  • Henry Cavill is the subject of new Marvel rumors.
  • Characters speculated include Doctor Doom and Captain Britain.
  • There has been zero official word yet.

Once upon a time, Henry Cavill had a bright, shiny future in the superhero genre. He was DC’s chosen Superman, making his debut in Zack Snyder’s 2013 outing ‘Man of Steel’, before reprising the role in follow-ups ‘Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice’ and ‘Justice League’.

But then it all seemed as though the “Snyderverse” was struck with a lump of Kryptonite and the films began to stumble.

There was a glimmer of hope for Cavill around the time of ‘Black Adam’s release, when he popped up in a cameo as Supes, hinting at a clash between Dwayne Johnson’s Adam and the last son of Krypton, but the effective closure of that era of the DC movie universe (replaced by James Gunn’s vision, which has David Corenswet starring as another new take on the Superman character), scuttled that.

It was doubly tough for Cavill, who had been given the go-ahead to tease more from his version and had quit successful Netflix fantasy show ‘The Witcher’ to focus on his big screen career.

Now, though, there are refreshed rumors that he might end up in that other big bastion of the superhero genre, the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Speculation has swirled for a while that Cavill might end up making the leap to Marvel, but nothing concrete has landed so far.

He’s been linked to roles such as Captain Britain (as the name suggests, a UK take on Captain America), which we could see introduced ahead of the next Avengers team up.

And the formal announcement of ‘The Fantastic Four’ has led to renewed chatter about him playing Doctor Doom.

The current word comes from scooper MyTimeToShineHello on Twitter, who has shot down the Doom talk but points to Cavill accepting another role.

As always, we’ll have to wait and see whether this becomes anything more than talk.

What else is Henry Cavill working on?

Avowed nerd Cavill has been driving development of a live-action Warhammer 40,000 series set within the sci-fi/fantasy tabletop universe of armored warriors battling creatures at Amazon’s Prime Video service.

While that bubbles away in the background, he appeared in Matthew Vaughn’s spy comedy thriller ‘Argylle’, which though it saw him have limited screen time, has hints at the end that we might see more of his character. The box office disappointment of the movie ($77 million worldwide so far from a reported $200 million budget), even with backers Apple’s deep pockets, would seem to preclude that for now, but we’ll wait and see on that front.

More promisingly, he’s leading the cast of Guy Ritchie’s ‘The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare’ (due in theaters on April 19th) and his tongue-out moment in the trailer is already generating memes.

And beyond that, he may well pick up a sword again if/when Chad Stahelski’s planned remake of ‘Highlander’ starts shooting.

So even if Cavill doesn’t end up joining the MCU, he does at least have plenty to keep him occupied.
