Henry Cavill says playing Superman made him a better person, fans praise the actor and slam Dean Cain again
'When you meet children, children don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there’s a responsibility that comes with that' shared the actor
May saw fans praise Henry Cavill for his stellar job in 'Man of Steel'. And while recent developments say he would be reprising his role in the DCEU as Superman to some capacity, the British actor, during the Variety‘s Actors on Actors issue, told Patrick Stewart that he hopes to continue playing Superman for a few more years.
"I’ve always been a fan of Superman,” said Cavill. “With a character like that, you carry the mantle with you offset. And it becomes part of your public representation. When you meet children, children don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there’s a responsibility that comes with that. Because it’s such a wonderful character, it’s actually a responsibility I’m happy to have, and I hope that I get to play more of Superman in years to come."
And this line won hearts on Twitter as they generously heaped praise on Cavill. "This is a man of character! Hope DeanCain watches this and realizes what a creep he is for supporting Trump! No wonder Hollywood does not want you around anymore! @realDonaldTrump! @HatchingChange @RealDeanCain Superman is an immigrant who wants to make the world better," a fan remarked on Twitter and he immediately earned a response from Cain who wrote, "Bigot".
Cain, played Superman in the TV series 'Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman' and is known to be a Trump supporter.
"All this man needs is a good script and good director and he would be one of the best supermans of all time," a fan tweeted. "Henry always sounds gentle and an incredible guy, he deserves more chances to build his own Superman. His potential is not a problem, he is pure potential!" wrote another fan. "The audience loves Henry Cavill as Superman. They need better writers and directors to envision Superman’s story," a fan opined.
The opinion was seconded by many across the social media platform. "This man is LITERALLY Superman. He was born for it, I want to see as much of him as Kal-El as possible," said one of the fans. "@warnerbros, you are wasting this man's good talents by sidelining him because you're not sure how to "modernize" the character," a fan exclaimed. "Henry you do not need Superman to define you, you are wonderful without the cape , it is your path either way much success and you are loved, my dignity does not allow me to watch It," a fan praised.
To end with, here's a classic: "He is our superman."
