Henry Cavill captured the image, strength, humility, and spirit of Superman - and of Clark Kent the man - in a way few other actors have before.  Not since Christopher Reeves' original run that captured our imaginations, or Tom Welling's earnest and boyish portrayal in Smallville, have we seen a Superman that is both a stoic masculine figure, as well as a humble, idealistic, even at-times naive guy from Kanas just trying to do the right thing.

Cavill's portrayal of the character is incredibly powerful, not just because it resonates with an audience that is desperately searching for something to believe in within a world wracked by disasters, political strife, and social calamities - but because it is a spiritual representation of what we all desire for our lives and our loved ones.  Henry Cavill is not just Superman on the big screen, he's Superman in real life.  He is a kind, charismatic, warm, and openly fanboying actor that has given everything he has and everything he is to not just play the Ultimate Superhero; but to help us believe he is Superman.

Henry Cavill was given a single chance to shine properly in Man of Steel, which was a dark, gritty origin story.  He has never been given a chance to shine as a fully, totally, and completely realised Superman.  Not only does Henry Cavill deserve this chance, not only is it imperative for the DCEU and greater franchise that he be given the chance to redeem himself, but we the fans - we the people! - deserve the chance to see our Man of Steel fly again.  We deserve the chance to see him don the Blue and Red, and take to the skies in a Superman film that is not bogged down by the nitty-gritty nature of Batman v Superman, or the horrifically small screen time and limited-by-world-building nature of Justice League.

If Warner Brothers and DC Entertainment understand the desires of their target audience and their consumers, they will understand that Henry Cavill is the Superman that we have wanted.  That we have shouted for.  That we have demanded.  Henry Cavill's brief appearance in Justice League was the highlight of the entire movie.  I challenge you to find a majority of fans who did not feel giddy excitement when he first appeared to challenge Steppenwolf, or didn't feel their hearts soar when he released the "Is this guy still bothering you?" or "I take it back, I want to die!" quips in very proper Clark Kent fashion.

The success of Aquaman was rooted as much in Jason Momoa's phenomenal portrayal, and Director James Wan's groundbreaking vision, as it was in the tone of the film.  It was outrageous, colourful, lively, and it made us laugh!  Give us a Superman movie in the same vein as Aquaman, and we'll see new Box Office records set in a way that nobody ever believed possible.  Recreate the magic of a hopeful, bright, fundamentally heroic universe and give Superman - the iconic Superhero! - the chance to shine in that setting.

We've had dark.  We've had gritty.  We've had grim and severe.  Now let's have Hope!  Let's have blue skies, and blue tights, and the Man of Steel of our generation.  Let's see Superman smiling, laughing, and joking as we know and love him to do even in the face of colossal adversity.  Let's have the Daily Planet, Smallville, and Clark Kent, and a proper movie - a day, a weekend, a week - in the life of Superman.  Give us the House of El, the last son of Krypton, Kara Zor-El, or Brainiac: Give us spectacle, and laughter, and inspiration, and joy.

But most of all, I implore you to give us what we NEED: Henry Cavill as Superman!
