British actor Henry Cavill of The Tudors fame will play Superman in the Warner Bros. reboot of the Man of Steel movie. Cavill had hoped to star in the 2006 film.
Cavill, 27, will play the dual roles of black specs-wearing newspaperman Clark Kent and the Man of Steel. The film will be released on December 2012. Its formal title has not been announced yet. You might be thinking, "Who?," but hey, it's a new start for the character and the franchise.
Zack Snyder, who directed Watchmen and 300, will direct from a script written by David S. Goyer and based on a story that Goyer developed with Inception director Christopher Nolan, who will serve as a producer.
Did you like Brandon Routh in the role of Clark Kent/Superman in the 2006 film? Are you a Cavill fan?
