'Man of Steel' Henry Cavill New Frontrunner For 'Fifty Shades'?

'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Movie: Henry Cavill New Cast Frontrunner?
Are you looking at mysterious millionaire Christian Grey?

Seems like Fifty Shades of Grey got a little superhero boost from the Man of Steel himself as mega-hunk Henry Cavill just leapt to the top of the Christian Grey potentials list in a single bound.

And rightfully so! After seeing Cavill clad in spandex and saving Louis Lane, handcuffs, whips, and Anastasia Steele (oh, how appropriate a conundrum of a last name) is surely the next step! And that oh-so-unforgiving Superman suit gave us a glimpse into what he could bring to the bedroom ...

Maybe that's why he's leading the charge for the highly anticipated film as a fan favorite. After all, numbers like $116.6 million opening night for Man of Steel don’t lie and, well, Cavill's amazing package is worth seeing in high definition.

Still, I'm not getting my panties in a twist … yet.

Casting couldn't begin until a director was hired and with Sam Taylor-Johnson newly tied to the project as of this week, I wonder if she agrees with Cavill fans that the Man of Steel has enough steel to fill out those ripped up jeans that are carefully tucked away and waiting in the red room.

Pant.

Should she debate, I'm sure Twi-hards could convince otherwise since Stephenie Meyer originally wrote Twilight with daydreams of Cavill starring as her beloved Edward Cullen. (Cheat sheet: Fifty Shades of Grey started as Twilight fan fiction.)

But would Superman even accept the raunchy role? Well, he's gone on record expressing interest … pending the right director and script. Now he's being picky. We've seen him get down and raunchy in The Tudors. Don't deprive us now, oh Henry! (Crushable)

While mum's still the word about official Fifty Shades casting lists, these stars are already baring it all (and then some!):
