Superman in the last series of DCEU shared: “It’s an interesting decision (when exploiting multiple versions of Superman). Superman is an icon, an ideal, not just a matter of skin color. This is a wonderful character that will live forever in our hearts. So why can’t we develop multiple Superman at the same time? Joaquin Phoenix also makes a top-notch Joker, right? DC has also released many different Superman series at the same time“.
Henry Cavill is always ready to put on Superman’s mantle one more time, despite the DCEU showing little interest in Man of Steel 2.

However, I’ve also read a lot of rumors regarding Captain Britain, and I’d be happy if I could take on and modernize the character, the same way Marvel did with Captain America. It’s definitely going to be an interesting project, and also I’d love to take on British roles“.
This is not impossible, because in 2017, Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige confirmed that he and his associates were looking for ways to bring Captain Britain into the MCU’s movie projects. Feige also said: “Many actors have contacted us and inquired about this role“And no matter when Marvel plans to exploit Captain Britain at any point, Henry Cavill will certainly always be one of the best options they can consider.
