Since the release of The Man of Steel (55%) in 2013 it was criticized that the film was too dark and the character too gloomy, compared to the original version of the comics and previous film and TV adaptations. This was increased in Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice (27%)and then in 2017 with Justice League (41%) they wanted to change it, but the result was terrible and the film was a box office flop.

Thanks to pressure from fans, Warner Bros. agreed to release the director’s cut of Justice League, a version very different from the one released in theaters: Zack Snyder’s Justice League (82%)where Superman returns from the dead, albeit in a black suit, which adds to the idea that he is a very dark version.

On the other hand, there is a reason why Superman would become a very strange character if the studio decided to continue down the path of Zack Snyder’s Justice League. A vision of the future reveals on the tape that the villain Darkseid murders Lois Lane, Superman’s love, and finding himself in such a state of vulnerability, he succumbs to the Anti-Life Equation and becomes a faithful servant of Darkseid.

Many fans continue to ask that Warner Bros. approve the sequels of the film and let’s see that dark future, but a new report indicates that, in addition to there being no reason to think that the SnyderVerse will be restored, henry cavill He has no interest in continuing down that path, he wants a Superman who projects hope.

The place Giant Freakin Robot He assures that his reliable sources informed him that the British actor wants to move away from the SnyderVerse and play a much more positive version of the superhero, as most comic readers know. This completely coincides with the actor’s statements in a video of C.Q. where he reviewed his most iconic roles:

I was very interested in really fleshing out the early stages of Superman’s journey, first. We had Man of Steel and then we got a little darker with Batman v Superman. And if he did succumb to the Anti-Life equation and become the evil Superman, I really wanted to make sure that we saw the hero Superman and saw the true symbol of hope, the beacon of light, before we went down the path of darkness, and then redemption. It’s still something I really want to develop.

Cavill leaves no room for doubt. Before Superman falls into Darkseid’s hands and then turns good again, he wants to see him as a symbol of hope. In 2019 he had already said something similar to the magazine Men’s Health:

The Man of Steel was a great starting point, if I could go back I wouldn’t change a thing. Batman v Superman was a Batman movie and I think that realm of darkness is great for a Batman movie. Justice League just didn’t work out. The cape is in the closet. It’s still mine, I haven’t given up on the role. There is still so much I have to give as Superman. Many stories to tell. A lot of true and honest depth of character that I want to explore. I want to reflect the comics, that’s important to me. There is a lot of justice to be done to Superman.
