Henry Cavill Admits JUSTICE LEAGUE "Didn't Work," But Says He Hasn't Given Up Playing SUPERMAN

Henry Cavill Admits JUSTICE LEAGUE "Didn't Work," But Says He Hasn't Given Up Playing SUPERMAN

It's been nearly a decade since Henry Cavill was first cast as Superman and in a new interview, he's acknowledges the failings of some of the DC movies, but says he still wants to play the hero in future.

If Henry Cavill has anything to say about it, he's not finished playing Superman in the DC Extended Universe. That's quite a surprise following reports that he's walked away from the role, but during a recent interview with Men's Health, the actor was quick to point out that he does want to return. 

"The cape is in the closet. It's still mine," he revealed. "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."

The profile on Cavill mentions that the reason he didn't appear in Shazam! was because of scheduling conflicts with Mission: Impossible - Fallout, and it's thought that he's under contract for at least one more appearance as Superman should Warner Bros. choose to bring him back to the DCEU. 
 
Asked about Man of Steel, Cavill says that it's "A great starting point. If I were to go back, I don’t think I’d change anything." As for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, he says it was "Very much a Batman movie. And I think that realm of darkness is great for a Batman movie." Justice League, on the other hand? Well, he pointed out that "It didn’t work."

Will we see Cavill return as Superman? For now, that obviously remains to be seen.
