With almost no time left for DC’s Black Adam to hit the theaters, the Henry Cavill fever still persists in the air. As the movie dropped its Darkness clip, the eagle-eyed fans took no time to spot certain things that directly point toward Superman’s appearance in the movie. Henry Cavill’s Superman is something that the fans will give anything to watch right now. His absence from DCEU for so long as well as the studio’s lack of any update regarding him have forced the fans to dig their eyes into anything that’s coming from DC and to search for the Kryptonian in it.

The Black Adam has been undoubtedly one of the most anticipated movies of this year. As if Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson’s DC debut was not enough for the hype, the constant Superman rumors fueled the hype further.

Is Henry Cavill all set to return?

Dwayne Johnson revealed various times how he wants his character to face off with Henry Cavill‘s Kryptonian superhero. Since then we also saw many cryptic tweets being hinted at Superman’s cameo in Black Adam. But the fans also faced a shock when Superman’s long speculated Comic Con appearance also didn’t come true. Now insider KC Walsh took to his Twitter to express his thoughts about how the new clip hints that we may get a surprise in the Black Adam movie.

KC Walsh cleverly picked up the dialogue from the clip where Black Adam is confronting somebody and comments on himself being an unstoppable force by saying:

 “There is no one [on] this planet that can stop me” 

Walsh then took his own take on it and raised the speculation that the opposite personality may turn out to be none other than the Clark Kent superhero. 


Some earlier rumors suggested that the movie may feature a headless cameo of Superman similar to the Shazam! movie where Cavill’s body double did that role. This would also not require the WBD to further talk with Henry Cavill as their relationship is already more than strained. But surprisingly, when a fan re-tweeted Walsh’s Tweet and said that it might be a headless cameo, Walsh replied with a big “NO”


Even though, nothing can be confirmed still it would raise a roar at the theaters if by chance we spot a flying Henry Cavill sporting his Superman costume in Black Adam

What are the chances of Black Adam and Superman’s showdown?

Now although fans are trying harder to collect pieces of Superman evidence from anything that’s coming from the Black Adam promotions still it mustn’t be forgotten that the studio we are talking about here is Warner Bros. And the reputation of the studio says it well.

While some fans may debate that after the makeover they will focus on theatrical hits and event films so they might do some good, still Cavill’s appearance is something we all desire but can’t expect.

Furthermore, some interviews from the cast and crew also suggested that Henry Cavill’s cameo might not see the face of reality. Now it will be worth watching if really something unexpected occurs. But even if Cavill is absent from the movie, the electrifying visuals of Black Adam that we already spotted promises a special experience.
