Momoa: Cavill Is Still Superman 100%

Momoa Cavill Is Still Superman 100

During interviews this month, “Justice League” actors Jason Momoa and Amy Adams have spoken on the record about the future of the DCEU with both seemingly being uncertain about where Warner Bros. Pictures is going with its DC Comics adaptations in the future.

Adams tells Variety that she didn’t think she would be back as Lois Lane as she thinks they’re “revamping that” but doesn’t know the details.

That was followed by comments two days ago from “Aquaman” title star Momoa who said he didn’t know what was happening with Cavill in the role of Superman. The actor has been rumored to be leaving the part, as has Ben Affleck as Batman, and Momoa commented to The Huffington Post earlier this week on their potential exits, saying:

“If they’re both out, then listen: It’s just the place they’re at in their careers. I mean, how many has Henry done? He’s done three? Yeah, I mean, like, you want to move on. I think if I did… s–t, I have done three. Ben is an amazing director that is of age, and probably he’s done enough. I don’t know how to speak on behalf of them, but I had the time of my life [on Justice League]. Henry is the gentlemen who taught me when I came on not knowing anything. I’m like the ruffian hooligan, and he’s just like, ‘There’s kids watching,’ and I’m like, ‘Oh, yeah. My bad.’ He is totally 100% the Superman for me.”

Now though, speaking to Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet for “Aquaman,” Momoa was adamant about Cavill not leaving just yet. Momoa was asked if Cavill was done with the role to which he responded:

“He’s absolutely not. He loves the character and he’s not [leaving]. 100%.”

How that plays out, we’ll see. Affleck’s fate seems more uncertain due to Matt Reeves’ long-gestating “The Batman” film with El Mayimbe reporting that a rewrite of the script was due to be turned in before the end of the year.

“Aquaman” opens in cinemas in select countries tomorrow, and in the U.S. and most of the world on December 21st.
