Henry Cavill Eyes Violent, Evil Superman in Live-Action Injustice Film

Henry Cavill has his eyes on Injustice. Known for being Superman in the DCEU, Henry Cavill is pushing Warner Bros. to do a live-action version of Injustice: Gods Among Us. This is according to a new report.

It’s obvious that Henry Cavill loves playing Superman.

After all, he’s done the role in the DCEU three times already.

Before that, he was going to be Superman in J.J. Abrams’ Superman: Flyby; however, it never got into production.

He recently has been actively doing his own legwork to get himself back into the DCEU after his appearance in Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

DC Films hasn’t announced Henry Cavill returning as Superman, but Man of Steel 2 is secretly in development.

Nevertheless, Henry Cavill continues to push for more.

Henry Cavill has been trying to schedule cameo roles and planned appearances.

Moreover, he wants Superman to be the center of attention.

This time not as a hero, but as the main villain.

In Injustice, Superman was ticked by the Joker.

The Joker’s manipulation of Superman resulted in Lois Lane’s and his unborn child’s death.

Superman’s actions also caused the destruction of Metropolis.

This triggered Superman to kill the Joker.

From this point on, Superman decided that he won’t hold back and he will kill to ensure justice.

This forces Batman and the rest of the Justice League to be on opposing sides against Superman.

Injustice is more than dark; it’s pitch black.

Obviously, this is all happening in another universe, not DCEU prime.

This storyline is one of the most popular stories recently told in DC Comics.

It was originally made part of a tie-in with the fighting game of the same name.

Injustice was written by Tom Taylor; and was released in 2013.

It’s recently made into an animated DC film which is scheduled to be released on October 2021.

Yes, Injustice is not going to be an easy movie to make, especially if they need to get a lot of actors of Justice League back together with some members of the Suicide Squad, too.

Imagine Henry Cavill fighting against every single Justice League member: Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Aquaman.

Furthermore, this will be especially more like a psychological superhero drama regarding Superman’s loss and Batman’s losing friendship with him.

Nevertheless, this isn’t confirmed yet.

If this does get green lit, how will this affect the current DCEU?

In the games, the multiverse did come into play, and this also helped the heroes gain more manpower with different versions of themselves.

Because of this, the heroes were able to defeat Superman.

The evil Superman has been done a few times, but not to the extent like the version seen in Injustice.

That’s why I think Henry Cavill is interested in the story.

It’s a broken version of Superman.

Although he is the most powerful of all the superheroes in the DC universe, he didn’t have the power to save his wife, his child, and his home.

Superman doesn’t want to see this happen again so he uses his power to control everything as a tyrant.

It’s a version of Superman that is most vulnerable, but also one that is most fearsome.
