Henry Cavill Will Be The New Superman!!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm FlickersChristian Bale



The Tudors star Henry Cavill has landed the coveted Superman role in the upcoming Warner Bros. reboot.

"He's got an amazing quality. He doesn't look too much like Reeve and Routh but he's big and strong and he has a very modern feel to him," says a Warner Bros. exec. "We're really going to try and make Superman as contemporary as possible."

The British actor also went up for Batman in 2005, but lost to Christian Bale.

Speaking of which, we NEED to see these two battle it out on screen together!!

What do U think of the new Superman??

    Why is Brandon Routh not reprising the role? He was awesome in the that not so awesome Superman movie, I hope they don't blame him for a crappy script no direction and bad supporting characters…. This guy looks dull.

    Please let me be Lois Lane!

  10. 10

    Yes! Yes!!! YES!!!!!!!! It's about time he gets his break. He was so close to being Batman, then James Bond, then Superman in the other film that it seemed like he was meant to be 2nd choice. I am soo happy for this!! Congrats, Henry!!!!!

  11. 11

    Is it just me, or does he resemble Levi Johnston?

  12. 12

    Yass he is excellent I Just hope he avoids the Cruse

  13. 13

    Great choice but I wish it was Matt Bomer…

  14. 14

    I think you mean Brandon Routh, not Christian Bale.

  15. 15

    Honestly I loved this man on The Tudors. He is hot, hot, hot.

  16. 16

    oh ignore my comment, I thought it said he went up for superman, not batman. Very annoyed Brandon Routh isn't coming back - just because the writing and directing of Superman Returns was utter shit.

  17. 17

    Am I the only one that thinks this guy (at least in this picture) looks like Levi Johnston?

  18. 18

    ROUTH did a GREAT job as Superman. Why mess with success??? besides, Superman doesn't have a British ACCENT.

  19. 19

    like him but i think he is too goodlooking for that role.

  20. 20

    Re: sushilover – ha ha ha ha yes you are so right…. that's what come in my mind the first time i saw the pix.

  21. 21

    Luv Henry Cavill ! ….But another SuperMan film =(

  22. 22

    Henry is HOT and did an awesome job in The Tudors. Good choice.

  23. 23

    Sexy sexy sexy loved him in the Tudors and I will love him as Superman yae!!!

  24. 24

    LOVE him… What a great choice!!! One of the best looking men in Hollywood:)

  25. 25

    No doubt about it, this guy is hot. BUT I really wanted Joe Manganiello. He is beyond HAWT! :(

  26. 26

    Great- now they turned superman into a skinny midget. Its like hollywood is deliberately trying to shit on superheros. first the raping of the spiderman franchise, now superman.

    Everything is turning more gay and femme. Cant we have any GUY movies without the far left fucking with them?

  27. auds says – reply to this


    HELL YA!! Perez, you didn't mention that Henry went out for the original part of Superman Returns and (thankfully) didn't get it… not to mention how he was turned down for James Bond, WHAT A SHAME! He could have done 1000x's better than Daniel Craig blah! I would watch ANYTHING with this screen God in it!!

  28. 28

    Ugh!!! Tom Welling should have been Superman!!!!! I love Henry, and if i had to have a second choice he would be it, but really?!?! Tom is and will always be this generations Superman

  29. 29

    Fantastic news. Went to school with the guy, couldn't happen to a nicer chap. He totally deserves it. He's hot stuff!

  30. 30

    Yes love it hes so hot.

  31. 31

    He is so damn sexy.

  32. 32

    How tall is he?
    couz he could be cute but superman is tall, brandon and tom are 6´plus
    and i don´t know i hope they do better with Lois.
    (please make a good choice)

  33. 33

    yeah hes super freakin hot like fire, but I don't see him as superman… he isn't even that tall! I guess I'll always think of Tom Welling as the prefect superman.

  34. 34

    FUCK YEAH!!!! He's definitely going to bring some class to the part :D !!! heh heh heh heh

  35. 35

    LOVE HIM!!!!! SSSSoooooo Sexy!!!! I will actually watch this one….He won my heart in The Tudors — I just hope he does not disappoint.

  36. 36

    Superman is an American Icon. So the actor should be " American". How many British superhero's are there anyway?

  37. 37

    He will be wonderful !!

  38. 38

    He was great in the tudors ! Cant wait to see him as superman

  39. 39

    Re: sushilover – Dude, why'd you have to say that?! I thought he was SOOO hot until you pointed that out *twitches*.

  40. 40

    Re: MVPnis – Well you clearly don't know much about Henry Cavill, considering he is 6"1'.

    I think he is a fantastic actor. Brought Charles Brandon to life in 'The Tudors', should be good as Superman.

    Finally an actor for the role with not only smoldering good looks, but sexy. There've been a lot of good looking actors playing the part in the past, but never any with a McSteamy vibe like this.

  42. 42

    I absolutely LOVE Henry Cavill….yummy indeed!

    Re: MVPnis – um…are you on crack?
    do you even know who Henry Cavill IS!?!
    if you knew who he was, and the roles he's played
    you would know he is sufficiently tall and muscular for this role

    way to speak out of your ass.
