Superman Actor Henry Cavill Plays Coy on Rumors of His DCEU Return

Superman, Justice League characters

Zack Snyder's director cut of Justice League made a super-powered impact on DC FanDome after revealing an exciting full-length trailer for Snyder's passion project. This cut of Justice League, which has already been confirmed to be releasing in four hour-long installments on HBO Max, is even set to bring back some of the initial cast for a week of filming new scenes.

Though Henry Cavill was initially reported to be returning for the reshoots, the actor later revealed that he would not be involved with any additional filming for Snyder's Justice League, but there may still be hope for Cavill's future with Superman.

NEWS

In a new interview with GQ about the upcoming Netflix film Enola Holmes, Superman actor Henry Cavill was asked if there was any truth to the rumors which claimed that he had signed a deal with Warner Brothers to reprise his Superman role for three more films.

Cavill responded by saying "Well, I think it’s important that this should be about Enola Holmes."

The interviewer pointed out that Cavill's response was not a definitive "no," to which Cavill merely grinned and stated "I said what I said."

WHAT THIS MEANS

Henry Cavill's future involvement with the DCEU has long been a source for speculation. While the actor has stated that he would love to play Superman again, Warner Brothers' shift in focus on the DC properties has left the Man of Steel's next step in an uncertain situation. Cavill's refusal to speak on the subject of a potential return, however, may spark some hope as to the validity of the claims that he has signed on to appear in more DC films as Superman.

Henry Cavill is not usually known to play coy when asked about Superman and the DCEU, even when promoting other projects like The Witcher. It also still remains to be seen whether a potential Cavill/ Superman return will be for other DCEU properties, or for a new set of Superman films featuring Cavill as the Man of Steel.

With all the anticipation surrounding Zack Snyder's cut of Justice League, Warner Brothers may even attempt to capitalize off the excitement around that project to bring Snyder's Superman back to the big screen once again. Though, fans will just have to wait until 2021 to see.
