The Man of Steel actor expressed his sadness about accepting the news shortly after he was reinstated as the character. Fans have been demanding the return of his version of Superman, saying that someone who looks like and has been the character for so long is truly ideal for the role as well. Cavill’s wish to play the hero remains dormant once again, even if the fans continue to root for him. Gunn on the other hand is being demanded to be fired by the audience because of all the decisions to push out everything Zack Snyder built, including a fan-favorite hero.
