Henry Cavill Says He’s Still Superman

Man of Steel - Superman

Henry Cavill's status as Clark Kent, AKA Superman, would seem to be very much up in the air of late. Warner Bros. and DC have no current solid plans for a new standalone Supes film, and he wasn't used for the (spoiler alert) the quick Kal-El cameo in Shazam!. Yet according to the man himself, he's still very much in the role.

"The cape is in the closet," Cavill tells Men's Health as part of a sprawling interview about his career in general and Netflix's The Witcher in particular. "It’s still mine."

And he's not done, as later in the article he returns to the point: "I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on," Cavill says of the rumours that his time in the suit is over. "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 honesty of the character I want 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." His Mission: Impossible – Fallout moustache, currently in hiding, was not available for comment.

We will indeed see. For more from Cavill, head to the Men's Health site. And The Witcher arrives on Netflix on 20 December, with a second season already ordered.
