Superman Man of Steel Henry Cavill Up For Role of Tarzan From David Yates

Body

2432 Harry Potter's David Yates has been officially named as the director of the upcoming Tarzan movie, which appears to be the reason why he bowed out of doing the Justice League movie.

According to Vulture, Yates is set to meet with a few up-and-coming actors for the role, one of which is said to be the new Man of Steel Superman, Henry Cavill.

Henry Cavill recently finished filming Man of Steel and looks to begin work on the Great Wall of China mystery thriller, The Great Wall, which is said to be in pre-production with a 2014 release.

In addition, there has been mention of a sequel for Man of Steel as well as Henry Cavill appearing as Superman in the Justice League movie, which has a 2015 release date.

Among the other actors also said to be up for the role of Tarzan are Pacific Rim's Charlie Hunnam, True Blood's Alexander Skarsgård and Tom Hardy of The Dark Knight Rises.

If Henry Cavill does indeed play Tarzan, he would need to squeeze it in by next Fall if the rumor that the Justice League movie will begin filming in September is true.

Stay tuned to Cosmic Book News as more on the Man Of Steel develops.

Man Of Steel flies into theaters June 14th, 2013 directed by Zack Snyder starring, Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel, Diane Lane as Martha "Ma" Kent, Kevin Costner as Jonathan "Pa" Kent, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as Zod, and Russel Crowe as Jor-El.
