It was, and then when there was talk Marvel movie talk Sam Jackson said he wants to play Fury and next thing he is in a cameo in IM.
Cavill is Superman fan but I don't think he expressed a desire (publically) before he was given the role. Exactly the same with Garfield and Spider-Man.
But like I said there are examples of Actors expressing a desire for a role and being handed the part but I'm struggling to think of any.
