potuknight

It's a reference to "Man of Steel" intended as a pun, I think.


ManyAbility3323

I think that was the joke. Like man of steel. Steel the show.


fkhan21

You ruined the joke lol

StrangeDise

I'm guessing you are referencing that SNL skit from a couple weeks ago, but to everyone who didn't see it, you just look like a racist piece of shit.


Amai_M4sk

Yeah, I get the joke too, it’s unfortunate. Poor guy.


One_Bar4

He really got screwed over there. Then again he probably should've clarified that it's a reference to SNL. Poor guy.


luthorhuss

Imagine growing up and thinking “why didn’t I get my uncle’s genes?”


gazwel

I would imagine the kid would realise that if it's his Mothers Brother in law, then he is not blood related.


Lezonidas

But Henry might be his father's brother, therefore the brother in law of his mother. So they share some blood, I dont know for sure but I thing Henry Cavill was single when this story came out so it makes sense.


VonD0OM

The only way we can know for sure is a blood sample. So let’s get it done


tarek44k

I'll bring the tranquilizer. Should I shoot the kid or his uncle?


VonD0OM

Have you seen the size of his uncle? Definitely the kid


dimethylxanthine

He is not uncle Ben.


tarek44k

Hes uncle clark


crackwizardd

How does one get a blood sample from Superman?


LijnS

Or the husband of her sister....


infinitypools18

Bruhhhh he single


LijnS

Ah... I didn't know that.


GameOfThrowsnz

We're talking about the UK, no? They're probably related in one way or another.


BlurryLinesSoftEdges

Hahahahaha


tuna_tofu

Henry is the dad's brother. And there are FIVE of them, all pretty damn gorgeous. Henry, at 6'4 is the runt of the litter. One brother is a Royal Marine - the UK equivalent of Navy SEALS.


thisprettyplant

Swooning over here


GameOfThrowsnz

That's at least 10 butt cheeks! 12 if you count mine, and I do. 😘


GameOfThrowsnz

Cheeky.


luthorhuss

Yes, I understood that. What I’m saying is it’s one thing to think I wish I had Henry Cavill’s genes, but it’s gotta be weird to think of that and it’s your uncle.


BiggestNige

Imagine judging a 7 year old physique on his 38 year old, Hollywood action hero uncles physique.


I_love_the_Dodgers

Henry Cavill didn’t always look that hot. He was kinda scrawny when he first started out.


catblack8008

Imagine being superman


uRaWizardairy

I really like the look on the kids face. He's already thinking about his classmates and how stupid they've been


Rugby_Chick

Right? This is a kid on a mission


L3f7y04

"Listen here you little fuckers"


Slappy_Happy_Doo

Sheer determination. "Just you wait!!! Today is the day!!

I could not help but read that in George Costanza’s voice


LyftIsnotokayanymore

Same


koh_kun

It would be really funny if they go into the classroom but everyone is all sombre because a School staff or classmate passed away. The kid would be like, "Hey guys I brought Super..." "SHUT THE FUCK UP, CAN'T YOU SEE WE'RE MOURNING?!"


sunbaby444

well you're a little ball of sunshine aren't you?


koh_kun

I have been told my presence causes skin cancer :(


sunbaby444

ok this is gonna sound insane, but I'm going to the dermatologist to get screened for skin cancer literally later this afternoon lmaooooo. what are the odds e: appreciate the kind words guys :D


toastercrisis_35

ayo i know im not related to this conversation at all but i hope you dont end up having skin cancer my dude


koh_kun

Oh fuck I'm sorry. Now I feel like the idiot who brought in his famous uncle at an inappropriate time. Wishing you the best!


sunbaby444

it's ok man. idk I'm a nihilist so I'm just vibing lol. thanks for the kind words from u and others tho!


sunbaby444

no skin cancer guys💯😎


theyoleus

Uh, username checks out, I guess...


theyoleus

Seriously though, I hope things turn out well for you!


GoWashWiz78Champions

And the fact that he’s midway through opening a box of raisinets just adds to the “I can’t wait to see those losers faces” attitude


johnny_kobra

Unfortunately I fact checked this and it's a false story. Picture has nothing to do with it and Henry never went to the school. Kid was indeed telling his uncle is superman and his mother had to explain to the teacher that this time he wasn't really telling stories. The picture is taken on a day walk with the whole family. So the story isn't really true and the picture is taken out of context.


rainbowsrvisions

Thanks for the fact check. Crazy that someone actually complained.


thisprettyplant

This would have been one of those stories that hurts no one and could have been left alone without a fact check.


johnny_kobra

I tend to agree, but for whatever reason I prefer to know the truth, as there are a ton of real good stories out there, several shown here daily. I should've marked it with spoiler alert or something for those not wanting to know. I thought about it for a minute, and here's how I believe I feel the wat I do. Libraries have the decency to categorize fiction separately, and I like it that way. A lot of the bad things people are doing these days is because too many people believe anything they read, especially if it feeds into their narrative. We should be able to separate facts from fiction. And on that note, if you absolutely want to believe in the story, go ahead. I'm just a random stranger on the internet, I could have been lying. Just don't check it and you'll be okay. I think fact checking should be built into who we are as without it we're willing to believe anything that feels good to us. I know it's a stretch here to think this story would lead to something bad, but facts are facts, and we're not at a party, so I'm allowed to poop.


thisprettyplant

I agree with you completely. I think it was a matter of the library reference. Having things categorized into fiction and non fiction would absolutely be nice these days. Unfortunately it’s all mixed up together and it’s impossible to know without research. You’re right. It is definitely important to be naturally curious on the facts. Usually, I am. But in this case I was ok with sticking with that and not much else. But this is just one story of many that can absolutely turn into what we see today with people wanting to believe anything that they are happiest believing. So therefore, I take back my initial feeling of disappointment in your comment. I could double check if you were correct, but i won’t, and I will think of you when I see comments in the future who include what they are able to discover about a story, even if it’s intention is innocent. My personal feeling on one story isn’t justification for the truth not being known. It’s too broad of a spectrum to ever have that be the way of things. Thank you for your input on it.


johnny_kobra

Thank you for everything that you said. To give credit where credit is due, Bill Burr said on Conan something along the lines of "did you learn it in a library? If you didn't, I don't believe you. There they clearly separate fiction into their own category, everywhere else it's free for all." I'm paraphrasing of course, but that hit me. We dim the lines and we don't care about fact checking anymore. Well, many of us don't. That would be one way for things to get better. It's just as important when the "fact" feels good as it is when it feels bad. Thank you.


thisprettyplant

Love Bill Burr :) Just saw him at the laugh factory last week! Completely agree. Stay curious!


Nikkishaaa

Omg! I’m seeing bill burr this October at the laugh factory too! *Loved your guys’ above interaction btw, very wholesome, mademesmile :)


rainbowsrvisions

I really want to believe that people care about the truth more than this. Sure, it didn't do any harm, but why wouldn't you rather know the real story?


MayorOfMonkeyIsland

Cavill has the look of a man who knows some shit is about to go down.


volthunter

The worst part is that if you read the article it was the TEACHER that didn't believe him and started the other kids harassing him. The education system is a fucking joke

Or John Wick. Or Ip Man. I’m not even remotely Asian, but I’d totally bring Ip Man

And Donnie Yen in his "normal guy" clothes is fashionable and cool AF, and from some pics I've seen incredibly ripped.

To be fair your uncle doesn’t have to be the same race as you.

True. Uncle is couch. Am potato salad.

When Tom’s in high school abs gets dropped off by the Witcher he’ll be the man all over again.

My son IS gay and we have amicably divided the Hemsworths between us.

Chris Hemsworth is Thor; *he'd* be banging *you*.

Chris Evans the ginger radio presenter? 😉

Especially him.

You’re homophobic if you won’t be gay for those 3

Those are my three too, not so much Ryan reynolds. I mean don't get me wrong, he's awesome, but he's not Henry Cavill or Chris Evans awesome.

You don't have to be gay for them

Gay for superheroes, got it


Niharboii

Jacksepticeye??????? (personal opinion but also a genuine question)


dystopian_mermaid

First noticed him in Tudors. The scene with him and Henry VIII sister had me DROOLING lol. He is so beautiful it isn’t even fair to the rest of us mere mortals.


motherdragon02

Me too! Been following him ever since. Just ridiculously hot. Ridiculous.


dystopian_mermaid

Like inhumanly hot. I have a thing for the dark hair/light eyes combo and GODDAMM. He’s got it in spades.


TiffanyBee

Just look at his biceps trying to break free from his shirt! He’s an exquisite specimen who is a walking thirst trap.


celestiallion12

That kids face just says "Today those fuckers will learn"

Henry Cavill tells the story https://youtu.be/7N_eeUlmIoc

matt_firn

What we don't hear is how much he negotiated the price for this Witcher contract with his sister-in-law


Tamara0205

I had JUST gotten that song out of my head.... now it's back.


select20

Seemingly one of the coolest, most down to earth mainstream actors out there.


LoveOfProfit

And also one of the biggest targets for public sexual harassment. Interviews with him are often disgusting to listen to.


AmiablePenguin

100%. The way women audibly creep and perv over him is disgusting. There's nothing wrong with finding him handsome, but they clearly cross the line in so many ways that he can't hide his discomfort sometimes, and they still don't pick up on it and stop.


wut_the_Beep

100%. He is so genuine and kind


hrmonica

Henry is looking kinda excited to disprove those kids.


tiy24

He sees his nephews face and honestly who couldn’t giggle at the imminent mic drop this kid has clearly been planning.


GoldenGalore

Lil story: My friend went to the same gym in London as HC and had no clue who the guy was. He kept telling me there’s this super nice and super hot guy at my gym for like 6 months. They had lil chats, even were in the sauna room together at times. One day, me and my friend decided to have a Netflix binge night and started the witcher. 10 mins in he’s like « omg this dude looks exactly like the hot dude i keep telling u abt at the gym. What’s the actor’s name? i got to tell henry abt it »....and this is when i vowed, to drag my friend out of the rock, he’s been living under for the past 10 yrs.


Sunshine030209

Hahaha that's amazing! I'm so glad you shared this story! I kinda wish he hadn't realized right then and excitedly told him about the "guy that looks just like him in some Netflix show" I'd love to hear Henry's reaction.


Lui_Le_Diamond

This made me chuckle hahah


Rosetta_draws

The truest of hero's go out of their way to make people smile. ^ - ^


LynxRocket

I hope this guy is never ruined by some scandal or something. He seems like such a genuinely good person and I always enjoy his movies and shows.


ilovespaghettibolog

He likes young girls and dated a high schooler


nez91

If you’re referencing Tara King she was in college. Still kind of a weird age gap though


Long-Interview3086

Yeah, he dated a 19 year old when he was 33.


bagels_and_borscht

That is a weird age gap, true. But he’s dating a 31 year old woman now.


GlassHalfSmashed

So a) not high school (as the previous post to yours said) and b) legal in all respects I think the US has a big stick up its ass about some things because the legal age for sex is 18 and drinking is 21. UK / Jersey where Cavill and King grew up is 16 / 18 accordingly, so this was nowhere near as "close to the wind" as many ppl make out. Let adults be adults, they didn't hurt anybody and are both fairly young by most people's standards. I remember being in university at 18 and being shocked at 3rd years dating 1st years. As soon as you get out of the education system that silos people into year groups, nobody gives a shit unless its truly "I don't even need to ask to know you two are decades apart".


LynxRocket

RIP. I mean she was of age I know but it's always that kind of, "Yeah it's legal but why would you want to?" Type question. Looks like he bailed pretty quickly, guessing it was due to backlash from the internet or just not being able to get past the fact that she was so young. It'd become apparent pretty quickly that they're in two different stages of life.


nez91

I agree it’s odd but why the RIP?


IamADoor1012

Henry Cavil might of not of been the best Superman actor but he is definitely my favorite man who’s filled the role and one of my favorite actors in general. And hey, a good actor can only do so much with a BvS-tier script


IamADoor1012

and his performance as Geralt was awesome


Ohcrabballs

I actually liked BvS. I only watched the director cut version so I dont know what was shown in theaters, but I thought they set it up decently and I genuinely enjoyed Batfleck (although they tried to make him too much like Tony stark in justice league). Id agree that the ending was the weakest part of the movie though

I can hear it. See! I told you! But you didnt believe me. Now look at you all. Sittin there with that stupid look on your face, jaw on the floor. Kneel before me!


BillN9n

Cavill is next fucking level. Love to see such positive behavior. Even if it is family. If you have not yet check out his video on him building his new gaming PC. Dude is an epic gamer!


KIrkwillrule

The determination on this is face, he's about to go full Chris angel on some class mates


SkyShazad

THIS STORY IS FALSE he never took his Nephew to school, the Teacher asked the Boys mother that yiu son is telling everyone that superman is his uncle, and the mother said yes, This is some random pic of Henry taking his son out. There's mny videos on YouTube regarding this of Henry in interview explaining this story


Timely_Ad_8990

That kids face. He is like *those mf are gonna get it now*


shalodey

repost.

He then proceeded to beat the living shit out of those kids

To a child, Henry Cavil might as well be as strong as Superman in a 1 on 1 fight against them

Wasn’t this the ending to Shazam?


motherdragon02

I've seen this over and over...and it still makes me happy...


Previous-Wrongdoer39

For 7yr old that is the ultimate badass moment walking into school with Superman......... Now at 14 if he could get Wonder Woman that would top it.


ccknboltrtre01

I bet those moms had some cream running down their pants


thuynj19

What will the kids say when the Witcher shows up?


Blades_of_Grey

Bet his schoolmates will never fuck with that kid when he's got Superman and Geralt of Rivia on speed dial.

The look on his face 😂 “I got those fuckers now”


Believeinyourflyness

Hey that's not Superman, that's Clark Kent?!


RedJenny55

My friend in primary school had Chris Reeve as her godfather. He came over the Scotland for her eight birthday party and blew everyone’s mind. The best bit was when one of the other adults asked him how his flight had been and we all thought he had flow across the Atlantic without a plane 😂

But Cavill isn’t married?


tuna_tofu

Henry said on a talk show that the teacher called his sister in law and told her that her son was making up wild stories. Mom had to set her straight: "Well, actually...." Many of us may have thought our dad was Batman when we were little but none of us had Superman for an uncle. Sigh.


InfamouSamurai

henry cavill is so wholesome :)
