Henry Cavill: Superman in Zack Snyder Reboot!

Henry Cavill has nabbed the role of Superman in a Zack Snyder reboot of the superhero franchise!

The 27-year-old British actor will star in the tentatively titled film Man of Steel, due out in theaters in December of 2012.

“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,” Zack said in a statement (via Variety). “I also join Warner Bros., Legendary 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.”

So excited to see Henry suit up as Superman!!

    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.
