    Good choice. I think he will look even more stunning with a bit of bulk.

    British actor Andrew Garfield landed a role for "Spider Man". It come another British actor Henry Cavill to be cast as "Superman". He was the first choice before Brandon Routh. I'm glad he got it. CONGRATULATION TO ANDREW & HENRY 2 GREAT BRITISH ACTORS !!icon_biggrin.gif

    I enjoyed the last Superman actor.. but I can see Henry Cavill playing the part. I don't, however, know anything about his acting skills.

    what happened to Brandon Routh? even tho the last Superman movie was kinda boring.....i did enjoy him in that role...he looks more like Clark Kent/ Superman than this Henry Cavill...too me.

    I agree with you 100% This guy doesn't really look the part for me, granted... he is hot.

    The last movie was a bit of an ode to Christopher Reeves (Brandon Routhe is his doppleganger) I would like to see them be a bit more cutting edge, along the lines of the new Batman series. With today's special effects it should be spectacular, as long as they don't make it boring.

    This is old news guys, we need to stay current on our superhero movie casting! Ha ha. I think he'll do a good job. I'm hoping Amy Adams is a good Lois Lane. I doubt she could be worse than Kate Bosworth was.

    I think he looks bulked up enough to play Superman. I always thought of him to be build like a quarterback anyway, not a linebacker.

    Even though I liked him in the Tudors, even though Superman generally turns me on (see my superhero fetish thread), I just don't get turned on by this guy or think he's right for the part. Even Tom Welling would have been a better choice and he was specifically cast as Superboy!

    Before Superman, we'll get to see him a little buffed for "Immortals".

    Immortals is absolutely fascinating and more for me, due to having Greek ancestory.

    And why are they giving these roles to all british actors? I'd like to see Superman be an American, of Latino or mixed decent. Just saying

    That would imply that Latinos are just as good as whites and that is cray cray!

    The lack of red trunks makes the suit look odd. He at least needs a red belt with a yellow accent to break up all that blue.

    It kind of looks like some of the other earth supermen, honestly if they are going with breifless they should do the new rebooted superman.

    In the first photo he has the belt. Maybe he just doesn't have it on yet in the set photo? They don't seem to be actually shooting in the photo.

    I'd realllyyyy like to see a new modern version of all these superhero movies...in which the characters aren't portrayed so literally but rather through subtleties..like..more realistic..and super bad ass and action packed of course.
