Henry Cavill is working on a new standalone Superman movie, his manager has confirmed.
The British actor starred as Clark Kent in the 2013 reboot Man Of Steel, then reprised the role in this year’s Batman v Superman: Dawn Of Justice. He’s also due to play Kent in next year’s ensemble movie Justice League and an upcoming Batman v Superman sequel which could arrive in 2020.
However, this hasn’t halted plans for another Superman solo outing. “Henry has a big appetite,” his manager Dany Garcia told Newsweek. “We’ve been in a five-month period of time where he’s re-strategising, acquiring property [for his production company Promethean], he’s filming [Justice League] now, he’s in development for the Superman standalone… he’s beginning to expand that world.”
“It’s beautifully teed up. In a year from now, or two years from now, he’s going to be a force globally,” she added.
Meanwhile, Cavill’s co-star Ben Affleck is working on a standalone Batman movie which he is directing as well as starring in. True Blood‘s Joe Manganiello has recently been cast as the villainous Deathstroke in the movie, which is expected to hit cinemas in 2018.
Before then, Gal Gadot’s eagerly-anticipated Wonder Woman movie will hit cinema screens on June 2, 2017.
