As Henry Cavill awaits a new Superman contract, one thing hasn’t changed: his costume’s size. While Henry Cavill’s salary will be bigger, his outfit still fits.
Henry Cavill spoke to ITV’s Lorraine morning show.
They asked him if he’s able to get into his Superman suit.
It does with no problem whatsoever.
I do still have the outfit, just in case. Yes, I do! Yes, I do. Ready and waiting for the phone calls.
Quite frankly, it’s rare to see an actor express such enthusiasm while in negotiations.
Well, at least in public.
Generally, it’s best to show a poker face.
In other words, reign it in.
But Henry Cavill’s love for Superman shines.
Simply, he can’t himself. He added:
That was so much fun. It’s been so long since I’ve put the suit on professionally.
Henry Cavill Says Superman Costume Still Fits While Awaiting New Deal
Henry Cavill debuted as Superman in Man of Steel.
Warner Bros. released the film in 2013.
That was nearly a decade ago.
Nevertheless, it doesn’t feel like there’s been enough of his Superman.
There’s a reason for that.
Warner Bros. didn’t give director Zack Snyder approval for a sequel.
The follow-up, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, wasn’t Man of Steel 2.
In fact Batman had top billing.
Moreover, the film didn’t fulfill studio expectations.
It grossed $873.6 million worldwide.
While those are huge numbers, Warner Bros. expected more.
Henry Cavill returned as Superman in 2017’s Justice League.
But replacement director Joss Whedon butchered Snyder’s original vision.
The movie bombed.
His future as Superman seemed uncertain.
HBO Max unleashed Zack Snyder’s Justice League in 2021.
This time, Henry Cavill was more popular than ever.
Netflix’ The Witcher series elevated his worth.
Likewise, The Snyder Cut was a global smash.
On January 6, we discovered that he was in deep talks to return as Superman.
In other words, he’s not finished.
Obviously, he can’t say that openly.
Instead, he stated:
If I were to stop acting tomorrow and live on a yacht or a boat somewhere…I can still look back and say I’ve worn a cape and leapt about the place and entertained some people.
