Why Henry Cavill Is Perfect To Bring Highlander to Life? Director Reveals Why ‘The Witcher’ Actor Is THE Actor for the Project

If the world had to choose one celebrity to save them, many, including us, would choose Henry Cavill in a heartbeat. There is something about the British actor that makes you feel assured about your safety. Maybe that’s why he has played some of the biggest superheroes in the history of cinema. And he is not done yet.

Previously it was announced that Cavill would play Highlander in the reboot of the hit 1986 franchise. And it looks like the director of the new film Chad Stahelski himself, feels only Henry can bring the role to life for multiple reasons. Let us see why Chad finds Henry Cavill worthy of the title of Connor MacLeod.

Chad Stahelski believes in Henry Cavill for the role of Highlander

Last year, the world got to know that Henry Cavill, star of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, was in early discussions to feature in a new Highlander film. The franchise has been dormant for years. But roles such as Enola Holmes and The Witcher have demonstrated the British actor’s command of the action and fantasy genres.

Chad Stahelski, the director of John Wick, is likely to direct the film. The reboot is going to be a modern version of Connor MacLeod’s centuries-long rivalry with his fellow strong immortals. In a recent interview, the director discussed why he thought Henry was the best candidate for the part.

“It’s not just about muscles and brooding. I think he’s got an incredible range and I think he’d bring something very special. And his enthusiasm has been amazing in it.” he said. Further continuing, the director said that the film is in the last few stages of production. And that things are looking extremely promising for the reboot.

So, while nothing is certain, it looks like the Highlander is on the right track. Cavill is still working on The Witcher, and while it’s unlikely, he’ll return as Superman, portraying the Highlander might be a fantastic part for him, especially with Stahelski’s own action skills sure to help take things to the next level.

What are your thoughts on Cavill possibly appearing in a Highlander reboot?

    For all the reasons and more , Henry Cavill would be a great addition to my favourite franchise. I’d rather see him in another spin off like Adrian Paul, to create his own highlander character, but a remake will do. Cavill has a way of becoming the character.
