Two years after departing the role, Henry Cavill is in talks to once again portray Clark Kent/Superman in films based on DC Comics, insiders with knowledge of the situation told TheWrap.
The extent of Cavill’s return to the role — whether just for additional work to be done for the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” or for appearances in future films — has not been disclosed.
This is great news. Henry Cavill is and was a fantastic Superman who was dramatically let down by the movies he was given (see also Ben Affleck’s Batman), and I think the world has seen that between his turns in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible – Fallout and The Witcher, that Cavill is a true star.
I look forward to them getting it right this time.
