Henry Cavill is tipped to return as Superman. What are the recent updates? Here is everything you should know!
Will Henry Cavill return as Superman?
Two years after leaving the role, Henry Cavill is once again in talks to play Clark Kent / Superman in DC Comics-based movies. Cavill’s return to the role, for the upcoming “Justice League” “Snyder Cut” or additional work that will appear in future films, has not been disclosed. The British actor first appeared as a superhero in 2013’s “Man of Steel”, in 2016 for “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and in 2017 for “Justice League”.
Warner Bros. was rethinking its strategy for DC Comics movies, moving away from a shared universe point of view and toward independent films. And indeed, a few months after Cavill’s departure, the independent film “The Batman” planned to focus on a smaller version of the character played by Batman actors Ben Affleck and Robert Pattison was dropped.
What’s the more updates?
Cavill currently starred in Netflix’s “The Witcher” and plays Geralt of Rivia. Whedon Oversaw not only publishes production work, but also has weeks of shadowless re-filming involving the entire main cast, and an iteration that drastically changes the original story. The end result was a confusing and hilarious movie with Superman, who inadvertently seemed hilarious, thanks to the fact that Cavill had grown his mustache for another movie and CG “Just League” to edit the mustache.
Those efforts paid off last week when the WB announced that they were at least saying that “The Snyder Cut” would premiere in 2021 on the company’s upcoming streaming service, HBO Max. It is unknown how Cavill will be involved, but hopefully this time they will avoid having a clean shave on their contract.
