Superman might have died in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but that won’t stop the character from returning in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Set to land in theatres later this week, Justice League will see Henry Cavill’s Superman resurrected, although we still don’t know how and why.
Henry Cavill’s version of Superman hasn’t had the easiest cinematic journey. Man of Steel was met with mixed feedback, and things didn’t get better for the character in Batman v Superman. With that said, fans still eagerly await the return of Superman in Justice League and in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly, Cavill revealed that the version of Superman we see in Justice League is the “true” interpretation of the character.
See what Cavill said below:
“Geoff [Johns] and I have been delving into the history of the character to get to the core of who Superman is. This is the first time we see the true Superman. The Superman who is confident, and sure, and full of hope and joy.”
Reviews for Justice League are still embargoed, but critics have been allowed to tweet out their initial reactions. So far, the responses have been mostly positive, and even though critics have stayed away from spoilers, many have teased Superman’s role in the film. If what we’re hearing is true, Cavill has finally been given the opportunity to portray the Superman we all know and love. I guess we’ll need to wait until Justice League is in theatres to find out for ourselves but luckily there are only a few days left.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
