Warner Bros. today confirmed that they have chosen their newest actor to play Superman and it’s a brit!
British actor Henry Cavill will step into the role which was last occupied by Brandon Routh. Henry has appeared in “The Tudors,” The Count of Monte Cristo” among other roles.
If you’ve been keeping count, that makes Brits playing American superheroes 3 and Americans 0, with Christian Bale playing Batman, Andrew Garfield playing Spider-Man and now Henry Cavill playing Superman.
The newest Superman movie is due out December 2012.
Are you excited to see Cavill take on the role? He’s fabulous in The Tudors so I’m willing to give it a watch.
