After the canning of Man of Steel 2, is Henry Cavill returning to Netflix? The actor had everyone on their toes when he announced the making of Man of Steel 2. But after months of speculations, the actor formally announced that WB’s future plans do not include him. While that left many people disheartened, there was one question. Where can we expect to see Henry Cavill again?
The actor left his leading show The Witcher, leaving Liam Hemsworth to replace him. While he may not return to that show, there is another show that could bring Cavill back to Netflix. The prequel to David Fincher’s Chinatown could show the actor in a new light.
How Henry Cavill could return to the series with David Fincher’s prequel of China town
While WB’s door may have closed for Henry Cavill for good, he could return to Netflix with another series. As per giantfreakinrobot, Cavill is talking with Fincher about making a prequel series on Netflix. The original movie was made in 1974 starring Faye Dunaway and Jack Nicholson. We can expect to see Cavill recreating the lead role of J.J. Gittes, donning a coat and a hat. If the role is confirmed, it would be a major step ahead for the project. In an attempt to stay as close to the original as possible, Robert Townes will be returning to write the prequel as well.
The original movie was based in the 20th century, revolving around the water right in South Carolina, leading to the eventual formation of Los Angles. Gittes is hired by a woman to find out whether her husband is cheating on her, but the journey takes him on a path that will expose corruption, deceit, and murder. As for Henry Cavill’s prequel, it may focus on the adventures of the detective from before these events or be connected to the story.
While DC looks for a younger Superman, there is no shortage of offers for the former The Witcher actor. Would you like to see Henry Cavill return to Netflix and work along with David Fincher? Put your thoughts in the comments.
