As we’ve seen countless times, sometimes the internet can say someone is dead – when they aren’t actually dead. Death hoaxes aren’t anything new, but this one involves someone very interesting. Superman. It’s interesting because Superman actually came back to life in Justice League, so for him to die again, would be devastating. In all seriousness, this doesn’t seem like a legitimate death hoax, and more along the lines of an error by Google, which said that Henry Cavill was dead:
It’s good to see the actor having fun with this one, as the same thing recently happened to Stephen King.
As for the future of Superman, we’re not sure when he will show up next. We all know what happened to his mouth in Justice League, but Cavill revealed he was actually a fan of Zack Snyder’s vision of the character – saying it was the true Superman:
“In my opinion this is the first time we see Superman in truth. We have seen the origin story of Superman. We have seen the downfall and doubt of Superman. And finally with this rebirth, we see the true Superman. The Superman who is confident and sure, and full of hope and joy.”
