Cavill On “Justice League” Start, Superman

Henry Cavill has confirmed that pre-production on the first of the “Justice League” films is slated to kick off in January.

Cavill confirmed the news during a visit to Jimmy Fallon’s talk show this week to promote Guy Ritchie’s spy comedy “The Man From U.N.C.L.E.” in which he stars. In a separate interview with The Guardian, he also spoke about the one opponent that can stop Superman:

“Superman is a complex dude. People think Kryptonite can beat him. No. The only thing that can really beat Superman is Superman. His own noggin messing with him. His own moral choices. When you have that to start with, the storytelling can really delve into something rich.”

With the DC Cinematic Universe planned out for years to come, is Cavill prepared to take on the part for what could well be the next decade?

“It’s a wonderful role. There’s a huge potential there for complex storytelling, and I’m looking forward to exploring those avenues. Come on, it’s Superman! You can’t be pissed off at the idea of playing Superman for the rest of your life. ‘Oh sorry, I’m just the grandaddy of all superheroes. It’s such a pain.'”

Cavill’s next outing in the role, “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice,” opens late March.
