Henry Cavill is the new Superman.

Postby Chris » Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:45 pm

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Henry Cavill has won the coveted role of Superman, the iconic superhero.

The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who stated, “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. 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.”

Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film. The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.

Cavill recently wrapped production on “The Cold Light of Day” and stars in the upcoming “Immortals,” opening this fall.

Targeted for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.


He's probably most well-known from The Tudors. And he can actually act, so +1 for Zach Snyder's Superman over the last one right out of the gate.

That's a shame. Brandon Routh was fantastic.

He couldn't act for shit. He looked the part in regards to what Singer was trying to do, which was a wankfest to the Donner movies.. but it was a very dull movie overall, and I welcome a fresh take with someone who can actually act in the role.

He did very well in the role and it was an excellent movie, IMO.

I look forward to a Superman movie where Superman does something more than just stare through windows, and get beaten up by Lex Luthor's lackeys.

The only part of that movie I liked was the airplane scene.

I like Superman movies were he does epic things, like lift mountains of Kryptonite to save the world and stuff. I also liked the added emotion of them having a kid and I was really interested to see where it would go with that, but oh well.

People actually watch the Tudors? It has to be the most silly show I've ever seen (not including reality tv).

I won't watch a Zack Snyder movie again, either.
SHABBA!
