Superman Actor Henry Cavill Admits ‘Justice League’ Movie ‘Didn’t Work’

Henry Cavill shared his thoughts on his three appearances as Superman from Man of Steel to Justice League.

British actor Henry Cavill made his first appearance as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel and while the film received mixed reviews from audiences, it launched the DC Extended Universe that resulted in the actor reprising the role in Batman v Superman and Justice League. Although Henry Cavill’s take on Superman has more than its fair share of supporters, the response to Batman v Superman and Justice League was equally as mixed as his first appearance, if not more.

During an interview with Men’s Health, Henry Cavill was asked about his thoughts on Man of Steel, a film that was not well-received by many who were disappointed by its darker take on Superman. However, Henry Cavill referred to Man of Steel as a “great starting point” and noted that he would not change anything about his debut as Superman if given the chance:

“A great starting point. If I were to go back, I don’t think I’d change anything.”

For his second appearance as Superman, Henry Cavill co-starred with Ben Affleck in Zack Snyder’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, which marked the latter actor’s debut as the Caped Crusader. While reflecting on Batman v Superman, Henry Cavill indicated that he believes it works less as a Superman movie and better as a Batman film due to its dark tone:

“Very much a Batman movie. And I think that realm of darkness is great for a Batman movie.”

Henry Cavill most recently appeared as Superman in Justice League, which underwent a tumultuous production due to extensive reshoots under a new director and problems caused by Paramount refusing to let Henry Cavill shave the mustache he grew for Mission: Impossible – Fallout. When reflecting on Justice League, which underperformed at the box office and prompted Warner Bros. to reassess its plans for DC Films, Henry Cavill simply admitted, “It didn’t work.”

Henry Cavill’s future as Superman is currently in doubt amid reports on contentious contract negotiations and Warner Bros. and DC planning to focus their efforts on introducing Supergirl. While his planned Superman cameo in Zachary Levi’s Shazam! was cut after negotiations to reprise his role fell through, Henry Cavill recently stated that he has not given up on playing the character.

Here is the official synopsis for Justice League:

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.

Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD.
