Henry Cavill's treasure hunt gives fans a 'Search For Hope'

We don't need to play superheroes to be superheroes.

Known best for playing Superman, "Man of Steel" and "Justice League" actor Henry Cavill conducted a Superman-themed scavenger hunt called "The Search For Hope" at a recent ACE Long Island convention which occurred from December 8th through the 10th.

For the contest, 30 original Superman sketches were hidden around the convention location for fans to find. Clues were posted on Cavill's official Instagram, which helped fans figure out the location for each sketch. Once found, 30 individuals had the one in a lifetime opportunity to attend a private Q&A with Cavill himself.

The art sketches weren't just any old Superman drawings, but in fact they were original pieces from iconic DC Comic artist Jim Lee, who did the art for works such as Uncanny X-Men, which remains to be the best-selling comic book at all time.

"The Search For Hope" was a contest to celebrate Superman and the hope he brings to others. When fans found one of Lee's drawings in the form of posters, they received a ticket to the Q&A and also a rare, limited edition Superman coin.

Cavill also joined his "Justice League" co-stars Gal Gadot, Ray Fischer, Ezra Miller and Jason Momoa for a "Justice League" panel at the convention. The film also stars Ben Affleck, Ciarán Hinds, J.K Simmons and Jeremy Irons, who recently visited BUILD Series to promote the film. You check out our interview with the actor in the video below.
