Henry Cavill, the worst reviews with ‘Argylle’ as James Bond

Fans were eagerly awaiting the beginning of a Henry Cavill era after Superman, since most were curious to see what the actor could bring to the big screen. The actor’s time at DC had ended when James Gunn renewed the landscape of the DC Universe with new actors for the front-line characters.

Cavill also left his famous Netflix series The Witcher. Of course, leaving two big roles wasn’t a threat to his career, as he has a line of slates keeping him busy as always, but his upcoming release Argylle has failed to impress critics, as the film received an overall score poor. And all this with the shadow of James Bond looming… Has his prestige and his 007 options been ruined?

There is no doubt that Henry Cavill has redefined some roles, such as Superman and Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher, but what lies beyond these roles that have made him incredibly famous? Cavill appeared as the main character in Matthew Vaughn’s most recent release, ‘Argylle’. And yet, the PG-13 action comedy was not well received by critics.

The film scripted by Jason Fuchs (I Still See You) has a cast formed by Bryce Dallas Howard, Sam Rockwell, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, Dua Lipa, Ariana DeBose, John Cena and Samuel L. Jackson that aims to create a thriller action with surprising style. For Vaughn, the film was an ode to ’80s action thrillers like ‘Die Hard’ and ‘Lethal Weapon.’

‘Argylle’ was made with a whopping $200 million production budget. Upon domestic release in the United States and Canada, the film is expected to gross between $15 and $20 million in its opening weekend. To match the cost of the film, it must gross more than $500 million worldwide. This raises serious questions for the actor and the film, as on its initial UK release it only scored a 37% Rotten Tomatoes rating.

Joaquín Gasca is an expert in competitive sports, technology and motorsports. A while ago he hung up his cleated boots to focus on paddle tennis and running… age-related things, he complains. But he also signs up for any bombing that has to do with pushing his body to the limit, whether driving an Aston Martin or going to the office on a scooter.

He is very Atlético de Madrid, so when footballers like Marcos Llorente or Álvaro Morata have starred on the cover of Men’s Health, he was there to write them. He just ran his first marathon for Runner’s World, and as he passes in this universe, he’s already looking for the next one to get under 3 hours. If you have to test any type of paddle tennis racket, vehicle or watch, it is no problem. Even sneakers. Whatever you need in sports equipment.

Joaquín graduated in journalism from USP-CEU in 2013, but since 2009, when he joined the University newspaper, he began working as a 360-degree “journalist” in digital and print. The next steps of his almost 15-year career were taken doing culture and sports at Shangay magazine, until he joined Hearst a week before the start of the pandemic in 2020. He is also a professor of social networks and new technologies at Universitas Senioribvs CEU and is part of Hearst’s Innovation HUB to research new trends.
