Henry Cavill sat down with Deadline after it was officially confirmed he would be playing Superman again in an upcoming DC live-action film, following his brief cameo in Black Adam. While the actor made it clear that the role was very important to him, he revealed that it was also important to him to let go of things that aren’t in his power to change.
“As an actor you have to learn that no matter what you think, no matter what your performance was, no matter what factors were totally out of your control, no matter how the audience is feeling, there are things that are out of your control,” Cavill explained. It was something I had to hold onto very gently in my heart because I didn’t know if I would have the chance to play it again.”
While it’s entirely understandable that Cavill would want to hope the role would return to him despite factors beyond his control, fans probably weren’t aware of the uproar that holding on to that bit of hope caused in the performer. “It was very important to get that opportunity again and I’m very, very happy and very privileged to have that opportunity now,” concluded Cavill.
Well, it certainly sounds like the actor is happy to be donning the iconic Superman suit again, and fans can no doubt see him one more time on the big screen.
