Rumors of Henry Cavill (Man of Steel) return have been floating since his last portrayal of Superman in Justice League. In May, it was reported that Cavill was in talks to reprise his role once again.
However, all that is know is he wasn’t considered for a Man of Steel 2, Wonder Woman 1984, The Batman, or The Suicide Squad. The news could point to Superman playing the role of connective tissue throughout the DCEU movies, similar to Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Cavill Always a Superman Fanboy
Henry Cavill sat down with Patrick Stewart on a remotely filmed episode of Variety’s Actors on Actors and shared that he would like to play Superman again. The two actors spent time discussing their life-changing roles, with Stewart talking about Picard on Star Trek, and Cavill talking about Superman.
Stewart says for actors, a part may come along that has an enormous impact on future roles. He asked if that happened for Cavill with Superman. Cavill replied,
“I’ve always been a fan of Superman. With a character like that, you carry the mantle with you off set. And it becomes part of your public representation. When you meet children, children don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there’s a responsibility which comes with that.”
Cavill continues, “Because it’s such a wonderful character, it’s actually a responsibility I’m happy to have, and I hope that I get to play more of Superman in years to come.“
Hmm, what do you all think about this guys?
