Henry Cavill cast as Superman
TakeD0WN420
Everyone cares about the three brits playing American characters (Superman, Batman, Spider-Man). So what? Robert Downey Jr. does a fantastic Sherlock Holmes and no one cares. It's called acting for a reason.
In the end, the world didn't need a Superman. Just a Brave one.

Not everyone. The more rational of us don't give a toss and likely realize that the character was created by two Jewish immigrants, one from Canada, and some of the best contemporary Superman stories were written by non-Americans.
Easy, miss. I've got you.

[He certainly will look the part but then again so did Brandon Routh, will he have the charisma to share the screen with Christian Bale and other actors if there is a Superman/Batman movie or a Justice League spin off in the future? If Green Lantern is a success Ryan Reynolds has enough comic timing and screen prescence to steal the show if there isnt a strong enough Superman actor to play the "leader" of the justice league. When I heard the rumours about Jon Hamm being the next man of steel I thought that was perfect casting but I havent seen enough of Cavill (other than the Count of Monte Christo) to show much confidence in the choice to go with him.

yea Jon Hamm has the look but he is 39 so maybe too old for what snyder is thinking for the film.
But yea,def for a film featuring an older superman Hamm would look the part.
Hopefully cavill will pull it off.

I saw this post a few weeks ago but I didn't see reason to comment. Now that my day's almost over and I'm bored with free time, I guess I'll share my opinion. The casting for Clark is pretty good. The photo in that link is pretty poor though. I'm not sure if there's been posts in the thread of Photoshopped suits onto Henry because I haven't read all of it but here are a few I found...

I did a bit of lurking around here before posting, but it looks like you guys need a bit more info on this Smile.

American accent clip: http://www.wideo....fvMKh.html (the scene is from Blood Creek, it's mostly action but you can hear him speak in a pretty good American accent towards the end).

Clark Kent look: [img]http://www.comicbookmovie.com/images/users/uploads/21057/Cavill%20Glasses.jpg[/img] is not a valid Image.

Enjoy!

Nice photos. I like the one with the glasses and the Superman suit looks good too. Smile

hey Tom has grown into the part . and if he was that bad this show would not have lasted past 8th season.

It's going to be interesting to see how Henry will play clark.

Yes, it sure is. I'm really looking forward to seeing Cavill portraying Superman on the big screen. Smile

Please let that second picture be canon. It's so awesome.
You know, the reason I like Superman is because he is an unabashed good guy, not this angsting dude with an anguished past who kills people while angsting.

It's time to show people why Light and Bright Heroes are awesome again.

I still think Brandon Routh should have gotten the part.
 
Fulcon
I sometimes wonder what the reaction would be if Brandon got the part again. I think he is Superman, personally. Not that I'm not open to Mr. Cavill, of course.

Even then, we'd have to wait for the film to come out and judge the two actors performances against each others just to see what it would've been like.

I totally agree, I would even go as far as to say Routh struck me as effeminate. Singer himself is a pretty soft fella, So maybe the director was just rubbing off.

On that note, if there happens to be a scene where Clark is topless - (I think i speak on behalf of all Superman fan ladies) I wouldn't mind seeing a bit of chest hair!

In all seriousness, he looks good.
