Just a few years ago, just about the only people who had heard of Henry Cavill were fans of Showtime's historical drama, "The Tudors," in which he played Duke of Suffolk Charles Brandon.
But all that changed when Cavill was cast as Clark Kent/Superman in Zack Snyder's reboot "Man of Steel," which finally hits theaters this week. Now all the stars are aligned for the brave new Last Son of Krypton, who's starring in a big film and might already have another big one on the horizon ("The Man From U.N.C.L.E.").
