There are some very intriguing rumors arriving this week for fans of the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie trilogy involving Henry Cavill. While the “Man of Steel” actor was originally viewed as a very popular contender for the role of Christian Grey during casting for the first film installment, major movie execs are reportedly looking to see whether Cavill should play the “villain-like” role of Jack Hyde in the sequel, “Fifty Shades Darker.” Travelers Today News shared this Saturday, May 23, 2015, that audiences are already rallying that the handsome 32-year-old be offered the important part. Do you agree?
For many women a couple of years ago, Henry Cavill was the perfect individual to play Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie. While that role was instead given to Jamie Dornan down the line, it seems that this “Superman” star might in fact be participating in a different way on the “Fifty Shades Darker” film set. Numerous sources have rumors circulating that Cavill might be cast as Anastasia Steele’s commanding boss (and sometimes considered an antagonistic “villain”), Jack Hyde. While difficult to define him as a complete enemy in the books, he does have some devious plans in store for Ana as well as a dark past and some serious history with — and angst towards — the Greys. That should be reason enough to be vested in who might tackle the upcoming role, even for non book-followers.
Readers should note that this news regarding Henry Cavill set in the part for the “Fifty Shades Darker” sequel remain unconfirmed, despite several sources alleging the rumors to be true. (In addition to steamy talk surrounding Jack Hyde’s potential casting role, many are also heatedly discussing who might be best to play Elena Lincoln, a mature Mrs. Robinson like figure. Charlize Theron, Angelina Jolie, Catherine Zeta-Jones, and Michelle Pfeiffer seem like highly popular current choices.) Anastasia Steele’s boss, Jack Hyde, is initially described in the books as another successful businessman (much like Christian) with piercing blue eyes that can gaze straight into your inner thoughts.
Seeing Henry Cavill, so often starring in movies today as the handsome and beloved hero, be cast in a more villainous position is certainly an interesting proposition. There is little doubt that the talented actor could very well take on the role if offered — and if he accepts, of course — and for those who had their hearts set on him playing Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” this might be a major consolation prize.

One thing is for certain; while the first film may have already made its grand entrance earlier this year, the overall passion for the “50 Shades” franchise is still burning quite strong.
