The new Superman

A recent trend, not necessarily appreciated by those on the other side of the pond, has been to cast British, Australian or even New Zealand actors in the lead roles in films about American heroes. And why not? After all, there have been some English kings, queens, knights and other figures portrayed with some pretty dodgy accents in the past.

Warner Brothers announced on Sunday that British actor Henry Cavill will take on the role of Superman in the series reboot by director Zack Snyder and producer Christopher Nolan. Cavill is best known as Charles Brandon in the series ‘The Tudors.’

Targeted for release in December 2012, the new Superman movie will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures.
