Henry Cavill...

So Henry Cavill has been cast as Clark Kent/Superman for Zack Snyder's movie. A Brit! Wasn't expecting that.

I've seen him in The Count Of Monte Cristo which is a movie I quite like, other than that... I got nothing. I am mulling it over...

P.S. Proper update soon. I have neglected this place. You've missed nothing from me really, honest. What have I missed here?

I also liked the Count of Monte Cristo! I own that movie! I will pull it out and watch it again, but I admit I don't remember him. He really is an unknown actor, which is what I expected WB to do, considering their building a franchise.

Well, looking around LJ, everyone is mixed about the casting, which surprises me because I know nothing about this guy so I don't really have an opinion about him.

Compared to Routh back in 2004, Cavill has done a lot more work. Also, his name was mentioned as being in the running even back then so I am certainly aware of the actor. I will miss Routh and I feel bad for him. I know he will be graceful about it, and I wish Cavill the best of luck. I will follow the movie's progress with interest and try not to judge too harshly too soon! ;)

I was a little amazed, too. I could see him in the part, it's just that they've never cast one of you guys in the role. I had to raise an eyebrow at that, but Henry's a pretty good character actor. I've seen him in several indies and I approve, even if I feel slighted for poor Brandon.

However, you know which casting I'm nervous as hell over now. *lights cigarette*

OMFG, I missed you! *tackles*

Hey I'm British and *I*raised my eyebrow at it! (I don't want an English sounding Superman - in the words of Spacey's Lex Luthor that would be WRRRONG!) Technically though Superman is not even human never mind nationality!

I feel so sad for Brandon, possibly more than he does himself LOL! I know he loves the character and that he will be graceful and wish nothing but the best for the new guy.

Casting, script - there's loads to be nervous about! I am terrible, but it is only Superman I am this bad about. Damn you Christopher Reeve, what did you start for me to care so much about a fictional character's portrayal?! ;)

It's good to be back, I may have just read your Red K themed fic *tries to look innocent*

:( Because it is not Routh? or because you really don't like Cavill's other work? I feel bad for Routh. I'll be posting about that when I've gathered what I want to say about it properly.
