On the heels of Deadline reporting that Henry Cavill might end up reprising the Superman role in an undisclosed DC Comics film, the actor has voiced his desire to keep playing the role.
Here is the quote via Variety’s Actors On Actors while Henry was speaking with Sir Patrick Stewart.
CAVILL: “I’ve always been a fan of Superman. With a character like that, you carry the mantle with you off set. And it becomes part of your public representation. When you meet children, children don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there’s a responsibility which comes with that. Because it’s such a wonderful character, it’s actually a responsibility I’m happy to have, and I hope that I get to play more of Superman in years to come.”
It remains to be seen if we’ll end up seeing Superman in The Flash or the Shazam! sequel. Fans certainly will have their own theories where he could show up.
I’m interested to see what happens with Michael Keaton reportedly in talks to reprise Bruce Wayne in multiple projects becoming the Nick Fury of the DC Comics films.
