henry cavill He is one of the most popular actors today with a professional career that is on the rise and the recognition of the industry, giving him transcendental roles in which the British can shine more and more. However, there are two roles that attract all eyes within his filmography: Superman Y Sherlock Holmes.

The Superman of henry cavill is a character who in his first appearance in Man of Steel he is searching for his true destiny. He is not sure about revealing himself to the world and doesn’t know his Kryptonian roots and when he does he finally accepts his powers and explores them without limitations as we can see in the sequence where he flies for the first time. Many criticized this version of the hero for not being “happy” like the Christopher Reevebut they did not understand that Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill they were going to develop it in several films.

Subsequently Superman faced Batman in a dark movie where the Kryptonian questioned the Bat of Gotham’s cruel and violent methods until Bruce Wayne, once he defeated Clark Kent, saw the human side of his “enemy” and they, along with Wonder Woman, had to fight against Doomsday, a creature that was created by Lex Luthor. So the character played by henry cavill he sacrifices himself to defeat the monster.

The third film in which he appears Superman is in Justice League where the team of heroes led by Batman revives him to face Steppenwolf. Initially the Kryptonian confronts Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Flash, Cyborg and Batman, but later gains consciousness of him again and helps them eliminate the threat of Apokolips, at least for a while. The last speech of henry cavill in the DC Extended Universe is a cameo in a post credits scene from Black Adam.

On the other hand, the Sherlock Holmes of henry cavill certainly is a character with enough “pride” although he is still brilliant in terms of his deductions, something that has always characterized this detective throughout his history, but it is interesting to see how the British actor addresses this aspect. Her relationship with Enola, her sister, has an interesting back and forth where he wants to take care of her but she is determined to constantly prove her worth. Sherlock offered Enola a job but she decided to go her own way.

Certainly both characterizations that he makes henry cavill of Superman Y Sherlock Holmes they live up to the legacies that these iconic roles maintain throughout history. But if we have to choose one of the two, we stay with Supermanbecause it had a deeper development than the detective and henry cavill seems to have been born to play Clark Kent. He physically embodies him perfectly and also brings an intensity to the character that makes him the best. Superman of the cinema
