Right, so here’s some interesting information for you guys – Henry Cavill was in the Disney offices in London a few weeks back and I’m being told that it was to meet with Marvel representatives in person. [Editor’s note: We received this information back in May, but opted not to publish it until we could verify the source.]
This comes to me from a source close to Disney.
What I was told was that Cavill and members of his team were meeting with people at Marvel Studios so that they could talk face to face.
Was this for an upcoming project? Well, I wasn’t told anything about that.
I was informed that Cavill visited Disney’s London offices and “was flanked by a number of people”.
My source went on to specify that Cavill was there to “have a chat with some of Marvel’s people in London”, and that he was very intent on seeing people “face-to-face”.
However, my source did add that everyone was adhering to the correct COVID-19 protocols, i.e. everyone were wearing masks in the building and social distancing as much as they could.
Henry Cavill and Marvel Studios have been talking
Cavill’s been quite a busy guy of late.
He’s already been working on The Witcher Season 2, and it looks like Netflix wants to get the ball rolling on Season 3 asap.
It was also revealed that Cavill will be the lead in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming spy thriller film called Argylle.
However, he’s also attached to the Highlander reboot, another film called The Rosie Project and will be starring as Sherlock Holmes in Enola Holmes 2.
So, could he really fit in a Marvel movie into all of that.
Well, knowing how hard-working Cavill is, I’m pretty sure he’ll make it work.
This all comes after there have been countless rumours that Marvel’s Kevin Feige is interested in getting Henry Cavill to play Captain Britain.
Now, I find that to be rather hard to believe given the fact that I was promised that role myself by Feige.
However, I must admit that he would be a very good choice for the role.
The only thing against him is the fact that his schedule is getting very busy and he is still technically Superman in the DCEU.
However, that could all change very quickly, especially given how much of a mess the DC Comics movies are in right now.
Will Cavill join the MCU?
So, will Henry Cavill end up joinng the MCU?
Well, it’s looking like both parties are interested in one another.
Again, it’ll come down to a lot of things.
There’s the question of Cavill’s busy schedule.
Can he really fit Marvel movies into it? I’m not so sure.
There’s also the question of payment.
Henry Cavill won’t come cheap, and Marvel’s been looking to cast lesser known actors in some of their newer roles recently.
Finally, there’s also the question of whether Cavill really does fit the part they have him in mind for.
If the stars align, then we could end up with Cavill in the MCU, possibly as Captain Britain.
It’s seems as though it’s a role Marvel is interested in bringing into the MCU at some point.
