Man Of Steel actor Henry Cavill will be wearing the red and blue suit once again. It was announced today that “Witcher” actor Henry Cavill returning to his role as Superman in multiple movies that were announced by DC Comics and Warner Brothers.
Reports in 2018 were that Cavill was done donning the role of Superman after the dumpster fire that was the Justice League. This contract isn’t necessarily for Man Of Steele 2 but this contract is similar to what Marvel has done with their character the Hulk. Hulk does supporting roles and cameos in various films.
The deal seems to be a smart move in the making. Zack Snyder recently did a live stream re-watch of “Man of Steel” with Henry Cavill. This along with the reshoots that Zack Snyder is getting of his very own director’s cut of “Justice League”, proves very interesting. Sources close to the deal seem to have him more in a supporting role, than in his own future solo movies. Kind of like how Iron Man was for Spider-Man and The Avengers going into the later films. He seems to have a great head about the character. Knowing that the truly amazing part of Superman was the strength of his heart, as well as his muscles.
“Where we left off with Man of Steel, in particular, was the guy who had found his place, or was trying to find his place but had sort of found it by the end, that had committed something which he would consider a most horrific sin by killing the last member of his species,” Cavill said. “That is a place where I would like to travel from with the character. Him exploring the positivity of who he is. Not necessarily the chocolate box version, but the leaning into that. That character who becomes an icon of hope and enjoying that experience rather than necessarily being made uncomfortable by it.”Henry Cavill.
Reports circulated that Warner Brothers was working on a Supergirl movie because of the unknown status of the Man Of Steel franchise, but it seems that this idea is dying down now.
Cavill’s recent interest to return back to the world of Superman may have to do with director Zack Snyder. Snyder’s original cut of Justice League is being premiered on HBO sometime next year and this could be the sole reason for Cavill coming back.
Time will tell what this all means but for the fans of DC and Cavill, this is huge news for the comic world.
