September 22, 2016: Henry Cavill Dresses as Superman for Make-A-Wish Foundation

Henry Cavill has made a sick kid’s dream come true, sharing a photo on both his Facebook and Instagram accounts showing him dressed up in his Superman costume alongside Orin and his sister Summer, posing in front of cardboard cutouts of the Justice League.

The Make-A-Wisk UK also posted the same photo on their Twitter account:

Whatever problems the films might have, Henry Cavill was still a good choice. He respects the role and what it means. He seems to have a lot of qualities we’d naturally associate with our hero so why not let that shine through on screen?

Regardless I’m very happy for Orin and his sister and I have a lot of respect for the work of the Make A Wish Foundation.

Exactly. Henry naturally embodies Superman in a good number of ways. And, for me anyway, it’s telling how much better he looks standing there than his standee does behind him. Nicely done, Henry!

No matter what anyone say about Henry, he’s truly a Superman, always being there for the kids. Awesome story. :)

I think this is a simply wonderful and heartwarming photograph. People seem to take their lives for granted and sometimes forget about the little heroes out there who are suffering. The bravery of those kids is unbelievable. The photo also shows the great need for Super Heroes like Superman to look up to. Henry Cavill is not only a terrific Superman, but appears to be a fantastic individual, who exemplifies the meaning of The Man of Steel. His appearance with the charity will be a perfect inducement to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Class act!

The boys name is Orin?… Aquamnan will be proud. It’s the equivalent of having your name as Kalel!

I applaud your dedication and charity for making kids smile Mr. Cavill. You truly are a class act, a gentleman and a real life Superman.

Can I just say how awesome it is to see Superman smile?!

(oh and great on Henry to do this. And agreed, despite flaws of the movies, Henry was a solid casting choice.)

I love Henry Cavill. This is so nice to see that he did this for the kids. I can’t wait to see more of Cavill as Superman in more films in the DC Cinematic Universe.
