Earlier this month, there were rumors that Cavill was in talks with Marvel to join their movie universe. The British actor is set to join the MCU as it undergoes a massive change after Avengers Endgame, the conclusion of Marvel’s Phase 3.

Cavill could definitely sign up to play a brand new hero. The Superman actor has made a name for himself by playing a paragon in the DC Comics movie universe (DCEU).
The star would feel right at home taking on the role of someone like Cyclops, Wolverine or even Mr Fantastic – especially after the Iron Man and Captain America stories in the previous team-up movie came to an end.
On the other hand, Cavill can play a culprit. Given that the star has played such a good guy for so long, would he rather be a villain in Marvel’s next adventure?
Either way, Ladbrokes has given Cavill incredible opportunities to somehow play in Avengers 5.

The gambling company has given Cavill 1/2 chances of claiming a role in Avengers 5.
Ladbrokes’ Alex Apati said: “Henry Cavill has reportedly been in talks with Marvel chiefs and odds suggest he’s a shoo-in to appear in Avengers 5 as a result.”
The star is said to have met with Marvel executives in recent weeks, but the nature of their discussion was not detailed.
Whether he signs up as a hero or a villain, fans of the franchise will no doubt be thrilled to see the heartthrob don a cape again.
Avengers 5: Cavill played Superman in three movies
In addition to playing Superman in the ongoing DCEU film series, Cavill has also made an appearance in Mission: Impossible – Fallout, The Man From UNCLE and Enola Holmes.
Cavill has been busy lately playing Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix fantasy epic The Witcher, where he continued to cement himself in geek culture.
However, the question remains who could play Cavill in the MCU.
A number of major characters will appear in the near future, including all the Fantastic Four, the members of the X-Men, and numerous villains.

Wolverine, who was famously played by Hugh Jackman for over a decade, could be a good choice for Cavill.
The muscular star could hold his own as one of the most vicious X-Men stars out there, but he could also take on a more subdued role.
Dr Doom is one of the meanest characters out there and is definitely more of a thoughtful villain than many others.
Cavill’s involvement might instead mark him as the perfect choice for Dr Doom – but would he be able to stay behind the character’s metal mask for multiple films?
Meanwhile, the next major Marvel movies are Doctor Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and Spider-Man: No Way Home.
Both entries will delve into the fantastic realms of the multiverse, introducing a collection of new characters along the way.
Could Cavill line up to become one of them?
The Marvel movies are now available on Disney Plus.
