Henry Cavill Hopes Justice League ‘Won’t Be Right Away’

Henry Cavill wants to fly alongside his fellow members of the Justice League — he just doesn’t expect that to happen for quite a while.

In an interview with ABC’s Peter Travers, the Man of Steel star opened up on the future of the DC Cinematic Universe. In his opinion, a Justice League movie is “going to be tough to achieve.”

“Justice League could be great if done correctly,” he said. “It’s a very tough one to do because the DC comic heroes are all god-like in their power. So in this real-world setting we’re telling out story in, it’s going to be tough to achieve that and it has to be done very delicately with a lot of thought. So, it won’t be right away, I hope it’s not anyway.”

See more of Cavill’s thoughts on Superman and beyond in the video interview below.

    Poor DC. Even their star has qualms about a JL movie. I bet they love him sharing THAT opinion.

  • Raskon

    I’m pretty sure you’re misreading this. He’s saying a movie would be great, as long as they get it right. As they guy who will be the face of both franchises I doubt they have any issue with this.

  • braun rodman

    REALISTIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Exactly what I want in my fictional worlds…

  • Frank

    I’m glad Henry Cavill feels this way. I would really like for them to take their time and get everything right to make each movie as meaningful as Man of Steel was for me. I don’t think they need to compete with Marvel at all, I enjoyed Man of Steel more than any of the Marvel movies and I really enjoyed them. (Well, except Iron Man 3)

    We’re all lucky you had no hand in Nolan’s Batman films, then.

  • Yuri

    FFS DC, you had the perfect opportunity to have Steve Trevor show up in MoS but NOOOOOOO…….

  • Dan Riedel

    It can be done realistically quite easily, make Brainiac the villain who, prior to invading Earth targets the biggest threats on earth and systematically finds ways to capture/kill each prior to a full out invasion.

    Superman will be too busy fighting for his life against Doomsday to be considered a threat. Batman, overlooked, is the one who takes him out in the end.

  • wisbadgers

    I don’t see them making a Wonder Women movie anytime soon so Steve Trevor would not have made sense. That, and if you’re going to subtly hint at the next movie, a Steve Trevor sighting would fly over (no pun intended) the heads of most of the audience.
    I’m crossing my fingers for a Flash movie myself.

  • braun rodman

    besides Ledger’s perfomance they were shit. And they came nowhere near being “realistic”

  • braun rodman

    I also have a hard time supporting fascist propaganda films who (in rises) pretty much glorify the establishment and retell the french revolution using royal propaganda pamphlets from the the 1700s

  • David Ellis

    The ship sailed on Nolan’s Batman films being realistic when the fear toxin was pumped into the water supply but needed to be evaporated in order to take effect. And when they needed a microwave emitter in order to carry that out, when all the people of Gotham had to do in order to hallucinate was take a shower. Or wash dishes. Or make coffee or tea.

    He’s right.. I said this walking into The Avengers movie.. “Avengers will be a gauge if the technology and cinematography is ready for JLA with it’s uber-power-level displays and concurrent power displays”.. NOPE not ready.. JLA is known for concurrent power displays in the same shot, yet in Avengers you never see Thor or Iron Man pounding each other airborne.. When Thor handled lightning, he wasn’t flying.. JLA is known for pan+scan type shots in comics where the screen pans across multiple power displays, not the frequent cut-to-shot-zoom used in Avengers (and most action flicks).. The cinematography NEEDS NO COMPROMISE for technology, then we’ll see a JLA movie.. We need to see a flicker free shot of Superman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, and Jonn Jonz lifting something HUGE, then we’re ready.. Oh yeah, the writing has to be delicate too..

  • Brett Van Boven

    We are all overlooking the biggest big of information from this…Henry Cavill, a grown man, nearly lost out on being Superman because he was playing World of Warcraft. That was an epic moment.

  • Mr_Wayne

    Did you even watch the interview or are you just trolling for trolls sake. That ain’t remotely what Caville said.

  • Chris Schillig

    According to the article: “In his opinion, a Justice League movie is ‘going to be tough to achieve.'”

    Hey, I liked “Man of Steel,” but my guess is DC wants to move ahead with a JL film sooner rather than later.

  • eldin

    Fat Cavil! hahahahahahahaha! I shouldn’t even talk!

  • DarthTigris

    “Oh yeah, the writing has to be delicate too.”
    Lol, yes, secondary.
    This is what the makers of MoS forgot and why it’s box office had such a drop. Good writing cannot be minimized.

  • Hypestyles

    There’s no excuse not to tackle the Justice League in 3 years. Get relative unknowns like Cavill was, put together a tight creative team of producers/writer(s)/director, don’t be afraid of the heavy spectacle and action that a JLA movie implies, and go for it.

  • Bane

    im willing to wait if it means better quality film

  • chien_clean

    ah haha that’s awesome to hear the so many parts that passed Cavill by.
