Fans have been worried about a potential recasting of the character to which people have grown attached. New rumors are paving their way around the internet about a cameo of Superman in the Dwayne Johnson starrer Black Adam movie, which will potentially create a pathway for the Kryptonian to return in Man of Steel 2.

The only catch and the downside of the rumors is… it cannot be Henry Cavill. The actor has not been seen anywhere in the DCEU or panels of the entertainment giant. The character has already been recast in HBO’s Peacemaker with Brad Abramenko. With a potential sign of Superman seen flying once again, neither we nor DC can be sure if they want The Witcher actor to take the lead.

Dwayne Johnson had the lead role in DC’s League of Super-Pets (2022). But what some people do not know is that he went out of his way to have a cameo of Black Adam’s dog meeting Superman’s dog in a post-credit scene in the movie! The actor was also booed on stage during the San Diego Comic-Con 2022 when an indirect answer alleged that the former Superman actor may not appear anymore in the DC universe.

The only movie that can save Warner Bros. Discovery from a potentially failed year is Black Adam as Don’t Worry Darling failed to perform well for the critics. Dwayne Johnson has been busy working around the clock for his upcoming Black Adam movie which will release on 21st October 2022 in theaters.
