Meet Henry Cavill: The New Superman [Pic]

Submitted by: SaintPatty 6 years ago in Entertainment

You may have seen him in The Tudors--now he"ll star in Superman, directed by 300 and Watchmen"s Zack Snyder. Good? Bad?

I made an account after years of lurking just to say:
You guys do know that this picture is old right? He looks young and boyish, only because it`s a couple of years old.
Here`s what this hunk of a man looks like now.

They`ll put him to work and make him muscular for his body type, but he`s slight of frame either way. I don`t approve.

The only thing "super" about him is the exuberant amount of pubic hair busting out the top of his pants. (Does that make me gay for noticing?)


No, that just makes you "curious".

@angel:

That was not a reboot. That was basically Superman 5.

This will be a new origin story, starting at his birth.

Guys, guys guys.....

If you have seen the Tudors, then you will know this guy will make a good Superman.

His acting chops are impeccable. Superman is not a brainless bruiser. Brandon Routh was an okay Superman, but they ruined him by putting him in the wrong time frame of the Supes universe.

This is going to be a reboot/origin story. they needed a younger looking guy, and I can think of nobody better.

Ummmmmm worst picture of Henry Cavill EVER. Tsk tsk, never send a man to do a Lady/Gerry job. So old and outdated!!

Here he is shooting Immortals- Due for release November 2011



Now give the guy a break- if Seth Rogen can beef it up for Green Hornet, I`m pretty sure THIS guy can fill out some spandex tights. Reowr >=]

I`m all for superhero movies, but we just had a new Superman. Let`s get some more X-Men Origins or something. I`d actually like a sequel (not superhero) to the last Star Trek.

"I like Jon Hamm (from Mad Men) as Superman"

jon hamm is the man, but i think he`s too much man to be superman.

what happened to brandon routh? i thought he was a good superman.

Hollywood running out of ideas? Hell no. Rebooting an old series is a "new" idea, same with doing a remake of a classic. See they have plenty of new material..... What am I saying. God Hollywood sucks so much balls these days.

Wow, there are so many other guys in Hollywood that are far more built than he is and they chose him? I`ve seen guys who play geeks who had more muscle (think Michael Shanks as Daniel Jackson on Stargate). Plus, he`s way too young looking. Superman is supposed to look mature.

So basically, based on this thread, this version of Superman appeals mainly to randy 18-29 year old females. Or maybe its just this pic.
Either way, unless this is set not long after Smallville, Superman imo should look like he`s in his mid 30s. If they did a Superboy movie I could see this guy

this is bad, if you look at the superman comics he is a well built very strong looking man. this guy would be closer to playing somebody like spiderman or robin.

who cares, another superhero-gone-movie interchangeable boy/man "attractive" movie star... what ever happened to GOOD actors that actually play good roles? what happened to the unique attractiveness that used to be so prevalent in movies? all the stars of these factory produced prefabricated super hero movies are the same... lame.

Never actually seen this guy act, so I can`t vouch for that. However, he does have a decent "Superman" chin if that counts for anything.
Eh..either way its hard to tell. However, with Christopher Nolan as producer I`ll put a little faith in the casting direction.
Not sure who you would get to play Lois Lane or Lex Luthor though.
