Henry Cavill Finally Weighs In on the Snyder Cut of 'Justice League'

Henry Cavill is speaking out with his thoughts on the upcoming “Snyder Cut” of the movie Justice League.

If you weren’t aware, Zack Snyder was the original director on the DC Comics movie Justice League, but he had to drop out of the project in the middle of filming due to a family emergency. Joss Whedon stepped in to finish the film, which reportedly included plenty of rewrites and a new direction for the story. (One of the Justice League stars just spoke out with claims of abuse from Whedon)

Now, Snyder is getting his chance to release his version of the film thanks to HBO Max. It’s been rumored that the Snyder Cut might be released as a series or just one, long, epic film.

“With everything that has happened this year, with the lockdown and cinemas having to close and streaming services now being how we are getting our entertainment, it’s not really a surprise. I think it’s one of those things where it’s an opportunity, and I think it’s great that Zack has an opportunity to finally release his vision of [Justice League] and I think that’s really important for a storyteller and a filmmaker. When that doesn’t happen, it’s always a sad occasion. And now Zack has the opportunity, and I’m excited to watch it,” Henry told Variety.

Henry was also asked about the rumors circling about him returning to play Superman in the future.

“They get wilder and wilder by the day. The amount of speculation, the stuff I read on the Internet, is extraordinary and sometimes frustrating. It’s when you see people stating stuff as fact,” Henry said. “Like, ‘No, that’s not the case. That hasn’t happened, and that conversation isn’t happening.’ But the important thing is that people are excited about it, and I think it’s important to be excited about a character like Superman. Superman is a fantastic character. If people are chatting about it, and even if they’re making stuff up, it’s okay, because that means they want to see the character again. And in an ideal world, I would absolutely love to play the character again.”

Henry did say something recently that gave fans a lot of hope for the future of the movies!
