London [UK], November 2 (ANI): Actor Henry Cavill, who portrays the role of Superman in DC movies, has confessed that the approach of the DC Extended Universe has not necessarily worked.

The 34-year-old actor has revealed that he understands why they haven't always been well received by fans and critics, Express.co.uk.

Cavill noted, "Even if Marvel didn't exist, we'd struggle. There was a style they [DC] were going for, an attempt to be different and look at things from a slightly different perspective, which hasn't necessarily worked."

Adding, "Yes, it has made money but it has not been a critical success; it hasn't given everyone that sensation which superheroes should give the viewer."

The 'Man from U.N.C.L.E.' star shared that Patty Jenkins` 'Wonder Woman', has shown the way forward for the DC Extended Universe.

He said that the critically acclaimed movie marked the ''first step in the right direction'' for the franchise.

"I think it is a wonderful time for the female hero. It is the perfect setting in social politics right now, we need it, we want that perspective, and 'Wonder Woman' has struck at the ideal time and has become a phenomenal success, which is fantastic. I feel like now the right mistakes have been made and they haven't been pandered [to], and we can start telling the stories in the way they need to be told," explained Cavill.

"It is even better to come back from a mistake or stylistic error into the correct vein because it will make it seem that much stronger. 'Wonder Woman' was the first step in the right direction," he added.

Henry Cavill will be next seen reprising the role of 'Man of Steel' in Zack Snyder's 'Justice League' alongside Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Ray Fisher.

The movie is slated to release on November 17. (ANI)
