— Henry Cavill Cast as Zack Snyder’s Superman

Like with Superman Returns, the men behind the film looked for an unknown to play the titular character. Having only starred in a small handful of films such as Stardust, Tristan & Isolde and Count of Monte Cristo (he played Albert Mondego, the son of Count Mondego), they have found a relatively unknown. I for one thought Brandon Routh was an excellent choice for taking over the red cape in the last film and was hoping he would still be able to play the role once again. But the men behind the film, along with Warner Bros. do not want any connection between the films….even though it is inevitably going to happen no matter what they do. Oh, and the men behind the 2nd attempt at bringing back the Superman franchise are Christopher Nolan , who magnificently brought life back into the Batman franchise, will be serving as a producer on the film and Zack Snyder (300, Dawn of The Dead, Sucker Punch), who was picked by Christopher Nolan himself, has been given the directorial reigns.

So I personally can’t have anything but faith in these guys to bring us something spectacular on-screen. It will be interesting to see how Zack Snyder’s vision will be shown with Christopher Nolan there beside him. Only time will tell.

— Robin Willliams To Play Dr. Hugo Strange in Dark Knight Rises?

Robin Williams is an amazing dramatic actor though I believe it’s safe to say that when his name is heard, comedy is the first thing that comes to mind. What stands as a rumor right now, Robin Williams would be playing a Batman-obsessed villain psychologist. I don’t know about you guys, but this sounds awesome. With the recent announcement of Anne Hathaway (Love and Other Drugs, The Devil Wears Prada) playing Selina Kyle/Catwoman and Tom Hardy (Inception, RocknRolla) playing Bane….this is going to be on helluva ending to Christopher Nolan’s Batman Trilogy…..especially if they follow a story arc in the comic books relating to Bane….the audience may just poop themselves.
