Jason Momoa Has The Perfect Response To Fan Who Didn’t Like Henry Cavill’s Superman

Henry Cavill Superman Jason Momoa AquamanBack in 2015, Aquaman star Jason Momoa revealed the perfect response to a fan who didn’t like Henry Cavill’s take on the character of Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel.

While Cavill was praised for his performance as the Last Son of Krypton amongst critics, a divisive reaction was seen amongst fans who didn’t respond to Snyder’s darker, brooding version of the character. The murder of Michael Shannon’s General Zod was also a major point of contention between fans.

Although Momoa didn’t make his debut as Aquaman until Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, the current King of Atlantis who is now dominating at the box office still proved he had the actor’s back at Puerto Rico Comic-Con when he called out a fan who didn’t like Cavill’s Superman. Check out what Momoa had to say in the video below!

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Aquaman is now playing. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DC cinematic universe as we learn it.

The Superhero Movies Of 2018, Ranked From Worst To Best

Previous1 of 10

Superhero Cinema 2018 Black Panther Avengers Thanos The Incredibles Aquaman2018 has gone by too fast. It seems like yesterday when the beginning of the new year was upon us, and the advent of having so many superhero movies hitting theaters seemed like a dream come true for every fanboy and fangirl. It’s also funny to look back and remember that although we ended up with a whopping nine major theatrical superhero movies, we almost had eleven. Sadly, Fox delayed both Dark Phoenix and The New Mutants to 2019 instead.

Even with those two films delayed, 2018 was still a massive year not just at the box office, but for the continued advancement of the genre on a number of levels. Whether it was through the cultural significance of a film like Black Panther or the exciting animated adventures of Incredibles 2 and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, there was no shortage of exciting superhero stories told on the big screen this year.

Here are the theatrical superhero films of 2018, ranked from worst to best. You can start the gallery by clicking “Next.”

    Aquaman’s a hit, making stupid money and surviving the usual unanimous curb stomping from the critics, thankfully. DC/WB needs to take this success story back to the lab and really understand why Aquaman worked out as well as it did and apply those lessons to future films. I would absolutely love to see a Superman movie on the same visual level, while taking as much advantage of the comic lore and supporting cast like Aquaman did. This one had a clear focus on keeping the crowd entertained, remaining tonally fun and having faith in the more comic book elements ( the lore, costuming and villains were almost 100% perfectly adapted from page to screen, with almost no concern of not being grounded or “cool”). Cavill’s Superman would thrive and likely get the same if not better results like with Aquaman.

  • Craig Smith

    Henry Cavill is a perfect Superman. He looks the part, is not a campy joke of an actor. His darker take is more believable and truer to the character. I would rank him as top 2 or three to ever portray the character. Brandon Routh and Dean Caine have to be the worst. Henry, George Reeves, and Christopher Reeves are the best. I just do not get the hate on Henry at all.

    • I always question why people didn’t like Brandon Routh. His mannerisms and behaviors were EXACTLY Christopher Reeves. That was my only criticism of him, is that he was too much like Christopher and I hoped for someone better.

      • SatinTheAntiFabric

        I thought Brandon Routh did an excellent job as Clark Kent but way just okay as Superman. However, you’re right. He played it like Christopher Reed. Henry Cavill is the best Superman…okay Clark Kent. He’s certainly the best looking with the best physic of all the Supes.

    • Matthew Black

      Chris’s name was Reeve with no s – NOT Reeves or Reed! After 40 years some people still can’t get that right?! And Henry Cavill made a good Kal-El. Anybody who says he wasn’t is simply wrong – that fact transcends opinion. The opinions on script and style of direction discussions are certainly negotiable

  • chaburchak

    Cavill looks the part and could have been a great lighthearted Superman in the Donner mold, if he’d just been given the material. Not his fault they tried to out-angst Batman…

  • Waeddryn

    Haters gonna hate. Look at how crazy pissed everybody was about Affleck being Batman, and I don’t care what anybody says, he crushed it. He’s exactly right for THAT version of Batman. And Cavill is exactly right for the version of Supes we’re seeing. He’s not the super cheery god of boy scouts that past Supes versions were. If anything he’s closer along the lines of the Supes from the New 52, which frankly makes him a deeper character than “I’m the best good guy ever, and I can vaporize everybody but I’m here for Justice and always look both ways crossing the street!”.

    Also, about Brandon Routh…he didn’t fail at Superman, the script for his movie failed at Superman. Seriously he comes back as a delinquent no-show father who’s letting some other guy foot the bill for his illegitimate son….he’s what I refer to as “Scumbag Supes”…but that’s not on Brandon Routh in any way…..

    Sorry ,Henry Cavill was good, but no one can replace Christopher Reeve because he’s the original big screen SM, and the best.
