After Cavill’s romance and short-lived engagement with Ellen Whitaker, the actor found a partner in Gina Carano. Their romance at the time was a high-profile one, considering how Cavill was quickly rising as a global phenomenon after being cast as Superman in the Zack Snyder film. Carano too was a legend in her own right after being dubbed as the “face of women’s MMA”, a title which she has vocally and vehemently rejected ever since.
An insider close to the couple revealed to Us Weekly in 2013, “Gina is a complete firecracker. And she’s finally found someone who can handle her.” The two began dating in 2012 and found stability with each other even throughout Cavill’s explosive rise to fame in 2013 after the premiere of Man of Steel. However, their 2-year relationship ended after the pair split up in 2014 and eventually found love elsewhere. Although controversy would stubbornly follow them around over the later years.

The Aftermath of Henry Cavill & Gina Carano’s Relationship
Gina Carano’s career in Hollywood was a glorious, although short-lived, one. The former mixed martial artist was cast as a supervillain in Ryan Reynolds’ 2016 film, Deadpool, which established her reputation as an actress within the industry. But Carano rose in the mainstream industry via her role in the Star Wars Disney+ series, The Mandalorian. Her reputation, soon after, suffered a massive blow when the actress received incendiary backlash from fans all over the globe over her Twitter activity involving pronouns, which many took to understand as her ridiculing the transgender community.

An in-depth and comprehensive interview with Ben Shapiro on 21st February 2021 worked toward highlighting her angle of the story and revealing the incident in its full capacity, including details of her firing by Disney and what Carano intended when she updated her bio to say “beep/bop/boop”. Henry Cavill, too, came under scrutiny in 2020 for his previous involvement with the actress and her Twitter controversy.
The pair have since moved on with different partners. Gina Carano was rumored to be dating the American Muay Thai fighter Kevin Ross back in 2021, as per reports by The Sun. Henry Cavill, in the meanwhile, has found romance with Hollywood producer, Natalie Viscuso. The latter pair have progressed their relationship into a business commitment as well with the duo’s multi-year deal at Amazon for Cavill’s Warhammer 40,000 live-action series adaptation, which the actor will executive produce as well as star in.
