Henry Cavill has hinted that he’s going to have a major say in his upcoming projects and will be able to navigate more creative freedom than ever.
The British actor has never been one to just stick to the script and function mechanically, and time and again he has talked about the same, explaining how he is rather fond of imparting his own vision and ideas to the roles he plays. And although he has often faced certain issues when it comes to exercising said control over his projects, the Man of Steel star has now revealed that things are about to change as he moves forward in his career with new opportunities.
Now that the Dawn of Justice star has finally put his cape back on and returned to the DC Universe as the mighty Superman, a Man of Steel sequel isn’t too far away in the future. And with the actor being able to have more creative control over his superhero character, as he remarked, the project is going to be all the more hyped now.
Henry Cavill will finally be able to bring his creativity to the table
Henry Cavill has always been one for the imagination but was seldom granted access to bring his visions to life with little or no creative control in his hands. But it looks like things are about to take a turn for the better concerning his future projects, as the Enola Holmes star claims that he is now going to be able to work without any restrictions impeding him.
Cavill recently made an appearance on the video series by Deadline titled The Film That Lit My Fuse, wherein he broke the news about his future projects taking off with him being able to pitch his own ideas and opinions instead of working in a monotonous fashion.
“I think I’m only starting to do that now,” Cavill said in response to the question about being able to exercise creative control over his roles.
“I think that will happen in my next chapter, the chapter which we’re opening at this stage. Up until now, I’ve had the wonderful opportunity to work with the likes of Matthew Vaughn and Guy Ritchie and [Christopher] Macquarie, and others. But I think this next chapter is when I finally get to just speak in my own language and to be there from the beginning of the creative process, from the birth of every idea into the realization, into its culmination on the screen.”
Cavill recently announced his departure from the fantasy/adventure Netflix series, The Witcher, after playing the role of Geralt of Rivia for three seasons, and according to sources, the central reason behind his leaving the show was the number of limitations and differences he was facing with the showrunners. Perhaps James Gunn realized it was in everyone’s best interest if Cavill was able to take over the reins like he deserves, lest they lose Superman too.
Henry Cavill is thankful for his partner’s unending support
The Cold Light of Day star also talked about just how grateful he is for all the love and support he receives from his family and significant other, Natalie Viscuso, and how they play a major role in the growth of his career.
“It’s turning to your family, to those who know you best, and to who you know best as well, so you can tell when they’re lying. They say things like, ‘You did a really good job there’, and it’s sincere.”
Cavill proudly admitted to the fact that his parents’ approval still matters all the same to him, and also acknowledged his long-term partner, Natalie, claiming she has been a monumental “support system” to him and has helped him see the bigger picture with regard to a lot of things.
“I think lately my partner, Natalie, she has had that … She has been an incredible support system for me and really opened my eyes to a lot of things.”
The couple has been together for over a year now, and although they choose to keep most of their relationship private from the prying eyes of social media, both Cavill and Viscuso are extremely happy with each other.
Cavill will soon be appearing on the big screens as Superman with a Man of Steel 2 reportedly in the works.
