Henry Cavill is excited to be back as an “enormously joyful Superman” and is happy to wear the Man of Steel cape again.
The actor appeared Wednesday night in an hour-long interview with Josh Horowitz at 92nd Street Y where he discussed his return.
Original article continues:
“How you guys expressed it is exactly how I feel,” Cavill told the crowd after they erupted in applause. “The character means so much to me. It’s been five years now, and quite rightly, otherwise I probably shouldn’t deserve to wear the cape but I never gave up hope and it’s amazing to be here now talking about it again.”
Cavill continued, “There is such a bright future ahead for the character. I’m so excited to tell a story with an enormously joyful Superman.”
While Henry is returning as Superman, he didn’t divulge any of the super secrets and said they will become known in time, but he did discuss putting the suit back on for the Black Adam mid-credits scene.
“It was a very powerful moment for me. I wasn’t too sure how it’s going to feel, whether it’s going to be ‘cool, back in the suit’ or whether it was going to be something which was very emotionally connective because I put the Man of Steel suit back on,” he said.
“I chose that one in particular because of the nostalgia attached to the suit, and it was incredibly important to me to just be standing and enjoying that moment. Yeah, that is one of the top moments in my career. It feels great to have the opportunity to wear it again,” Cavill offered.
Following the Black Adam appearance, it is rumored Henry Cavill appear in next year’s The Flash movie.
It has also been reported that Man of Steel 2 is in early development as it is said Charles Roven is producing and a search is underway for writers.
