I’ve never liked Ezra Miller – even before he attacked that girl – so that’s probably my problem, I like Jason Momoa and he clearly likes his role, but he’s not playing Aquaman, he’s playing some surfer dude who happens to have fish powers. Gal Gadot is fine, but she yells too much whenever she lunges into a fight (and earnestly sings into a camera with the rest of her friends), but above all of them is Henry Cavill – and he’s perfect in everything.
He’s the eighth wonder of the world, isn’t he? Just a standup guy who’s offensively dashing, a pretty good actor and is rivalled only by Granit Xhaka for people who look like Superman.
That’s why I’m pretty excited to hear that Henry Cavill is in talks to return as Superman in upcoming DC films. For now, this doesn’t mean that there will be a Man of Steel 2 or anything like that, but the idea is that he will show up in the likes of Shazam 2 and Aquaman 2 and if they go well, then Warner Bros. will start thinking about his own standalone sequel.
The report comes from Deadline, who also assure us that these cameos will not be in the likes of Wonder Woman 1984, The Suicide Squad, or The Batman.
This does make sense when you think about it, since Cavill’s character did show up at the end of Shazam, albeit played by a different person and only from the neck-down.
With Netflix’s The Witcher going down a storm absolutely everywhere, it will be difficult for Warner Bros. to find some time in Cavill’s busy schedule, but once they do and they have him in a non-Zack Snyder film, then he may just capture our hearts again.
We’ll keep you updated.
