There’s been a lot of talk out there about Henry Cavill returning to the Superman role in some way, but we haven’t heard from the Man of Steel himself regarding those rumors just yet.
Variety had him on their “Big Ticket” podcast and asked him about how there seems to be a new rumor every day about him coming back as Superman:
They get wilder and wilder by the day. The amount of speculation, the stuff I read on the Internet, is extraordinary and sometimes frustrating. It’s when you see people stating stuff as fact. Like, “No, that’s not the case. That hasn’t happened, and that conversation isn’t happening.” But the important thing is that people are excited about it, and I think it’s important to be excited about a character like Superman. Superman is a fantastic character. If people are chatting about it, and even if they’re making stuff up, it’s okay, because that means they want to see the character again. And in an ideal world, I would absolutely love to play the character again.Variety, July 2nd 2020
Of course this lines up with what he told Patrick Stewart last week, when he said he hopes he can play Superman for years to come. Even if there’s nothing official set now, all of the chatter about his return in some way means it could happen at some point in the future.. We can only hope that WB decides to give him a new solo movie in addition to whatever cameo plans they have.
