Though he goes by the name Geralt of Rivia these days, Man of Steel star is still strongly attached to the role of the last son of Krypton.

Amid reports that he may be returning soon as the caped Kryptonian, Cavill told Variety that he has always been a fan of the character and that he hopes to keep playing him in years to come.

He said:

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. 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 Superman in years to come.

My life has changed dramatically because of it. 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, and it’s also taught me a lot about myself.”

Cavill added:

He’s so good, he’s so kind, and when you start to compare yourself to him, because you’re playing him, you start to really look inwards. You say, ‘Am I a good person? Can I be a good enough person to play Superman?’ And if you ever hear a whisper in there which is like, ‘Hmm, hold on a second. Maybe not’, then you adjust it, and you make sure you are a better person. I think that’s all we can do in life.”

The actor’s portrayal of Superman was met with mixed reviews, with his movies not being well received. Here’s hoping that it all changes in future installments.
