Henry Cavill Reveals If He's Done Playing Superman

Henry Cavill Reveals If He's Done Playing Superman

Henry Cavill is looking so good on the cover of Men’s Health magazine’s December 2019 issue, on newsstands November 26.

Here’s what the 36-year-old The Witcher star had to share with the mag..

On reprising his three-time role as Superman: “The cape is in the closet. It’s still mine.”

On speculation that his time in the cape is finished: “I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honest of the character I wasn’t to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”

On his most infamous tryout, auditioning for the role of James Bond in the mid-‘00s: “I probably could have prepared better. I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, ‘Looking a little chubby there, Henry.’ I didn’t know how to train or diet. And I’m glad Martin said something, because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better.”

On missing out in leading roles in Tristan + Isolde and Twilight: “I wasn’t ecstatic about not getting these things, but I was so used to disappointment from the acting business, and also from boarding school. ‘No, you’re not good enough’ – that wasn’t anything new to me.”
