Henry Cavill will reportedly reprise his role as Superman in the DC Universe - and we know what film it won't be. Though there is no confirmation on the next slate of films starring the actor, it seems like he might return as Clark Kent / Superman in the upcoming DC Comics movie. With Ben Affleck stepping down as the Batman and handing over the cape to Robert Pattinson, fans were curious about Cavill's role in the future of DC films.
It's also known that Henry Cavill and his Mission Impossible director Christopher McQuarrie pitched WB plans for both Superman and Green Lantern, but Warner Bros. passed on their pitch, which I assume is because of J.J. Abrams. And Cavill will once again be seen playing Superman in the Snyder version.
Cavill has previously mentioned that he would be interested in reprising the role of Superman.
"The cape is still in the closet", the star of The Witcher said. It's still mine. I'm not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on.
And now he's getting just that with Zack Snyder's Justice League set to hit Warner Bros streaming service HBO Max in 2021.
Henry Cavill was last seen as Superman in Justice League. In his interviews and social media posts, the actor always shows his appreciation for Superman and the character's importance in the comic book universe, even naming his beloved dog "Kal". "A Superman who you see his raw power, not necessarily unleashed in a negative way, but you see it in the protection of other people".
