The internet has been a buzz with the news that British actor Henry Cavill was cast as the Man of Steel, Superman. It turns out he has a pretty interesting story. He was already cast as Superman before!
THEN, Cavill was almost cast as Batman! Turns out he was on Christopher Nolan's short list before ultimately casting Christian Bale.
THEN, Cavill was almost cast as James Bond, but lost the role to Daniel Craig.
THEN, Cavill was almost cast as Edward in the Twilight Saga. That went to the douche bag of a generation, Robert Pattinson.
THEN, Cavill was almost cast as the Green Lantern, but lost the role to Ryan Reynolds.
Holy mother of wow this guy's been through a lot. I mean those are four bonafide franchises the man lost out on.
Good luck, Henry.
