Henry Cavill is not a fan of people arguing over his career, it seems! The Superman actor is asking fans to stop bickering amongst themselves and attacking others and themselves. Henry Cavill just wants fans to end the hostility!
Fans have had a lot to say about Cavill and his role as Superman over the last couple of years. Fights and speculation have run rampant, especially with the fact that there seems to be no Man Of Steel 2 in sight.
With the release of Zack Snyder’s Justice League, it has spawned a whole new wave of bickering and controversy. Cavill’s Superman was really well received in the new version of Justice League, and he has a lot of devout fans.
Fans are hungry for more appearances of Cavill as Superman, which has become even more apparent as of late. See, announcements were made on the actor’s birthday in regards to the reboot Superman film coming.
When it was announced on his birthday that they were looking for a black actor to play Superman Cavill fans were rather upset. They took to social media to show their support for Cavill, but some fans got a little overzealous.
Cavill has finally responded himself, discussing the whole thing with a post on his Instagram.
“Dear fans and followers, I wanted to make a wee community announcement. I couldn’t help but notice that there has been some social animosity of late. It’s becoming increasingly prevalent on my feed. There has been lots of, let’s call it speculation for now, about my private life and professional partnerships,” Cavill wrote.
Take a look below.
“Now, while I do appreciate the passion and support by those very people who are “speculating”, It has come to such a point that I needed to say something, which in itself, is a bad thing,” he continued. “We are living in an age of social enlightenment. More and more, people are realising that their views may have been blinkered and that they need to expand them to encompass others. So, to you out there who are expressing your disdain and showing your displeasure through a surprising variety of ways, it’s time to stop.”
“I know it can be fun to speculate, to gossip, and to dive into our own personal echo chambers on the internet, but your ‘passion’ is misplaced, and it causes harm to the people I care about most. Even your most conservative of negative assumptions about both my personal and professional life just aren’t true,” Cavill explained. “Let’s embrace this age of social enlightenment together, and move forward with positivity. I am very happy in love, and in life. I’d be enormously grateful if you were happy with me. If you can’t bring yourself to be happy with me, then at the very least try to do yourself proud and be the best version of yourself.”
Cavill has proven once again what an amazing human being he is. It’s time for fans to end the hostility.
