The star is ready to wear the red cape again.
Henry Cavill spoke about how he would love to become Superman again for future projects, and the star has a clear idea where he would take the Son of Krypton next. Talking to GQ, Cavill reflected on Superman’s journey in the three movies he starred in and how he thinks future adventures should consolidate the Kryptonian as a symbol of hope before turning him evil.
Speaking about his journey as Superman, Cavill underlined how the first appearances of the hero served to give him a proper origin story. In Cavill’s words, “I was very keen on really fleshing out Superman's early stages of his journey first. We had Man of Steel, and then we went quite a bit darker with Batman v Superman.” Cavill would wear the cape back again on 2017’s Justice League, the last appearance of the hero. However, the recent release of Zack Snyder's Justice League revealed the director’s original plans to turn Superman evil, leading to an apocalyptic scenario where Batman must team up with the Joker to save humanity. While Cavill agrees an evil Superman story is exciting for fans, he would prefer to have more time to explore the Kryptonian years as a hero.
