The Man of Steel is showing he can be a hero in real life too!
Henry Cavill visited the Edwards Air Force Base to visit modern day heroes while taking a break from the Superman set on January 31st.
Over 100 Airmen came to get autographs and have photogs snap pictures of them with Cavill.
The Englishman said the following on his visit:
I have such great respect for military members and what they do. It's important that they know how valuable their service is. It is a pleasure to tell them how much they're appreciated.
The Man of Steel is filming on base and Airmen were extras and provided logistical support.
We can't wait to see this flick! Henry's gratitude makes want to see it more!
