‘He’s the Superman of our generation’: The Rock Keeps Henry Cavill’s Return Hopes Alive, Fans Say He’s Trying Real Hard to Bring Him Back


The San Diego Comic-Con didn’t have a Henry Cavill appearance as suggested by some rumors. Even though very earlier only it was told to take it with a pinch of salt as it’s too good to be true still the fans were fully hyped up. Still, thanks to the raging rumors, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson who is the primary associate of this Henry Cavill link-up think when asked about the blue and red-suited Kryptonian, went on to praise him as the Superman of our generation”.

All these rumors started spreading when a mysterious report came that Henry Cavill’s going to have a surprise entry at the DC Panel in San Diego Comic-Con 2022 and would probably be in the next Black Adam movie starring Dwayne Johnson and Pierce Brosnan or going to announce his solo project but the tables were turned when things didn’t go that way.

So even though Henry Cavill was nowhere to be spotted in the SDCC 22 yet the Rock has once again mentioned him in an interview and once again the hopes are ignited among the fans. In an interview with when he was asked if he and the Man of Steel actor have ever discussed what the showdown between Black Adam and Superman look like to which Johnson replied:

“Henry is a buddy and he is a phenomenal Superman and Henry Cavill is the Superman of our generation, with respect to the other Supermans in the past.”

Dwayne Johnson went on to describe his friendship with Henry Cavill by saying that “often they have tequila together when they meet up”. He also added that like so many people who root for Superman to win, he also roots for him:

“[Y]ou’ve got a lot of people who advocate on Henry’s behalf and root for him to win, and I do root for him to win. And at the end of the day, is a phenomenal Superman.”

This last statement felt like, it was indicating the tussle between the Superman actor and the studio which doesn’t give much of a nice response to if they are planning to bring him back or not. But according to the statement, it does feel like the Rock is also trying as much as he can to bring him back in the DC movies.

What are the chances of Henry Cavill’s Return?

It was not the first time, that Dwayne Johnson said something about Henry Cavill. Earlier also when a fan asked about their showdown in the upcoming movie, he tweeted that the secret to his success has always been his quality to listen to the fans. This also added up to the hype surrounding him. So after the rumors when yesterday he was asked the same question, this time the answer was ambiguous. Even though the fans are hyped, there’s a lack of certainty in it.

It seems that similar to the fans, The Rock also wants the Kryptonian and the Black Adam to come face-to-face but, in the end, it’s all up to Warner Brothers. It will be their ultimate call which will decide something.

Despite Superman rumors, the more accurate cameo in Black Adam would have been Zachary Levi’s Shazam but there’s also no news on that. We also got the trailer of Shazam 2: Fury of the Gods but there’s not even a glimpse of Black Adam in it so it will be really exciting to watch what the studio is up to.

Black Adam is going to release on October 21, 2022
