Henry Cavill Is The New Superman

Honestly, another British guy?

British actor Henry Cavill, who is largely unknown to those who aren’t fans of the Showtime drama “The Tudors,” has landed the part of perhaps America’s most iconic character: Superman.

Cavill will play the red-and-blue-clad superhero, as well as his alter ego Clark Kent, in Zack Snyder-directed reboot of the franchise set for release in December, 2012, Warner Bros. announced today.
