Henry Cavill hopes to play more of Superman in future

Henry Cavill is ready to suit up. The Witcher star sat down with Sir Patrick Stewart for Variety's Actors on Actors series, where he expressed his interest in reprising his role of Superman. "It's something I've always been incredibly grateful for," he said of playing the famous DC superhero. "I've always been a fan of Superman. With a character like that, you carry the mantle with you off set. And it becomes part of your public representation. When you meet children, children don't necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there's a responsibility which comes with that." Cavill continued, "Because it's such a wonderful character, it's actually a responsibility I'm happy to have, and I hope that I get to play more of it in years to come." During his interview with Stewart, Cavill also opened up about how his superhero alter ego has shaped the trajectory of his career. "My life has changed dramatically because of it," he expressed. "And it has given me plenty of opportunity for roles, and yeah, it's been one of those characters which changed the entire course of my career. I'm incredibly grateful for it."
