“I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on.”
Back in 2018, reports rolled in that 36 year old ‘Man of Steel’ actor Henry Cavill would not reprise his role as Superman. The DCEU has undergone many changes since we last saw the popular DC hero on screen. Warner Bros. And DC have gone in a completely different direction. Now focusing on solo, lower budget, character driven films, instead of big budget Hollywood blockbusters. The formula seems to be working for now, as Todd Phillips’ ‘Joker’ starring Joaquin Phoenix, filmed on a $50mil budget has surpassed $1bill at the global box-office.
In a recent interview with ‘Men’s Health’ magazine. Cavill was asked the status of Superman in the changing DC Universe. And his place and take on what will happen with the character:
“I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on. I’ve not given up the role,” Cavill expressed to the magazine. “There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman. The status is: You’ll see.”
It would appear that Cavill is not planning to hang up the cape just yet. By the sounds of it, he hopes to continue in the role, ushering in a new era for the hero from Krypton, in the post Zack Snyder era. Can Henry Cavill survive the soft reboot of the DCEU? Let us know what you think below.
Director Matt Reeves Drops Our Fist Look At The New Batmobile
“It’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation”
In the modern era of cinema, the internet is no stranger to leaks and set photos. Most Directors are faced with the difficult challenge of deciding when and when not to release official photos. Recently, an onslaught of set photos have hit the web, showing the newly re-designed batman look, along with a glimpse of the “Batcycle” and possibly a look at catwoman.
Today, Matt Reeves decided to break the internet, giving us our first look at the new batmobile. Reeves describes ‘The Batman’ as a noir style film, told squarely on the shoulders of the dark knight. It would appear that Reeves is going with a truly grounded approach to the character. A “Year two” Batman, taking on Gotham’s criminal underworld, with a rogues gallery of villains.
“It’s very much a point of view-driven, noir Batman tale,” he said. “It’s told very squarely on his shoulders, and I hope it’s going to be a story that will be thrilling but also emotional. It’s more Batman in his detective mode than we’ve seen in the films. The comics have a history of that. He’s supposed to be the world’s greatest detective, and that’s not necessarily been a part of what the movies have been. I’d love this to be one where when we go on that journey of tracking down the criminals and trying to solve a crime, it’s going to allow his character to have an arc so that he can go through a transformation.”

Matt Reeves Drops First Look | Batsuit Test From ‘The Batman’
Fans have been waiting weeks since filming began for Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman,’ for a quick glance at the new batsuit. Now we have our first official look at what Robert Pattinson will look like dawning the cape and cowl of the dark knight. We also get our first listen at the musical tone we can expect from the upcoming film, which to no surprise, is dark and ominous. Pattinson would like to see Batman receive an R-Rating saying that it would free his character up to do more:
“The only thing that’s more complicated is the rating. As soon as you make something an R-rated movie, you’re freed up to do so much stuff. In terms of the character itself, I want to push it as far as it possibly can go. And I think Matt Reeves does as well. You can do crazy stuff with that part.”
