It has been months since Henry Cavill shocked the world when he announced he would no longer be playing the Man of Steel. The decision was a major shock for the entire DC fandom because of two reasons. Firstly, it was one of the greatest roles by the actor. Secondly, Cavill had just returned to DC after years for the Dwayne Johnson starrer Black Adam. Despite all these months that have passed since he bid farewell to the role, it is still a shock for the fans because they knew well enough that Cavill wanted to continue in the role. And one of the actor’s previous interviews proves that the actor always wanted to stick to playing Superman.
There have been a few actors who play their roles in such a flawless manner that the audience keeps demanding to see more of them. Fitting the description was Henry Cavill as Superman. The actor loved playing the role of Man of Steel as much as the audience enjoyed watching him. And a few years ago, the British actor expressed his fondness and revealed his wish to continue playing Superman when he appeared in an interview with Patrick Stewart for Variety in their Actors to Actor series.
During the interview, Cavill spoke, “I hope I get to play more of Superman in years to come.”
