Explore our collection of Henry Cavill’s classic hairstyles over the years. Witness how the hunk actor played with cool yet classy styles that are perfectly complemented with his beard.
The ever famous Superman of DC Extended Universe has come to life through the superb portrayal of British actor Henry William Dalgliesh Cavill. With his classic Hollywood look, broad shoulders and his fabulous wavy dark hair, he was definitely perfect for the role.
Henry Cavill began his career in the films “Laguna” (2001) and Kevin Reynold’s adaptation of “The Count of Monte Cristo” (2002). He is best remembered in the movies “The Man from U.N.C.L.E.” (2015) where he played the role of an American super spy Napoleon Solo sporting a slicked back coif, “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” (2018) playing the role of a slick villain August Walker with short swept-back hairstyle plus a badass mustache and his Superman roles with various cool hairstyles in “Man of Steel” (2013), “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (2016), and “Justice League” (2017).
The renowned star has also been considered and auditioned for significant roles which he unfortunately missed. One role that he auditioned for was the ill-fated wizard Cedric Diggory in “Harry Potter and The Goble of Fire”. Sadly, Robert Pattinson got the role and this is not the first time these two went head-to-head. The author Stephenie Meyer considered Cavill to play the sparkly heartthrob vampire in her movie “Twilight” but when shooting has begun, he was already too old to play a high school guy. Again, Pattinson got the part. He was also screen-tested for James Bond’s role in “Casino Royale” but he lost to Daniel Craig as he was deemed too young for the role. It was kinda disappointing as he turned down a role in “300” for this.
Those struggles have been one of the British actor’s inspirations to develop and improve. With Superman’s success, he clearly proved that he can do better. Today, he can be seen with a drastic new look rocking a flowing long white hair as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s “The Witcher”. It was actually a wig that the Witcher team has spent months perfecting it. Now it can be seen with a more silver hue. So much more for his wig, let’s now recall the action star’s remarkable hairstyles over the years.
