He adds of the rumours that his time in the cape is finished: “I’m not going to sit quietly in the dark as all the stuff is going on. 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 wasn’t 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 also talks about the harsh nickname he was given at boarding school, admitting kids used to call him Fat Cavill.

He shares, “I was a chubby kid. I could’ve very well gone down the route of just accepting my lot in life and being like, ‘I guess I’m not going to do anything.’”

Cavill says acting helped him feel more comfortable in front of others: “It actually helped me survive. Even the kids who were nasty to me at times and took pleasure in squashing me—when I finished a play, they’d say, ‘Wow, you’re really good.’ And I was like, ‘Okay, this is where I draw my strength from.’”
