As controversial as it gets when it comes to the comic book films DC puts out, many can agree that Man of Steel was one of the best. Being Henry Cavill’s debut as Superman, he killed it. It’s been 5 years since Zack Snyder’s movie hit theaters and we still have no solid confirmation on a sequel, but Superman himself just put out a bit of hope.
Henry Cavill was at CinemaCon for his upcoming film Mission Impossible: Fallout, where he was then asked about what was going on for a sequel to Man of Steel. Collider asked about his DC contract as well as the sequel and Cavill said the following:
I’m having a lot of conversations, behind-the-scenes, with certain people and we will hopefully be having conversations with other people who are also behind-the-scenes to make things start happening. It is very much in my desire to do a Man of Steel 2, a direct sequel to Man of Steel, and there is a whole bunch of Superman story that I want to tell. There is a whole style of Superman’s character that I’m very keen to tell and I’m looking forward to the opportunity.
It’s nice to know that Cavill is on our side when it comes to a Man of Steel sequel. Cavill loves the character just as much as we do and it really shows in his portrayal. There’s tons of subject matter to cover and I really hope that we see Cavill play it for years to come. After Steve Weintraub of Collider asked him about his contract, Cavill looked off camera and smiled to someone so maybe there’s something going on that Cavill just can’t yet release any information on. After that, he says that regardless of how many films are left on his contract, he wants to keep playing the character.
Cavill has proved time and time again that he is the best Superman we can get. Although the movies Batman v. Superman and Justice League weren’t the best, Cavill’s acting stood out as a beacon of hope for the future of DC films. Man of Steel 2 is something that I’m sure will happen, and when it does, it will blow people away.
