Man of Steel Star Henry Cavill Says A Justice League Film Isn't Likely At This Point

We've known for some time of Warner Bros. plans to get a Justice League film off the ground by the year 2015, but it doesn't seem very likely according to Superman himself; Henry Cavill. Since Man of Steel the amount of speculation from DC fans has raised bringing out questions about the other DC heroes and their films. Man of Steel was a box office success which caused rumors about the sequel to the film being released next year and Justice League the year after.

Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has managed to beat around the bush when being confronted with questions about these Justice League rumors in numerous interviews despite indications that he's Warner Bros.' top candidate for bringing the team to the big screen. Well now Superman himself; Henry Cavill, has given his own thoughts on the future of a JL film. Cavill suggests that a Justice League film may be hard to pull off with all the heroes, and insists that fans shouldn't get their hopes up just yet. In an interview with ABC News Cavill claimed there was no rush for a Justice League film and said the following:

“Justice League could be great if done correctly. It’s a very tough one to do because the DC Comics heroes are all godlike in their power so in the real-world setting we’re telling our story in it’s going to be tough to achieve that and it has to be done very delicately and with a lot of thought. So it won’t be right away, certainly not, or I hope it’s not anyway. It may take some time building other movies and other characters and then introduce them together in one way or another.”

“I think it would be great to do but I don’t think it’s around the corner.”

It's more likely that we'll see a sequel to Man of Steel or a Superman and Batman team-up film to introduce the rebooted Batman before Justice League rolls around. I personally believe that WB should look to Marvel as an example, and in order to make each of their characters feel more real and grounded and help audiences connect with them they should have solo films before all teaming up in Justice League. If anything at least have team-up films to introduce rebooted version characters that audiences have already seen on screen solo, such as the Superman/Batman team-up and possibly a Flash and Green Lantern one too (If Ryan Reynolds doesn't return that is).
On another note Zack Snyder has expressed the possibilities of seeing Lex Luthor and Superman's only weakness; kryptonite in a Man of Steel sequel:

“[People have been like ‘there’s no kryptonite in the movie’ and ‘there’s no Lex Luthor in the movie’, and by no means am I saying those things don’t exist, I’m just saying he didn’t run into them here [this time].”

Luthor's company LexCorp was hinted at in the skylines of Metropolis during some action scenes in Man of Steel, so his inclusion in the next film is almost inevitable. As for the kryptonite, it really goes hand in hand with any storyline that involves Luthor and it's really the only thing that he can use to physically threaten Superman. It could also be a hint at the inclusion of popular Superman villain Metallo, who is basically a former soldier who was turned into a cyborg the runs on kryptonite. And guess who funded that project, none other than Lex Luthor himself. So with Snyder hinting that we could be seeing both Lex and kryptonite in a sequel, don't be surprised if we find the Man of Steel facing off against Metallo once the sequel hits theaters.
So what do you think of Warner Bros. taking their time with a Justice League film? Do you think it's a smart move? Also would you like to see Superman face Lex Luthor and Metallo in a sequel? Sound off below.
