It is becoming a surreal couple of weeks for Warner Media. 1st the announcement that the ,Zack Snyder cut of Justice League will be coming to HBO Max then today the launching of the new streaming platform and now news has come out that Henry Cavill is in talks to put back on his bodysuit and cape as the man of steel for multiple DC movies.
The report was first released by THE WRAP, It is being reported that the full extent of Cavill’s return to the role — whether just for additional work to be done for the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of “Justice League” or for appearances in future films — has not been disclosed. This also includes a sequel to the Zack Snyder helmed MAN OF STEEL.
Now if you can recall, after the unsuccessful theatrical run of JUSTICE LEAGUE Warner Bros.went into sort of a dismantling and rebuilding mode. This was from leadership to was rethinking its overall strategy for DC Comics movies, moving away from the shared universe approach and toward standalone films.
A few months after Cavill departed his role, so did Batman actor Ben Affleck. Aflleck who was supposed to write, direct and star in the planned standalone THE BATMAN. The film has since been rewritten to focus on a younger Dark Knight and Robert Pattinson has since been cast in the role.
What are your thoughts on this and what do you think Cavill’s role will be.
