If at first you don’t succeed, recut the movie and try again. 2017’s infamous superhero crossover Justice League is getting a cape-lift and a 2021 release, recut by the film’s original director Zack Snyder. The Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice director had to depart from the project due to a family tragedy, so Avengers director Joss Whedon stepped in to finish things up in post. The resulting film is a mish-mash of styles and creative visions, receiving all around poor reviews and box office revenue. Now, Snyder will be releasing a revised cut on HBO Max, in an attempt to set things right.

In Variety’s latest Actors on Actors interview, Patrick Stewart spoke with Superman actor Henry Cavill about his Justice League experience. When asked about his opinions on the new “Snyder Cut,” Cavill replied that he didn’t know much more than we did, except that it’s going to be “Zack’s final vision” for the movie. Cavill continued, “I’m just really happy that Zack got to realize his vision. I think it’s important for a filmmaker and a storyteller to have their intended vision released and shown to the world, and I’m looking forward to seeing it myself. It’s been quite the ordeal.”

Cavill agreed that Justice League suffered from a “mix of visions,” and believes that watching the Snyder cut will be a “very enjoyable” experience. We can't wait to see it for ourselves.

Henry Cavill In Talks To Play Superman Again

Back in November, Henry Cavill said he had “not given up the role” of Superman yet and promised “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.” But it had already been years since Cavill had played Superman, and Warner Bros. seemed to be focused on adapting new characters from DC Comics characters.

Well, Variety reports that Cavill’s words are coming true after all. Details are scant at this point, but Cavill is apparently “in talks to return as Clark Kent in an upcoming DC Comics movie.” Whether this would be a solo film or a team-up remains to be seen, along with what the creative team for such a project would be.

It would be quite a reversal from just a couple years ago, when the DC Extended Universe looked to be on death’s door after the poorly received Suicide Squad and the disastrous Justice League. Now Zack Snyder is working on a director’s cut of Justice League for HBO Max and The Suicide Squad sequel is about a year away. Despite the movies’ flaws, Cavill always made a very good Man of Steel. And hey, Superman came back to life after he was killed by Doomsday, too. Maybe this guy really is perfectly cast in this role.
