In 2013, the world first witnessed Henry Cavill as the symbol of strength, justice, and hope. It was evident in his broad shoulders and glistening blue eyes that he would take the role to new heights. Soon enough, Cavill took the world by storm as he continued to work in DC while also working alongside notable actors such as Tom Cruise. While he made his way to the mainstream area in 2013, Cavill has dedicated himself to acting since 2001. And to make the world a better place to exist in 1983.

The actor, despite a few turbulences in the past year, started this year on a blockbuster note. After losing two pivotal projects last year, the actor has signed his dream project, Warhammer 40K, among others. However, his performances are not the only thing that fans are hooked on. Therefore, as he turned 40 this year, fans left no stone unturned in expressing their love with Happy Birthday messages on Twitter.
