Henry Cavill Cast as Superman in Zack Snyder Film

So congrats goes out to Mr. Cavill for getting cast.   I predict screaming fanboys and teenage girls swarming you at the next Comic Con.   One teeny tiny suggestion, if you are perhaps open to it, would be to start working out now.   I mean it, get HUGE.   My sources tell me that one of the reasons Brandon Routh tanked as Superman, despite his physical similarities and hotness, was that he just did not buff up enough.   Now, could they fake it and put you in a sculpted rubber suit?   Sure, but why not go for the real thing?   Trust me- chicks dig it....or guys, whatever...
Looking forward!

Henry Cavill, the star of Showtime's "The Tudors," has been cast as iconic superhero Superman in a film to be directed by Zack Snyder, Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures confirmed in a statement Jan. 30.
"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," Snyder said. "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."
Cavill will be seen later this year playing Greek warrior Theseus in director Tarsem Singh's action picture "Immortals," and opposite Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver in the thriller "The Cold Light of Day."
The 27-year-old actor was reportedly on the shortlist for "Superman Returns" when McG was to direct it, but when Bryan Singer took over the project he went with Brandon Routh instead.
