Because only hot pieces of British ass can play superheroes (see Christian Bale & Andrew Garfield), Henry Cavill, who may have made your nipples burn and your cod piece hot in The Tudors, will stuff his goods into a pair of shiny blue spandex tights to play Superman (or as my abuelita calls him, superguapo!). Zack Snyder (director of 300, Sucker Punch and Watchmen) is directing the latest redo of Superman and he had this to say about Henry:
“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. 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.”
Yeah, yeah, yeah, Zack. Save some of those fancy words for when you announce you’re going to direct a live-action IMAX 3D spectacular version of She-Ra starring Shauna Sand. But YAY and all that for Henry. Hopefully, his career turns out better than the last dude who played Superman in a movie. Shit will work out for Henry as long as he doesn’t make the same mistake Brandon Routh made which is to play a fully clothed Superman. Seriously, it’s 2011 and we’re due for a nekkid ass nekkid Superman! It’s a bird! It’s a peen!
