Henry Cavill thinks that now he has his "'Mission: Impossible' badge", he's all set to play James Bond.
Henry Cavill is without a doubt a fan-favourite choice to one day step into the role of James Bond. Standing alongside fellow frontrunners such as Tom Hardy and Aidan Turner, he's somebody who has not only the looks, but the acting chops to back up a claim to such an iconic character. For now however, Daniel Craig is sticking with the film franchise, and will play Bond for a fifth time in a movie being directed by Danny Boyle.

We all know that James Bond wouldn't give a miss on a visit to a casino or maybe new UK betting sites.

Henry Cavill is clearly well read when it comes to DC Comics, as the actor wants to take on the villain Brainiac in a second 'Man of Steel' movie.
The rumours surrounding a follow-up film to the unofficially-titled DC Extended Universe's first release 'Man of Steel' have been ramped up a notch in recent weeks, and now actor Henry Cavill, who took on the titular role of Clark Kent, aka Superman within the DCEU, is stoking those fires and revealing who he'd like to take on in a 'MoS' sequel.
Henry Cavill has some big ideas for 'Man of Steel 2'
Speaking with Fandom as part of the junket for 'Mission: Impossible - Fallout', the actor said: "I think a great villain would be Brainiac, that'd be a good villain to play against. Brainiac's a big threat. There's a lot of fun. There's a lot of storylines to him."

Cavill told GQ Australia that the #MeToo movement had made him "too scared" to flirt.
Henry Cavill has attempted to row back on controversial comments he made regarding dating in the post-#MeToo age in a recent interview, saying he “doesn’t want to flirt in case he gets called a rapist”.
The British actor came under fire for recent comments he made to GQ Australia, when asked about the #MeToo movement and the sexual abuse scandal in Hollywood that triggered it.
Regarding his own behaviour, Cavill said: “There’s something wonderful about a man chasing a woman. There’s a traditional approach to that, which is nice. I think a woman should be wooed and chased, but maybe I’m old-fashioned for thinking that.”

Henry Cavill had to have his moustache CGI'd out of 'Justice League' reshoots.
'Justice League' may not have been the biggest success for Warner Bros., despite bringing together some of DC's biggest characters ever for the first time on the big screen, but the film still makes up a huge part of the unofficially-titled DC Extended Universe. One of the biggest criticisms of the movie however did not come from a performance or a particular scene, but because of the CGI work done on Henry Cavill as Superman, who had to have his real-life moustache removed during reshoots.
Henry Cavill has opened up about his 'Justice League' CGI controversy
Though not a hugely serious problem, it was one that took up a lot of media coverage, with Cavill himself addressing the situation and poking fun at the CGI on a number of occasions. Now though, in a new interview, he's opened up a little more about the work done to his face after reshoots and the "real problem" of sporting the facial hair.
Henry Cavill's manager has hinted we'll see the actor suit up as Superman in the upcoming 'Shazam!' movie.
Following his resurrection in the recent 'Justice League' movie, the DC Extended Universe will likely be seeing a lot more of the Man of Steel in the coming years, with Henry Cavill of course continuing to tackle the role of Clark Kent, aka Superman. The world of DC Films is only set to expand however, with more superheroes from the pages of DC comic books entering the fray.
Henry Cavill could bring Superman to 'Shazam!'
One of those is the alter-ego of teenager Billy Batson. Asher Angel will be stepping into the role of Billy on the big screen, whilst Zachary Levi will be taking on his superhero persona, Shazam. The aptly-titled 'Shazam!' isn't expected to premiere for another year yet, but details seem to be coming thick and fast as to what we should expect.

Cavill paid hilarious tribute to the notorious moustache that had to be digitally edited out of 'Justice League'.
Everyone likes celebrities who can enjoy a joke at their own expense, and so it is with Superman actor Henry Cavill, who has acknowledged the months of trolling concerning his moustache with an ‘in memoriam’ video dedicated to his facial hair after he shaved it off.
The 34 year old star’s moustache became the stuff of viral legend last summer when it was the subject of some of the worst CGI ever seen in film history. Cavill had been starring in Justice League as Superman in mid-2017, a role that he had held down for five years in the DC cinematic universe.
Nothing weird about that, but he was also working on Mission: Impossible 6 at around the same time of shooting, and that role required him to have facial hair. When Warner Bros unexpectedly scheduled re-shoots for Justice League, he had no choice but to shoot his parts with his moustache and ask the special effects team to remove it post-production.

The film didn't see the best reception, but Cavill is rock solid in his support of Snyder.
'Justice League' may not have been the biggest box office hit or smash with the critics, but the film is still something that makes up a huge chunk of canon within the DC Extended Universe. Behind-the-scenes, director Zack Snyder had to step down from his role halfway through the filmmaking process, paving the way for Joss Whedon to step in and eventually leading to fans petitioning for the release of a full Snyder-cut of the movie.
The 'Justice League' teamed up for the first time on the big screen
Though that doesn't look to be something that will now happen, there are still glimpses of the cast and crew working on the film from when Snyder was in charge, as part of the exclusive features on the home release of the Warner Bros. production.
The actor thinks superheroes represent "different factions of the human psyche".
There's now under a week to go until the release of 'Justice League'; the latest entry into the DC Extended Universe and a film that will hopefully continue riding off of the success of 'Wonder Woman'. Whilst 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', 'Suicide Squad' and 'Man of Steel' didn't see the best critical reviews, 'Wonder Woman' was an immediate success with both reviewers and the wider general public. 'Justice League' will hope to follow the latter's trend.
Henry Cavill is set to return as Superman in 'Justice League' following his time in 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice'
Warner Bros., along with director Zack Snyder and co-writer Joss Whedon have brought the heroes of the Justice League together for the first time in live-action, with Aquaman, The Flash and Cyborg stepping in to join Batman, Wonder Woman and Superman. Together, they'll take on the threat of Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons, who have invaded planet Earth to try and get their hands on a trio of Mother Boxes, which would grant them ultimate power.

The actor is making his return to the DCEU as the Man of Steel.
When it comes to the DC Extended Universe, it's fair to say the reaction to the majority of its movies so far has been completely split. 'Wonder Woman' broke the mould, bringing in amazing reviews from both critics and the wider general viewing public, but for the flicks that came before it such as 'Suicide Squad' and 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice', there was a lot of venom and raised eyebrows.
Flash, Superman, Cyborg, Wonder Woman, Batman and Aquaman make up the 'Justice League'
This month, the latest addition to the DCEU comes in the form of 'Justice League', with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Ben Affleck's Batman teaming up with Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher), The Flash (Ezra Miller) and the returning Superman (Henry Cavill). Forced to defend Earth once more, they'll go up against their most formidable threat in Steppenwolf and his army of Parademons who are all in search of a trio of Mother Boxes scattered across the planet. With them, Steppenwolf would claim ultimate power, bringing death and destruction to millions.

The planet is in turmoil. Superman is apparently dead and crime rates have surged around the world as a result. But there's more than just petty theft and random assaults out there; mankind are under threat from an alien general named Steppenwolf who, with his terrible army of Parademons, are causing devastation as they search far and wide for three mysterious Mother Boxes hidden on Earth. The people need help, and so Bruce Wayne brings back Gotham's hero - Batman - and enlists the assistance of Wonder Woman to form a new legion of heroes. They, along with Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash, must protect the world from total destruction at the hands of Steppenwolf and, ultimately, his boss Darkseid. They're all very different heroes, with very different ideas about fighting villains, but there's one thing they all have in common - a desire for justice.
