Two years after departing the role, Henry Cavill is in talks to once again portray Clark Kent/Superman in films based on DC Comics, insiders with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
The extent of Cavill’s return to the role — whether just for additional work to be done for the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” or for appearances in future films — has not been disclosed.
If you know me, you know I'm the number 1 Henry Cavill guy in the world. Is that because He looks like the best possible version of me? You know, if I gave even the slightest shit about my health or personal appearance? Anyway, this is fantastic news. 'Man of Steel' is definitely better than people give it credit for, and he was certainly not what was wrong with 'Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice' or 'Justice League'. In fact, I'd argue that his awakening is the best scene in the former.
My one hope with whatever movies he gets to are a little lighter than the previous ones. Most people agree the DCEU movies are wayyyyy too dark, so hopefully they can let him have some levity. He's a funny guy! I also love that he is a PC guy.
