After seeing Henry Cavill in the Superman costume flying over the city of Metropolis, fans were convinced that the role was made for him. Not only does Cavill look spectacular as Superman. But the confusion, fear, and determination of Clark Kent that he brings make his performance phenomenal. With his bulky physique, Henry Cavill made having supernatural strength realistic. This does not come easy, and Cavill is known to practice intense workouts and perform his fight sequences by himself.
This is the reason why fans loved every bit of watching the British actor flawlessly play the superhero with a red cape. Henry Cavill as Superman was iconic because, albeit his possessing superhero powers, he seemed realistic and flawed. In the Man Of Steel movie, Superman got himself arrested to prove that he is not a threat, which no other Superman has ever done. Given how much fans loved to see him as Superman, they have been begging for another movie. But with the number of DC movies becoming fewer, fans were losing hope. However, after a certain announcement, they are raging.
Why are Henry Cavill fans angry after the announcement of the Keanu Reeves movie?
Time has been slow for fans of Henry Cavill as Superman. After Justice League in 2017, it has been four years of pleading on the fans’ part and four years of rejecting the pleas on DC’s part. The fandom was taking it fairly well, fulfilling their desires by watching Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia on Netflix.
That is until it was announced that Keanu Reeves would return as John Constantine. Furthermore, Warner Bros. Discovery will be producing another Contastine sequel starring Keanu Reeves and directed by Francis Lawrence.
The rage of Henry Cavill fans soon trampled over the excitement at the return of John Constantine. After David Zaslav, the CEO of Warner Bros Discovery Inc got our hopes up by showing a small peak of the superhero in the upcoming Dwayne Johnson starter Black Adam, fans want more.
Given the rumors of the British actor making his debut in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, it seems very unlikely we will get another movie starring Henry Cavill as Superman. Not just that, but the Superman movie starring Michael B Jordan is also halted. But DC fans are still hanging onto a thin thread of hope.
