Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures made the announcement Sunday morning and said that the reboot of the tentpole franchise would hit theaters in December 2012.

Zack Snyder, who's directed "300," "Watchmen" and the upcoming "Sucker Punch" for Warners, was tapped in October as director of the yet-to-be titled Superman project.

"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," Snyder said in a statement. "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."
