Here’s what Cavill had to say: “In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the character most recognized and revered of all time, and I am honored to be part of his return to the big screen,” Cavill said in a press release. (Reuters) – British actor Henry Cavill, will finally be able to don cape of Superman in the new man of steel movie, its distributor said Sunday, nearly a decade after he failed to make the cut for the previous movie.
Cavill, 27, will play the dual role of mild-mannered reporter Clark Kent and his high-flying alter ego in the film, Warner Bros., which released in December 2012. His official title has not yet been announced.
Zack Snyder (“300″) will direct from a screenplay written by David S. Goyer, based on a story developed with Goyer “Inception” director Christopher Nolan, who will serve as producer.
Cavill is probably best known for his role as Charles Brandon, brother-brother of Henry VIII in the royal drama “The Tudors”. He was a prime candidate for “Superman Returns” when Joseph “McG” Nichol was attached as director. But when McG left the project in 2004 and signed Bryan Singer, Brandon Routh was then sunk.
Singer film, released in 2006, reported about 391 million at the box office worldwide, a disappointment given its report and 215 million costs. An officer of Time Warner Inc.-owned Warner Bros. later said the film “does not really work … in the way we wanted.”
Cavill, born in the Channel Islands, is the last player with ties to Colombia to play the role of an iconic American superhero. Andrew Garfield, born in Los Angeles but grew up in England, was sunk last year the lead role in a reboot of the “Spider-Man” franchise, due out in July 2012.
