Today is Superman’s 80th birthday. He made his debut in Action Comics #1 on April 18, 1938. DC celebrated with the release of Action Comics #1000, and Superman himself Henry Cavill and Shazam star Zachary Levi are celebrating as well.
“Happy birthday, old man!,” Levi wrote on Instagram. “You don’t look a day past 75. Now stop running into my fist!”. He posted the photo below and tagged the DCEU’s Superman, Henry Cavill, in it as well.
This is just another example of the constant back and forth between Levi and Cavill. Superman is rumored to have a cameo in Shazam and at this point I think they’re practically confirming it for us!
Update: Cavill just posted a Superman post of his own.

For 80 years he has been saving our tails and indeed perhaps our souls. Inspiring us to be greater than we thought ourselves able. He's certainly changed me, given me hope, allowed me space to push myself beyond the limits of my patience. Truly, what would a world be without Superman? He paved the way for all of our favourite heroes even if he's not yours personally. A huuuuge thank you to the incredibly talented artists and writers over the years who have given us so much. Within us, Superman will now live no matter how old he gets. Happy Birthday my friend. Art credit: Eddie Liu #Superman #Superman80 #HappyBirthday #ActionComics1000 #DCComics
