As you know, Henry Cavill, some random British guy, is the new Superman, which means the next Bond is an American (because that’s how it works, England, and we don’t want to hear any whining). What you may not know is that director Zack Snyder is apparently sorta creepy.
Cavill’s first big interview about the part, in Entertainment Weekly, hits stands soon, and, of course, it’s been leaked all over the place. The creepy thing is that Cavill and the other actors were forced to audition in a replica of Christopher Reeve’s suit.
That’s…that’s just kinda weird, dude. At least it wasn’t the actual, original suit.
Oh, fun fact: Cavill was cast in the J.J. Abrams scripted “Superman” that didn’t blow up Krypton, made Superman do kung-fu while flying, Lex Luthor is an CIA agent, made a really tasteless attempt to make Jimmy Olsen gay, and outraged the fans so much that the studio pretended it didn’t happen because McG was too scared to fly over an ocean for huge amounts of money.
So, really, Cavill dodged a bullet there, huh?
