In a recent press tour for Netflix’s The Witcher series, Henry Cavill revealed that he hasn’t seen the Snyder Cut and doesn’t know if one exists. He further elaborated that he’d love to see the cut if there is one, but would rather focus on the future of Superman instead of the past.During his interview with Kevin McCarthy, Cavill said, “I have not seen any Snyder Cut – I don’t know if there is anything that exists that is a Snyder Cut. I’m sure there is footage out there which has probably been pieced together over the years. I’m always interested to see how that stuff turns out, but that is very much a chapter of my past. I would rather talk about what is going to happen in the future – the future of Superman, how I can express that character from the comic books. Which, ties in nicely to Man of Steel, I really like that movie, and I’d like to be able to tell the story where it was left at that point.”
When asked by McCarthy if that Superman story will continue, Cavill said smiling, “I can tell you nothing, unfortunately. I can tell you nothing. But it would indeed be awesome.”
Cavill’s comments further support a recent statement from Justice League composer Danny Elfman, claiming that the Snyder Cut was “never finished.” However, Elfman’s claims are in direct contradiction to a statement from Jason Momoa (Aquaman) who said he has “seen the Snyder Cut.“
Last month, Cavill told Men’s Health that despite rumors, he has not given up the role of Superman, saying “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. The status is: You’ll see.”
Cavill will be seen next in Netflix’s The Witcher where he portrays Geralt of Rivia. Watch our interview with Cavill from San Diego Comic Con, where he talked about the adaptation from the books for fans, and how he’s played through The Witcher 3 multiple times.
