Henry Cavill has had a lot of projects after his biggest break on the silver screen, which is Man of Steel. The actor has a lot of roles under his belt; starring in Netflix’s The Witcher, Enola Holmes, and even Mission Impossible. Now, fans are anticipating his biggest comeback as Superman in the upcoming DC movies.
But, even after all these years, Cavill still thinks that his iconic role as Superman changed his life big time. It was, after all, the big break that led him to the peak of stardom. More than that, the actor’s name almost became synonymous with the superhero, so what’s not to love about it?

Henry Cavill Reveals His Favorite Man of Steel Scene
During Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel watch party, the two discussed the movie and the actor’s memorable moments on set. The watch party was also joined by fans who had the opportunity to ask Snyder and Cavill some questions they had in mind. The Superman actor revealed how the character changed his life:
“That was a massive shift for me, and I remember so much of it…in very, very exacting detail. It was a massive, massive journey for me, and I still love watching that movie. And I will remember those days until the very end for me.”
Snyder and his wife Deborah asked the actor which scene from the film was his favorite to shoot. Cavill could not help but say everything about it was memorable to him.
“I don’t know I mean it’s tough to say to shoot, because I have fond memories of shooting all the scenes. That was a massive part of my life and a big fulcrum point.”
Although, there is one that stood out the most:
“I think what I loved watching the most was that really cool moment where Supes gets up after being floored by the World Engine, and then just slowly, slowly standing up through the gravity beam, and then just nails it. That turned out really, really cool.”
It turns out that this particular moment was Cavill’s most favorite part to watch. Indeed, that singular scene of him destroying World Engine’s gravity beam showed the maximum capacity of his strength.
Upcoming Projects For Henry Cavill
It has been quite a long time since fans have seen the actor wear the suit, and his recent appearance at the credits scene of Warner Bros’ Black Adam hinted at a major comeback of the character. The actor is also keen on playing the next James Bond, in which he is a strong contender amongst the roster of candidates. Cavill revealed that he was almost cast for the role in 2006 but lost it to Daniel Craig.
Hopefully, Henry Cavill will reprise his role soon as Superman in a much-anticipated sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. It has been nearly a decade since the movie was released, and with his upcoming battle against Black Adam, it is not impossible that he will get another solo film.
Man of Steel is available to stream via Hulu, Disney+, and ESPN+.
