Actor Henry Cavill has left audiences breathless with his portrayal of Superman in the recently released Batman V Superman, but the actor almost missed his chance to get the role. As he tells Conan O'Brien, Cavill was busy playing World of Warcraft when director Zack Snyder called to say that he first got the role for Man of Steel.

Go here to watch the clip and hear Cavill tell the brief, but dramatic story. Thank goodness it all worked itself out!
