Henry Cavill responds to the Marvel rumors of him possibly playing Captain Britain as the actor is asked if he would ever switch sides, from DC to the MCU.
Previous rumors have offered that both Henry Cavill and Dwayne Johnson have wanted Marvel roles (Dwayne Johnson's former wife and business partner manages Henry Cavill), so THR asked about a potential Marvel role where Cavill said it would be fun to do:
“I’m never going to say a Marvel character that is already being played by someone else …”
“… because everyone’s doing such an amazing job. However, I have the internet and I have seen the various rumors about Captain Britain and that would be loads of fun to do a cool, modernized version of that — like the way they modernized Captain America. There’s something fun about that, and I do love being British.”
Regarding playing Superman, Henry Cavill told THR that he would love the opportunity to play the Man of Steel again (also talks more about Supes here and James Bond):
“There is still a lot of storytelling for me to do as a Superman, and I would absolutely love the opportunity,” Cavill says. “The killing of Zod gave a reason for the character never to kill again. Superman falling to the ground and screaming afterward — I don’t think that was originally in the script, but I wanted to show the pain he had. I did far more emotional takes they didn’t choose; tears were happening. He just killed the last remaining member of his species. That’s the choice he made in that moment, and he’ll never do that again. There’s an opportunity for growth after that, to explore the psyche of Superman as a deep, seemingly invulnerable god-like being but with real feeling on the inside. As I always say, ‘The cape is still in the closet.'”
Recent rumors surrounding Dwayne Johnson have offered that while The Rock filmed DC's Black Adam, that Johnson visited Marvel's Black Panther 2 set many times.
