Your heads are about to explode... Cavill.... Superman... and why a Brit is the best choice to play a superhero....

Really this one has something for everyone: British actors in American movies, the decline of the USA, and passing references to Andrew Garfield and even Heath Ledger! Full article at length but here's the best bit: I believe there’s been a certain feminisation of the American male,” said John Papsidera, The Dark Knight’s casting director. “[In the UK], men are still raised as men. Guys like Henry Cavill, there’s an easy masculinity to them.” An unnamed talent agent went further: “By the time a kid reaches 12 or 13 in America, if he’s displayed any talent, he’s steered towards athletics in high school. Kids who want to do theatre… they’re immediately labelled wimps, or – worse – fags.” Superhero dressing-up has perhaps become the ultimate test of one’s manhood.
