Admitting that Justice League “didn’t work”, Henry Cavill is still keen to play Superman again.
Following 2017’s Justice League movie, there was a feeling that we may have seen the last of Henry Cavill’s take on Superman. That Warner Bros has clearly had some kind of course correction in the aftermath of that film, with a change in personnel for Batman being one of the ramifications (Robert Pattinson taking over from Ben Affleck for a start).
There had been talk of a Man Of Steel 2 being in the cards, starring Cavill of course, but word on that project has been non-existent for some time now.
Yet in a new interview with Men’s Health (as reported by Batman News), a publication that’s, er, regular reading for me, Cavill has insisted his time as Superman isn’t over just yet.
“The cape is in the closet”, he insisted. “It’s still mine”.
“I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman”.
As for the future status of any Superman production starring Cavill? “You’ll see”, he added.
He was also pretty candid about the three films he’s appeared in as Superman so far, describing for instance Man Of Steel as “a great starting point”, but conceding that Justice League “didn’t work”.
The new issue of Men’s Health is on sale now.
