Superman has been the most renowned superhero for decades. From the first Superman film in 1948 until the last in 2021, everyone adores and loves this all-time favorite superhero. Zack Snyder’s 2013 blockbuster Man of Steel gave Henry Cavill the opportunity to embrace the mantle. And there is no doubt that The Witcher star did the character justice by pushing him to his limits.
