Superman flies with Henry Cavill
Superman returns! Wait, no, that happened already. OK, maybe this would be better known as Superman Returns …More! As Hollywood waits to embrace another film about everyone’s Man of Steel, the world waited while that S-shield-fitted shirt was filled out. Would Zack Snyder’s new take on Big Blue bring back Brandon Routh? Could this be the big chance for Smallville’s Tom Welling? Turns out both of those options couldn’t leap tall buildings — at least not in a single bound. Instead, Henry Cavill, the star of Showtime’s series “The Tudors,” has been cast as iconic superhero in Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures next Superman film. Sounds good, but will he fly…?
Snyder seems to think so!
“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.” — Zack Snyder
