Will he or won’t he? Even Henry Cavill is amazed by the number of rumors about whether or not he will return to the role of Superman.
It seems to be the internet’s favorite topic to speculate on: Whether or not Cavill will return to DC films as Superman. Every week seems to bring us some new form of rumors, and even Cavill has been amazed by them.
“They get wilder and wilder by the day. The amount of speculation, the stuff I read on the Internet, is extraordinary and sometimes frustrating,” Cavill recently told Variety when asked about the wildest rumors of his return as Superman.
“It’s when you see people stating stuff as fact. Like, “No, that’s not the case. That hasn’t happened, and that conversation isn’t happening.” But the important thing is that people are excited about it, and I think it’s important to be excited about a character like Superman.” Cavill went on to add, “Superman is a fantastic character. If people are chatting about it, and even if they’re making stuff up, it’s okay, because that means they want to see the character again. And in an ideal world, I would absolutely love to play the character again.”
With all this frustration, though, has he ever left a comment, even if it was anonymous? “I’m not going to lie; I’ve been very tempted, but there’s something about that, that feels deeply immoral.” Cavill went on to explain, “When it’s about Superman, and if I’m representing Superman, it just feels like the wrong thing to do. I’m just going to let this all play out. Me saying something isn’t going to make a difference. What does it really matter? One day, people will know the truth, and if they don’t know it now, it’s okay.”
Cavill can currently be seen in season 1 of The Witcher on Netflix.
