Superman's Been Chosen!

And he is....

Wait, who the Hell is Henry Cavill?

British actor Henry Cavill has just been cast as the role of Superman for the upcoming Zach Snyder reboot. Interestingly enough, Cavill was up for the role when Bryan Singer was casting for Superman Returns but got beaten out by a cardboard cut-out/model Brandon Routh.

I'll admit, I have no idea who Cavill is, but apparently he stars in a cable show called The Tudors. With Nolan the beind-the-scenes puppetmaster of this movie, the casting was bound to have been a wise move. Nolan, for all the arguments about his overly intricate plotlines and drawn out runtimes, is a master at picking the right talent (not the most famous) for his films. To say Snyder didn't have a major say in the casting would just be dumb of me, so I won't say this decision is purely Nolan. Although, fellow Brit Christian Bale did take the reins as Batman, so...

Anyway, what're your thoughts? Good move? Too obscure? We'll seeeeeeeEEEEEEEE!
