He is known mainly for his roles in ''Series/TheTudors'', ''Film/{{Immortals}}'', and for being the latest movie incarnation of Franchise/{{Superman}}, in the ''Film/DCExtendedUniverse''.

Added DiffLines:

* DyeingForYourArt:
** Inverted for ''The Cold Light Of Day'' where he was asked to slim down his muscle quite a bit, which he admits he would never do again.
** Played straight with ''Film/ManOfSteel'' because, [[HeroicBuild well]], ''[[{{Superman}} duh]].''
* FakeAmerican: Has been cast in an increasing number of American roles.
* FanCommunityNickname: His fans have gotten the name "The Cavillry."
* FunnyCharacterBoringActor: Inverted. While he plays an intense Superman, Henry Cavill is easygoing and even playful.


Added DiffLines:

* MemeAcknowledgement: Cavill's having a lot of fun with the trouble his [[BadassMustache mustache]] brought to ''Film/JusticeLeague''.
* OneOfUs:
** In addition to being a big comic book fan, he also loves ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' to the point that he nearly missed out on the call offering him ''Film/ManOfSteel'' because he was playing it at the time. He also mentions playing ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'', ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' and ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim''. His favorite game is ''VideoGame/{{Borderlands 2}}''.
** [[http://dgaider.tumblr.com/post/55213524262/genevrael-he-likes-nothing-better-he-says In his personal blog]], [[Creator/BioWare Dragon Age lead writer David Gaider]] claimed that, had he known Cavill liked ''Dragon Age'' and ''Mass Effect'' back when he was on ''Series/TheTudors'', he would have lobbied hard to have him do some voice acting in one of their games. [[WhatCouldHaveBeen Alas, now that he's Superman, Gaider laments that he's out of their price range]].
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: He became rather famous for being among the top three contenders for certain major roles, including Superman in a movie in development in 2003 (that eventually became ''Film/SupermanReturns'' with Creator/BrandonRouth), Cedric Diggory in ''Film/HarryPotter'', Edward in ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' and even Franchise/JamesBond in ''Film/{{Casino Royale|2006}}''. Him finally getting the role of Superman was seen in the fan community as a ThrowTheDogABone moment.
