Dwayne Johnson Fought For Years To Bring Back Henry Cavill’s Superman in Black Adam Because ‘Fans will always come first’

Henry Cavill's Superman in Black Adam

Man of Steel 2 is underway and DC fans couldn’t have been happier. Most of the credit for Henry Cavill’s return as Superman goes to Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson, who worked out an agreement between Cavill and Warner Bros.

The return of Henry Cavill in the much-awaited Superman sequel was almost like a prayer point for every DC fan ever since the release of Justice League in 2017. Fans would live with their heads held high for five long years without any concrete news regarding Cavill’s return. But here we are, as Dwayne Johnson proves that with just enough belief and hard work, you can get what you want!

Dwayne Johnson Says It Took Years To Bring Back Henry Cavill As Superman

Only yesterday, Henry Cavill gave an official confirmation from his side by posting an Instagram announcement video in which he says that his return as Superman is happening. The British actor informed fans of arguably the world’s most popular superhero that he will be getting a return to the DCEU.

Everyone who has seen Black Adam knows of Cavill’s return after the actor’s cameo at the end of the movie in the mid-credits scene. The 39-year-old actor showed his fans a new photo in which he dons the Superman costume as he concludes the video with these words-

“The image you see on this post and what you saw in Black Adam are just a very small taste of things to come.”

Cavill’s return was long-awaited, and it would not make sense to create a DC movie franchise without its flagship superhero (not to say that Batman is anything less).

Dwayne Johnson would happily agree with anyone who’d argue that a DCEU without Superman is just not right. The Baywatch star wrote a statement in correspondence with Cavill’s Instagram video on Twitter, revealing that bringing Cavill back into the franchise took years!

Welcome home, Clark Kent. Teth Adam will see you in the future soon, and so will the fans!

Fans Couldn’t Thank Dwayne Johnson Enough For Superman’s Return

It’s the dawn of a new beginning, or we can say continuation, of Superman’s journey in the DCEU. Henry Cavill’s most popular role in a movie was slowly fading into obscurity as Warner Bros. was going through multiple problems of its own, seemingly forgetting to incorporate the caped superhero into the DCEU.

But Dwayne Johnson has done an excellent job in working towards a vision of a greater DCEU with everyone acting as a team.

Reports of the 50-year-old actor cooking up an agreement between Warner Bros. and his now co-star for Black Adam (as seen in the cameo) turned out to be true, and fans can’t thank him enough.

Straight facts-

That’s a lot to ask for, but not entirely impossible-

A hilarious video-

Louder for the people at the back! –

Man of Steel 2 is probably the next stop for DC fans if they want to see Henry Cavill in the DCEU, but as the actor himself teased us, this is just a small taste of things to come.

Black Adam is currently running in theaters.
