Henry Cavill has set aside his Superman cape to channel another DC superhero.
Having just watched “Aquaman” (and enjoyed it), the 35-year-old actor took to social media to post a hilarious tribute to his fellow “Justice League” colleague. He uploaded a shirtless picture of himself and tagged Jason Momoa as well as director James Wan.
“Channeling the man of the hour, the man of big hugs, big laughs and big pints of Guinness, my man Jason Momoa. How’d I do? Seriously though, I just finally got the chance to watch ‘Aquaman’ here in Hungary. Jason, James and everyone involved in that movie, smashes it out of the (water)park. If you haven’t seen it yet, go check it out.
Jason, love you bro, you crushed it,” the hunky Brit wrote.
For those that don’t know, Cavill is currently in Hungary filming for the Netflix adaptation of “The Witcher”. So what do y’all think of the actor’s Aquaman impression? Many fans were tickled at Cavill’s silly jab at the Atlantean King’s trident with a fork while showing off his underwater skills.
Take a look:
“Aquaman” has been smashing the box office around the globe, surpassing “Justice League” and even “Wonder Woman”. It’s currently the 2nd highest-grossing DC Extended Universe film, only behind “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice”.
For those curious, here’s how the “Aquaman” mid-credits scene sets up another sequel.
UPDATE (7th January):
It’s official! “Aquaman” has surged ahead to claim the title of highest grossing film in the modern DC Extended Universe slate. It has made US$940.7 million while No. 2 is “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” with US$873.6 million.
Leading actor Jason Momoa even posted an Instagram video to thank the fans who made this possible. Watch his speech below:
