That’s right, British actor Henry Cavill is going to walk in the legendary footsteps of Christopher Reeve as Clark Kent in the next Superman movie. Now, before anyone freaks out about having a Brit play THE Superman, you should know that Deadline considers Cavill to be the most macho guy to don the famous blue tights considering his role as Theseus in Immortals.

This isn’t the first time Cavill was considered to play an iconic role, it turns out that he auditioned for Batman and was in the running to play James Bond, but was considered too young to play the debonair spy. According to Tinseltown gossip, Cavill beat out actors like Armie Hammer, True Blood’s Joe Manganiello, and Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries.
