I adore her as well and hope that she continues to keep her head on straight and chooses good roles.

I'm hoping Cavill has the acting chops (I thought he was just fine in the roles I've seen him in) to back up that charming personality. I have pretty high hopes for his performance in MOS after that last trailer. Not impossibly high hopes or anything.

Who were the other 499 guys?

Who knows, all I know is that I thank all the gods everyday for the fact that Zach didn't choose Joe Manganiello.

I still shudder at the thought.

Manganiello was never a good choice for Supes. He's just too animal.

Oh yeah I remember Manganiello. I think that he was tied up with his TV schedule, so couldn't make it to the audition. He would have made a fine Superman physically, but he would have gave off wrong vibe. Can you imagine him with Lois in that scene in the third trailer?

I can barely stand him on true blood and he seems like such an arrogant guy IRL, I started disliking him when he started posting so many tweets about how amazing he was, then I hated his acting on the show, he just growls and shouts ll his lines shirtless and has the charm of a piece of wood. I remember that when he was on the run I used to think OH GOD PLEASE, I HOPE TODAY IS NOT THE DAY THEY MAKE THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF HIS CASTING AS SUPERMAN

Luckily it never happened

I did a little digging, going through tons of old bookmarks and came up with this gem:

Is It A Bird? Is It A Plane? No, It's The Playlist's Picks For The Cast Of Zack Snyder's 'Superman'!

http://theplaylist.blogspot.co.uk/20...playlists.html

They listed possible Superman:
Matthew Bomer
Henry Cavill
Matthew Goode
James Wolk
Anderson Davis/Anyone Off The Street/An Unknown
Because We Know You're Going To Ask: Brandon Routh
Honorable Mentions: Scott Porter

It was posted in 2010. So they were correct in Cavill and Goode aspect. They were however wrong about Lois,Perry and Jimmy casting.

I like how Henry's presence as a nice guy is what edged him out. "But in the end, I think Henry just has this innocence too [in addition to the look and physicality required for the role]." Believe it or not, the CASTING of Cavill has Zack Snyder written all over it. Bale had already made a splash with Machinist and American Psycho. All Cavill had as a lead was Immortals. I think Snyder cares less about bank-ability than Nolan. And yes, I feel the A-list casting is more Nolanish, so there.

Look what I found:

Henry Cavill: The Most Overlooked Man In Hollywood, Still Just Half A Step From Stardom:
http://theplaylist.blogspot.co.uk/20...ed-man-in.html

That was posted in 2009.The Playlist blog seems to be on the money.

Cavill was overlooked for Green Lantern, Batman Begins, was upagainst Craig for the James Bond, and Twilight (lol).

He was attached to McG's Superman before Singer took helm, he went as far as trying out costume made in Stan Wilson effect studio.

Well, I'd like to think that was the universe's way of aligning the starts so that we could have this now

Other actors who were reportedly in the early mix included Michael Fassbender, Jared Leto and the seriously luckless Henry Cavill.
I had to lol at Jared Leto.

HENRY CAVILL IS SUPERMAN! And I couldn't be more happier as a Supes fan!

Losing one role can lead to a better one. I bet every well known actor who lost out on the Green Lantern role are happy as hell in hindsight. It just wasn't Cavill's time.

I was specifically thinking about Cooper because I didn't know whether or not Pine was really up for it.

I actually like Reynolds but I don't think he is ever going to "happen" like Cooper has. I'm rooting on him though.
