Henry Cavill in Man of Steel
Cavill was nearly cast as the Man of Steel almost a decade ago, before being replaced by Brandon Routh when director Bryan Singer took over for McG and made Superman Returns. Fate may have worked in his favor, as Cavill’s son of Krypton is a more complicated hero in a more complicated world. One thing hasn’t changed, though: he certainly looks the part. —Jeff Labrecque
