First, Henry Cavill impressed fans as Superman in Man of Steel. Then, he won legions of gamers' hearts with his portrayal of Geralt in The Witcher. Now, Cavill's coming for Arthur Conan Doyle admirers with his version of Sherlock Holmes.

The actor portrays the iconic detective in Netflix's Enola Holmes, which centres on Millie Bobby Brown's eponymous character. And while Brown has certainly proven she's more capable than just Stranger Things would have you believe, it's Cavill's Sherlock that has Twitter swooning.

"I'd like to start a religion based on Henry Cavill as Sherlock Holmes," writes one person on social media. "Will I ever shut up about Henry Cavill as Sherlock in Enola Holmes? No, I don't think so..." write another.
