"The cape is still in the closet," he said, adding: "It's still mine. 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 want 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." Meanwhile, the British actor was also seen in 2018's "Mission: Impossible -- Fallout" alongside Tom Cruise. He is also seen in Netflix's "The Witcher".
