The return of an icon of the 80s

Of course, at the moment it is unknown what role Henry Cavill will play and if the characters of the saga will remain or they will bet on original characters; In addition, no other name of the film’s cast has transpired, although it has been confirmed that there will be more important characters in the plot. To all this we must add the confirmation of the actor himself through his first official statements in this regard.
“I’ve been a fan of Los Inmortales since he was a kid. From the movies with all the glory of the 80s with music by Queen to the television series with an actor who looked a lot like one of my brothers. I hope it’s a great adventure that I (and I hope you too) will never forget, ”says Cavill.
Regarding his role as Superman, nothing has been confirmed about his continuity or not as Clark Kent in the DC film universe, although with such a tight schedule with so many roles and the idea of Warner Bros. to bet on a new black Superman in the cinema, they leave Henry Cavill with a foot and a half outside of DC.
