The Tudors star was considered for the role of Clark Kent and his superhero alter-ego in the last incarnation of the franchise, 2006's Superman Returns - but actor Brandon Routh beat him to the coveted part.

Executives at Warner Bros. Pictures announced the new casting for the as-yet untitled next installment on Sunday (30Jan11).

The film is to be directed by 300's Zack Snyder, who said in a statement that Cavill is "the perfect choice to don the cape and 'S' shield".

The movie is scheduled for release in December, 2012.
