Henry Cavill Reveals Whether Superman Will Be in 'Suicide Squad'

The actor who portrays the Man of Steel revealed that he would not appear in the supervillain flick, but he might appear in the potential sequel.

AceShowbiz - Although "Suicide Squad" is a film about DC supervillains, it will still features at least a superhero. Since Batman has been confirmed to make appearance in the movie, questions about the appearance of Superman begin mounting. In a recent interview, Henry Cavill revealed whether he would make an appearance in the upcoming movie.

The actor who portrays the Man of Steel firmly said, "No," when he was asked if Superman would pop up in the film. Cavill's answer is quite predictable as "Suicide Squad" will be mainly set in Gotham City. However, when asked about the sequel, Cavill answered enthusiastically, "I might be!"

As for Batman (Ben Affleck), he will undoubtedly make appearance in "Suicide Squad" as his arch nemesis the Joker (Jared Leto) is one of the main characters in the movie whom he will fight against. Since the "Suicide Squad" trailer garnered more viewers than the new "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" trailer, it seems like "Suicide Squad" doesn't need help from Superman to make it perform well.

Other DC films in which Cavill's Superman will make appearance after "Batman v Superman" are "Justice League: Part One", "Justice League: Part Two" and possibly "Man of Steel 2".

Based on DC comic books, "Suicide Squad" centers on imprisoned villains recruited by a government agency to perform black operations in exchange for clemency. The cast include the likes of Will Smith, Margot Robbie, Jai Courtney, Cara Delevingne, Joel Kinnaman, Viola Davis, Adam Beach and Ike Barinholtz. Directed by David Ayer, the movie is scheduled for a release in the U.S. on August 5, 2016.
