Loyalists of the E.L. James' "Fifty Shades of Grey" franchise continue to buzz over which actor will ultimately land the coveted role of S&M-billionaire Christian Grey in its movie adaptation. 

One of the film's producer's Dana Brunetti recently sent shockwaves through the internet over a mysterious tweet he put up on Friday regarding the flick's casting process.  To top it off, the respective post may have indicated that "Man of Steel's" Henry Cavill is a top contender. 

Brunetti tweeted on Thursday that he was "meeting with 'agents' at CAA."

Although the posting may come across as meaningless at first glance, many "Fifty Shades" fans have picked up on the fact that Creative Artists Agency (CAA) represents Cavill, who is undoubtedly one of its top clients.

To add to the enamor of the 29-year old, he was recently coined as the "Breakout Star of 2013" by Fandango.  In the contest, Cavill beat out British movie stars Nicholas Hoult and Sam Clafin of "The Hunger Games:  Catching Fire," among several other notable male celebrities.

Many women will surely be pulling for Cavill to don the Grey role due to his dashing looks and well-chiseled physique. 

"If the Man of Steel is the breakout star of 2013, then he totally should be #Christian Grey!" a fan of the franchise tweeted.

According to Details, the 29-year-old had also spoken about the possibility of playing the hunky CEO.

"Whether that happens, that decision will be made at the time it has to be made.  It would be a very different kind of thing than 'Man of Steel,'" Cavill stated.

Up until this point, the producers attached to the film have remained discreet on their casting approach. Early in 2012, Focus Features and Universal Pictures purchased the rights to the "Fifty Shades."  The racy novel has now sold well over 20 million copies and the film should do just as well.
