Shades Darker, sorry. Here's a picture of Henners without his shirt on so you can console yourselves.


Fifty Shades Of Grey London premiere: Dakota Johnson wows in white, Jamie Dornan looks sooo suave plus all the other looks

Ashley Roberts

The former Pussycat Doll decided to go for fifty shades of gold instead of grey, with her blazer unfortunately looking like a child got their hands on some metallic Sharpies. Looks like she lost a button on the way there too, poor love

Nadia Sawalha and Sherrie Hewson

Denise looked amazing (if not a little chilly) in her monochrome co-ords

Sadie Frost

Eeeek. We like her sleek bob very much, but those diamante ring details are a bit too Walford for our liking

E.L. James

Author E.L. James must be pretty minted by now, right? She chose a dazzling floor-length gown for her big night

How very appropes with the theme of the evening, eh?

It was all about the plunge for Jamelia. We're not so keen on the boob-revealing frock but we heart the shoes

Sharleen Spiteri

Yes, there is such a thing as too much leather

Dakota Johnson

The star of the show wowed in her flowing Saint Laurent gown with an embellished trim and a super plunging neckline. We're crushing on her vampy lips too

Mr Grey himself looked as dashing as ever, with his stunning wife Amelia by his side donning a chic printed frock. We want your pixie cut, Amelia! And your hubby. But we'll settle for your hair
