We've known since October that Zack Snyder will be directing the new Superman: Man of Steel. However, many of us have been waiting anxiously to find out who will don the cape and soar through the sky as the man of steel. Well, the wait has finally come to an end, as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures announced that British actor Henry Cavill ("The Tudors," The Count of Monte Cristo, not to mention one of my all time favorites) has landed the coveted superhero role as Superman. Anyone who is close to me knows, I adore this actor. I've been waiting for his breakout role for years. He's got talent and the definite devastatingly good looks and charm. It was only a matter of time. This is very exciting news! He'll also staring in The Immortals later this year, which I can't wait to see either.
Here's what director Zack Snyder had to say about their new Superman:
“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.”
