Henry Cavill on a newer version of Superman

Although he never mentioned anything explicitly, rumors are such that the British A-lister will be back in the house anytime soon. Henry started off by representing the principles and ideologies that Superman in the movie follows. He emphasized the fact that “Superman represented everything that is good about mankind, despite the fact that mankind might not be good to her.” 

He fleshed out the part where his character killed the only remnant of his species displaying his stance with the good. However, Henry then pressed on making a wiser version of Superman who will not repeat the mistakes his past self had committed. To top it all was the abstinence from killings or collateral damages. Stating the reasons that “he(Superman) has now experienced all of it” Henry then aimed to build a more incredible and “wiser version” of Superman. 

Cavill then expressed his keenness on extracting out the earlier or past life of his character. Pointing out the turn of events with his direct combat with Batman in the 2016 film, he talked about how he wanted to show the actual hope and the true beacon of life his character was. Rather than going into a path of darkness followed by redemption, he first wanted to express the back history of his life completely.
