One of Henry’s recent standout roles is undoubtedly Superman in the DCEU. Despite the mixed reviews of the films, Cavill’s portrayal of the Man of Steel was generally well-received. With his hinted appearance in ‘Black Adam’ and the expectation of DCEU’s expansion, fans anticipated Cavill reprising his role as Superman in several upcoming movies. He allegedly abandoned his role as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix’s ‘The Witcher’ due to that, though it was later clarified that he departed from the project due to disagreements with the writers and showrunners over their handling of the source material.

The surprise came when DCEU announced a complete reboot, with Cavill unlikely to return, as the focus shifts to a younger cast of characters. However, Cavill’s involvement in projects like the untitled ‘Warhammer 40K’ project and the ‘Highlander’ reboot was confirmed. Most recently, Cavill expressed interest in portraying Captain Britain in the MCU.

More rumors suggest Cavill has agreed to join the MCU, possibly as a key X-Men character. The top contenders for his role seem to be Cyclops and Wolverine. Although Hugh Jackman will return as Wolverine in ‘Deadpool & Wolverine,’ it’s said to be a variant version, leaving the main timeline’s Wolverine still up for grabs.

Considering the anticipation for the X-Men’s introduction into the MCU, it’s probable that Cavill will feature prominently in one of the main roles. What are your thoughts? Who do you think Cavill might portray? Share your opinions in the comments section!
