'Superman' Stuntman Went to VT

Posted:

Blacksburg, VA – It turns out Superman's stuntman is a Hokie.

Paul Darnell is Henry Cavill's stuntman in the new movie "Man of Steel."

Darnell graduated from Virginia Tech in 2005 with a degree in human nutrition, foods and exercise. He was also on the gymnastics team.

Darnell says after graduation, he packed up and headed West to California.

For the movie, Darnell had to work out with his trainer starting at 4:30 a.m. Monday through Friday.

If you want to spot him in the new movie, look fast. Darnell says that during the few scenes he's in, he's in the Superman suit.

Darnell, however, does make a cameo at the beginning as the guard Russell Crowe takes out.
