British actor Henry Cavill wants to make it clear – he’s not done yet playing Superman.
The “Mission: Impossible – Fallout” and “The Man from UNCLE” star has just done an extensive interview with Men’s Health ahead of the release of “The Witcher” TV series next month on Netflix in which he stars.
Cavill has taken on the role of Clark Kent/Superman in three films – “Man of Steel,” “Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice” and “Justice League” – but more recently it seemed as though he was done with the part with reports of a falling out between his reps and the studio.
In the new interview though, Cavill says he is still the last son of Krypton as far as he’s aware, and he’s not planning on going anywhere:
“The cape is in the closet. It’s still mine… I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on. 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 actor was also asked for an honest assessment of the three films he has played the role in so far, and says:
“Man of Steel? ‘A great starting point. If I were to go back, I don’t think I’d change anything.’ Batman v Superman? ‘Very much a Batman movie. And I think that realm of darkness is great for a Batman movie.’ Justice League? ‘It didn’t work.'”
As of now there have been no discussions for a new “Superman” film, while Cavill will likely first reprise his Geralt of Rivia role for the second season of “The Witcher” which has already been greenlit. The first season hits December 20th.
