Henry Cavill Cast As Superman
Cavill was apparently the front runner but a decision hadn't been made up until now. Cavill just finished The Cold Light of Day and will also star in this Fall's Immortals, directed by Tarsem Sing. Cavill also starred in Showtimes The Tudors television series.
For those concerned that a British actor is playing Superman, don't forget that Christian Bale is also British. What might not be well known is according to Deadline, Cavill also auditioned to play the Dark Knight and was also a contender for James Bond (but was said to be too young at the time).
Cavill will now have to practice wearing the familiar red and blue tights with the movie being targeted for a December 2012 release.
The movie all depends on the villain. Routh was ok but the movie sucked because of storylines and how they used lex luther as the main villain.
If the next film is based on birthright, it should be cool. I like Lex Luther and all but he should only be a supporting villain for the next few films. Superman movies need a heavy hitter Braniac is a perfect choice. if portrayed correctly.
" Poor Brandon Routh, still say he was not the problem with that movie. But this guy looks like he will do a good job. "I agree. He was good IMO.
" Luthor shouldn't be the main villain, but he needs to be involved in the plot. "
I wouldn't mind mind him in a supportive role but not main villain.
