Superman actor Henry Cavill took to Instagram to celebrate the Big Blue Boy Scout’s eightieth birthday.
Using a photo of an elderly Kal-El as a backdrop to his post, Henry Cavill noted that he’s always been inspired by the character and is optimistic that he’ll get to live on for years to come as a new generation of storytellers advance the myth of the original superhero.

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. 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. Art credit: Eddie Liu #Superman #Superman80 #HappyBirthday #ActionComics1000 #DCComics
So with that in mind, one question remains… When will Warner Bros. come out and announce another Superman movie? Hopefully, we’ll get an answer soon!
