    Henry Cavill Calls 'Superman' A "Mega Opportunity"; 'Immortals' Producer Happy For Extra Attention

    Henry Cavill is going to be facing the media gauntlet in the run-up to "Superman" and it will be unlike anything the actor has experienced before. With the production likely to be kept tightly under wraps -- with Christopher Nolan producing, the film will probably face the same levels of secrecy as his own movies -- Cavill will quickly have to learn the game of answering questions but not giving away the surprises that Zack Snyder has in store.

Times, Zack Snyder has found his Lois Lane for the upcoming "Superman" project slated for a late 2012 release, and it's Oscar nominee Adams, who will step into the iconic workaholic high heels. If the rumors are to be believed (and not all of them are), Adams beat out less-pedigreed competition in Kristen Stewart, Jessica Biel, Rachel McAdams, Malin Ackerman, Dianna Agron, Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Amanda Seyfried, Olivia Wilde, Mila Kunis, Lindsay Lohan, Natalie Portman, Anne Hathaway, Abe Vigoda, Bristol Palin, Justin B...

    Matthew Goode, Matthew Bomer, Armie Hammer, Joe Manganiello & More Were In Final Race For 'Superman'

    Colin O’Donaghue Also In The RunningYesterday, massive news broke that Henry Cavill had won the role of Superman in Zack Snyder’s new adaptation for Warner Brothers. Cavill is best known for his work as Charles Brandon on “The Tudors," but as predicted, the role went to a relative unknown, and someone who has experienced his fair share of audition hell.
