Man of Steel? “If I were to go back, I don’t think I’d change anything.”Batman v Superman? “Very much a Batman movie. And I think that realm of darkness is great for a Batman movie.” Justice League? “It didn’t work.”
Cavill carries on to say that he isn’t going to sit quietly in the dark as all the false rumors are being spread, as he hasn’t given up on the role:
“I’m not just going to sit quietly in the dark as all this stuff is going on,” Cavill says of the rumors. “I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman.
As if we’ll see him as Superman again, Cavill goes on to simply say:
The status is: You’ll see.”
