Having previously featured in 2013’s Man of Steel, Cavill’s Superman has already had the privilege of carrying a DC universe film all on his own. Having just shared the screen with Ben Affleck‘s Batman however, the role has seemingly been pushed into the background by Warner Bros. as it makes way for other solo DC movies like Wonder Woman and Aquaman. Of course, he will play a major role in the studio’s upcoming The Justice League: Part One, but nothing has been offered in the way of a more direct sequel to his first outing.
When they were asked about the subject, Snyder stated he would be interested if a quality script was provided and Cavill, while saying he was “very keen” about such a project, said it would depend on the overall success of Batman v Superman:
I think if we can get a good script, it would be great to get a standalone Superman movie. I think that would be fun to do…Part of the reason we didn’t announce a standalone superhero movie is to support some of the event of [Batman v Superman]. ”
When asked the same question, Henry Cavill replied, “I do believe it depends on the success of this movie. If this goes well then we can start to negotiate with Warner Bros. for a standalone Superman movie. But they’ve got their plans set out for other stuff and Justice Leagues and various other movies, so it’s about finding the time, really. It’s something that I would be very keen to do.”
