HENRY CAVILL: 'Fifty Shades of Grey' at CinemaCon: Producer talks film, Henry Cavill attends (Photos) FIFTY SHADES OF GREYAPRIL 18, 2013BY: BARBIE KAVETSKY (EXAMINER)

The biggest surprise of CinemaCon 2013 was the appearance of Henry Cavill. While many would expect the new Superman to be seen at the Warner Bros. presentation of exclusive content, Cavill was photographed by Sipa Press with girlfriend Gina Carano with the caption, "Henry Cavill and Gina Carano attend as Universal Pictures presents their slate." Henry has no future projects with Universal but Gina Carano is currently promoting "The Fast and the Furious 6." Henry Cavill has long been a favorite to play Christian Grey in the "Fifty Shades of Grey" film.

Henry Cavill has deep roots with "Fifty Shades of Grey." As Stephanie Meyer's first choice to play Edward in the "Twilight" series, Cavill could be seen as inspiration for E L James' more mature version of the same character in her fan fiction, which eventually became the "Fifty Shades" trilogy. Many fans also speculate that James, a London resident, used Cavill's British Dunhill Fragrance ad as additional inspiration for the character of Christian, from sports cars to helicopters, the advertisement is reminiscent of the billionaire CEO.

Casting the "Man of Steel" in such an erotic and racy film is a dicey move which may be the reason behind a delayed announcement. Warner Bros. would not be thrilled with controversy before the Superman revamp hits theaters June 14. While there is no confirmation that Henry Cavill has any connection to "Fifty Shades of Grey," there are plenty of fans hoping E L James has her heart set on the actor. Cavill himself said of the film,"whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made, it would be a very different kind of thing than Man of Steel."

Fifty Shades of Grey and its two sequels has become famous for its unconventional contents and viral marketing. E.L.James has hit the jackpot. But I have doubts if there is anything more achieved through these books. It is essentially a Mills & Boons with adult content of Penthouse letters, perhaps with a little more detailing of psyche and less graphical detailing of those acts. BDSM is a less known word, which kindles more curiosity, and people may not mind reading it once for its lucid narrative and juicy content....but then? Well, Airport trashcans may be another source where this book may be available, albeit secondhand!
