Ever since Justice league, we haven’t seen Henry Cavill play the role of Superman. Some sources claim that the actor would not be returning to the role of arguably the most popular superhero of all time.
Some claim that due to Cavill’s new role as the protagonist, Geralt of Rivia in the Witcher series, he had left the role of Superman for good.
Although recently, the studio is listening to fans who seem to vocally want back Henry Cavill to keep playing Superman. Ever since the Superman cameo in Shazam, a lot of fans believe it was intended for the new Witcher star.
The cameo did not specifically show the face of Superman, which means it wasn’t Cavill. Although Cavill has made it clear multiple times he would love to stay in the role.
He even says he’d like to adapt. And that’s not all.
Henry Cavill’s fate might even hinge on Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) who also wants Cavill in Shazam 2! And the Black Adam sequel in other to slug it out with Kahndaq’s magical antihero and ruler.
I guess we’ll just have to wait and see how that goes. Though Cavill told Men’s Health that fans can count on him to be all in:
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.
Based on his rather tight schedule and what he has often told other outlets, Henry Cavill could do two projects or double feature films a year. It’s gonna be a lot of work but then again, it’s what he’s paid to do.
