Actor Henry Cavill has recently broken his silence on his involvement with Warner Bros., DC and the character of Superman.

With all the chatter about the Snyder cut of Justice League, Henry Cavill has added a bit more fuel to the fandom fire by stating he isn’t yet done playing the role of the Kryptonian hero.

Making his debut in 2013’s Man of Steel, Cavill received mixed reviews for his portrayal of Superman. A lot of comments claimed he didn’t smile enough or wasn’t as optimistic as previous iterations, but there is also the understanding that those decisions stem from the writing and less-so from Cavill.

Cavill returned to the role for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016, starring opposite Ben Affleck as Bruce Wayne/Batman. The two duked it out on-screen before teaming up with Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot) to take down Doomsday where Superman paid with his life. His death was short-lived, however, as he was resurrected in 2017’s Justice League by the team.

Justice League didn’t perform as expected and threw a massive wrench into the gears at DC. Affleck left the role of Batman, Ray Fisher’s Cyborg film was put on hold indefinitely and Ezra Miller’s Flash movie was rewritten numerous times and had directors coming and going for months. The only two movies to push forward from Justice League were Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman and James Wan’s Aquaman.

Cavill’s involvement post-League was up in the air, with some outlets reporting he was done, others saying he wasn’t, and Cavill posted cryptic messages and images to Instagram.

In the cover story for December’s Men’s Health, Cavill said, “The cape is in the closet. It’s still mine. I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honest of the character I wasn’t to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”

Warner Bros. Pictures and DC have not yet announced any plans for a sequel to Man of Steel with Cavill.

Henry Cavill will next appear on Netflix’s The Witcher series which premieres on Dec. 20. ■

Upcoming movie trailers

What movie trailers will release this week.

The week of Dec. 2 will see a slew of movie trailers hitting the internet.

With the week now in full swing, we have three confirmed trailers hitting the internet this week with one that is strongly rumoured to be releasing tomorrow (Dec. 3).

BLACK WIDOW

The first one being the rumoured one, the teaser trailer for Marvel Studios’ Black Widow is expected to release on Dec. 3. Footage had debuted for the fans in attendance at San Diego Comic Con back in the summer, and with Star Wars hitting theatres soon, you can bet that Disney will want to promote their next big Marvel film alongside their Christmas box office behemoth.

NO TIME TO DIE

The next James Bond film, No Time To Die, brings Daneil Craig back to the role of Bond for one last outing. Director Sam Mendes has given up the directorial reigns to Cary Fukunaga after Spectre turned out to be a lacklustre film which certainly stuck out as the Bond film before that one, Skyfall, is considered one of the best Bond films. The teaser for No Time To Die premieres on Wednesday, Dec. 4.

BIRDS OF PREY, OR THE FANTABULOUS EMANCIPATION OF ONE HARLEY QUINN

Having already received the teaser trailer for the film back in Sept., Warner Bros. is looking to amp up the marketing for the film since it will open in theatres in Feb. 2020. It was recently confirmed that the film will have an R-rating (as will James Gunn Suicide Squad sequel) so whether or not we’ll see any of the R-rated content in this trailer is up for debate.

WONDER WOMAN 1984

The sequel to the first Wonder Woman follows Diana Prince in the year 1984, and frankly, not much else is known about the film’s plot. We know Chris Pine is back as Steve Trevor and Kristen Wiig will play Cheetah, but a lot of the more juicy details are being kept under wraps. WW84 is the only other film to feature one of the members of the Justice League in a post-Justice League era of DC and Warner Bros. The teaser for WW84 is expected to premiere during the weekend alongside Birds of Prey at CCXP (Brazilian Comic Con) so a specific date and time is not yet locked. ■
