Black Adam sets off an entirely new era for multiple characters both new and old. Henry Cavill’s Superman also sees himself in a position of a multi-appearance deal with the greenlighting of Man of Steel 2 finally giving a start to the long-awaited movie. However, what if one were to say that Henry Cavill could not have ever seen a return for himself?

With David Zalsav and Dwayne Johnson’s appreciation of Henry Cavill’s character, and the actor who portrays him, seeing his return was only a welcoming surprise. The lead actor in the movie has always been open about his want to see the red cape flying in the sky with the two characters facing off with each other.

The Close Call Of Having A Different Superman Rather Than Henry Cavill

It had almost been a different face that the audience would have seen flying in the Kryptonian cape according to the plans of Walter Hamada, the previous head of DC. Following the plans of Hamada, he had set plans for there to be a black Superman, who would have also appeared in Black Adam. 

The Jumani star has always shown his adoration for Henry Cavill and how much he enjoys seeing him as Superman. In doing so, the actor all but confirms that Cavill will appear in the “surprise” cameo at the conclusion of Black Adam. Insiders are speculating as to whether the calls were made to boost the film’s opening weekend box office figures, move Superman to his own chess square, or even both.

Whatever the case, Cavill’s return to DC, which was not without some drama of its own, is unquestionably centered on Dwayne Johnson. Dany Garcia, his ex-wife, and business partner at Seven Bucks Entertainment serves as the actor’s manager. Henry Cavill is additionally represented by Garcia.

Walter Garcia’s Plans Outside Of Henry Cavill’s Superman

Neither Henry Cavill nor Superman had originally been intended to appear as Black Adam. The concept for the cameo came up during reshoots for the film earlier this year, but Hamada, the executive who has worked tirelessly over the past four years to move DC beyond the period in which one director, in this case, Zack Snyder, had an excessive amount of influence and could command a whole slate for years, nixed the notion.

One of Hamada’s concepts for Superman involved presenting a Black Superman through a multi-decade-long tale by author Ta-Nehisi Coates. Dwayne Johnson did not want to take no for an answer and hence went out of his way to contact other authorities to get his request approved because he wanted The Witcher actor in the movie for certain.

Black Adam would be out in the theatres on October 21st, 2022.
