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."

9. Venom Venom Tom Hardy Eddie Brock Marvel Sony

Yeah, Venom is an interesting film to say the least. Many have doubted Sony and their plans to create their own universe centered on Spider-Man villains that is said to be "adjacent" to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, especially after what happened with their proposed plans for a shared universe set within the canon of Marc Webb's The Amazing Spider-Man films.

What director Ruben Fleischer brought to audiences is this bizarre, clunky, yet surprisingly entertaining throwback to the early 2000s era of superhero cinema. It has major narrative and technical flaws that keep it from being legitimately a "good" film beyond some moments of ironic brilliance, but Tom Hardy's performance is one of the most entertaining comic book movie performances put on screen in a long time.

8. Ant-Man and the WaspAnt-Man and the Wasp Avengers 4 Marvel

It's pretty hard to follow in the footsteps of such a massive crossover event like Avengers: Infinity War, but the microscopic (yes, pun intended) scale of Ant-Man and the Wasp is a nice lighthearted cleanser after witnessing Thanos' decimation. It falls short of its 2015 predecessor, but director Peyton Reed still brings in some entertaining sequences that are a nice blend of action and comedy.

Both Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly have great chemistry, and the entire climactic chase sequence is pure delight.

7. Deadpool 2Deadpool 2 X-Force Fox

2016's Deadpool was the surprise hit of that year. While many hardcore comic book fans were excited to finally see a proper iteration of the Merc with a Mouth, the industry was particularly surprised by how mainstream audiences embraced Ryan Reynolds as the beloved antihero of the Marvel Universe.

Deadpool 2 continues that trend of self-aware comedy mixed in with the badass action directed by David Leitch. Unfortunately, the film falls into some of the trappings of a "more of the same" type of sequel, but put on a bigger scale. The film certainly could've benefited from a more clever script beyond just making everything bigger than the first. While the film never recaptures that lightning-in-a-bottle that the first film had, it still holds its own with some great character moments and perhaps the best mid-credits scene of all-time.

Plus, the additions of Cable (Josh Brolin) and Domino (Zazie Beetz) add more to the irresistible tone that Deadpool brings to the big screen. Overall, a decent sequel.

6. Teen Titans GO! To the Movies

Teen Titans GO! To The Movies

It's kind of funny that Teen Titans GO! To The Movies is as entertaining as it is. Sure, the film is still targeted towards younger children that tune into the series on Cartoon Network, but the film is a surprisingly clever send-up of both the superhero movie genre as well as a hilarious tribute to the lore of DC Comics seen through the eyes of the Teen Titans themselves.

Also, the fact that the film ends with a stinger that teases the possible return of the original Teen Titans series justifies its existence in more ways than one.

5. Aquaman Aquaman

Aquaman is a much-needed win for the DC Extended Universe. The franchise received its biggest win in 2017 with Wonder Woman but unfortunately hit a massive roadblock with the disappointing Justice League. As it turns out, all the DCEU needed to do to get back in the right direction was to add water and filmmaker James Wan into the mix.

Wan really goes all out with this film. This is a visually stunning adventure film on both land and sea that really leans into the inherently cheesy nature of the character while simultaneously turning Aquaman into perhaps the most badass superhero in the DCEU thus far.

Some may be turned off by how campy Aquaman can get at points, but it's hard not to get swept up into the fun when you have Jason Momoa having the time of his life.

4. Incredibles 2incredibles-2-pixar-disney

It has been 14 years since we were last acquainted with the Incredibles. Thankfully, they haven't missed a beat even after that long, long wait for the most-requested Pixar sequel of all-time.

It's great to see Brad Bird bounce back with this exciting sequel after the earnest, yet disappointing mess that was Tomorrowland. Here, Bird is back on his element as a brilliant storyteller and is adept at further developing these characters.

Seeing the entire family in these hilarious and death-defying circumstances is so enthralling, particularly in the film's climax. Also, everything involving Jack-Jack and Edna Mode are some of the funniest sequences of animation that Pixar has ever done.

3. Avengers: Infinity WarAvengers Infinity War Thanos Marvel Studios

What else is there that needs to be said about this 2018 film? It really is the most ambitious crossover event in cinematic history, and it has sparked an entire year-long conversation about what our surviving heroes will be doing next after all the chaos.

Anthony and Joe Russo accomplished the near-impossible task of balancing out dozens of larger-than-life characters in this kaleidoscope of comic book beauty that leads to some of the most epic battles ever brought to the big screen.

Also, with Avengers: Endgame on the horizon, it's going to be interesting if that film has a moment that tops the pure awesomeness that is the scene in which Thor (Chris Hemsworth), Groot (Vin Diesel) and Rocket (Bradley Cooper) arrive on the battlefield in Wakanda.

2. Spider-Man: Into the Spider-VerseSpider-Man Into the Spider-Verse

Who would've thought that an animated Spider-Man movie that features Spider-Noir and Spider-Ham on the big screen would be the best film centered on the webhead since Sam Raimi's Spider-Man 2?

Leave it to the minds of Phil Lord and Chris Miller along with the incredible creative team to bring us a true love letter to the character that would make Stan Lee and Steve Ditko proud. Yes, Peter Parker will always be our original Spidey, but this film proves that the best part about being Spider-Man is the fact that he/she can come from anywhere despite their personal background and circumstances.

1. Black PantherBlack Panther Marvel Disney Ryan Coogler

As big as Avengers: Infinity War was, it's harder to find a 2018 movie that has had as big of an impact on the popular culture than Black Panther. But beyond the cultural significance that comes with such a film, Ryan Coogler crafted a powerful, touching story about legacy, family, principles, power and purpose.

It's hard to log onto the internet sometimes because the world is in such a chaotic place. But Black Panther represents the power of storytelling and why seeing more diverse characters and stories on the big screen matters.

Films like Black Panther remind us about the power of cinema. It can unite audiences together despite their differences and can also inspire us to be better people. All those reasons and more are why Black Panther is the best superhero film of 2018.

    LOL

    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…..

  • Karen Vondermehden

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