Zack Snyder was the director on 2013’s Man of Steel, which was not only Henry Cavill’s first DCEU appearance as Superman, but also the DCEU’s first film. The success of that first movie helped kickstart the franchise with eight subsequent movies, two of them featuring Cavill as the last son of Krypton among the rest of the team.
