Well that’s just typical… Hours after i make a roundup post of things going on in the DC Universe, DC go and announce they’ve found their Clark Kent/Superman for their Christopher Nolan producted and Zack Snyder directed Superman reboot!
Following the current trend, like DC with Batman, and Marvel with their recent Spider-man reboot, DC have also picked an Englishman to take on the lead role. And that man is Henry Cavill. Who you say? Well, he can currently be seen on BBC2 swanning around Tudor England in The Tudors, and has popped up in a number of film and tv roles over the years, but this is by far his biggest break. It’s also not the first time Cavill has been linked to a DC comic book role, as he auditioned in front of Nolan for Batman Begins, but lost out on the part to Christian Bale.
As Cavill takes on Superman, he joins a list of the Brits recent invasion of the superhero genre, with Bale as Batman, Aaron Johnson as the lead in Kick-Ass, and Andrew Garfield as Spider-man to name but a few!
Superman: Man Of Steel is due in cinemas December 2012!
