Henry Cavill To Play Man Of Steel In Next Superman Film

henry-cavill-supermanWell folks Warner Bros went way off the grid on this one. Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures have announced that they have cast Henry Cavill as the next man to wear the iconic “S” on his chest. The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, while Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder will be the producers of the film. The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Cavill is relatively unknown at this point, but once this movie drops I don’t think he will be for much longer. The last Superman flick was good, but not great and we will see if the move to cast relative unknowns into the role continues or whether depending on how this film does they bring in a new, more established star to take up the role.

Cavill recently wrapped production on “The Cold Light of Day” and stars in the upcoming “Immortals,” opening this fall. The next Superman movie is targeted for release in December 2012.
