I heard that someone was chosen to play Superman in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel movie, and I was told he was an unknown, but being a fan of the Showtime original show The Tudors, I know who Henry Cavill is.
I think it is a pretty good choice, and kind of like how Christian Bale is not an American, but he’s playing the part of one very well, I have a feeling Henry Cavill will do just fine. He has an accent, that people will probably question whether he has one or not, kind of like how Christian Bale does it.
OK, I like the direction they are going in. They are keeping it young, no problem there. I mean, who thought Katy Holmes was going to be good in Batman Begins, and I did like Maggie Gyllenhaal replacing her in the Dark Knight. So, I can see them keeping this cast pretty young. I just hope they pick someone good for the role of Lois Lane!
