Henry Cavill revealed Superman’s age in Man of Steel during one of his billion press junket interviews, and he made it known that Supes is 33, which is the same age as another well known historical figure. By no means am I saying that Jesus was a superhero, he could be to some people, but more importantly he’s known as a historical figure who dedicated his life to saving those in need. There’s definitely something to be said about the parallels between this real life hero, and a made up one like Superman.
Let’s face it, Superman is a fantasy version of a world savior, so it’s curious that Zack Snyder made a point to let Cavill know that Superman will be 33 in the film. This could mean absolutely nothing, but it’s always fun to speculate on conspiracy theories. Regardless of your opinion on the matter you should still check out the 8-minute Cavill interview after the break.
