Henry Cavill plans to play Superman for "many, many years to come"

With DC's slate planned out through at least the end of this decade, we can likely expect to see a lot of Henry Cavill and Ben Affleck in the years to come. Whereas Robert Downey Jr's age is beginning to be a factor in the longevity of his tenure as Tony Stark, DC has been casting younger as they prepare to debut all sorts of new heroes over the next couple of years. Right at the forefront is the first one of them cast, Henry Cavill, who doesn't have any plans to give up playing Superman.

At the recent BAFTA Awards Season Tea in England (yeah, they have tea to celebrate awards nominations. How British of them), The Anglophile Channel caught up with Cavill and asked him about how many times he would like to play Superman.

"As many as it takes. I love the character, I love working with Warner Bros and what they are doing with it. Fingers crossed that I will be able to tell the story for many, many years to come."

Cavill goes on to say that he has been living in the dark for the past year in regards to the various awards nominees. Since Zack Snyder's BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE took over the bulk of 2014 for the actor, I can imagine why. With Cavill only being 31 right now, he has a long time that he could play Clark Kent on the big screen. Even with the planned films scheduled through 2019, that would only make Cavill 35. Superman could easily be played by the British actor for another 15 years, assuming he still wants the role after that much time.

As a fan of MAN OF STEEL, I would love to have the consistency for that long. Ben Affleck, however, has just begun a great career as a director, so he may not be as willing to play Batman for fifteen more years. So, while DC may not be able to stay consistent with every actor, at least we know this iconic character may be.

BATMAN V SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE hits theaters on March 25, 2016.

Good to hear. Cavill is the Superman I have always wanted. He's got it all. I loved Man of Steel, still do not understand the hate for that film.

I liked Man of Steel.

They are carrying themes from that film into the next. They will be dealing with consequences. They will develop Superman and bring him closer to the person that people know him to be.

Henry Cavill personifies Superman of today in his portrayal of the character. I look forward in seeing where he takes him. I will always cherish Superman 1 & 2 and Christopher Reeve's portrayal and I knew it would take someone gifted to take over. Henry has done that. Look at the profile in the above photo,

Look at the profile in the above photo, for fuck's sake. I hope that Fox (or hopefully Marvel) can do the same for Logan when it comes the time to replace Jackman.

While I have preferred marvel offerings to what DC has done, I did like Man of Steel. And I absolutely love Cavil. He was amazing casting, and looks, and sounds, and acts the part well. its also nice he actually took the time to get jacked. So spot on and I'm glad he loves the role and wants to play it for a long time. Granted I guess no one would say anything else in his shoes. I mean its not like he'd say nah I'm, done as soon as my contract is up lol.

"for many, many years to come"

Who's he trying to kid? Cavill won't even make it as far as four Superman movies before a reboot kicks him to the curb.

Glad to hear it. And as excited I am to see DC's new take on Batman, I hope this new film dosen't take away scene time from Cavill's Superman. If we aren't going to get more character development in a Man of Steel until a couple of years, then I hope we get more in Batman vs Superman (especially Cavill in Clark Kent mode).

It should say "if we aren't going to get more character development in a Man of Steel sequel until a couple of more years"
