'Fifty Shades of Grey' Movie Casting News: Trailer Stars 'Superman' Henry Cavill and Alexis Bledel; Are They the Perfect Couple? (VIDEO)
Fans know exactly who they want to play Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey in the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" movie.
They are already making trailers starring their favorite characters to play the two key roles. A recent one stars "Superman" Henry Cavill.
The steamy "Fifty Shades" trilogy ("Fifty Shades of Grey," "Fifty Shades Darker" and "Fifty Shades Freed"), written by bestselling author E.L. James, tells the story of 22-year-old recent college grad Anastasia Steele, who enters into a dominant/submissive sexual relationship with 27-year old sexy billionaire Christian Grey and both explore the world of BDSM while also trying to figure out their relationship.

Cavill has always been a fan favorite, and recently hit the spotlight again for Christian when fans started to give proof that he is perfect for the role.
A new trailer stars him as sexy Christian Grey and "Gilmore Girls" Alexis Bledel as Anastasia (her face only shows once though).
The trailer is two minutes two seconds and is already raunchy. It features some parts from Cavill's 2008 cologne campaign.
It also has many sexy, racy, BDSM filled sex scenes. There is one where Cavill is shown smacking the butt of "Anastasia." There is also scenes of him tying her up in his favorite grey tie and some brief nudity and steamy sex.
The song also fits the trailer. It is "Never be Another" by Delilah.
Many fans on YouTube gave the video praise. One said it was "addicting" and that "there two are so absolutely perfect for the parts." Many agreed that Cavill is their perfect Christian Grey.
The 29-year-old actor has been linked to Christian Grey before fans even knew about the book.
As revealed by PolicyMic, Cavill was the inspiration for Edward Cullen in "The Twilight Saga."
"Indisputably the most difficult character to cast, Edward is also the one that I'm most passionately decided upon. The only actor I've ever seen who I think could come close to pulling off Edward Cullen is Henry Cavill," said Stephanie Meyer, the author of the "Twilight" series, told MTV News in 2009. "Henry was Albert, the young son in 'The Count of Monte Cristo.' Can you see it? I know I can!"
Christian Grey's character was inspired by Edward Cullen. James first wrote "Fifty Shades of Grey" as Twilight fan-fiction.
Cavill was reportedly in preliminary talks with the producers of "Fifty Shades," Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti.
According to Policy Mic, Cavill met De Luca in early July at Luca's office in Culvar City, Cali., where Cavill was promoting his upcoming movie "Man of Steel" at Comic-Con San Diego. Rumors claim "The Tudors" actor was seen coming in and out of De Luca's home/office while wearing Christian Grey's signature plaid shirt and five o'clock shadow.
Cavill fans give proof that actor should be picked to play Christian Grey because of a 2008 cologne commercial that features "Superman" as a sharply dressed Christian Grey-to be about to board a helicopter emblazoned with a letter "G," according to Policy Mic. They have also started a Pinterest page, "Henry Cavill (Christian Grey)," where they post pictures of Cavill resembling Grey's poses and demeanor.
The "Immortals" actor also expressed interest in playing Edward Cullen during the casting time (which Robert Pattsinson plays him now). Will he express interest in Christian Grey as well?
