Henry Cavill Cast as Superman

And the world responds, “Who?”

The trend of casting unknowns as the Man of Steel continues.  Henry Cavill,  (“The Tudors”, Stardust) has won the iconic role of Superman/Clark Kent in the upcoming Zack Snyder-directed film.  

It is an odd casting choice, mainly because Cavill is British. (Didn’t see that one coming at all) It also denounces earlier reports that the filmmakers were looking to cast an older Superman, keeping him in the 30s-40s range.  Cavill is 27.  I wonder what other surprises are in store as this film begins to come together.

At the moment, Cavill is the only actor who has been cast for the film.  News regarding the new Lois Lane might not be far behind.

The new Superman film is directed by Zack Snyder (Watchmen) and slated to be released in December of 2012.
