Aquaman has been getting some much needed glory for the DCEU providing a solid standalone flick that would undoubtedly serve as a turn point for the series. Although the film isn’t really seeing the acclaim the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been getting, the comic book world has expressed plenty of love for the Jason Momoa led film. With Marvel comics editor-in-chief praising the film, we see that their rivals are on board the Aqua-train themselves and it looks like a fellow DCEU boy may be feeling the same way too.
Henry Cavill who has played Superman in DCEU films Man of Steel, Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League has expressed some love for Aquaman in an Instagram post. While doing so, we see Cavill channeling Arthur Curry in a pretty funny way. Check out the post below:

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. @PrideOfGypsies @CreepyPuppet #Aquaman
This is actually pretty funny to be honest. Cavill’s future in the DCEU has been shrouded in mystery especially after he was reportedly out as the Man of Steel. However, that report was debunked by his manager not long after but Warner Bros. themselves didn’t really provide much clarification on that matter in their official statement. Momoa himself has said that Cavill is not gonna be leaving the role anytime soon but with little information on the matter from Warner Bros., it’s hard to really say. Cavill himself is probably busy with Netflix’s The Witcher series so he still has a job taking on the iconic Geralt of Rivia.
Whether or not we see Cavill return as the Man of Steel, we can at least appreciate Aquaman for providing a fun ride and possibly opening the doors to more opportunities for the DCEU.
