Lennix, who also starred in the Matrix, will be playing the role of General Swanwick in the Man of Steel hitting theaters in 2013.
Q: And I know you can’t say much on “Man of Steel” but how exciting was it to get that role?
HL: Oh man! “Man of Steel” is going to be a very big deal when it comes out in 2013. I was like a kid in a candy shop. Superman has always been my favorite superhero, it’s not even close. I guess a close second would be Spider-Man, but I’ve always been a fan of Superman since I was a little boy. As a teenager I saw the reboot with Christopher Reeve and I’ve watched that many, many times, and the second one with Christopher Reeve many, many times. To be a part of something this traditional and this foundational to the American myth is a great honor and I’m pleased to say I have a good role in it and I was honored to have been a part of the whole process.
