Henry Cavill On The Future Of His Superman After ‘Man Of Steel’: A Sequel, Justice League, Batman/Superman Movie?
Talking to IGN on the promotional rounds for ‘Man Of Steel,’ Henry Cavill was asked which movie he’d like to see his Superman soar into first post ‘Man of Steel’: a sequel, a Batman/Superman movie, or a ‘Justice League’ movie. “Well, if any of these things were to happen, which I don’t know if they are…. or I don’t know if they’ve even been spoken about. I think ultimately a ‘Justice League’ movie may 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 and the world is trying to get used to that idea. So, how do you get to that stage? I think a Batman/Superman would be great, because it brings that world together – whether they’re going to let that happen, I don’t know. But a ‘Man of Steel’ sequel to continue the story would be amazing, and to maybe start introducing other things. So, every single one of those. Next? I don’t know.”
Alongside Henry Cavill in the dual role of Superman/Clark Kent, the key cast for ‘Man of Steel’ includes Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Michael Shannon as General Zod, Kevin Costner as Superman/Clarke’s adoptive father Jonathan Kent, Diane Lane as Superman/Clarke’s adoptive mother Martha Kent, Laurence Fishburne as Perry White, Antje Traue as Faora, Ayelet Zurer as Superman’s Kryptonian mother Lara Lor-Van, Christopher Meloni as Colonel Hardy, Harry Lennix as General Swanwick, Michael Kelly as Steve Lombard, Richard Shiff as Dr. Emil Hamilton, and Russell Crowe as Jor-El; Superman’s Kryptonian father.

As a father yourself, I can imagine that had an added attraction to playing a character like Jor-El. Especially given his role in ‘Man of Steel,’ and the way he wishes to instill responsibility in his son….
Russell Crowe: That was one of its main attractions, you know? When I first read the script it was one of those things where that was how it was connecting with me, the question that Jor-El faces and the situation that he’s in. You can take the political situation with Krypton, the Civil War, the rescinding of the individual’s right to choose and all that sort of stuff. But really the biggest personal battle is to take your naturally born infant son and send him away, and the fact that if you don’t do it and if you don’t do it in this moment, then he dies along with the entire history of you planet as it exists. It was an interesting thing…. and there are a lot of metaphorical references to where we are with our treatment of the environment and stuff like that, I found it quite a profound read so I got involved.
