Henry Cavill Cast As Superman!
Here's a nice bit of news for a Sunday evening. WB and Zack Snyder have cast Henry Cavill as Clark Kent/Superman in their upcoming reboot. Despite word that Joe Manganiello was the front runner, Cavill was always a very strong choice among fans but he was never actually mentioned in connection with the project(as far as I know?). Anyway, word is that He was being looked at for the role for quite a while but Warner Bros chief Jeff Robinov only recently got to see his screen tests.
This one should please the fans. WB and Zack Snyder have found their new Man Of Steel..
