Henry Cavill Still Wants to Return as Superman in a Man of Steel Sequel

There may still be hope for fans to see Henry Cavill donning Superman‘s cape once more. One might argue that he already did it in the recently released Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but fans still call for another solo film. While Warner Bros. doesn’t currently look interested in another feature with Cavill leading as the Man of Steel, the British actor would like to return as Clark Kent. Especially since the end of 2013’s Man of Steel left so many open doors.

“There is still a lot of storytelling for me to do as a Superman, and I would absolutely love the opportunity,” Cavill said while talking with THR. “The killing of Zod gave a reason for the character never to kill again. Superman falling to the ground and screaming afterward — I don’t think that was originally in the script, but I wanted to show the pain he had. I did far more emotional takes they didn’t choose; tears were happening. He just killed the last remaining member of his species. That’s the choice he made in that moment, and he’ll never do that again. There’s an opportunity for growth after that, to explore the psyche of Superman as a deep, seemingly invulnerable god-like being but with real feeling on the inside. As I always say, ‘The cape is still in the closet.’”

Producers are now focusing on a new Superman movie where a person of color will portray the titular hero. When asked about it, Cavill stated that he has no issue with a Black Superman and that the symbol that the superhero represents is far more important than skin color.

“It’s exciting — Superman’s far more than skin color,” Cavill said. “Superman is an ideal. Superman’s an extraordinary thing that lives within our hearts. Why not have multiple Supermen going on? Joaquin Phoenix did a wonderful Joker movie; so what if it’s not tied to the rest of [the franchise]? They have multiple Superman comic book storylines happening at the same time.”
