    In recent news, Zack Snyder and Warner Bros. announced that Henry Cavill is set to star as the new man of steel in the upcoming superman reboot of 2012.  Sorry, Tom Welling and Brandon Routh fans that were always clamoring over which one of them deserved to take on the role in the upcoming reboot.  However, i can't say i'm really surprised, as I didn't expect either of them to get cast anyway.  Although, I kind of wanted to see Guy Pearce take on the role, but I think Henry Cavill will do just as well.  Besides, with Nolan and Snyder working together on this project, I doubt fans will be disappointed with this new interpretation of Superman.  What are your thoughts on this?

    hmmm, seeing as how he's missed out on a few sure things before....I wouldn't cross my fingers.  But, really, a British Superman??  lol

      Well Nolan did cast a Welsh Batman, and that worked out nicely, so what's the worst that can happen?  Don't answer that.  wink  lol  Seriously though, I think it'll work out fine.  I know Christopher Nolan has never let me down before as a director, and although he's only producing this film, I'm sure he's not going to let me down now with this casting.

    guy pierce as superman wtf?????? he could work as the ridler or bizoro. Cavill should do alright as long as he can hide the accent unlike some people.

      Hey Grimlock, hows it going?  Who do you think should be the villain for this movie?  I don't know about you, but I'm hoping they'll finally do Brainiac in the next movie, or set it up to where Darkside is set to play a pivotal role in a planned trilogy.  What do you think?

        guy pierce as brainiac and vin disal as darkside. ddl as lex would be crazy, he would make him way more sadistic.

          I don't know about Vin Diesel playing Dark Side, but I like the idea of Guy Pierce as Brainiac now that you metion it. Plus, your right.  DDL as Lex would be sick.

    I had not really cared who the new superman was going to be, seeing as how he was never my favorite superhero.
    But knowing Cavill will be in it, I might actually care now. He did really great in The Tudors. I think he can pull this off!

      Yeah, I'm just glad to hear DC/WB is finally casting an actor that has acting experience for once to play superman, as Christopher Reeves was barely fresh out of film school when he got signed to be superman in the original movies. Plus, Welling was a model before being cast in smallville, and Routh had a little bit of experience in soaps, but not too much.  therefore, im just glad they got someone with some experience for once. 

      Now I just hope that rumor is true about Daniel Day Lewis being considered for Lex Luthor, as I think he'd be awesome in that role. big_smile

    He definitely has the right look. I knew Tom Welling wouldn't be Superman again. He's been Clark Kent for far too long. I'm sure he's more than ready to do something else (probably a more behind the scenes part actually.) I can support this choice for Superman. I think it will be good.

      Me too.  Now we just need to find out who's playing lois lane and the rest of the cast, then we're all set. smile

      jessica biel as lois lane?  wow, that's a good thing then.  to be honest, i never really found margot kidder to be that attractive during the earlier superman movies, so it'll be good to see jessica biel get the role.  big_smile

        yes, Jessica would be quite of a refresh after Margot Kidder cool

        but I`m not so sure she`s the right one for the role..but if Nolan trusts her, then I do too big_smile

          Well to be honest, she wouldn't be my first choice to play lois lane, but i would still accept her if she did is all i was getting at.  personally, if anne hathaway was still available, then I would've picked her as my first choice.  it's sad she's no longer available for the role though.

            Maybe because Anne Hathaway is busy filming Catwoman with Nolan big_smile

              Oh i know she is, that's why i said it's sad she's no longer available for the role. however, i guess we'll have to wait and see. personally, im really hoping the rumors are true about daniel day lewis up for being lex luthor, as he would literally own that role if you ask me. big_smile

    If this Superman is going to be like the one with Brandon Routh they might as well give up now. roll

      Nah, I doubt that would happen.  With Zack's ability to create great action sequences, and Nolan's ability to tell deep character and story driven films, then i doubt this will end up like Superman Returns. big_smile
