    Arrow The new Superman






    Metropolis, you have your new Superman.

    Warners Bros. and Legendary Pictures announced today that Henry Cavill has been cast as the man of steel in the new Superman movie.
    Cavill, 27, is best known for his role as of Charles Brandon on the Showtime series The Tudors. His latest film—aptly titled for the budding superhero—is Immortals, slated for release this fall.

    Zack Snyder, who will be directing the Super reboot, says in a statement: "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."

    Also rumored to be on the consideration list for the role of Clark Kent was Mad Men's Jon Hamm and True Blood's Joe Manganiello. Superman: Man of Steel is slated for release in December 2012.

    He's English, this is like having an American 007....SuperMan is an All American Icon....might as well have a Mexican Captain America
    Coarse edged youth, the irish pendants string from their smiles
    not yet plucked as to slacken the seams
    and drag down the features of age,
    no folds or creases from unkempt wear
    eyes of tranquilty, crystalline-beads
    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts
    but oh they have yet to be experienced and that makes aging so very worth it...ML circa2012

    You do know that the new Spider Man is British as well. One of the guys in that Social Network movie...

    I hate to say it but the current crop of American actors cannot handle it.

    I remember people saying that Hugh Jackman wouldn't make a good Wolverine. He's an Aussie btw.

    In all fairness that was an American produced movie, and a lot of people would have never even know who William Wallace was if it were not for that movie.

    I mean I really don't care either way because I think the idea of another Superman movie just sounds lame anyway as I will always love the old school ones with Christopher Reeves.

    It's ridiculous he's a scrawny little twerp. I used to read Superman comics as a kid, and He was always muscular and jacked. WTF is this world coming to?

    This Week's Cover: The new 'Superman' speaks! An exclusive interview with Henry Cavill. PLUS: Previewing Hollywood's new crop of superhero franchises | PopWatch | EW.com

    For fans of superhero movies, the next two years could bring the biggest and broadest array of films the genre has ever produced — and hopefully the very best, as well. Call it The Spandex Singularity — an unprecedented concentration of super-star superhero properties, resulting from the intensifying geek takeover of pop culture. This year gives Fox’s X-Men: First Class, a reboot (in prequel form) of the franchise that helped launch the modern era of superhero cinema back in 2000. Then come three new properties that will try to expand the category’s horizons: Thor and Captain America: The First Avenger, both from Marvel Studios and Paramount Pictures, and Warner Bros.’ Green Lantern starring Ryan Reynolds. Next year: The heavyweights. The Wolverine. The Amazing Spider-Man. The Avengers. The Dark Knight Rises. And then, capping the year, an as-yet-untitled movie that will try to restore the king of all the superheroes to his pop glory: Superman.

    The new issue of Entertainment Weekly previews the onslaught of box office super-friends about to descend upon us — and it also brings you the first interview with British actor Henry Cavill (The Tudors) since director Zack Snyder (300, Watchmen) and producer Christopher Nolan (The Dark Knight) tapped him to become Hollywood’s newest Man of Steel. Among the topics of discussion: Cavill’s audition, which included shooting a screen test wearing a replica of Christopher Reeve’s once impressive, now dated Superman suit. “If you can put on that suit and pull it off,” says Snyder, ‘that’s an awesome achievement.” Cavill was feeling less than super in the moment, at least about his ability to fill out the costume: He had just finished shooting a film with Bruce Willis called The Cold Light Of Day, and the part required to him to shed the impressive abs of steel and muscle tone he had put on for the movie he made right before that, the forthcoming mythic fantasy Immortals. As an assistant helped to him put on the Super-suit, Cavill recalls: “All I could think was: Oh, god. They’re going to look at me and go ‘He’s not Superman. Not a chance.’ The actor inside me was going: You’re not ready! You’re not ready!” Snyder saw something — or rather someone — different. “He walked out, and no one laughed,” says the director. “Other actors put that suit on, and it’s a joke, even if they’re great actors. Henry put it on, and he exuded this kind of crazy-calm confidence that just made me go ‘Wow.’ Okay: This was Superman.’”

    Superman reboot, eh? They are also rebooting Spiderman, and The Punisher, and they already rebooted The Hulk, and I'm sure there are more I am not thinking of. Getting tiresome.

    I hope someone goes and posts pictures. Henry Cavill should be in his bulking phase...

    Relativity has announced that the film Immortals will be represented at Wondercon in San Francisco from April 1-3 with appearances by Henry Cavill, Luke Evans, Kellan Lutz, Isabel Lucas, director Tarsem Singh and producers Gianni Nunnari and Mark Canton.

    OFFICIAL SUMMARY:

    Visionary director Tarsem Singh (The Cell, The Fall) and producers Gianni Nunnari (300), Mark Canton (300) and Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) unleash an epic tale of treachery, vengeance and destiny in Immortals, a stylish and spectacular 3-D adventure. As a power-mad king razes ancient Greece in search of a legendary weapon, a heroic young villager rises up against him in a thrilling quest as timeless as it is powerful.

    The brutal and bloodthirsty King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke) and his murderous Heraklion army are rampaging across Greece in search of the long lost Bow of Epirus. With the invincible Bow, the king will be able to overthrow the Gods of Olympus and become the undisputed master of his world. With ruthless efficiency, Hyperion and his legions destroy everything in their wake, and it seems nothing will stop the evil king’s mission.

    Can't handle what, precisely?

    Spider-man? Toby McGuire was a the perfect Peter Parker / Spider-man.

    The current crop of American actors can't handle Acting. If they could then someone american would be playing Thor, Wolverine, Professor X, Magneto, (old and young for those). We have an American playing Captain America but some whine that he is not big enough.

    I agree Toby Maguire was perfect for it. He is an exception: he dropped out of high school to pursue acting. The guys coming from outside the U.S. are going to acting academies to have formal training in it (see Andrew Garfield,Andrew Garfield - IMDb the current Spider-Man)

    It is spelled Maguire, btw. Tobey Maguire - IMDb

    My gf and I noticed a trend with these new pretty boy super heroes....THEY ALL LOOK LIKE THOSE 2 DUDE FROM TWILIGHT IN SOME WAY....Honestly look at them similar eyebrow and cheekbone structure, same hair, same scrawny builds.... Hollywood is trying to Boy Band the movies, they want their movies to have girls pissing on themselves and drying humping posters of the stars....

    no sign of despair in their hair, nor their hearts

    I'm disagree with this. The US has the largest pool of talented actors.

    The reason for the current influx of foreigners is the desire for new faces, requests put out by foreign directors, and the current success of British movies.

    Like I said before, this happens about every 10 years or so in film and music. The industry, and audiences will get bored of them and they'll fade to the background, and then it'll happen again in 10 years or so.

    As if that tween porn wasn't bad enough in and of itself, we get this fallout as well.

    Just fucking yay...

    The new Lois Lane guest appeared in the first season of Smallville.


    We got our Superman , and now we have our Lois Lane.

    Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Amy Adams has been cast as Lois Lane, the reporter who steals the heart of Clark Kent in the Zack Snyder reboot of the Superman movie...

    Snyder says in a statement: "Second only to Superman himself, the question of who will play Lois Lane is arguably what fans have been most curious about. So we are excited to announce the casting of Amy Adams, one of the most versatile and respected actresses in films today. Amy has the talent to capture all of the qualities we love about Lois: smart, tough, funny, warm, ambitious and, of course, beautiful."

    Adams will play opposite Henry Cavill, 27 , who was cast as Clark Kent back in January. Kevin Costner and Diane Lane have been cast to play Mr. and Mrs. Kent, the adoptive parents of Superman. Adams, 36, is coming off an Academy Award nomination for her work in The Fighter alongside Mark Wahlberg and Christian Bale.
