It comes as no surprise that the post was flooded with comments and most commenters were pleased to learn his reported demise was indeed inaccurate. One fan wrote,  “Hahaha. Looking good, considering…” whereas another commented, “Superman lives!”

Henry isn’t the first celebrity to fall victim to a death hoax by fake internet reporting. Just a month ago, actor Sylvester Stallone had to face a similar situation by sharing posts on his social media to deny the rumours.

It's not uncommon for cases like this to arise but we can imagine how morbid it is to find out about your own death. Nonetheless, it's nice to see the Superman vs Batman actor taking the news  of his 'death' like a good sport.
