Henry Cavill says playing Superman is a responsibility that goes beyond movies



After years without wearing the Superman costume, Henry Cavill reprized the role in the post-credits “Black Adam” scene, teasing his future in the DCU.

And, while appearing on the Happy Sad Confused podcast (via Comic Book), the star explained that wearing Superman’s cape is a big responsibility, something that goes far beyond the movies.

In his statement, Cavill said he has a lot of love for his fans and the character represents goodness in the world.

“I learned a lot from Superman. I’ve been playing this character for too long to understand what he means. When you play a character like that, you feel as responsible to the audience as you do to the camera. Wearing this cape has taught me so much about myself and the world, as well as the power of important characters like Superman and what he means to so many people.

Previously, Cavill took to Instagram today to officially confirm his plans to return as ‘Superman’, sharing a new image of himself in costume.

Cavill said his appearance in “Black Adam” is just the beginning.

“The image you see in this post and what you saw in Black Adam is just a little taste of what’s to come,” Cavill said. “There’s a lot to be thankful for, and I’ll get to that in time, but most of all I wanted to thank you. Thank you for your support and your patience. I promise you will be rewarded.

Recalling that “Man of Steel 2” is already in development at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Apparently, the sequel was only stuck in limbo because of former DC Studios boss Walter Hamada not wanting the actor back.

Hamada, a four-year-old DC Films executive who is now leaving, was largely responsible for leaving Cavill’s iteration of the hero “in the fridge,” according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hamada had his own plans for the franchise, one of them involving the introduction of an alternate version, scripted by Ta-Nehisi Coates, and therefore wanted no Superman involvement in Black Adam, but those plans have recently changed. .

By all accounts, the change of command was instrumental in achieving this goal, including David Zaslav (CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery) and Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy (Chairmen of Warner Bros. Pictures). All three had this “intense desire” to take over Cavill’s iteration.

However, Dwayne Johnson and Seven Bucks Productions are really responsible for Cavill’s return. The star and her brand, one of the most influential in Hollywood today, have been pushing for this to happen for years.

After Hamada’s negative responses, Johnson decided to contact De Luca and Abdy directly, who gave a thumbs up. An intense round of negotiations took place before Labor Day, a deadline imposed by the studio, and everything worked out.
