Warner Brothers casts Henry Cavill to play Superman in new movie

Warner Brothers announced today that English actor Henry Cavill, best known as Charles Brandon on Showtime’s The Tudors, will don the primary colors of Zack Snyder’s Superman

Cavill, 27, also appeared in Matthew Vaughan’s Stardust in the role of Humphrey. Coincidentally, his Tudors season one co-star Callum Blue played Zod on TV’s Smallville.

It just so happens that I started watching The Tudors quite recently. Cavill commands a powerful presence as Henry VIII’s friend and advisor. He’s more handsome that anyone has any right to be, and exhibits just the kind of gravitas you’d want from a Superman. It’s very early, but on paper, this seems like an inspired choice. 

The project is slated to hit theaters in December 2012.
