Henry Cavill gives hope for new Superman Movie
There is still “a lot of storytelling” for Henry Cavill as Superman, and he says he’s ready to put on the cape once more.
“Man of Steel,” the 2013 film in which he portrayed Superman, hasn’t been followed by a sequel, and the 38-year-old actor thinks he has more stories to tell as the character.
The Hollywood Reporter quoted Henry as saying: “There is a lot of storytelling for me to do as Superman, and I would absolutely love the opportunity.
“The killing of Zod gave a reason for the character never to kill again. Superman falling to the ground and screaming afterward – I don’t think that was originally in the script, but I wanted to show the pain he had.
“He just killed the last remaining member of his species. That’s the choice he made in that moment, and he’ll never do that again.”
Continued by the “Enola Holmes” star: “There’s an opportunity for growth after that, to explore the psyche of Superman as a deep, seemingly invulnerable god-like being but with real feeling on the inside.
“As I always say, ‘The cape is still in the closet.’
According to Henry, the prospect of playing the iconic spy is “very exciting” to him, and he has been tipped to replace Daniel Craig in the role.
Henry stated that he was interested in the role when asked about it “I think it would be very exciting to have a conversation with the producers… In an ideal world, I’d never have to turn anything down. Nothing is off the table. It’s an honour to even be part of that conversation.”
In the upcoming spy thriller “Argylle,” Cavill will star alongside Matthew Vaughn, who previously tipped the actor to play the role of 007.
In order to make “Argylle” into a franchise, Matthew stated, “I needed someone who was born to play Bond—which Henry is—and then nick him before Bond did.”
