Henry Cavill brought Superman back from the dead this weekend in Zack Snyder's Justice League - which is an excellent time at the movies for those wondering - and it sounds like the actor has a few ideas in mind about where he'd like to take the Man Of Steel for his next big screen appearance.
Speaking with the Los Angeles Times, Cavill said: "There’s a wonderful opportunity to tell the Superman story,” Cavill said. “Now there is a fantastic chance to show Superman in his full colors and tell a very complex, character-driven movie that is based on story and have that wonderful sensation of hope and happiness. A feel-good movie with lessons laced in there as well."
He then went on to share that both he and director Joss Whedon saw eye-to-eye on many aspects of Superman during the reshoots. "I’ve always enjoyed the traditional, very classic view on Superman in the comic books," Cavill said. "I think there’s an enormous complexity to that character. I know when I was working with Joss he and I saw eye-to-eye on some of the aspects of Superman. That paragon of hope. That ideal. That wonderful feeling of, ‘Oh, good, Superman’s here!’ I have also developed a very personal and protective relationship over this character, and it was just lovely to have the opportunity to smile and feel good."
Cavill was contracted for a total of four DC Films when he signed on to play Superman, so here's hoping he gets to portray the Man Of Steel he really wants the next time we see him. Until then, we highly recommend you check out Justice League in theatres now.
