After his return in Black Adam, Henry Cavill inevitably talked about a new Superman in the DC Universe.
The British actor made his debut as Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel, which, directed by Zack Snyder, was meant to kick-start the film franchise formerly known as the DC Extended Universe.
Like Man of Steel, Cavill’s return in Snyder’s subsequent installments, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, were disappointing at the box office. Once the director left the franchise, Superman took a back seat, and reports indicated Cavill would not return either.
After a long period of uncertainty, Henry Cavill returns as Superman. The cameo appearance in Black Adam signaled Superman’s return to the DCU and gave hope for the future.
What Cavill wants from Clark Kent
During an exclusive interview with Screen Rant, Cavill continued to tease his fans, talking about Superman and his future.
“There are so many details to debate. Obviously, I have a very close connection to the character. There’s something special about him; extraordinarily special in terms of his ability to give and to love. I’m not talking about something romantic; I’m talking about his love for Earth and the people who live here,” Henry Cavill told the publication.
“I have a lot of desires, of course. But the most important thing, which I will also pursue, is for audiences to walk out of the theater and feel like they can fly, feel like they can protect. That would be my goal,” he added.
Recall that the actor, who until recently starred in The Witcher, stepped down from his role in the Netflix franchise to pursue his other projects, including the Superman-related one.
On Saturday, the streaming giant said Liam Hemsworth, best known for his role as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games film series, will replace Henry Cavill as the titular character, Geralt of Rivia.
