Henry Cavill has been making headlines all week and fans couldn’t be happier. Superman made a recent comeback in the DC film, Black Adam, and things are looking good for the superhero.

A brand new video from Cavill confirms the future of Superman. The actor stopped by Josh Horowitz’s Happy Sad Confused podcast for a live taping, and confessed that he almost landed the leading role in 2006’s Casino Royale.

“They told me I was close.They told me it was ultimately down to, and this is what I’ve been told, it was just down to me and Daniel (Craig), and I was the younger option,” the Man of Steel star said “They obviously went with Daniel and I think it was an amazing choice to go with Daniel.I probably wasn’t ready at the time. I think Daniel did an incredible job over the past movies, so I’m happy they made that choice. It was a fun adventure at the time, and definitely gave a boost to my career. That was the key element of it. I was getting a lot of auditions, which I went to, which went really, really well.”

“We’re working out where to go with him, we’re talking that through. There isn’t a script and we can’t come up with one until we decide how we’re going to approach the next film because, really, it’s a reinvention of Bond.
