Walter Hamada Had a Long-Range Plan For Superman’s Return

The Hollywood Reporters has claimed that the former DC Films head, Walter Hamada, was also working on a long-range plan for Henry Cavill’s return as Superman. Dwayne Johnson allegedly was not the only person who had the idea to bring Cavill back to the DCU.

The former head and Warner Bros. Studios had been planning a Crisis on Infinite Earths movie inspired by the now-classic Crisis on Infinite Earth comics of the 1980s. The comic series featured multiple timelines and heroes from different dimensional Earths coming together.

The film would have served as an Arrowverse crossover event series featuring superheroes like Arrow, Superman, Black Lightning, and more. This would have also included Henry Cavill’s return as Superman, just like Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck are set to reprise their roles in the 2023 film The Flash.

However, followed by Warner Bros’ merger with Discovery, the studio dropped all the plans. This led to the cancellation of several DC projects, including Batgirl. Walter Hamada almost quit as DC Films President followed by these cancellations, but he decided to hold the position till the release of Black Adam.
