I don’t know who this guy is either.  But apparently, Henry Cavill has always been a finalist for big roles including Twilight, Harry Potter and James Bond.  He can currently be seen in Showtime’s tv show, Tudors.

Now director Zack Snyder is giving him the big break he needs for the new Superman reboot.  The movie is coming out in December 2012.  Here’s the press release from WB

“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.”

This movie has epic written all over it with Goyer writing the script (Blade, Batman Begins) and Snyder at the helm.  I can’t wait for the action scenes.  The previous Superman was played by Brandon Routh.  I thought he did good, I blame Singer for his too laid back and somewhat creepy attitude towards his kid.
