It has been announced that Henry Cavill and Amy Adams will star in the next installment of the “Superman” franchise. Cavill will play Clark Kent/Superman, and Adams will take the role of Lois Lane in the series reboot by Zack Snyder. The film is scheduled to be released in December of 2012.
New ‘Superman’ film jumps casting problems in single bound
The long awaited second reboot of the “Superman” film series has finally cast two of the most important characters. Amy Adams, recently nominated for an Academy Award for her role in “The Fighter,” has been cast as Lois Lane, and Henry Cavill has been cast as Clark Kent/Superman, according to Time. The film is being directed by Zack Snyder, who directed the recently released film “Sucker Punch” as well as “300″ and “The Watchmen,” among others. Diane Lane and Kevin Costner were cast as Clark Kent’s parents, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cavill, from the Channel Islands, will be the first foreign-born actor to don the red cape to fight for “Truth, Justice and the American Way.”
Snyder possibly on shaky ground as director
The 2012 reboot, titled “Superman: Man of Steel” is being written and produced by Christopher Nolan but directed by Zack Snyder. Snyder’s directorial talent was praised after “Dawn of the Dead” and “300,” but his films since then have come under an increasing amount of criticism. His latest movie, “Sucker Punch” is getting raked over the coals by critics. Critics in some media outlets, such as MTV and the Los Angeles Times, have been questioning whether Snyder should be trusted with such an iconic franchise and character. However, the presence of a heavyweight like Nolan creates hope that the film will finally be the remake that the series deserves.
Another remake of a remake
Unless Warner Bros. decides to pull the plug on this film, “Superman: Man of Steel” will be the third feature-length film for the Superman character. The last remake was released in 2006 by Bryan Singer, who also directed the first two installments in the “X-Men” franchise. The film was heavily criticized for dragging too long and lacking action, which can be the kiss of death for a superhero film. This reboot of a reboot has been rumored to be in the works for some time, and the hope is that someone skilled at delivering action packed, visually thrilling films can successfully revive the Man of Steel.
