Henry Cavill has proven, many times over, that he embodies all of the characteristics that make him the perfect Superman, inside and out. Now, the actor once again shows how much of a class act he is by using his Instagram account to congratulate fellow DC Extended Universe star Jason Momoa and director James Wan for the massive success of Aquaman.
On his Instagram, Cavill posted a humorous picture of himself half-underwater, holding a fork that is meant to echo Arthur Curry's trident.
"Channeling the man of the hour, the man of big hugs, big laughs and big pints of Guinness, my man Jason Momoa. How'd I do?" Cavill wrote in the caption accompanying the photo. "Seriously though, I just finally got the chance to watch Aquaman here in Hungary. Jason, James and everyone involved in that movie, smashes it out of the (water)park. If you haven't seen it yet, go check it out. Jason, love you bro, you crushed it."

Henry Cavill and Jason Momoa first shared the screen in 2017's Justice League, the film that finally united the biggest superheroes of the DCEU. While the two characters didn't actually share a lot of screen time in the finished product, it speaks to Cavill's character that he took time out of his busy schedule (the actor is currently filming Netflix's live-action adaptation of The Witcher in Hungary) to not only watch Aquaman, but congratulate his extended DC family on social media.
In 2018, rumors began circulating that Henry Cavill was actually done with the role of Superman and that he was walking away from the DCEU. However, an official announcement was never made, a fact that Momoa himself put to rest recently when he said, during a red carpet interview for Aquaman, that he had recently spoken to Cavill and that "he's absolutely not [leaving the role]. He loves the character. He's not. 100 percent. It's absolutely [not happening]."
With his continued support of the DCEU and Aquaman, one can easily believe that Cavill will don the red cape again. Hopefully, it will be to share the screen with Aquaman once more.
Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Amber Heard as Mera, Patrick Wilson as Ocean Master, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Temuera Morrison as Thomas Curry, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus and Nicole Kidman as Queen Atlanna. Aquaman is currently playing in theaters worldwide.
