While some are excited to see Henry Cavill as Sentry, others shared that he would look good as other Marvel characters, such as Captain Britain, Hyperion, or a variant of Wolverine.

Sentry is almost similar to DC’s Superman. However, his origin and powers are very different from the DC superhero. The character has two sides, one side being good and the other being bad. The good side is called Sentry and the bad is known as the Void.
