Those muscles, that light wave in his hair, those sparkling eyes, that chin—if there was ever an actor born to play Superman, it was Henry Cavill. But fans received a major shock this week when it was announced that Cavill would be hanging up the cape, stepping aside from the role so that Warner Bros. could take its DC Comics superhero characters in new directions. Shortly after the news broke, the actor shared an emotional response on Instagram, reminding fans that, although his turn to wear the cape has passed, “what Superman stands for never will.” Of course, fans are pretty upset about the decision, especially the gays who love an excuse to drool over Cavill on their screens. Fans have already started talking about casting Cavill as the next 007. The queer town will love it if this comes true.
