Henry Cavill has said that he's still open to the possibility of emulating the Man of Steel onscreen. 

In a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter, the actor said there is a lot of scope for him to expand on the character. "There is still a lot of storytelling for me to do as a Superman, and I would absolutely love the opportunity," he told the outlet.

Cavill also spoke about how he improvised on a scene, where Superman kills Zod, played by Michael Shannon. 

In the film, the superhero's origin story, Clark Kent discovers his Krypton heritage and vows to protect Earth when the surviving members of his species try to invade the planet. In the final battle scene, he defeats Zod by snapping his neck, but ends up falling to the ground and screaming soon after. 

Cavil said that killing Zod gave Superman a reason to never kill again. There's an opportunity for growth after that, to explore the psyche of Superman as a deep, seemingly invulnerable god-like being but with real feeling on the inside," he explained.

He added that "the cape is still in the closet," possibily giving hope to fans of the actor and the DC superhero.
