According to Yahoo.com, Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) has been cast as the new “Superman” in the next film in the franchise, which is slated to be released in December 2012. The working title of the film is “Superman: Man of Steel”.

Cavill, 27, will play the dual roles of mild-mannered newspaperman Clark Kent and his high-flying alter ego in the film, which Warner Bros. will release in December 2012.

Zack Snyder (“300”) will direct from a script written by David S. Goyer and based on a story that Goyer developed with “Inception” director Christopher Nolan, who will serve as a producer.

Cavill was previously attached to the last Superman film, “Superman Returns”, but with the director changes the role ultimately went to Brandon Routh. Cavill also screen tested for the “Green Lantern”, but that role eventually went to Ryan Reynolds.

Now that Clark Kent/Superman has been cast. Now the next question is…Who will play Lois Lane?

Teri Hatcher (“Desperate Housewives”) will be taking a short trip from Wisteria Lane and to guest star on Smallville in the show’s tenth and final season.  This is amazing news for Superman and Smallville fans alike as a former Lois Lane, Hatcher (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”), will play mom to current Lois Lane (Erica Durance, “Smallville”).

According to Entertainment Weekly, Hatcher will play Lois Lane’s mother in a flashback of sorts as according to Superman folklore Lois’s mother, Ella, is deceased. Hatcher is suppose to be seen in episode 8, which is around TV sweeps time.

What a great score for the CW, as the show has been very successful in getting Superman alumni to guest star on the show in the past including Dean Cain (“Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman”) and the late Christopher Reeve from the Superman film franchise.  With many more guest stars planned to return (Aquaman, Supergirl, Brainiac, etc.)  Smallville’s final season is shaping up to be epic.

Smallville’s season 10 premiere is on September 24, 2010.

Julian Sands has been cast as Jor-El for the upcoming 9th season of “Smallville”. Jor-El is Kal-El’s (aka Clark Kent) biological father. Up to now, Jor-El hasn’t made an [on-screen] appearance on the show despite one episode where Tom Welling played Jor-El in a flashback, so this will be the first time Jor-El will be seen on screen. In previous seasons, the voice of Jor-El was provided by Terrence Stamp. According to MTV, we will see Jor-El make his on-screen debut in November in an episode titled “Kandor”. Read the full article on MTV.com.

Smallville’s 9th season will premiere on Friday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. Mark your calendars! 🙂

Here is an excerpt from the exclusive scoop by Michael Ausiello:

Who will be the “Green Lantern”?

Source: The Hollywood Reporter

**UPDATE**
Ryan Reynolds has been cast as the Green Lantern. Read the full post here.

The latest comic book to movie adaptation looks to be the “Green Lantern”. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. have three front-runners in mind. They are Bradley Cooper (“The Hangover”), Ryan Reynolds (“X-Men Origins: Wolverine”), and Justin Timberlake. Other candidates mentioned include Henry Cavill (“The Tudors”) and Jared Leto.

Interesting choices for the Green Lantern. Upon first glance, I would say Ryan Reynolds would look the part but considering he will be starring in the X-Men Origins spin off Deadpool – there could be some filming conflicts. In my opinion, Bradley Cooper has really emerged as a rising star in Hollywood within the past few years. His latest movie, “The Hangover”, has already grossed $210 million domestically and a sequel is already in the works according to this Variety article. I believe Cooper’s breakout role was on the ABC show “Alias” starring Jennifer Garner. “Alias” is one of my all-time favorite shows and I’m glad that the show’s alumni have really done well after the show ended in 2006. As far as Justin Timberlake, I don’t know if I see him as a super hero. I can understand the commercial appeal of choosing him, Timberlake has starred in some dramas (i.e. “Alpha Dog”) and comedies (i.e. “The Love Guru”), but I don’t know if he’s a fit for the role. On the other hand, I can totally picture Henry Cavill as the Green Lantern. Cavill has been linked to many super hero roles including Superman before Brandon Routh was ultimately chosen for “Superman Returns”. Stephenie Meyer, author of the “Twilight” book series, mentioned on her official website that Cavill was part of her dream cast before Robert Pattinson was cast as Edward Cullen for the movie. Cavill is currently starring as Charles Brandon, on the TV series “The Tudors”.

As with all the other super hero franchises, you need someone that can carry a franchise (i.e. sequels, merchandising, etc.) so my vote goes toward Henry Cavill! What do you think?

Call me “Stiletto”

Erica Durance as Stiletto

Erica Durance as Stiletto

Lois is in a story rut, and when an opportunity presents itself…she seizes it and she sticks to the facts.  Is this story too good to be true, or is it just that?  Lois is itching to get a new story so that she can boost her reputation and try to land an exclusive with the Red Blue Blur (aka Clark Kent).  She and Clark are listening to the police scanner as she tells Clark that when a crime is being committed, the Red Blue Blur is not that far behind.

Episode 19 of Season 8 is entitled: “Stiletto”.  This episode is very reminiscent of past Superman story arcs.  Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman had Teri Hatcher become “Ultrawoman” after a red kryptonite beam hits Clark which transfers his powers to Lois.  In the episode entitled “Wrath” in Season 7 of Smallville,  Lana absorbs Clark’s powers from a lightening bolt.  The thing that differs in “Stiletto” is that Lois (Erica Durance) saves her cousin Chloe (Allison Mack) from a mugger using her combat skills.  When Lois manages to subdue one of the baddies in the mugging, the crook asks if she was a superhero, and she says “Call me Stiletto”.
