The British actor Henry Cavill cast as Superman

NEW YORK – British actor Henry Cavill is going up, up and away. 

Cavill will star as Superman (and, visibly, Clark Kent) in the next payment of the movie franchise. 

Warner Bros. films announced the casting Sunday. 

The film is to be directed by "300" director Zack Snyder, who says in a announcement Cavill is "the perfect selection to don the cape and `S' shield." 

No label has been announced for the film, which is intended to reboot the franchise after its latest incarnation fizzled. 

The 2006 movie "Superman Returns" was directed by Bryan Singer and starred Brandon Routh as the Man of Steel. Cavill is fairly unknown. 

He had been measured for the blockbuster roles of Batman, James Bond and even the previous version of Superman. 

He co starred on Showtime's "The Tudors." Warner Bros. is targeting to release on December 2012.
