The couple was spotted out and about in New York City on Sunday, April 14. Viscuso wore a fitted black dress and coordinating boots while holding hands with her beau, who wore a blue jacket over a tan-colored tee and blue trousers, as well as black shoes.

In January, Cavill and his girlfriend of more than two years stepped out at the London premiere of the actor's movie Argylle. The star wore a dark blue suit with black buttons and black shoes for the occasion, while Viscuso opted for a floor-length white gown and matching shoes. She also wore an equally long white-and-gold coat with horizontal stripes over the dress.

Cavill and Viscuso went Instagram official in April 2021 when they each shared a photo of themselves playing chess together to their respective profiles.

"This is me looking quietly confident shortly before my beautiful and brilliant love Natalie, destroys me at chess," Cavill wrote in a caption to his post at the time. Viscuso teased her boyfriend in her own caption, saying that she was "teaching my dear Henry how to play some chess...or...maybe he let me win?"

The two then made their red-carpet debut in New York City in October 2022 for the premiere of Cavill's Netflix movie Enola Holmes 2.

Viscuso is a television executive at Vertigo Entertainment. She and Cavill revealed they are collaborating together on an adaptation of Warhammer 40,000 in December 2022.

At the time, Cavill said in an Instagram post that the partnership "has been a blessing beyond words, [as] without her we might not have found the perfect home at Amazon."

"Fantasy, horror and sci-fi are the bedrock of my creative language, so when Henry introduced me to Warhammer a couple of years ago, I immediately felt at home," Viscuso wrote on Instagram at the time.
