After a long search for the next Superman, it seems Warner Bros has finally found their man – Henry Cavill.
The reboot of the franchise is set to be entitled Man of Steel and is directed by Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen, Dawn of the Dead), and produced by Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight, Inception).
"He’s got an amazing quality. He doesn’t look too much like [Christopher] Reeve and [Brandon] Routh, but he’s big and strong and he has a very modern feel to him," Warners executive told Deadline. "We’re really going to try and make Superman as contemporary as possible."
Cavill has starred films such as Stardust, The Count of Monte Cristo, and Whatever Works; he has also had a recurring role in the television series, The Tudors.
So what do you guys think? Does he fit the Superman type? He is British, but it should be more about your acting ability than your ethnicity. Personally, I am not a big fan of Superman anyway (too unrealistic for me), but I am a fan of Snyder and will watch anything Chris Nolan is involved with.
