From Man of Steel to Man From UNCLE?

May 29th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Oh Henry Cavill, if Man of Steel is as good as it looks we imagine there’s going to be a lot of stuff like this over the next while…

Yes, with the news last week that Tom Cruise had decided to pull out of The Man From UNCLE (here) to focus on the new installment of Mission: Impossible, we knew the names would soon be bounced around to fill his shoes…

We know that Guy Ritchie is still directing and the Armie Hammer is still attached as llya Kuryakin but alas, what is an UNCLE movie without Napolean Solo? Well, worry no more because the internet is now swarming with rumours of Superman himself, Henry Cavill, as being in line for the role.

We’re taking this with a pinch of salt, but Hollywood is fickle and does love a ‘flavour of the month’, so we certainly aren’t ruling it out altogether…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
