"Fifty Shades Darker," the sequel to "Fifty Shades of Grey," might be bringing in some big name actors. According to the latest rumors, Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in "Man of Steel," could be joining the cast.

The reports are claiming that Cavill is being eyed for the role of Jack Hyde, Anastasia Steele's (Dakota Johnson) boss. In the second movie, based from E.L. James' best-selling trilogy, Steele, a recent college graduate, starts to work with Hyde, who is instantly attracted to her. Hyde's interest causes some tension between Steele and billionaire businessman, Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan).

Tony Skool of KpopStarz wrote, "There are also rumors that 'Man Of Steel' Star Henry Cavill will join Dakota Johnson in the 'Fifty Shades Of Grey' movie sequel. According to rumors Superman will play the villain. Following the blockbuster success of the movie adaptation to E.L. James' best selling novel, 'Fifty Shades of Grey,' a new report from Movie News Guide says Superman is in the running to play Jack Hyde."

"Fifty Shades Darker" is expected to follow the book's plot. However, a recent rumor claimed that the ending could be altered. The movie, which will be more of a thriller, will also reportedly include more intimate scenes between Steele and Grey, who have a BDSM sexual relationship. Other rumors reported that Dornan will agree to go full frontal for a bonus worth more than $1 million.

Other cast rumors claim that Charlize Theron could play Eleanor Lincoln/Mrs. Robinson.

"Fifty Shades Darker" is scheduled to hit theaters on Feb. 10, 2017.
