Great news DC fans it seems Henry Cavill will once again reprise his role as Superman in future projects for Warner Bros. Pictures. We have learned that Cavill will reprise his role as Clark Kent, though for now a sequel to Man of Steel is not currently in the works from the studio. From what we’ve uncovered, it sounds like Cavill’s Superman will be appearing in films as a supporting role or even smaller cameos. The future of Cavill’s Superman has not yet been fully decided, and it sounds like Warner Bros. and DC Comics are still figuring out where the character best fits in upcoming films.
This new deal is part of the reason that Cavill appeared on director Zack Snyder’s live stream rewatch of Man of Steel last week, the same stream where Snyder announced that his cut of Justice League is coming to HBO Max. Cavill has expressed an interest in returning to the role of Superman in the past. “Where we left off with Man of Steel, in particular, was the guy who had found his place, or was trying to find his place but had sort of found it by the end, that had committed something which he would consider a most horrific sin by killing the last member of his species,” Cavill said. “That is a place where I would like to travel from with the character. Him exploring the positivity of who he is. Not necessarily the chocolate box version, but the leaning into that. That character who becomes an icon of hope and enjoying that experience rather than necessarily being made uncomfortable by it.”
