British hunk Henry Cavill has been cast in the latest reboot of Superman, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced yesterday.
Director Zack Snyder said, "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."
Cavill is best known for playing the brother-in-law of Henry VIII in the hit Showtime series The Tudors, so we can't wait to see him squeeze into another pair of tights for his latest role. The movie is expected to hit theaters in December 2012.
