Yesterday The Hollywood Reporter claimed that Henry Cavill was set to film new scenes as Superman for Zack Snyder’s version of “Justice League” next month. Interviews conducted for Cavill’s new Netflix film “Enola Holmes,” in which he plays the famed British detective Sherlock Holmes, appear to contradict that claim. However, these interviews may have been conducted prior to yesterday’s report, and therefore should be taken in context…
Speaking with Collider.com Cavill said, “Not shooting anything additional. No. It’s all stuff that has been already done. Obviously I don’t know how things are going to evolve and change and adapt depending on now a different length of movie and whatever may happen in post-production. Whatever lessons may be learned from what is it four years since Justice League came out? Four years’ worth of fan reaction. For me… I’m now just watching the party.”
GQ magazine also interviewed Henry, asking him about possible “Justice League” reshoots. “They are doing their own thing out there, putting the movie together from the footage they shot,” he says when I ask if Snyder has been in touch. “I’ve not been in comms with them about it.”
As for those reported rumors of Cavill signing a new 3-film deal to play Superman in future films…
“Well, I think it’s important that this should be about Enola Holmes,” he says. Which, you will notice, isn’t exactly a “no”, and is despite the fact Cavill has been more than willing to discuss subjects such as Warhammer figures, gaming PCs, “The Witcher”, baking, and the Synder cut of “Justice League”.
That sounds very much, I say, like a way of saying “no comment” without actually denying it.
He grins slightly. “I said what I said.”
Cavill is currently in London shooting the second season of the Netflix series “The Witcher”.
