Henry Cavill cast as Superman, the Man of Steel

superman-man-of-steel-henry-cavill

The Man of Steel will soon be played by a Brit. Henry Cavill, best known for starring as Charles Brandon in Showtime’s The Tudors, will be the next Superman (and Clark Kent). Directed by Zack Snyder, the upcoming Superman flick is being produced by Christopher Nolan and written by Jonah Nolan and David Goyer, a trio best known for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight.

“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen,” said Snyder yesterday. “I also join Warner Bros. and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry. He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield.”

Cavill joins the ranks of legendary supermen like George Reeves and Christopher Reeve. Aside from starring in The Tudors, Cavill’s most recent works include Whatever Works and Stardust. Much like Christopher Reeve and Brandon Routh (Superman Returns) he is a lesser known actor.

Zack Snyder has directed a number of popular films in the last decade including 300, Dawn of the Dead, Watchmen, Legend of the Guardians, and has a new film Sucker Punch, on the horizon.

Superman: The Man of Steel is currently slated for a 2012 release. No details about the story are known at this time.
