Added DiffLines:

* 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/CasinoRoyale''. Him finally getting the role of Superman was seen in the fan community as a ThrowTheDogABone moment.

* BadassBaritone: Henry's deep voice conveys how strong and determined his characters are, such as [[Film/ManOfSteel Superman]] and [[Film/{{Immortals}} Theseus]].
* DyeingForYourArt: Underwent a very intense workout regimen to look like Jim Lee's Superman in ''Film/ManOfSteel''. Inverted for ''Cold Light Of Day'' where he was asked to slim down his muscle quite a bit, which he admits he would never do again.
* FakeAmerican: In a handful of his works.
** Interestingly, he played a character who is himself a FakeAmerican in ''Film/ManOfSteel''.
** For bonus irony, he's this in the upcoming movie production of ''Film/TheManFromUNCLE2015'', while the ''actual'' American is a FakeRussian.

again.



* MrFanservice: See those works listed above? He's this in all of them. Loads of {{Shirtless Scene}}s.



* PromotedFanboy: Loves comic books even though he admits that he didn't get to read them much growing up and will now be playing Superman.
* RagingStiffie: During the filming of a sex scene in ''The Tudors,'' Henry got one of these. He defended himself by saying that the woman had a nice rack, and was pressed up against him the entire time.
* StarMakingRole: Playing as the iconic [[Film/ManOfSteel Superman]] really put him under everyone's spotlight.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** He was ''nearly'' cast as Superman a decade before in ''Film/SupermanReturns'', but lost the role to Creator/BrandonRouth. He was also one of the final two contenders for Film/JamesBond in ''Film/CasinoRoyale2006'', but was ultimately deemed too young for the role which was given to the other candidate, Creator/DanielCraig.
** ''Literature/HarryPotter'' fans campaigned for him to be cast as Cedric Diggory in ''Film/HarryPotterAndTheGobletOfFire'', but Creator/RobertPattinson landed the role instead. Years later, ''Film/{{Twilight}}'' was set to become a movie, and author Creator/StephenieMeyer expressly said she pictured Henry Cavill when writing Edward Cullen, but he wasn't cast, being considered too old, losing the role to...Robert Pattinson. Again.
** In fact, he was named the "Unluckiest Man in Hollywood" by ''Empire'' due to his long series of near-misses.
