Superman, indeed! Henry Cavill showed off his chiseled arms and impressive six-pack abs in his first-ever shirtless Instagram post on Friday, February 5.

“Warm up phase for Superman training started today!” he captioned the shot, in which he looks like he’s mid-workout in nothing but a pair of gray sweatpants. “Posting this pic to set myself a minimum goal … and force myself to actually keep going haha! @gritandteeth.”

The 32-year-old actor is set to reprise his role as the iconic superhero in upcoming film Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, opposite Ben Affleck as the Dark Knight and newcomer Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman.

Cavill, who joined social media less than four months ago, has primarily posted promotional shots of himself on the set of films (he will also star in upcoming military film Sand Castle) and enjoying some new technology.

His fans quickly responded to his sexy post.

“I want him for my bday,” one user wrote.

“Oh. My. Gawd. I want to drink wine off that stomach,” another commenter chimed in.

“I saw it when he posted it but I didn’t like it because I felt like if some day by miracle we ever end up married it would be weird if I like a shirtless photo of him on his Instagram,” another enamored fan wrote to her friend. “So cliche u know.”

Cavill became a household name after his big-screen role as Clark Kent in 2013’s Man of Steel. He previously had several stints on television, most memorably opposite Jonathan Rhys Meyers on The Tudors, as well as smaller film roles on Immortals, Tristan + Isolde and Stardust.
