Everyone laughed a lot and Cavill said, “Yeah, absolutely, I’ll get that later and I was playing it was an important part of a particular dungeon that I was going through. Then he proudly said, “and it’s cool now that I’m Superman. Then I looked across at the last moment. I saw Zack Snyder’s name on the phone. So, I grabbed the phone and then missed it. So, I called him back immediately.”

Henry is the king of humor, and said, “I’m really sorry I was saving someone’s life. I missed your call. And then he gave me the news.”

O’Brien mentioned his character of Superman who saves lives and protects people as a savior and said, “which is what you do all the time.”
