Becoming the most famous Superman of the 21st century, Henry Cavill has left an indelible mark on the superhero franchise, despite the spotty reception of many of his films. He first starred as the big blue boy scout in DC Extended Universe’s Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder.

He later went on to star as the most popular superhero in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and two versions of Justice League. Giving the character a dark and brooding trait startled many fans on the first watch, leading to many wanting him to be replaced, but time has changed since then.

Will Henry Cavill return?

The Witcher actor last played Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which was unceremoniously left non-canon by the studio. This meant the version that fans preferred wouldn’t be the Superman they would see in future DC films, and this naturally upset many fans.

Since then, fans have been ceaselessly campaigning to have Henry Cavill return to the DCEU through tweets and petitions. This included a rumor of Henry Cavill attending the San Diego Comic-Con, under the DC films banner, but he ended up being a no-show.

Furthermore, rumors of him having a cameo appearance in Black Adam also sparked speculation of him returning to the DCEU. On the release of Black Adam, fans were treated to a short but fulfilling cameo by the actor, due to which many suspect Man of Steel 2 might finally be in the works.

The pure soul of Henry Cavill

The actor has found immense popularity on the internet, being affable in interviews and overall a nice guy. His love for video games has also helped him garner many fans, with his PC-building video on YouTube going viral.

Posting on Instagram. Henry Cavill celebrated national superhero day, along with his co-stars in the superhero industry. He tagged actors from the Marvel and DC camp, including Chris Evans, Gal Gadot, Jason Mamoa, Robert Downey Jr., and Chadwick Boseman. The caption read:

“Fly your colours today brothers and sisters. Its National Superhero day! I personally just want to thank all of you guys and gals for keeping us so entertained and setting such a fantastic example for superhero fans, young and old, around the world.”

This post has recently gone viral on Twitter, with many noting how pure and kind the Mission Impossible actor is. Also, despite him tagging many of his superhero colleagues, only Aquaman star Jason Mamoa responded, stating: “Following your lead brother, Love ya.”

With the actor’s job prospects at an all-time high, it’s highly possible we’ll see him join many franchises including House of the Dragon, MCU, and James Bond.
