Henry Cavill says no Justice League movie anytime soon

HENRY Cavill has been playing down the possibility of a Justice League movie anytime soon.

Speculation is rife that Warner Bros may fast-track the project based on the success of Superman reboot Man of Steel and Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight franchise in a bid to compete with Marvel’s rival Avengers universe.

But in an interview with ABC News the British actor said that he didn’t think such a project could be done quickly and that a lot of care needed to be taken to get the Justice League right.

He said: “Justice League could be great if done correctly. It’s a very tough one to do because the DC comic heroes are all god-like in their power. So in this real world universe, real-world setting we’re telling our story in, it’s going to be tough to achieve that.

“It has to be done very delicately with a lot of thought. So, it won’t be right away. I hope it’s not, anyway. It may take some time of building up other movies and other characters and introducing them together in one way or another.”

Asked whether he would like to be in it, Cavill added: “I think it would be great to do, but I don’t think it’s around the corner.”

Cavill will reprise his role of Clarke Kent/Superman in the Man of Steel sequel, which has already been greenlit.

Man of Steel has so far grossed almost $400 million worldwide since its release a few weeks ago.
