The Superman depicter takes to his Instagram account to share a photo of himself doing training and writes in the caption that he has to make sure he is 'bigger than Green Lantern.'
"Since I came off the ol knee injury I've been steadily increasing my training work load," Cavill writes in the caption. "Nothing funny to post here, it's deadly serious because I've got to make sure that I'm bigger than Green Lantern....Wait whaaat?" he adds, much to the fans' excitement.
Since I came off the ol knee injury I've been steadily increasing my training work load. I know it's irritating when people say this but it genuinely does feel so good to be back in it. I'm not destroying myself every day. Just working towards improvement by pushing hard enough to elicit change. Nothing funny to post here, it's deadly serious because I've got to make sure that I'm bigger than Green Lantern....Wait whaaat?
The caption sparks speculation that Cavill may tease fans about a Green Lantern appearance in either "Man of Steel 2" or "Justice League". This is not the first time Cavill gives some hints about Green Lantern. Earlier this month, Cavill posted two photos on his Instagram account and added #GreenLantern hashtag in the captions.
"Kal looking for Hal #GreenLantern," he wrote alongside one of the photos. Cavill might alude to Hal Jordan, one of Green Lantern members which will appear in the upcoming "Green Lantern Corps".
Cavill will reprise his role as Clark Kent/Superman in "Man on Steel 2". "Kingsman: The Secret Service" director Matthew Vaughn is reportedly eyed to helm the movie.
In the meantime, Cavill will return as Superman in superhero team-up movie "Justice League". Also starring in the movie are Ben Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman, Ray Fisher as Cyborg, Amy Adams as Lois Lane, Ezra Miller as The Flash, Willem Dafoe as Nuidis Vulko and Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.
"Justice League" is scheduled to hit U.S. theaters on November 17.
