Henry Cavill is the next Clark Kent

Not long after my previous post about Andrew Garfield, here comes another gorgeous British actor, Henry Cavill who has being announced by Warner Bros to enroll the most recognized and revered superhero character of all time,the Superman! The  announcement is made today via a joint statement with Legendary Pictures, according to the

Henry William Dalgliesh Cavil who was born on May 5 1983 in the Channel Island, Jersey, has already made a number of progressions through many films including , Laguna ( 2001 ), The Count of Monte Cristo ( 2002 ), I Captured the Castle ( 2003 ), Red Riding Hood ( 2004 ), and when on the showtime, he played a character named Charles Brandon, the 1st Duke of Suffolk in the series of The Tudors ( 2007 - 2010 ), and yes, he is about to play the most significant character of all the time, Clark Kent from the Superman in 2012!

The director Zack Synder commented upon the declaration of the new casting to be such an exciting moment when it comes to Henry, agreed with honor to play such a character. This is based on the statement of his, "In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognised and revered character of all time and I am honoured 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."

It is said that the working title would be "Man of Steel." Okay, here's my comment, first, i dont really care about who's going to play for the character, as long as he's a white (no offense),a body builder, has a great looking, AND possesses the truly heroic charismatic. Who wants to see the Clark Kent with an appearance of a street dude anyway.

Second, i dont know about you, but some many rumors said that this character, the Clark Kent, is a cursed one, or rather being called as the "Superman Curse". hold on, i'm not into drugs or something, but just look at the oldies who played the superhero for the last few decades, for example Christopher Reeve, Siegel & Shuster, The Fleischer Brothers, Kirk Alyn, and even John F. Kennedy; these guys are said to meet some misfortune events accused to have a serious relation with the superhero franchise. Do your own research to find out more. But i do hope Henry will survive the so-called Superman curse.



  1. Oh God I read about this 1 not so long ago and i was reminiscing on Superman Returns. The movie was boring! I watched it because of Kevin Spacey as Lex Luthor and Brandon Routh (mainly because of his remarkable resemblance to Reeves). But the whole curse thing started thanks to George Reeves (the actor who played Supes in the 50's TV series); his death remains a mystery.

  2. Haha,well,guess what?i didnt catch much of the franchise, just cant help thinking about how sucks it is,to be a superhero with visible underwear! XD
    yeah,Reeves died in vain. RIP
