Speaking about his role in Zack Snyder’s “Justice League,” actor Henry Cavill has confirmed to The LA Times that he is under contract to play Superman one more time in the DC cinematic universe after the current film.
He also expressed a hope that his next appearance will come in the form of the “Man of Steel” sequel which will build on the character’s literal and figurative rebirth during the events of “Justice League”:
“There’s a wonderful opportunity to tell the Superman story. Now there is a fantastic chance to show Superman in his full colors and tell a very complex, character-driven movie that is based on story and have that wonderful sensation of hope and happiness. A feel-good movie with lessons laced in there as well.”
No script or serious development on a ‘Man’ sequel has begun. The comments come as the final tally for the film’s domestic opening weekend has fallen short and came in at $94 million. Additionally fans have started a petition for the release of Zack Snyder’s cut of the film on home video. The petition asks for “Snyder’s movie as he intended on home video, with the score he wanted, and with a runtime of his choosing”.
The comments come as leaked footage of deleted scenes circulated the internet over the weekend.
