The DCEU really did undermine the importance of Henry Cavill’s Superman, didn’t it? The same was also vivid with the way fans had been disappointed to learn of Cavill’s long period of absence and the possibility of him not returning to DC.

However, things are different right now and fans are almost this close to getting their unheard prayers finally answered with the rumors of Cavill’s comeback to the franchise.

But just because the audience seemed to have moved past such mishaps in the past, doesn’t necessarily mean so has the actor.

Did Henry Cavill take a hit at DC while talking about Enola Holmes 2?

Henry Cavill recently opened up about his return as Sherlock Holmes to the second part of the mystery/crime movie, Enola Holmes in an interview with Total Film. 

While talking about Enola Holmes 2, the British actor explained how his return to the sequel had been a little precarious before the movie had officially been in the works. He acknowledged Millie Bobby Brown, his co-star who plays his younger sister Enola, and appreciated her “fantastic energy”  that he had witnessed during the first film.

However, the Man of Steel actor also remarked that his amazing crew members weren’t motivated enough to solidify his return to Enola Holmes 2. “It’s important to get things right,” he said. “It’s important to make sure the tone of things is not lost in the potential excitement of franchises and universes.” 

When asked about the possibility of yet another Enola Holmes film, The Witcher star gave his two cents on the topic, claiming how one can never be too sure about the expansion of a particular franchise.

“I have experience with franchises going places and going quiet, and other franchises popping up and becoming exciting,” he pointed. “It’s all about the decision-making up top and everything else that goes with it. I’m merely the hired work.”

Cavill might not have said anything outright about his dissent towards the DCEU for fumbling with Superman. But he didn’t need to either. The implicit undertone in his comments might as well have been a declaration of his disappointment with the franchise.

Henry Cavill’s role in Enola Holmes 2

In the first film, Sherlock Holmes is portrayed to be the brother of Enola, the character played by Millie Bobby Brown. And in the film, the spotlight had been focused relatively lesser on the detective/elder brother. However, Cavill explained that they’re going to be brushing up on his role more rigorously in the upcoming sequel.
