Whoa there, Superman! Ever heard of knocking?


Yes, it’s our very own Man of Steel, Henry Cavill, making quite the entrance as Superman in director Zack Snyder’s upcoming reboot.

The Jersey-born actor (that’s Jersey as in the Channel Islands, not Jersey as in Jersey Shore) plays Clark Kent and his alter ego, alongside Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Kevin Costner and Diane Lane as Jonathan and Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Daily Planet editor Perry White and Michael Shannon as General Zod.

Meanwhile, Russell Crowe is rumoured to be in line for the role of Superman’s birth dad, Jor-El, played in the original film version by Marlon Brando.

Man of Steel is still a couple of years away from release yet, so watch this space for further news and pics.
