One features the voice of Kevin Costner, who plays Kent's adoptive father Jonathan Kent, while the other features the voice of Russell Crowe, who plays Kent's biological father Jor-El.

Henry Cavill in no stranger to strength training, having to prepare for "The Tudors" and "Man of Steel," but the actor said the preparation for "Immortals" was beyond anything he'd experienced before.

"We were given certain briefs which changed while we were training and they wanted photographic evidence of how I was doing, so it was very difficult initially," Cavill said in an interview provided by Relativity Media. "When we finally got our groove and we got our final brief of what we were going to look like, we just trained and trained and trained and trained and trained and trained. It was eight hours a day, five days a week in the gym. It was a crazy amount of training that we did... When it came to learning all the choreography, all the stunts, it wasn't as taxing as it could have been."
