Is Henry Cavill Participating in New “Justice League” Reshoots for Snyder Cut?

Henry Cavill

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 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”.

I can tell the poor guy wants to talk about the movie he’s actually there to promote but everyone is asking him about Superman but he clearly can’t say anything yet.

Multiple news outlets reporting he is not filming reshoots. So I guess that’s outta the question.

Going all the way back before JossW’s JL was released, Henry was interviewed regarding re-shoots he was called back for. He said he was surprised as his part with Zack as Superman has been completed. Point is, if his part back then had been wrapped up them either Zack’s adding more to his JL or we’re all just getting hype.

This interview was done weeks ago. And he’s also been evasive regarding a contract extension for multiple movies, which has been reported elsewhere. Websites like Collider and specifically John Campea have been wildly inaccurate with their Snyder Cut reporting.

This interview was done weeks ago. Henry’s also been evasive regarding a contract extension for multiple movies, which has been reported elsewhere, coinciding with some key social media postings from Dany Garcia. Websites like Collider and specifically John Campea have been wildly inaccurate (or purposely false) with their Snyder Cut reporting. Much like the fact that there were going to be no reshoots at all according to multiple outlets. I mean, these are some of the same outlets that said the Snyder Cut didn’t exist in any form. Likely the studio lapdog journalists making the claims. Besides, there’s an internal… Read more »

Who knows what is or isn’t correct. When they gave the green light to Snyder, it was reported that he was given 20mill to put finishing touches on it. Then I read it was up to 70mill. Snyder had said that some of the cast was going to do some voice work, then it was reported that there would be additional filming with the original actors. Unless the words come out of Zack’s mouth we’re probably going to be subjected to more false rumors than truth.

Yeah, I think Snyder actually talked about this in an Instagram post, if I recall correctly. Mainly, the media yard-arm for Hollywood spent so long denying the thing existed. I trust none of them at this point but I’m just glad we’re getting the thing.
