Henry Cavill seemingly has got super candid with Kevin McCarthy during an interview to promote the upcoming first season of his fantasy-horror Netflix series The Witcher.
When asked by Kevin about the existence of a Snyder Cut of Justice League (a huge topic within the DC Comics fan community) Henry was upfront by saying he hasn’t seen an actual cut and doesn’t know if it exists in a completed form.
However, he’s indeed very much interested to return to the Superman role if a Man of Steel sequel was to be put together by the studio.
CAVILL: “I have not seen any Snyder Cut. I don’t know if anything that exists that is a ‘Snyder Cut’. I’m sure there is footage out there which is being pieced together over the years.”
“I’m always interested in to see how that stuff turns out but that is very much a chapter of my past. I would much rather talk about what is going to happen in the future. The future of Superman and how I can express that character from the comic books which ties in nicely with Man of Steel.”
“Man of Steel, I really like that movie. I’d like to be able to tell the story of where it was left at that point.”
When asked if we could see that movie, Cavill got a little coy.
CAVILL: “I can tell you nothing.”

Henry has expressed interest in returning to the role of Superman and while very interesting Warner Bros. hasn’t given a definitive answer on what they’ll be doing with the character.
Because of this, I wouldn’t get too excited by Cavill’s statements in these interviews.
A Supergirl movie has been in the works for a while now at the studio without any updates on a director, lead actress or production/release dates
There have also been reports for a while now of Michael B. Jordan being eyed for the role and the actor has suggested recently that his version could be Calvin Ellis, another incarnation of the DC Comics hero. Hinting that fans might find it difficult to accept him as the Clark Kent version of the character.
The Witcher has already been given a greenlight by Netflix for a second season which will begin shooting in London early next year.
There had also been rumblings that Cavill could be reprising his Mission: Impossible role in the upcoming sequels in flashbacks, as filming will also be taking place in the United Kingdom and Europe.
You can start watching The Witcher on December 20th on Netflix.
