Apparently, Henry Cavill is still Superman, as the actor has revealed in a new interview that he hasn’t “given up the role” despite reports to the contrary.
“I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on,” Cavill told Men’s Health, referring to the rumours that he was no longer the Man of Steel. “I’ve not given up the role.”
The actor even hinted at possible future appearances as Superman:
“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. The status is: You’ll see.”
He even went through and appraised his various DCEU appearances, calling Man of Steel “a great starting point … I don’t think I’d change anything.”
In Cavill’s opinion Batman v Superman was “very much a Batman movie” and Justice League, which is still seeing fans and actors call for the release of the mysterious “Snyder Cut” – well, he was less kind, simply stating that (quite rightly) “It didn’t work.”
For now, Cavill’s future is still intertwined with Superman, as in his own words, “the cape is in the closet. It’s still mine.”
So that’s that, I guess.
