When I was a kid, the only superhero that I know is Superman, and when you say Superman the only guy that comes in my mind is none other than the late Christopher Reeve since he's the actor who portray Clark Kent whom I grew up with. Over the years, Superman/Clark Kent has been portrayed by many actors including (but not limited to) Bud Collyer, Kirk Allen, George Reeves, Christopher Reeve, Dean Cain, Tom Welling, Brandon Routh and the new Superman Henry Cavill.
This Superman movie this year is a much awaited one. Since it receives a lot of positive and overwhelming feedbacks, it makes me get excited on what to expect on this film. Plus, I was surprise to learn that the new Superman is Henry Cavil. Honestly, I didn't expect it would be him on that version. I remember him portraying as Charles Brandon, first Duke of Suffolk in The Tudors, as one of King Henry VIII's member of his court.
And yes, to those who have also watched The Count of Monte Cristo, he portrayed the character of Albert Mondego, and of course who could have forget Theseus, the founder King of Athens in the movie The Immortals? Hmmm...was also kinda surprise about the rise of this lad. We were used to see him portray supporting roles, and now he's the superhero every kid could ever know. I'm so excited to see him as the geeky and cute Clark Kent of Smallville who happened to forced to confront his secret extraterrestrial heritage when Earth is invaded by members of his race.Plus Russel Crowe as Jor-El,a scientist and member of the council of the planet Krypton and believed to be Kal-El's father from their planet.
