Hello, Captain Syverson!

After keeping us on pins and needles for close to a month, Henry has finally made an appearance on the Sand Castle set in Jordan (next to director Fernando Coimbra). And we couldn't have asked for a better shot -- Check out the camo shorts and that flashy gun!

Henry is apparently working with Aika, a German Shepherd who we're guessing plays one of the dogs used by the U.S. military to help them avoid improvised explosive devices or IEDs.

In the film Henry plays a Special Forces Captain stationed in Baqubah, where Nicholas Hoult's character (Matt Ocre) is sent with his unit to repair a broken water system.  

Sand Castle is set during the U.S.-led occupation of Iraq in 2003, and is based on screenwriter Chris Roessner's experience as a machine gunner during that time.

We've been keeping up with the rest of the cast since filming began November 1st, and a few days ago Coimbra shared some new photos from the set.

Filming is set to wrap in early January, look for updates from Jordan as they come in.

Stay safe, Henry.

P.S. We apparently missed that Henry is wearing a Punisher t-shirt and a fan let us have it on Instagram. Marvel fans can be so touchy.. :p

In any case The Punisher is known as an anti-hero, so does the shirt have any sort of meaning or is it just a badass style choice for Captain Syverson? (Time did a really good piece on the history of the character's logo and how it's been used in Iraq). We can't wait to learn more about Henry's role in Sand Castle!

UPDATE: The dog training business has shared a second photo of Henry & his costar Aika.

Here's Aika again with @henrycavill at the #sandcastle movie set #caninersdogtraining #jo #jordandog #instadogs #beautifuldogs #DDR #cute #dreamdogs #doggies #black #tan #color #mydog #dogtraining #allaboutdogs #germanshepherd #workingdog #workline #showdog #showline #GSD #dog #doglovers #puppies #puppy #pyppytraining #training #puppylovers
