With Man Of Steel set to swoop into cinemas later this month, speculation is already beginning to build as to the future of the character, and how he might fit in to a potential Justice League movie.
Henry Cavill has been speaking about the possibility of a DC super-team-up, and speculates as to how such a movie might eventually come about.
“Well, if any of these things were to happen,” says Cavill, “which I don’t know if they are, I don’t know if they’ve even been spoken about – I think, ultimately, a Justice League movie could be fun, but to get to that stage, you have to do other movies in between.
“You can’t just suddenly have a world full of gods when one god has just arrived. So, how do you get to that stage? I think a ‘Batman / Superman’ movie would be great because it brings that world together.”
“Whether they’re going to let that happen, I don’t know. But a sequel to continue [Man of Steel] would certainly be amazing… and maybe start introducing some other things. Which of those comes next? I don’t know.”
Man Of Steel opens in the UK on June 14th.
