Henry Cavill is the next Superman
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
In a somewhat surprisingly early announcement, Warner Brothers has announced that Henry Cavill will don the red and blue tights for the next Superman movie. Although they were originally going to go with an unknown, it looks like producer Christopher Nolan, writer David S. Goyer and director Zach Snyder saw something they liked in Henry. Cavill is the current star of ‘The Tudors’ and was great in the very underrated STARDUST. Although you can consider me part of the population that was really hoping they’d bring back Brandon Routh, I have to admit that I like the casting of Henry Cavill. he has the look and is young enough that he’ll be around for the numerous sequels this reboot is sure to produce.
Now that the Man of Steel has been cast, let the speculation begin about who will be cast opposite him in both the villain and female leads. Nolan has made it clear he likes to go with experienced actors, so I’m sure it’s someone we know and I’m guessing it’s going to be one of the actresses that was/is in the running for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES.
