When Henry Cavill had donned the Superman costume, it really did seem like the future of the DCU was bright. The actor had made his debut in the movie, Man of Steel but then, we never really got a sequel. Henry Cavill had then reprised this role for the movie, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and also in the movie, Justice League. During this time, there had been a lot of interest from the fans to get a sequel from the fans and from Cavill himself.
In a very recent interview with Kevin McCarthy from FOX 5, Henry Cavill had been asked about the movement by all of the fans to see the Snyder cut of Justice League. Cavill had been pretty succinct in his response and he had said that he wants to focus on what actually lies ahead with the character, Superman.
“I’m always interested to see how that stuff turns out but that is very much a chapter of my past, I would rather talk about what is going to happen in the future. The future of Superman, how I can express that character from the comic books, which ties in nicely to Man of Steel. Man of Steel, I really like that movie, and I’d like to be able to tell the story where it was left at that point.”
When he had been asked if this was a hint that we could expect a follow-up, Cavill had been cagey and said,
“I can tell you nothing unfortunately. It would indeed be awesome.”
It’s unclear if Cavill intended for this comment to be read as “I can’t tell you because I’m not allowed to” or “I can’t tell you because there is nothing to share.”
For many years now, there has not really been any official news about a sequel but this has surely not stopped rumors from making their rounds.
Cavill has also expressed interest in having the Man of Steel fight Brainiac the next time he makes an appearance. He had then added that he wanted a movie adaptation of the Superman storyline called, “For Tomorrow” which follows Superman struggle with failing to save people from disappearing from Earth.
“There’s a lot of weight to it,” Cavill had said.
“I don’t know if it’s the exact one I’d make a movie out of but I’d definitely take tones from it. You really get an insight into Superman’s mind. He talks to a priest a lot and you see him trying to save the world in literally the most magnificent of ways.”
“He’s so naive in some aspects of it but he’s using all the power that he possibly can to create a utopia and within all this stuff is a lot of darkness, a lot of sadness in him.”
