Justice League star Henry Cavill continues to dish out stories from when they were doing press tours for the 2017 DC film. We reported last week that Cavill revealed that he was actually told by Warner Bros. to keep mum about Superman's involvement in the then Joss Whedon-directed flick, as silly as that may sound.



The #JusticeLeague needs him.

Going into detail about how things went down during his appearance on The Empire Film Podcast, Henry recalled his unpleasant press tour experiences and even went as far as describing them as "super awkward". Yikes. Here's what he had to say: "It was one of those weird situations where I guess… no one really knew what they wanted," he said. "And it was like 'hey, we need Henry on the press tour, but let’s not tell anyone he’s in the movie.’"

The Witcher actor added: “I was like: 'Okay, well, it’s going to be super awkward for me, guys. Thank you for giving me an impossible scenario. I’m just going to say to people [on the press tour]: Well, yeah, I was here for moral support. I made the tea.’”


I understand Cavill's frustrations over the incident because even I am still quite puzzled as to why they decided to handle things that way considering the Man of Steel's death and eventual return was an integral part of the film's plot. It's not like everyone would've bought into the idea of a JL film without the Kryptonian hero himself. I guess we may never truly know why and it will forever remain a mystery. In the meantime, setting aside all the horrific scenarios he experienced while doing promo three years ago, Cavill remains to be a strong supporter and believer of the DC Extended Universe, especially the upcoming Snyder Cut of Justice League which hits HBO Max sometime in 2021. It's a superhero event every DC fan couldn't afford to miss.

In other Henry Cavill news, his new film Enola Holmes is now streaming on Netflix.
