New Superman cast

Warner Bros. announced on Sunday Henry Cavill is the new Man of Steel and will play Clark Kent/Superman in yet another reboot of the iconic pop culture character.

Zack Snyder is on board to direct the film, set for a December 2012 release. Cavill is best known for his performance on Showtime's "The Tudors."

Before the announcement, I had never heard of Cavill, but that shouldn't discourage Superman fans, and it doesn't discourage me. Although he was criticized for his performance in "Superman Returns," I enjoyed Brandon Routh's portrayal of Superman.

Also reportedly attached to the new Superman project is Christopher Nolan and David Goyer, who helped reboot the Batman series, so that's a good thing.

As for Cavill? Hey, he looks like Superman, so that's a start. I'm willing to give this actor a chance.
