It's official. "Tudors" star Henry Cavill will don the legendary red cape to become the next Man of Steel in next year's movie, to be directed by Zack Snyder of "Watchmen" fame.
After Warner Bros. made the announcement Sunday, Snyder told Deadline, "I join Warner Bros., Legendary and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry. He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield ... In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen."
Cavill will only be the third actor to play Clark Kent and his alter ego in the official film series. Christopher Reeve, of course, played Superman in the first four movies, ending with "Superman IV: The Quest for Peace" in 1987. There's only been one sequel since, 2006's "Superman Returns" starring Brandon Routh.
