Henry Cavill will once again wear the red and blue suit in an upcoming DC movie.
According to Variety, the British actor is in talks to return to the role that he previously played in the 2013 Man of Steel film, 2016’s Batman v Superman and 2017’s Justice League.
In May, director Zack Snyder announced that he would be releasing a “Snyder Cut” of the famed film Justice League, after he had to drop out due to a family tragedy.
Joss Whedon took over the project, however, it was a very different film.
It is rumoured that Cavill will not make an appearance in the new cut, however, will have a cameo in either Aquaman 2, The Suicide Squad or The Batman.
In an interview in 2019, Cavill told Men’s Health that he was still keen on reviving Clark Kent’s alter-ego.
“The cape is still in the closet,” he said. “It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”
While Cavill’s career has taken him to Netflix’s The Witcher, the actor told GamesRadar, that other jobs wouldn’t keep him from the role.
“You’ve got to keep in mind that regardless of what movies I’ll be doing over the next few years, you can fit two projects into one year,” he said.
