Variety: Henry Cavill Could Have Been 'King Arthur'

We have seen Henry shine in The Tudors, so we're not surprised that according to Variety he was up for the part of King Arthur in the upcoming feature.

Variety says Henry was one of three actors who read for the part in the Warner Bros. film, that will be helmed by The Man from U.N.C.L.E. director Guy Ritchie. The other two actors were Jai Courtney and Charlie Hunnam, who reportedly has been offered the role.

While we have no doubt Henry would have nailed such an iconic character (sword in the stone? pfft..) -- we wouldn't mind seeing him as bad boy Sir Lancelot who *screams* Duke of Suffolk.

Calling Guy Ritchie now. Learn more about the film over at Deadline.

Henry will next be seen on the big screen in August of 2015, playing suave American agent Napoleon Solo in Ritchie's U.N.C.L.E. -- so we're crossing our fingers he remains in the mix for other key roles in King Arthur. Regardless, he's already Superman to the world, can't wait to see what comes next.

  1. IMO, Henry is the perfect "scene's stealer", so for me he would be perfect as Lancelot. Plus the " easy loyalty" was also portrayed in The Tudors, of course. Let's go now for the difficult one! :-) This is my selfish ...... , to see him again with beard and pony tail :-) :-) :-) :-) :-) :-)

  2. Well there is a book series that is being made into a TV series. I think Henry would make a perfect Gideon Cross in Sylvia Day's 'The Crossfire Series'!! Imo ��

  3. King Arthur Henry SuperSoloCav-El... (y) <3 <3 <3
    He'd make a good King. Nice pics & gifs...I'd like to kiss him too. :D
    Thanks for sharing, HCN (y) :) <3

  4. Already King of my dreams ;)

  5. EntertainmentWise is skepitical about the report that Henry actually read for the role of King Arthur.
    They point out that , with his commitments as Superman over the next few of years, it's difficult to see that he would have the time tor take on another huge movie. I tend to agree with them.

  6. I agree...But Superman is King of the Universe. No? :)

  7. For Guy to even consider Henry means they got along well on set for UNCLE. Maybe his schedule for MOS/Justice League was conflicting with the filming schedule for King Arthur. It's great that WB is letting him do other work (in the WB realm) while he's working on MOS/Justice League. After the money MOS brought in last year, they now know Henry is a "bankable" actor :-) Charlie Hunnam is also a WB guy and is done with filming SOA. This role will actually be great for him because it will let people see him in a different light than just the bad boy character of Jax. I'm happy for him! Both actors are great new additions to the Warner Brothers family! :-)
