Henry Cavill is Superman….Wait, Who?

I bet you didn’t expect to wake up and hear this today but yes it is true, at last we have a Superman for Zack Snyder’s reboot. Someone I have never heard of, someone that wasn’t even rumored to be considered for the role, Henry Cavill. The British actor is probably best known for his role in The Tudors as Charles Brandon.

In the press release sent by Warner Bros. today, Zack Snyder had a few words.

“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.”

Believe it or not, this is not the first time Cavill has been attached to play the Man of Steel.  Back in 2005, Cavill was originally attached to play Superman in the doomed Superman: Flyby. Funny how that worked out, huh?

So what do you think of the new Superman?
