Henry Cavill In Talks To Play Superman Again But Not In A Standalone Movie

Reports say the actor is in talks to play Superman once more.


Multiple media reports have claimed Henry Cavill is set to reprise his role as Superman. Deadline and The Wrap are reporting that Cavill is "in talks" to come back.

Deadline reported that Cavill may return as Superman in "a couple of different ways," but not in a standalone movie. It's reported that Cavill may come back as Superman in Shazam 2, Black Adam, or Aquaman 2 in a cameo role.

Cavill debuted as Superman in 2013's Man of Steel. He also played the character in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

In November 2019, Cavill alluded to how he would be back as Superman one day. "The cape is in the closet," Cavill said. "It's still mine."

He added: "I've not given up the role. There's a lot I have to give for Superman. 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."

Cavill currently stars on Netflix's hit fantasy show, The Witcher, which had a very successful first season. Season 2 was filming until the COVID-19 outbreak took hold.
