Did Henry Cavill Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle?
The Internet is abuzz with this cute story of Henry Cavill going to school to help his nephew, Thomas, prove that Superman is his uncle.
Whether they are posted on Facebook, or in “viral websites”, the story generally goes along these lines, with a picture of Henry Cavill walking his nephew to school :
Henry Cavill Did Not Help Nephew Prove Superman Is His Uncle!
As endearing as this story is, it was really fabricated from an old but true story from 2011.
Many websites resurrected this story to “go viral” and make money. Here are the facts…
Fact #1 : Henry Cavill Talked About It In 2013 + 2018
Henry Cavill actually recounted this incident back in June 2013 in an interview with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show.
He also told Kelly and Ryan this same story on their show in July 2018.
So all those viral and celebrity websites that claimed that Henry Cavill confirmed this “in the last few hours” lied to you.
Fact #2 : Superman Uncle Incident Happened In 2011
This incident involving his nephew, Thomas, actually happened in 2011 when Henry first learned that he would be playing Superman in Zack Snyder’s film.
Henry Cavill only recounted it in 2013, when he sat for his interview with Jay Leno. This was what he said :
Fact #3 : Henry Cavill Did NOT Go To His Nephew’s School
Thomas’ mother – Henry’s sister-in-law – then explained to the teacher that the boy’s uncle “actually kind of is” Superman.
She did not ask Henry to “rescue” Thomas, so he did not actually go to his nephew’s school to prove that Superman is really his uncle.
Fact #4 : They Were NOT Walking To His Nephew’s School
The creator(s) misappropriated one of photos to make it look as if Henry Cavill was walking his nephew to school to prove that his uncle really is Superman.
The truth is this was one of the photos taken of Henry, who was walking in London with his brother Niki and his family on 7 September 2013.
They were NOT going to school to rescue Thomas, that’s for sure!
Fact #5 : Thomas Was Not 7 Years Old When It Happened
Henry Cavill did not mention how old Thomas was when this “Superman is my uncle” incident happened. But in a May 2021 interview with Viva Magazine, he said,
So we know that Thomas was 6 years old in 2013, and not 7 years old in 2021 as many viral websites and memes are claiming.
We also know that the incident happened sometime between 2011 and 2013. So Thomas was likely between 4 and 6 years old when it happened.
Little Thomas should be a strapping 14 year-old teenager in 2021!
