A new report suggests that Superman actor Henry Cavill is looking to negotiate a contract extension with Warner Bros. Pictures which would see him staying within the DCEU.
The 34-year-old actor debuted as the DC Comics hero in “Man of Steel,” and reprised the role for both “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League”. All three of Snyder’s films have been received with mixed reviews at best, but Cavill has been embraced in the role with many keen to see how he’d do without Snyder.
Cavill revealed during promotional rounds for “Justice League” he is only contracted for one more appearance in the role, that likely to be a short appearance in the currently in production “Shazam” film.
Now, Revenge of the Fans indicates Cavill is looking to set a new or extended deal which would begin with a direct “Man of Steel” sequel and they say “both parties are reportedly very open to the idea of an extension” and it’s now simply “a matter of contractual logistics”.
Matthew Vaughn, Steven DeKnight, and George Miller have all been rumored as potential helmers for a possible “Man of Steel” sequel, but there’s been no further progress since.
