Who Is Henry Cavill? | What Can We Expect From Superman?
What Can We Expect From Superman?

Fun fact: as far as we can tell, Cavill is the first actor ever to play Superman without first being born and bred in America and probably raised on Mom’s apple pie to boot. We’re not sure if casting a Brit as the defender of truth, justice and the American way is on a par with the idea of casting an American as Bond, but we’re going to start a rumour right now that Ashton Kutcher is going to be the next 007 in a cultural exchange programme.

In any case, not much is known about director Zack Snyder’s plans for the Big Blue Boy Scout just yet, but Cavill's casting does show that those rumours about an older Superman are out (remember the Jon Hamm rumblings?). And it also sounds like Snyder might be planning to shoot in 3D. When we talked to him recently about Sucker Punch, he touched on the possibility. "We’ve been talking about, you know, is it possible that Superman would be in 3D? I was saying, 'Well, you know we’ve learned a lot from Guardians'. The one nice thing for me if we did do that would be that I got to cut my teeth on a two year project where it was shot specifically in 3D - and we were going for realism there, we didn't want it to look cartoony. My school of 3D was pretty intense, pretty all-encompassing. It’s not like I’d be going I to make a movie and going like, 'I don’t get this’."

And yes, that in turn implies that those rumours you’ve heard about a CG-Superman might well be true. Watch this space for more as we get it – and keep your eyes peeled for further casting announcements soon as Snyder ties up the loose ends on his next film, Sucker Punch, and sets sail for Supes.
