The “will he or won’t he” saga of Henry Cavill’s tenure has Superman has been filled with twists and turns. Thankfully, there seems to be light at the end of the tunnel, as Cavill is reportedly preparing to reprise his role in upcoming projects. While the exact circumstances regarding his return have yet to be revealed, the actor is now opening up about his hope for playing the role down the road.
Henry Cavill recently reflected on his journey as the Man of Steel so far and stressed that he’s always been a fan of the character. And not only has he enjoyed his time in the role, but it sounds like he’s hoping to play him for a while:
The DC Extended Universe star only had good things to say about the role when discussing it with fellow superhero alum Patrick Stewart on an installment of Variety’s Actors on Actors. Henry Cavill would go on to explain that the role has not only affected the trajectory of his career but also his mindset as a person:
Like Robert Downey Jr. or Chris Evans, it can certainly be said that Henry Cavill truly embodies the spirit of his superhero character. While Man of Steel was initially polarizing when it released in 2013, Cavill’s performance received generally positive responses from fans and critics alike, and the love for his rendition of Supes has only grown with time.
Cavill’s desire to remain in the role of Superman is surely music to fans’ ears and bodes well for the DCEU moving forward. Yet there is still the matter of when and where he’ll actually appear. There are a few prime options for him in upcoming DC films though, like many fans, Cavill is hoping the character will eventually fly into another solo film.
Whatever the case, it’s just good to know that Henry Cavill is more than happy to keep playing Superman for the foreseeable future, and it’ll be exciting to see where he pops up next.
