A ‘Superman’ show is on the plate already!
After the debate over whether Henry Cavill will return to play Superman in the DCEU, Warner Bros. may be working on two new ‘Superman’ movies with the actor reprising his role.
It is not clear whether they will be direct sequels to Snyder’s ‘Justice League’ or carry completely different storylines. Does this mean that Henry Cavill’s demand for a solo ‘Superman’ show on HBO Max won’t be fulfilled?
But Cavill has been pushing so hard to star in a solo show! Has he been given two movies instead of a show or will things change in the future?
Why does Cavill want a solo show?
If you were to ask the fans, they would not want to wait any further to watch their favourite superhero return to the screens. People were infuriated that Cavill’s involvement in DCEU was minimized.
But the news of Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman for HBO Max has sent a wave of excitement among the fans. The actor has made perfectly clear that he wants to remain Superman for as long as he can.
Cavill once told Variety:
“I’ve always been a fan of Superman. With a character like that, you carry the mantle with you offset. When you meet children, children don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there’s a responsibility that comes with that. Because it is such a wonderful character, it’s actually a responsibility I’m happy to have, and I hope that I get to play more of Superman in years to come.”
In a nutshell, whether Henry Cavill returns as Superman on the big screen or HBO Max, he has definitely got the fans in his corner. Then why not give him his own ‘Superman’ show on HBO Max?
