It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a curse? Doing something great often comes with a heavy burden, because when you’re seen as divine, people expect miracles all the time. Just like the actors who have played Jesus on TV or film, the people who brought Superman to life have often been plagued with terrible misfortune.
Henry Cavill, the latest to portray the Man of Steel on film, recently tore his left hamstring during a shooting of the Witcher and posted a graphic x-ray of his thighs and booty to the thrill of his fans on social media.
But more bafflingly is his latest cry for help when he shared a photo of his girlfriend Natalie Viscuso, saying that people’s “harmful speculations” about his “private life” just aren’t true. Great Caesar’s ghost! What in pink kryptonite is he talking about?
Unlike Ben Affleck, Chris Evans or Hugh Jackman, who seem to enjoy the speculation that they are gay or bi, Henry Cavill is taking a more regressive approach by declaring that the rumors, whatever they may be, are “causing harm” to the people he cares about most: himself.
Today we’re taking a look at the Superman and the Jesus curse: the misfortune that follows actors who bring these “perfect” god-like figures to life for entertainment.
