If not for Zack Snyder, fans would have never watched Henry Cavill in the iconic red cape. He was the one who saw this immensely talented British superstar as the right fit for Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel. Although the audition did not go the way the actor wanted it to, the director showed confidence in his acting skills. In fact, he shared a beautiful ode of his performance and now fans are relating to it completely after Cavill’s exit.

A video of Henry Cavill’s interview with Josh Horowitz on the Happy Sad Confused podcast resurfaced on social media. The host revealed he reached out to Zack Snyder for his thoughts on the return of Superman. The filmmaker treated the 40-year-old to a video message from the set of Rebel Moon. In the video, he called Cavill the “greatest Superman ever” and that he was eager to work with him again.

In his response, the Enola Holmes star said, “he is a lovely man” and that he appreciates everything he has done for him. Fans loved how these two shared an amazing bond, but the duo could not work together since James Gunn benched a second Superman film. Not even two months had passed since the announcement of his return, and the new CEOs of DC Studios rebooted the universe.

Well, these are just some reactions from fans who loved Cavill from the bottom of their hearts. However, the Immortals star was not that satisfied with his acting in his debut Superman film Man of Steel. The actor once told THR that he had regretted some things in his role and wanted to change his smile in a scene with Martha Kent played by Diane Lane. But that is all in the past now and David Corenswet will take his place in the DC Universe as Superman.
