Thoughts, feelings, strong allergic reactions to the idea of Henry Cavill being cast in (yet another) reboot of the Superman movie series?
While I personally find Mr. Cavill lovely to look at (read The Tudors), there are a couple of reasons I am a bit skeptical:
- He has the Superman look – but can he pull off the Clarke Kent?
- The accent – there is clearly the prospect of us having a dodgy/wobbly American accent going on.
That said, I liked Superman Returns. I thought that Brandon Routh did a servicable job as the Man of Steel. It would have been interesting to see where they picked up the story in a subsequent movie. On the other hand, it could be argued that the movie was pretty self-contained and did not necessitate additional storytelling.
Honestly I have not read too much about this reboot but it would be nice if you could share your info, thoughts, etc. concerning this bit of casting and where you think the story is going.
