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.
