Some of you may recognize Henry Cavill from his work on Showtime’s historical drama The Tudors. As it turns out, the English actor is about to become much more famous, because he’s just been cast as Superman in the upcoming 2012 film The Man of Steel.
Rumor has it that he beat out True Blood star Joe Manganiello for the role, which is slightly disappointing since we would have killed to see the ol’ werewolf’s bulge in a pair of tights! Alas, Cavill isn’t too shabby himself, and we’re sure he’ll provide suitable masturbation fodder for many superhero fantasies. What do you think–would you hit that?
