Superman actor Henry Cavill thinks there’s still a chance for the DCEU to explore the character. When it comes to fictional/comic characters, Clark Kent aka Superman is one of the few characters that are known to all. Over the years, many actors have got the chance to play the character and the latest in line is Henry Cavill who has played Superman rather graciously. But of course, you cannot please everyone. Recently, his future as Clark Kent is a little bleak but the actor has commented on a possibility. He still thinks that Superman’s psyche can be explored in the DCEU, especially after the events of Man of Steel. Check it out!
Henry Cavill Wants DCEU To Explore Superman
For Henry Cavill, his time as the Krypton hero has been rather short and bumpy. His debut was in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel and he continued to reprise the role in movies like BvS and Justice League. Now, we do not know where he stands as Superman in the DCEU. But the actor highly believes that there is still cope for the character and that too more on a psychological level. While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, he said:
“There is still a lot of storytelling for me to do as a Superman, and I would absolutely love the opportunity. The killing of Zod gave a reason for the character never to kill again. Superman falling to the ground and screaming afterwards — I don’t think that was originally in the script, but I wanted to show the pain he had. I did far more emotional takes they didn’t choose; tears were happening. He just killed the last remaining member of his species. That’s the choice he made at that moment, and he’ll never do that again. There’s an opportunity for growth after that, to explore the psyche of Superman as a deep, seemingly invulnerable god-like being but with a real feeling on the inside. As I always say, ‘The cape is still in the closet.’”
Cavill is definitely right and his approach is worth noticing. For Superman, killing is not even the last resort. It is totally off of the list but his final call in Man of Steel defined him as a hero. If Cavill was to return to the DCEU, then they can easily dwell on this and explore Superman for the hero he is and how developed over the years. The majority of the DCEU fans believe that Cavill should return as Superman, what do you think about this?
