Henry Cavill Says ‘Justice League’ Is Not ‘Around the Corner’

'Man of Steel' star wary of the DC superhero adaptation happening anytime soon.

In a recent interview with ABC News, “Man of Steel” star Henry Cavill said that the long-gestating “Justice League” film, reportedly in the works due to the success of the recent Superman and Batman reboots, will not be made anytime soon.

Warner Bros. is aiming to replicate the success of Marvel’s “Avengers” template, which grossed 1.5 billion dollars worldwide in addition to spawning successful franchises for Iron Man, Thor and Captain America.

Cavill however, notes an important difference between the Marvel superheroes and DC characters that make “Justice League” a more difficult project to pull off.

“Justice League could be great if done correctly. It’s a very tough one to do because the DC comic heroes are all god-like in their power. So in this real world universe, real-world setting we’re telling our story in, it’s going to be tough to achieve that.It has to be done very delicately with a lot of thought. So, it won’t be right away. I hope it’s not, anyway. It may take some time of building up other movies and other characters and introducing them together in one way or another,” Cavill said.

Cavill seemed open to donning the cape again for a Justice League film, despite his concerns.

“I think it would be great to do, but I don’t think it’s around the corner.”

Warner Bros. has not officially attached a writer or director to a Justice League film, though writer David S. Goyer and director Zack Snyder are rumored to be involved in some capacity.

“Man of Steel” has grossed almost $400 million worldwide since its release.
