Colin O’Donaghue Also In The RunningYesterday, massive news broke that Henry Cavill had won the role of Superman in Zack Snyder’s new adaptation for Warner Brothers. Cavill is best known for his work as Charles Brandon on “The Tudors," but as predicted, the role went to a relative unknown, and someone who has experienced his fair share of audition hell. Cavill had been eyed to wear tights for "Batman Begins" and "Green Lantern" (among other franchises) and he even once before landed the role of Superman when it was in McG's hands, but lost the part when the project changed over to Bryan Singer who eventually went with Brandon Routh for "Superman Returns."
