Warner Brothers announced yesterday that Henry Cavill (The Tudors) will be the next Superman. Directed by Zack Snyder, the new Superman film is produced by Christoper Nolan (Batman Begins, The Dark Knight) and is expected to hit theaters in December 2012 (“Henry Cavill Lands Superman Movie Role” — Superman Homepage).
Hard to believe in some ways, but it has been almost five years since the release of Superman Returns. By the time this new one is out, it will be nearly seven years. I have gotten over my disappointment that the Superman Returns storyline will not resume, and I am looking forward to seeing Nolan & Snyder’s take on the Man of Steel.
Do it right!
