Henry Cavill seemed like he was never going to dawn the cape of Superman again after the lackluster response to ‘Justice League’ and the behind-the-scenes struggles with awkward CGI being used to cover up his mustache in re-shoots. That could be changing.
The word going around Hollywood for a while was that Warner Bros would likely not have Cavill reprise the role that he had portrayed in ‘Man of Steel’, ‘Batman vs Superman’ and ‘Justice League’. Then we got the news a few weeks ago, that Cavill was not done playing the last son of Krypton and he would have small cameos in more DC Cinematic Universe films as the famed hero, but would he come back for more?
“I’ve always been a fan of Superman,” said Cavill, in a special Variety’Actors on Actors’ episode this week. “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. 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.”
This came out during Cavill’s discussion with fellow beloved actor Patrick Stewart.
Now this does not mean we will get more full movies with Cavill’s Superman, but it certainly seems like the 37 yeard old actor is still down to punch some bad guys to the Moon.
And do not go telling me 37 is too old play a superhero, they got Michael Keaton may come back for Batman for crying cape out loud!
