    I was really hoping that Duncan Jones would get the nod even though it would have delayed "Mute" which I'm really looking forward to seeing. I think he would have been able to make an amazingly good Superman movie. I am inclined to believe that it was indeed "Mute" that made Duncan pass on this opportunity but I've not read anything to really make that comment, it's just speculation. I know that another concern is Zack's use of CGI and green screen. I will admit that this is something that has me concerned about this project but not to the extent others are.

    It's impossible to make such a movie now without heavy reliance on green/bluescreen and CG.

    That's awesome that the production is coming here if it is confirmed that is.

    You should try and be an extra, maybe even damsel in distress!

    I almost thought Jim Caviezel was cast

    Wherever you go, there you are.
    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.
     
  14. 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! :)

    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.

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

    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.
