Henry Cavill Is Rumoured To Be Coming Back To Play Superman

Henry Cavill Is Rumoured To Be Coming Back To Play Superman

Henry Cavill isn't quite ready to hang up his cape and is in talks to return to play Clark Kent in a new Superman movie, according to reports from Variety.

The musclebound English actor has played the superhero on three occasions before, in Man of Steel back in 2013, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, and then last time out in 2017's Justice League.

Having enjoyed his experiences with those movies, Cavill seems like he's clinging onto the cape for any future projects, too.

Not long ago, he told Men's Health: "The cape is still in the closet.

"It's still mine. I'm not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the 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. The status is: You'll see."

While that isn't outright confirmation, it does seem as if Cavill's name will be at the top of the list when the casting call is put out for the next flick.

Henry Cavill Says The Witcher Doesn't Mean He Won't Play Superman Again

Elsewhere in the DC Universe, director Zack Snyder recently announced that he plans to released the 'Snyder Cut' of Justice League.

The directors cut version of their ensemble comic book caper won't see Cavill suiting up, according to sources, but he will be turning out for a cameo in one of DC's films that are slated to come out in the not-so-distant future.

That could be The Suicide Squad, The Batman, or alongside Jason Momoa for Aquaman 2.

More recently, Cavill has been plying his trade away from the silver screen, but still pulling out performances and doing big numbers.

Whilst his most recent big screen role was in 2018's Mission Impossible: Fallout, he played Geralt of Rivia in Netflix's massively popular adaptation of The Witcher.

The mastermind behind that show, Lauren Hissrich, confirmed that season two of The Witcher had been given the green light a whole month before the first even arrived on the streaming platform.

Production did actually get underway in February, but - like just about everything else - it has been put on a forced hiatus as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

They've spoken about a release later this year before, but have also said that they want to take their time to get things right.

That sounds fair enough given everything that has happened.
