Henry Cavill rocked the Superman costume earlier as he went head-on against Ben Affleck’s Batman in the second DCEU movie – Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. While the events of the DC movie left Superman in a bad condition – with his apparent death – superhero movie fans were thrilled to know about the return of Cavill in the upcoming movie, Justice League.
Although there is still a year to go before the ensemble movie hits theatres on 17 November 2017, Warner Bros and DC are doing everything possible to generate some buzz around their superhero offering. In a latest attempt, some new pictures surfaced online that featured Cavill sporting a signature Superman look – the iconic “S” curl.
Since the Superman curl is associated with the old Kryptonian hero, does this mean that the Man Of Steel actor will play a more traditional Kal El? Fans’ best bet is to wait for the movie’s release, but in the meantime, Justice League producer Deborah Snyder explained the apparent “dark” nature of Superman (that was portrayed by Cavill in Batman v Superman).
According to Snyder, Cavill’s Superman is not a dark hero and if it does appear so, it is because “he’s going through real problems”.
“I always say their journeys are what we can relate to. Because we can’t relate to their powers, so what do you have? That’s the great thing about our Superman. He is more relatable. Someone said, ‘It’s so dark,’ and I go, ‘Well, is it dark? He’s going through real problems that we go through as people every day’,” she told Forbes magazine.
Explaining the “interesting” aspects about Superman, the Justice League producer further said that Cavill’s Superman may not be just the “good Boy Scout”.
“So I don’t think that’s dark, I think that’s just who we are. People are complex, we’re not strictly just the good Boy Scout trying to do good. He does want to do good, and I think all of the things Superman represents are who he is, but he also stumbles along the way and learns from it. To me, that’s so much more interesting,” she added.
While Superman’s future portrayal still lies shrouded in mystery, Cavill sent his fans in a frenzy after he shared a black costume for his caped character on Instagram.
