Henry Cavill Building a Gaming PC is the Internet Content We Need Right Now

Feast your eyes on The Witcher and DCEU's Henry Cavill as he plays with a lot of parts...PC gaming parts, I mean.

When he isn’t out hunting monsters for coin, donning a CGIed face in a superhero movie, or fighting Tom Cruise, actor Henry Cavill has been known as quite the prolific gamer. While most well-known for his roles in films such as Man of Steel and Mission Impossible: Fallout, alongside his star turn as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s The Witcher series, Cavill has always been a lover of video games at heart, including playing The Witcher 3 multiple times and running raids in World of Warcraft. However, now you can get a first-hand look at Cavill’s gaming prowess as he puts together a PC gaming rig. Warning: you might get sweaty watching.

Over on his official Instagram page, Henry Cavill shared a 5 and a half minute long video of him building a brand new gaming PC, which is impressively edited to show off the high stakes and thrills of putting together a new rig. Suffice it to say, building a PC has never looked sexier than in Henry Cavill’s hands, and you can watch the full video for yourself below:

Aside from watching the Man of Steel himself handling all sorts of PC parts, one of the most interesting parts of watching Cavill’s PC building supercut is the fact that even Henry Cavill isn’t spared from the mistakes and anxiety that come from putting together a new rig. That said, overall it seems like Cavill has an impressive new gaming PC on his hands, and frankly, we could all benefit from watching him put together a complicated piece of machinery. I vote for him putting together a washing machine next.

In terms of what’s next for the PC gamer-turned-actor, Henry Cavill will return for the second season of The Witcher on Netflix, which is set to resume filming next month after a production delay due to the coronavirus pandemic. He will also appear in the upcoming British mystery film Enola Holmes that is set to debut on Netflix in September, and will also be seen in the anticipated “Snyder Cut” of Justice League, which will premiere on HBO Max in 2021.
