Man of Steel Star Henry Cavill is Still Adamant About Reprising Superman Role

Henry Cavill's DC Extended Universe future seems to be in doubt especially with the lack of plans on Warner Bros. and DC Films' end but the Man of Steel star remains optimistic that he'll get to play Superman once again on the big screen. If we're not gonna count Zack Snyder's Justice League, Cavill's last official DCEU appearance took place over four years ago in Joss Whedon's theatrical cut of the film which is quite frustrating especially given the fact that Cavill was promised his Man of Steel 2 project.

In an interview with GQ Spain, the star of Netflix's hit fantasy-action series The Witcher pitched an idea for his Superman return which would pick up where the Snyder Cut left off. Expressing his desire to portray a Darkseid-controlled Man of Steel, the British actor said: "I was very keen on really fleshing out Superman's early stages of his journey first. We had Man of Steel, and then we went quite a bit darker with Batman V Superman."

Henry added: "And if he were to succumb to the Anti-Life Equation and become bad Superman, I really wanted to make sure we saw the hero Superman, and we saw the true symbol of hope, the beacon of light, before we went down the path of darkness and then redemption. And it's still something that I am very keen to flesh out."

The way WB and DC Films are treating Henry Cavill still remains a huge mystery to a lot of fans, myself included and it's just so frustrating how they can't seem to get their act together. I mean, Cavill has proven his worth as Superman and a lot of fans are still behind him, so why not just pull the trigger and let him continue playing the character?

Meanwhile, Henry Cavill is set to return as Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher Season 2.
