Henry Cavill Excited for Zack Snyder’s “Justice League”

Henry Cavill

Speaking on the “Happy Sad Confused” podcast with Josh Horowitz, Henry Cavill talks about his excitement for the release of Zack Snyder’s “Justice League”.

“I’m just really excited to see his vision realized,” says Henry. “He got to be the train. I think it’s only fair that train gets to reach its station which he was aiming for, and I think it’s important that that vision is realized. Whether you agree with it or not, it doesn’t matter. It’s a storyteller’s, it’s a filmmaker’s right to have that vision realized. I’m excited to see it. I’m excited to see what that vision was and how it looks.”

As you’ll recall, director Zack Snyder was forced to stand down before completing the film, due to the untimely death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in to finish off the film, reshooting many scenes and making a number of changes to the script. Henry says that Zack has “got the advantage of hindsight now” all these years later since the theatrical release of the film. “It’s going to be even better. I just want to see a good movie or a series of movies,” he says with a laugh.

Cavill’s new film “Enola Holmes,” in which he plays the famed British detective Sherlock Holmes, is currently available to watch on Netflix.

HBO Max and Warner Bros. Pictures will exclusively world premiere Zack Snyder’s director’s cut of the Warner Bros. Pictures/DC feature film “Justice League” in 2021.

I wonder how acting residuals work when they double dip films like this…

It will be. After the release on HBO other formats will be available with the eventuality being streamed on other platforms as well.

Yeah, I think at some point they most likely will make a blue-ray/Dvd release at some point . Seeing how there’s a big push for this film, I can’t see how they wouldn’t release it in a format of some kind after it airs on HBOmax. For those who don’t have the streaming service, they’re most likely going to provide a way for them to view it. And speaking of HBOmax, I don’t know if WB,AT&T,DC will read my comment, but can we please get a stand alone Brandon Routh Superman movie trilogy separate from the DCEU and a series… Read more »

I think these cross overs where there are duplicate characters are a cheap excuse for a story. Enough of that already. They’re about as exciting as burnt out prequel’s. Next thing is they’ll make a Johnathon and Martha, the early days of raising Clark Kent. “Watch baby Clark pass gas and blast his diaper through the living room wall”!! Ridiculous.

I respectfully disagree redcape. I believe it is something that could work.

And it looks like they might be heading for a multiverse movie angle for their movies now. With Keaton rumored to reprise the Batman role in the upcoming Flash movie, it definitely looks like there could be a multiverse Superman meets Superman crossover movie at some point.

Henry’s right. Doesn’t matter what people think. Only the director. I’ll finally get to see his film in its entirety the way it was meant to be. Then I’ll have it on Blu-ray. It’ll be glorious! Henry’s career has been more expedient since he teamed with Snyder. He gets roles from left to right these days, as does Ben and Gal. People just refuse to acknowledge Snyder just because he refuses to give them what they want. What they’re used to. I respect and admire any director that goes beyond the norm and thinks nothing of people’s expectations. Like Henry… Read more »

I hope you enjoy Snyder’s version of JL. Everyone should have a Superman that they enjoy. So I hope that you enjoy seeing Henry back in the role again for Zack’s JL. I am only speakng for myself, but I believe Brandon gave us a stellar performance both times that he played the role, and that he did indeed played his own version of Superman in Crisis. The life of Superman and Clark without Lois had never been done by Reeve before. That was something that Routh brought to the table. We see how Superman/Clark is trying to cope after… Read more »

I actually hadn’t watched the crisis event. I fell off of the CW some time ago. I was only talking about Returns really. But if what you say is true about his Superman on the CW being akin to the Kingdom Come comic version, then I’ll check that out, as like you said, that’s never been done before and would be interesting to see. I’d actually pay to see a series based around THAT kind of Superman. As for Hoechlin, it’s true that a family-man Superman had never been done before media-wise, but having seen him in Supergirl basically trying… Read more »

I admit that the Crisis event wasn’t perfect, but Brandon’s part as Superman in my opinion made it worth watching. I mean I liked it because it also had Supergirl and Tyler’s Superman, but Brandon is my second favorite Superman next to Christopher Reeve. So seeing him back in the role was the best part of the event for me. I won’t spoil it for you anymore than I have since I think I might have said too much already, but seeing Brandon’s Superman was definitely worth seeing it. It’s why I keep advocating his return to the role for… Read more »

The one thing I never wanted to see was a revolving door of different actors playing this role. Brandon’s job at the time was to play the role with a definite slant towards Reeve. And he did! While we get prepared for Zack’s JL, we shouldn’t forget it’s not a Superman sequel. I wouldn’t be suprised if we don’t see him wearing the black suit for a lengthy time. I believe that we’re going to see a large story ark spread over the four hour running time. Probably more so around giving the individual characters equal screen time. Could be… Read more »

I really don’t see why there can’t be a Superman for everyone redcape. I think it’s a great idea. Why deprive other fans from seeing a version of Superman that they like and want to see? With the multiverse, it’s a win for everyone. Cavill fans get to see Cavill. Routh fans get to see Routh. Hoechlin fans will see Hoechlin. Welling, Cain and so on. All of these versions of Superman could get a series. I see no problem with making everyone happy.

I get what you’re saying BUT….in the big picture does it do his character any good?? As it is, and totally my opinion, they are nuts allowing the new Superman/Lois series. They are diluting everything about this character. They are going to accomplish nothing except lower the excitement bar. He’ll end up on some half baked sappy cartoon on the Cartoon Network. I know you don’t care for Zack’s direction. But what we’ve got coming from him will at this point represent what was. The entire movie industry at this time is in dire straights. The WB is losing it’s… Read more »

I disagree redcape. I believe it helps the character of Superman tremendously. I view having a multi-verse of different versions of Superman like having options at a buffet or ice cream store. To have only one choice for the business isn’t really good for the whole business. I believe that it’s good to have variety for Superman. And that having the Superman and Lois series, will only put the spotlight on the character so that he may continue to succeed in his growing history. It’s part of his evolution. If there is more than one version of Superman to watch… Read more »

True that I’m not a fan of Cavill’s version of Superman, however, I’m not going to dismiss any ideas where Cavill fans and Hoechlin fans, and Routh fans, and so on, can be happy. To say that there should only be one version of the character while denying other fans a version that they enjoy seeing I believe to be unfair. And I always give a Superman film at least a chance before I decide that I like it or didn’t like it.So while I didn’t like Cavill’s previous two Superman films MoS and BvS, there were some things that… Read more »

Well…You don’t mind Superman morphing into SuperMEN. I’m actually surprised that you hold Roth as high as you do. Singer’s Superman Returns, aside from Roth looking Reeve like, had a story line with events not considered before. I find those events although different in context, had a closer comparative alignment with Snyder’s MoS. Were there scenes or moments in MoS that could have been done a bit different,…. yes. But in the same light there were some “whoppers” in SR that were poorly executed as well. BUT…again. In Roth portraying Superman he looked Reeve like. That’s what they wanted!! Judging… Read more »

There’s nothing wrong with liking or wanting to see more than one version of Superman at the same time.If anything I believe it will help the character. Maybe even help Cavill’s version as well since it would put some spotlight on the character of Superman. Yes I hold Routh in high regard, because he has played the role so well. And yes he looks like Reeve and he reminds me of him, but that is not the main reason why I like his version. (And yes I am well aware that he was casted as Superman for SR because of… Read more »

Zack’s JL just doesn’t represent the movie itself to me. It was done during a time when the vast majority of garbage we’re enduring today hadn’t quite made it’s mark. There’s total calamity going on right now within the WB structure. Supposedly they have green lit a Gren Lantern series on HBO MAX. But who knows if that’ll see the light of day. The whole movie industry is in a state of potential financial ruins. Will it come back or not??…Who knows. But I for one would rather not see a continuing cheapened version of,.. in this case, Superman just… Read more »

Well redcape, I’m not going to tell you on what version of Superman to watch or not watch. It isn’t my place to say. What I will say is that everyone has a version of Superman that they like.What some may like in one version of Superman, others may not. I cannot speak for others, but I can speak for myself when I say that I look forward to seeing this show. While Tyler isn’t my first pick as Superman, I do Ike his version. As for the parts of his story that I’m not happy about, I blame the… Read more »
