Henry Cavill is asked when Warner Bros. will release Man of Steel 2 or another Superman solo movie, and the actor’s response is perfect. Cavill first portrayed Clark Kent aka. Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel, which hit theaters in 2013 and soft-launched Warner Bros’ DC movie universe. Cavill reprised the role in Snyder’s Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, the film that officially kicked off the studio’s expansive comic book universe. At the end of Batman V Superman, Cavill’s superhero was killed by Doomsday and mourned by the heroes he left behind.
Then, Superman was resurrected in 2017’s Justice League, and teamed up with his fellow DC superheroes to take on Steppenwolf. However, since director Snyder departed the project and Joss Whedon was hired for the Justice League reshoots, the final film seemed to feature a different arc for Superman than what was originally intended. Despite Cavill’s Superman being a point of contention in the discussion surrounding Justice League, as well as the DC movie universe as a whole, fans still want to see him return for another solo film. Now, the actor responds hilariously to the question of when fans might get to see such a movie.
Even as the DC movie universe expands to include more superheroes like Jason Momoa’s Aquaman, Ezra Miller’s The Flash, Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck’s Batman, Cavill’s Superman has remained a beloved part. Undoubtedly, this is because Superman is a superhero who remains dear to many comic and movie fans, so they may be excited by the prospect of the Man of Steel returning for another solo outing. Thankfully for those fans, there have been a number of new rumors lately pertaining to Man of Steel 2, which may indicate the sequel is gaining some momentum behind the scenes at Warner Bros.
