During a conversation broadcast by Variety, Henry Cavill commented on the impact that playing Superman had on his career and suggested his return to the character. The site brought together in a virtual way, through the series of videos Actors on Actors, the actor and Patrick Stewart (Star Trek: Picard) precisely because they lived iconic figures of pop culture and of significant importance in their professional lives.
“It’s something I’ve always been incredibly grateful for. I’ve always been a fan of Superman. With a character like that, you carry the cloak everywhere, and that becomes part of your public representation. When I meet children, they don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they can see Superman, and there’s a responsibility that comes with that, “said the young man.
“For being such a wonderful character, it is really an assignment that I am happy to have, and I hope to be able to play him more in the coming years,” he added. In this sense, the speech should be seen as a complement to the news that Cavill would be negotiating to return to the role, recently revealed, which heats up rumors about his possible participation in the next DC films.
When asked by Stewart about the relevance of the Man of Steel in his career, Cavill said he believed in that fact. “My life has changed dramatically because of that. And I had a lot of opportunities for roles. Yes, it was one of those characters that transformed the entire course of my career. I am incredibly grateful for teaching me a lot.”
“He’s so nice and kind. When you start comparing yourself to him, you really reflect and ask yourself, ‘Am I a good person? Can I be good enough to play Superman?’. If you hear a whisper, something like, ‘Wait. , maybe not ‘, you adjust and make sure you’re a better person. I think that’s all we can do in life “, he added on the subject.
The Justice League Snyder Cut
At one point in the conversation, Stewart wanted Cavill to reveal possible new information about the Justice League Snyder Cut. “The famous, infamous and all sorts of things Snyder Cut. I really can’t say anything but that all I know is that HBO Max is going to release it and it will be Zack’s final vision for the film.”
“I think it’s important that a filmmaker and a storyteller have the intended vision disseminated and shown to the world. And I’m looking forward to seeing it. When the Justice League came out, there was a mix of approaches, and the film was not well received. So , in the following years, there was a great effort to see the legendary Snyder Cut. The time has come, and I think it will be very nice to see Zack finally release his version “, concluded Cavill.
