Henry Cavill Is Your New Superman!

Posted on January 31, 2011

Henry Cavill Is Your New Superman!

The identity of the new Superman has been revealed! Actor Henry Cavill, best known from the sexified historical royal drama, The Tudors, has officially been announced as the one and only Kryptonian juggernaut in Zack Snyder’s Superman: Man of Steel. Amidst rampant casting speculation that included names like True Blood’s Joe Manganiello and The Social Network’s Armie Hammer, the 27 year-old native of Jersey in the Channel Islands (not the one currently known for bad tans and venereal diseases) has emerged to put on the blue pajamas in the 2012 franchise reboot film. Perhaps already set for a mainstream break when he shares the screen with the likes of Bruce Willis and Sigourney Weaver in upcoming film, The Cold Light of Day, and this Fall’s Immortals with Mickey Rourke, Cavill has landed a potentially star-making role as the new Man of Steel. Of course, for the last Superman, Brandon Routh, (to no fault of his own,) it turned out to be a raw deal. What will Henry Cavill bring to the Superman franchise?

According to director Zack Snyder in the joint announcement from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures:

“In the pantheon of superheroes, Superman is the most recognized and revered character of all time, and I am honored to be a part of his return to the big screen.  I also join Warner Bros., Legendary and the producers in saying how excited we are about the casting of Henry.  He is the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield.”

Making a choice not unlike the one that Christopher Nolan (who has been retained as a producer for this film) made in casting his Batman, we now have a Superman that will be working to hide an English accent. (And hopefully, not anger management issues.)

I actually had the True Blood star Joe Manganiello pegged for the part, assuming that Zack Snyder may have wanted to go the 300 route with a buff, bad-ass Man of Steel. I’m not quite sure where the casting of Cavill leaves the project, but of course, with December 2012 being written-in as the release date, there’s obviously plenty of time for things to take shape. Cavill’s casting certainly doesn’t negate the possibility that Snyder is going balls-to-walls with a new, more action-oriented version of Superman. However, it does seem to indicate that he was indeed looking for something specific in the performance itself which Cavill was able to provide. What that may be, remains a mystery.

Personally, I’m still somewhat bummed that they were not able to continue the franchise with Brandon Routh, who, in putting on a decent performance, was seriously done a disservice by Superman Returns. However, I remain optimistic that Zack Snyder understands that in redoing the Superman origin tale that we’ve all seen numerous times, it’s going to require a strong antagonistic force that is directly connected to the destruction of Krypton, making the process more compelling. — Brainiac should be that villain, and steadily-paced action should be the main focus.

Are any of you familiar with the work of Henry Cavill? How do you think he’ll perform as Superman?

Aurora Borealis Timelapse HD

Posted on November 24, 2010

This is just because this video rocks! I have seen the Aurora (also known as the “Northern Lights”) from high up north in Canada where they covered the entire sky from east to west, north to south and it was truly one of the most spectacular things I have ever seen in my entire life. Pictures and videos will never do them justice but they come closer all the time.

Get 6 Free Meals!

Posted on November 23, 2010

You can now get 6 free meals (Limit: one per family. You pay only the shipping and handling.) so you can taste the eFoods Global products for yourself while having nothing to lose.

I eat these meals regularly and I definitely think they are far and away the best food I have tasted for personal food storage. In fact, I like some of these meals enough I will be eating them now and then just because I like the taste of them.

The Cheesy Chicken Rick Casserole is a good example. I throw a couple tablespoons of butter in and then some salt and pepper and it sure tastes excellent to me.

The fact it has a shelf life of over 15 years and it is an extremely cheap meal and it is extremely easy to prepare and it is part of an outstanding business opportunity etc. are definite added bonuses.

In fact, it was much easier to get excited about being an IBO (Independent Business Owner) after I tried the food.

I really do believe that once most people try the food they are going to be more than happy buying some to put aside for personal or family food storage as well as purchase more now and then to replenish what gets eaten. I know that is what I will be doing because it makes perfect sense to me.

I am a big eater but it is still less than two bucks for me to eat a full meal that I will usually have trouble finishing. That alone is enough for it to make sense to me.

With the economy and the troubles of the world looking like they are only going to get worse I think one of the best opportunities out there is with eFoods Global. It combines good sense food storage and food storage products, a purpose-driven organization and high levels of teamwork with a truly unique and outstanding business opportunity.

You can get many questions about eFoods Global, the products, ProPay, the opportunity and more here.
