Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Superman has been cast!

http://www.comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=73652

And it will be Henry Cavill! And to be honest, I'm not exactly familiar with his work.


EDIT* Started a new thread titled: Superman (casting, rumors, pix till release)

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Interesting news. Cavill was attached to play the part when McG was going to direct.

^ As well as for 007, once upon a time. Good choice, even if I'm kinda sad Routh won't return.

Caviezel could play Jor-El. He's already got experience playing Henry's father.

(Not a spoiler. The book was published in 1844, damnit!)

Did this casting catch anyone else off guard? Over the weekend and no casting rumors in some time. Then like a speeding bullet Henry Cavill is Superman!

I only know him from Showtimes Tudors but thought he was excellent as King Henry VIII's trusted friend. I think he fits. Now, let's get Lois and some story details out.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

This guy has been rumored to be Superman for years, throughout various productions. People on SuperheroHype have been talking about him for ages. Good for him for finally winning the role. I have zero insight into his acting abilities. He looks the part though.

This is an incomplete rumor. It was actually a Tudors double casting. Jonathan Rhys Meyers will play Clark Kent and Henry Cavill will play Superman. Thus the secret identity thing is intact!

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

Yeah it did catch me off guard Captain Craig. It's a Sunday so there's usually very little news...I think that's why they announced it.

I'd actually heard around Friday that the True Blood guy was close to landing the role. Rumours, pfffft!

He was also rumored for James Bond for as long as he was for Supeman back when MCG was involved.

Re: Zack Snyder will direct SUPERMAN

I had a feeling he was going to get another shot at the role. Looks like I was right.

I think he's got the right look for Superman, and while he isn't as tall as Reeve or Routh, 6'1" is more than adequate. I think Cavill will do just fine in the role.
