Leave it to Entertainment Weekly writer Mandi Bierly, to remind us of a HUGE day for Supes. Five years ago today Henry officially became the Man of Steel, with director Zack Snyder calling him "the perfect choice to don the cape and S shield."
And how lucky are we, to have a guy in the role who can't be prouder of being able to portray the iconic superhero.

EW's reminder of the milestone, has turned into a lovefest for Henry on social media.
"sherbertdowneyjr: I still have that EW and it's framed on my wall. That was the moment I became a Superman fan. So happy we have Henry in the role."
