New Superman Chosen

Henry Cavill's resume seemed to be a list of "almosts" as he was considered and passed up for several superhero roles-- to include Superman from Bryan Singer's remake. 

Well, it's now Henry's turn to assume the cape of the Man of Steel.  From Warner Bros. press release:

"Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures announced today that Henry Cavill has won the coveted role of Superman, the iconic superhero.

"The film will be directed by Zack Snyder, who stated, '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.'"

I don't know about donning the cape, but I like him just fine without anything at all.  The last image is a promo still from his upcoming flick Immortals telling the saga of Greek hero Theseus due in November 2011.
