Ben Affleck and Gal Gadot’s original deals had them signed up for three movies in the DC Films Universe, but it sounds like Henry Cavill signed up for four. In an interview with the LA Times, Cavill, who has already appeared in three movies, confirmed that he has another movie left on his contract and is excited to tell Superman’s story again.
“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.”
Cavill said that he and Justice League director Joss Whedon really saw eye-to-eye on certain 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.”
Justice League didn’t have a strong weekend at the box office, but hopefully that won’t affect Cavill’s time as Superman. Man of Steel 2 is long overdue and Cavill is great in the role!
