Henry Cavill, Bodice Ripper From The Tudors, Named as New Superman
It's been brought to our attention that a), there's going to be a new Superman movie, and b) the guy chosen to play Clark Kent/Superman is this dude Henry Cavill from that show The Tudors, about the reign of wife-executing British king Henry VIII. (By the way, anyone else think of this Eddie Izzard bit when watching that clip?) It's kind of hard to imagine a transition from pantaloons and bodice ripping to being a bird, or a plane, no it's Superman, but weirder casting decisions have occurred.
