Since 2013 actor Henry Cavill has played the iconic superhero Superman. Debuting in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and then following it up in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice and then Justice League. Since last fall there have been rumors about his status as Clark Kent. Especially now that his co-star in two of the DCEU films, Ben Affleck is officially out as the Dark Knight. To this day Cavill and the studio are yet to confirm or deny it.
But this has not stopped Cavill of having fun with the situation. Last year via his Instagram account Cavill posted a video with him holding a Superman figure, but gave no comment. Recently he also posted an image of him holding his version of a trident congratulating his Justice League co-star Jason Momoa and director James Wan for the success of Aquaman. Over the weekend he posted another image with his DCEU character, check it out below!
Currently Henry is in Budapest to film the Netflix series, The Witcher, where he will play the role of Geralt of Rivia. As you can see by his post above where he posed next to a waxwork figure of his comic book character, he may be in better shape now then when he played the Man of Steel. His caption read “I don’t always workout, but when I do. I workout with Superman”.
Currently he is not scheduled to appear in any DCEU films, although it was rumored that he may have had a cameo appearance in the upcoming SHAZAM! film. The last we had heard about his status as Superman was from Momoa, who told Entertainment Tonight during the premiere of Aquaman that, “I just talked to Henry, he’s absolutely not [done playing Superman]… He loves the character. He’s not. One hundred percent.” This image also may give us a hint that he is still committed to the character, although it’s probably not up to him at this point. We know that the studios are working hard to try and get another Superman film going as it had been reported that they had offered director James Gunn a Superman film before Suicide Squad.
Do you think that Henry Cavill is done as Superman? Or he just waiting on the next film? Let us know in the comment section below!
Netflix’s The Witcher is set to debut sometime this year.
