The 18th was a very important day for the Man of Steel, Superman. For DC Comics released its #1000 issue, something no superhero comic had done before, and all the biggest and most loyal fans came out to celebrate him. From fans who have read and watched him for years, to the writers, directors, and movie stars that are a part of his legacy, all paid tribute to the man from Krypton. Including, one of the current live-action versions of Superman, Henry Cavill.
In a post on Instagram, Cavill wrote:
“For 80 years he has been saving our tails and indeed perhaps our souls. Inspiring us to be greater than we thought ourselves able. He’s certainly changed me, given me hope, allowed me space to push myself beyond the limits of my patience,”
He went on:
“Truly, what would a world be without Superman?He paved the way for all of our favourite heroes even if he’s not yours personally. A huuuuge thank you to the incredibly talented artists and writers over the years who have given us so much. Within us, Superman will now live no matter how old he gets. Happy Birthday my friend.”
It’s because of words like this that many want to see Cavill in Man of Steel 2.
