Henry Cavill, who plays Superman in Justice League and all its franchise accepted the mistakes of DCEU in a candid interview and added that Wonder Woman is the first step in the right direction.
We all know that except for Wonder Woman, all other DCEU films received negative reviews by critics, even though they performed well at the box office. Whether it was Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or Suicide Squad, all these films got a lot of flaks from reviewers and audiences for the treatment meted out by the makers.
Cavill, who is a die-hard fan of comic books and its characters, was upset as an actor and as a fan to the kind of response he got, and spoke in detail to Rake magazine. “Even if Marvel didn’t exist, we’d struggle. There was a style they [DC] were going for, an attempt to be different and look at things from a slightly different perspective, which hasn’t necessarily worked. Yes, it has made money but it has not been a critical success; it hasn’t given everyone that sensation which superheroes should give the viewer,” said Cavill.
Though this might sound controversial, Henry Cavill only spoke his mind to something that even DCEU is aware of. He only made a few observations based on the money they made at the box office and the critics’ reviews. This only goes to prove that Cavill and the makers are aware of the mistakes they have made, and are ready to turn it around in their favor.
He then points to the huge critical, and commercial success of Patty Jenkins’ and Gal Gadot‘s Wonder Woman that released this year. He said, “I think it is a wonderful time for the female hero. It is the perfect setting in social politics right now, we need it, we want that perspective, and Wonder Woman has struck at the ideal time and has become a phenomenal success, which is fantastic. Any success within the superhero universe, especially within the DC Universe, is wonderful, because I want to keep telling the Superman story; selfishly, that works for me.”
Henry Cavill is extremely honest and expressed his thoughts freely as he wrapped it up saying, “I feel like now the right mistakes have been made and they haven’t been pandered [to], and we can start telling the stories in the way they need to be told. It is even better to come back from a mistake or stylistic error into the correct vein because it will make it seem that much stronger. Wonder Woman was the first step in the right direction.”
Justice League is all set to release in theaters on November 17, 2017. The film stars Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Jason Momoa as Aquaman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Amber Heard as Mera, Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor, J.K. Jeremy Irons as Alfred Pennyworth, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Diane Lane as Martha Kent, Simmons as Commissioner Gordon, and Connie Nielsen as Queen Hippolyta.
