Henry Cavill’s Upcoming Film Lives Up To Bond & Man Of Steel 2 Expectations

Henry Cavill’s new movie can (virtually) fulfill the guarantees of his non-existent James Bond and Man of Metal 2 tasks. Henry Cavill is an actor firmly nonetheless in his prime, however has already collected a powerful arsenal of onscreen roles, from DCEU Superman to Geralt of Rivia, by means of Mission: Unimaginable.
Regardless of having no official connection in any respect to Ian Fleming’s spy, nonetheless, any given Cavill dialog is rarely removed from the subject of James Bond. There’s a widely-held perception that Cavill is about as good as a James Bond actor as you’ll discover, and with Daniel Craig handing in his license to kill, a emptiness has opened up in MI6… though there’s nonetheless no suggestion Henry Cavill would be the man to fill it.
A Cavill-fronted Bond 26 isn’t the actor’s solely unrealized franchise blockbuster audiences have spent years wishing into actuality. Henry Cavill made his mainstream breakthrough as Superman in 2013’s Man of Metal, earlier than reappearing in 2016’s Batman V Superman: Daybreak of Justice and the next yr’s Justice League (as properly its subsequent Snyder lower).
Although all 3 DC outings had been criticized for one motive or one other, Cavill himself earned widespread reward for his depictions of Superman, Clark Kent, and the dichotomy between each. Many among the many DC trustworthy have questioned whether or not a Man of Metal 2 may coax the most effective from Cavill’s portrayal, however the sequel stays stalling in improvement hell.
Whether or not you’re praying for Eon to announce Henry Cavill as their new 007, or hoping Warner Bros. green-lights a DCEU Man of Metal 2, Argylle may simply supply a style of each. Based mostly on the as-yet-unreleased e book by Elly Conway, Cavill stars because the titular Argylle – a grasp spy affected by amnesia.
In addition to current inside the similar espionage sub-genre, early indicators recommend Argylle will strike an particularly Bond-ian tone, with the movie’s director (Matthew Vaughn) confirming Cavill was chosen primarily for his suitability as a 007 actor.

Assuming Eon picks one other successor to Daniel Craig, Argylle can scratch the world’s Cavill-Bond itch. The premise isn’t precisely the identical, however Argylle guarantees a Bond-adjacent protagonist inside a conventional spy thriller plot, permitting followers to see what a Cavill 007 efficiency may’ve regarded like in a parallel universe.
And that’s not all – Argylle additionally carries a non secular connection to Man of Metal 2. As Warner Bros. tried and didn’t get a DCEU Superman sequel transferring over time, numerous administrators have come and gone. In 2017, Matthew Vaughn was hooked up to Man of Metal 2.
In response to studies, the Kingsman and Kiss-Ass director’s sequel would’ve been a feel-good throwback to earlier Superman movies, and a stark change from Zack Snyder’s darker imaginative and prescient. Although opinion on such a drastic gear-change was divided, Vaughn’s irreverent, self-aware, humorous fashion meshing towards Henry Cavill’s Superman prompted curiosity.

Argylle exists worlds away from superheroes in crimson underwear, however it’s nonetheless Matthew Vaughn directing a Henry Cavill protagonist in a good-time, genre-spinning journey flick. Perhaps not as straight comparable as James Bond, Argylle can however present some sense of the tone and really feel Matthew Vaughn’s Man of Metal 2 would’ve employed.
Neither the prospect of Henry Cavill taking part in James Bond, nor him showing in Man of Metal 2 is totally lifeless. The actor stays neck-and-neck with Tom Hardy and Idris Elba as a well-liked frontrunner for the 007 gig (though you’d think about portraying a really related hero in Argylle doesn’t assist his James Bond probabilities), and discuss of Man of Metal 2 isn’t going anyplace – particularly with multiverse mechanics now very a lot en vogue. If The Superb Spider-Man 3 remains to be on the desk, so is a Henry Cavill Superman sequel. Whereas future outings as Bond and/or Clark Kent stay dormant, nonetheless, Argylle may show a worthwhile tonic.
