Henry Cavill Felt Tempted To Comment On Superman Rumors

What would Superman do?

Henry Cavill admitted that he has felt tempted to respond to the various rumors of him returning as Superman under an alias online.

There have been many uncertainness in the DC Extended Universe so far, but Henry Cavill playing Superman has been one of the biggest in recent years. In 2018, it was reported that Cavill’s days as the Man of Steel were over after almost appearing in Shazam! for a cameo role. However, Cavill is now reportedly back in the mix to appear as Superman in multiple DC movies.

Nothing has been confirmed by Warner Bros. yet, but there continues to be a lot of rumors surrounding Henry Cavill’s Superman since his last appearance in the ill-fated Justice League movie. Cavill has touched on those Superman rumors, but Variety recently asked if he has ever felt tempted to respond to them online under an alias:

“I’m not going to lie; I’ve been very tempted, but there’s something about that, that feels deeply immoral. When it’s about Superman, and if I’m representing Superman, it just feels like the wrong thing to do. I’m just going to let this all play out. Me saying something isn’t going to make a difference. What does it really matter? One day, people will know the truth, and if they don’t know it now, it’s okay.”

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.
