New Superman actor cast for Zack Snyder's Man of Steel...

Post by Sledge Hammer! on Sun Jan 30, 2011 11:24 pm

Apparently it's going to be Henry Cavill donning the red and blue (and yellow?) suit this time around. Although I say apparently as this is AICN reporting this so might want to wait for confirmation somewhere a little more, shall we say, reliable...

Anyway, as for the (alleged) casting, I've heard the name but I don't really know the guy from anything much, so I have no idea how good a piece of casting this would be or not, but apparently he is best known for his role in historical tv series The Tudors, and has also most notably appeared in Stardust, Town Creek, and Hellraiser: Hellworld. All of which I actually have copies of, but none of which I have actually gotten around to watching yet... Laughing

Oh, and here's a photoshop mockup that AICN was using, to put a face to the name:




If this is try then I'll give the guy the benefit of any doubt, as Snyder has shown a pretty good eye for casting with the majority of the roles in his films thus far. We'll see I guess.

It's official, AICN posted as if they broke the story when the truth apparently is they got the press release like everyone else, something they conveniently failed to mention at the time, instead acting as if they broke the story (despite the press release already being posted elsewhere)...

Warner Brothers Press Release:

Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Henry Cavill has won the coveted role of Superman, the iconic superhero.

The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who stated, “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. I also 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.”

Charles Roven, Emma Thomas, Christopher Nolan and Deborah Snyder are the producers of the film. The screenplay is being written by David S. Goyer based on a story by Goyer and Nolan. Thomas Tull and Lloyd Phillips are serving as executive producers.

Cavill recently wrapped production on “The Cold Light of Day” and stars in the upcoming “Immortals,” opening this fall.

Targeted for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

I don't understand why they got rid of Routh either.

I don't know this Cavill fellow, but I guess he seems fine (physically).

I liked Routh too. He was, hands down, the best thing about Singer's Superman in my opinion. So it is a shame to lose him, but I understand the film-makers wanting to make it very clear that this is a new project, and not a sequel. Binging him back would have been kind of like having George Clooney in Batman Begins.

After all, let's face it, the masses are unfortunately rather stupid when it comes to this kind of thing, as they have proven all too often. So to make the dinstancing of this film from the last one as obvious and explicit as possible is probably a smart move of the film-makers behalf. Especially as the last film doesn't have the best reputation overall, and does have some, let's say rather unique, character and plot baggage. So for everyone to know and clearly see that none of that applies to this new film is probably a smart move, as I say. Otherwise you just know you'd have people going "what happened to Superman's kid" and so on, no matter how many times they said it wasn't a sequel. And sadly without the masses on board you can't have a hit (blockbuster season) film either.

I just hope it's good. But with Nolan and Snyder involved I'm rather hopeful...

First Look: Henry Cavill as Superman in ‘Man of Steel’ - http://www.slashfilm.com/henry-cavill-superman-man-steel/
Click the link for a hi-res version.
My only gripe, and it's a minor one, is his hair .... Supes either needs a haircut or needs to slick it back more.

I wonder if they'll be going with the traditional undies on the outside suit or the DCUNew version. I couldn't tell from the hi-res photo ... plus I didn't want to get caught zooming in on a dude's junk while in the office yesterday.

Looks like they're going with the DCNu design. I still think Supes needs a haircut.

The suit looks really good without the red undies.

I wonder what the fans will think of that?

I can live without the red undies, apparently lots of other people cant.
The only thing I'm not fussed on is those darker accents on the suit, they remind me of the spriderman suit for some reason

I think this is coming together well, although I am not a SM devotee. I am happy with the director, casting, costume and also Nolan/Goyer writing.

Lets hope they will finally do a Flash, Wonderwoman and then Justic league movie!

The trailer in front of The Dark Knight Rises was ... different.

My partner who is a huge Superman fan was pretty disappointed - too "gloomy" for Superman apparently. I think it looks interesting. The cinematography is almost ... arthouse/indie like. It's not Snyder's usual style, but it's unlike anything else that I can think of. Maybe a hyrbid of 300 and District 9 or something bizarre like that?

Other than the tone, there was nothing to indicate what kind of Superman film it will be. Well, it will possibly be boring since the trailer was pretty dull, but I'm sure they'll reveal some of the good stuff in time.

Dang, you got the trailer? Why do I never get the awesome trailers? Instead get stuck with Twilight, Totcal Recall and some other crap.

^^^^

Apparently it was only included in screenings today after 2:00pm due to the worldwide embargo to align with the US release of The Dark Knight.

Low-res versions are already popping up on the internet, so I'm sure WB/DC will release a high quality version soon enough.
