He’s hot. I approve. ;)

Great!! I’m sure he’ll do a good job.
I hope they choose a good and strong Lois Lane, because the last one (Kate Bosworth) was weak and forgettable.

This franchise is hungry for greatness! This is the time to rebuild the franchise. They better not include Lex Luthor or General Zod in any Superman movies for a while. They should utilise the villains that weren’t included in the previous films such as Bizarro, Brainiac, Doomsday, Metallo, Toyman, Darkseid, Atomic Skull, Bloodsport, Bruno Mannheim, Conduit, Cyborg Superman, Faora, Gog, Imperiex, Intergang, Jax-Ur, Kryptonite Man, Livewire, Mala, Mercy Graves, Mongul, Morgan Edge, Mr. Mxyzptlk, Parasite, Prankster, Sam Lane, Silver Banshee, Solaris, Superboy-Prime, Superman Revenge Squad, Terra-Man, Titano, Ultra-Humanite, Ultraman. This is a second chance to get it right. This is an opportunity.

They will probably cast one of the below rising young actresses as Lois Lane:

Mischa Barton, Rachel Bilson, Sophia Bush, Miley Cyrus, Kat Dennings, Hilary Duff, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, Taylor Momsen, Ellen Page, Emma Roberts, Jessica Szohr, Evan Rachel Wood

Wouldnt be my first choice as Superman but I guess they could have done much worse. Guess he’ll be eating a steady diet of power bars from now on cause he looks a bit weak in the muscle department for the role.

I am sure 15 pounds of muscle would do wonders for him so it isnt a stretch there.

I am so glad Henry got this role, hes been so unlucky with many roles and to see him get this is incredible. Hes a great actor and im glad hes finally received a platform to demonstrate it to the masses.

OMG!!! YES. YES. YES. That is what I am talking about baby. Finally. I adore Henry Cavill and have adored him for years and I am glad that he has a wonderful role to showcase his talents and his glorious backside. :)

he has lost super hero roles before! so Im happy he gets this one!
He’s hot! I hope the movie does great and that they choose a great louis lane

I was still hoping for Routh… Never mind Henry Cavill is great too!

Tom Welling was and always will be my first choice, now this movie is really gonna suk!! Cavill isn’t no Reeve nor Welling or even Cain

So now Batman, Spiderman, and Superman are all British.
