All Signs point to Cavill


I think it sounds pretty much official that Henry Cavill has got the nod to play “Superman”. It was previously thought that Brendan Fraser had got the nod, but yesterday in an interview published at Aint it Cool, the film’s costume queen, Kim Barrett, said that the Director had chosen an unknown to star in the forthcoming blockbuster. Now, according to E Online, long-time contender, Cavill, star of films like “The Count of Monte Cristo” and “Hellraiser : Deader” might have got the gong. “This tip fell into my emailbox just before deadline: I’m told that McG, the unofficial director of Superman at Warner Bros. wants 20-year-old Henry Cavill to become his Clark Kent”, says Andy Jones, on his Movie Scoop section. Who else suspects an official announcement might be just around the corner?
