Henry Cavill Is Your New Superman!

The identity of the new Superman has been revealed! Actor Henry Cavill, best known from the sexified historical royal drama, The Tudors, has officially been announced as the one and only Kryptonian juggernaut in Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel. Amidst rampant casting speculation that included names like True Blood's Joe Manganiello and The Social Network's Armie Hammer, the 27 year-old native of Jersey in the Channel Islands (not the one currently known for bad tans and venereal diseases) has emerged to put on the blue pajamas in the 2012 franchise reboot film. Perhaps already set for a mainstream break when he shares the screen with the likes of Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver in upcoming film, The Cold Light of Day, and this Fall's Immortals with Mickey Rourke, Cavill has landed a potentially star-making role as the new Man of Steel. Of course, for the last Superman, Brandon Routh, (to no fault of his own,) it turned out to be a raw deal. What will Henry Cavill bring to the Superman franchise?

Wonder Woman Pilot To Be Directed By McG?

Will Wonder Woman be spinning away to her new TV series with McG at the helm? TV Line's Michael Ausiello is reporting that the project, produced and pitched by David E. Kelley, does indeed have its sights set on the high-profile director/producer to tackle the pilot for NBC. Known as director of the Charlie's Angels films, 2009's Terminator Salvation, and the upcoming Ouija board project (???), McG's work in television as executive producer of shows like Supernatural, Human Target, Nikita, and Chuck have earned him a resume with enough femme fatale cred that puts him at the front of the line of hopefuls for the Wonder Woman reboot pilot. Despite the mixed feelings some might get from the mention of McG, the prospect of his involvement in the critical first episode may possibly change how this series is perceived. What will we get?

True Blood's Werewolf The Front-Runner For Superman?

Could True Blood's resident hunky werewolf be the favorite to take the coveted role of Superman in Zack Snyder's Superman: Man of Steel? Well, coming via tweet from The LA Times' Hero Complex, the latest rumor has indeed named Joe Manganiello as the front-runner. With fellow DC/Warner property The Dark Knight Rises having confirmed its primary cast, the attention of Internet rumors would undoubtedly turn towards the Superman reboot project, which is set to hit theaters in December 2012, just a scant five months after Rises. With Superman Returns star Brandon Routh booted out of the mix, the speculated list of candidates for the blue-pajama-wearing Kryptonian included names like Armie Hammer of The Social Network, Ian Somerhalder of The Vampire Diaries, and Scott Porter of Friday Night Lights. However, the name of True Blood star, Manganiello remained at top of the list, due to a mix of his own ripped physique that's constantly on display on the show, as well as a one-man interview campaign consistently letting folks know that he definitely wants the role. Is there any validity to this rumor?

Black Panther Film Moves Forward At Marvel

It seems that the long-planned, never-realized Black Panther movie project may finally be moving forward. Marvel Studios has hired documentary writer/editor Mark Bailey to pen the script for the big screen debut of T'Challa, the African Prince-turned costumed superhero. The news may be the culmination of nearly two decades of unrealized plans for the feature film, which had been floating the name of Wesley Snipes as the titular character since as early as 1992. However, the timing would never be right, and even after the rights to the property went back from Columbia Pictures to Marvel in 2005, things would not work out for Snipes, who even in 2006, was stating his intentions to star in the film. However, the project would be put in developmental purgatory, and as for Snipes -- well, maybe they can bake a cake and sneak a Black Panther costume into his cell. With Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige on board as producer, what can we expect from this often-overlooked Avengers member?

Links of TheFeed: Hipster Superheroes

Imagine, if you will, that Peter Parker is on assignment for the Daily Bugle with his new plastic Holga Camera he just bought from Urban Outfitters. He's about to take a picture of a pretty bird when suddenly a bank robbery occurs just down the street. What does he do? Does he: A. Don the Spidey suit and take down the bad guys, B. Crack some witty joke and then punch someone in the jaw, or C. Pull out his iPhone (encased in vintage plastic) and tweet that the robbers should drive a more economically viable vehicle. 

If you answered C, you are correct. Well, at least you're correct according to this hilarious video that envisions all superheroes as pompous hipsters. Check it out in this week's links!

X-Men: First Class: New Photos & More

New X-Men: First Class photos are coming in droves and the film is finally starting to take shape. (See more pics below.) Besides getting our first glimpse of Kevin Bacon as the villainous Sebastian Shaw, pics of James McAvoy's Charles Xavier and Michael Fassbender's Erik Lehnsherr/Magneto displaying their dysfunctional friendship seem to be the most telling of the film's purpose. Starting with a leaked cast photo earlier in the week, the past few days have certainly yielded a plethora of revealing looks at director Mathew Vaughn's head-scratching prequel to the X-Men film franchise. Regarding the leaked cast photo, which Fox had ordered taken off sites, only to have hi-res official versions subsequently show up, the director was apparently most displeased. It wasn't so much because some big secret was let loose, but rather that -- well, frankly -- he thought they sucked and reflected bad on his film. Vaughn recently spoke to Slashfilm and let loose his feelings on the photo and brings some new perspective to the film.

The Dark Knight Rises: Anne Hathaway Is Catwoman! Tom Hardy Is Bane!

Years of rumors and speculation have just been put to rest: The Dark Knight Rises has just named its villains! An announcement directly from Warner Bros. has revealed that Anne Hathaway will play the one and only Selina Kyle/Catwoman and that Tom Hardy will play Bane! The news should come as somewhat of a surprise to the fan community, who had been entertaining recent rumors that seemed to point to Catwoman not being in the film and Tom Hardy playing either Hugo Strange or Black Mask. The news of Hathaway's turn as Batman's feline-fetish-fancying nemesis/sometime hook-up also likely rules out the presence of the rumored inclusion of Talia al Ghul, who would have served in that same love/hate capacity. The bombshell announcement may not necessarily quell all the rumor mills entirely, but now, for the first time, we have a pretty good official picture as to what we can expect from what will likely be director Christopher Nolan's final film in the Batman series. In the announcement, the director comments on the new casting acquisitions.

New Captain America Photo Reveals Complete Costume

A new photo from this summer's Captain America: The First Avenger gives us a new look at the super-powered-patriot's complete costume. Sure, we've seen concept art and sporadic set photos, including a mask-less portrait on a recent cover of Entertainment Weekly. While some of those photos have displayed the evolution that his costume will undergo during the course of the film, we had still yet to see the actual image of Chris Evans in the final and definitive version of his Captain America digs, mask and all. Well, EW's latest issue has provided us with just that image. While an ultra-blurry version of this photo leaked earlier this week, a viewable (official) version has just been made available. It may be one of those things where you kind of already knew what it would look like, but it's nevertheless quite an impressive sight once you see it. Hit the read more link and take a look at the full photo.

First Look At Spider-Man With Andrew Garfield

The upcoming 2012 Spider-Man reboot film still may not even have a title, but Sony Pictures has nevertheless revealed the first look at star Andrew Garfield in his new wall-crawling pajamas! For this film, whose mere existence has been a heated point of debate among fans after plans for Sam Raimi's fourth Spider-Man effort fell through, the question of how director Marc Webb would distinguish this film may have gotten its first clue with the new image. Would the (500) Days of Summer director take Spidey on a self-fascinated, hipster-ish, emo romp in the Big Apple? Or an intense, over-the-top, gritty rollercoaster of triumph and tragedy? Well, not to say that one picture answers all of that, but it certainly makes a statement about where this film may be heading. Click the read more to see the new Spidey in all his glory.

No Shared Universe For The Dark Knight Rises And Superman Reboot?

Producer Charles Roven has credits attributed to him in a vast array of big movies, including some of the biggest comic book film adaptations. Two of those happen to be the upcoming third film in Christopher Nolan's Batman series, The Dark Knight Rises and Zack Snyder's upcoming reboot of Superman. In a recent interview discussing his current project, Nicolas Cage vehicle Season of the Witch, he answers a few questions about the two highly-anticipated films. While both movies are slated for the second half of 2012, they've been the subject of speculation for few years, at this point. One major point of speculation, which was re-stoked last month with another rumor, surrounded whether or not DC and Warner would take the reboot of Superman as an opportunity to link together the movie universes of its two signature heroes. Well, Roven would not only address this issue, but also discusses the process that both directors Nolan and Snyder will undergo, with the shooting of these films likely to begin real soon.
