The director of Avatar 2 wasn’t able to attend his film’s premiere in Los Angeles. But you know who was able to grace his presence there? Henry Cavill.
The Man of Steel star was spotted at the Dolby Theatre on Monday evening in a dashing navy blue suit with an even more charming smile tugging at his face as he posed in front of the cameras during the grand premiere of James Cameron’s Avatar: The Way of Water.
Seeing the British actor on the blue carpet for the most anticipated sequel of all time was a huge astonishment for the DC fandom, to say the least, since they’re all trying to read between the lines with all their might, so to speak. Does this mean Henry Cavill is planning to join forces with Disney? Does it mean he’s on the verge of bidding farewell to DC Studios once again? Nobody knows, but fans certainly seem to be sure that the Dawn of Justice star might just end up changing teams.
Henry Cavill Spotted at Avatar: The Way of Water‘s LA Premiere
Just last week, the world premiere of the much-anticipated science fiction/adventure film took place in London on December 6, where the movie’s cast was joined by James Cameron for the lavish event. But Cameron unfortunately had to sit the Hollywood premiere out due to catching COVID-19.
The LA premiere of Avatar: The Way of Water was not only attended by the obvious star cast including Zoe Saldaña, Sam Worthington, Kate Winslet, and Sigourney Weaver, to name a few, but even Henry Cavill made a surprising appearance at the event, bewildering DC fans who now seem to be fully convinced that the Justice League actor is going to join forces with Disney in no time.
Cavill has had a rocky relationship with Warner Bros. in the past and even after he returned to the DCU as Superman, his path wasn’t free of any hurdles. Things are especially more serious at present now that the new DC heads have announced that the studio will be scrapping certain projects completely as sources claim that Man of Steel 2, the much-awaited sequel of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel starring Cavill, is also going to be shelved.
So, with a bleak future ahead of him at DC Studios, fans’ suspicions with regard to Cavill walking out on them and joining Disney instead aren’t entirely unwarranted. At the same time though, the veracity of the said doubts is unaccounted for, so it could very well also be nothing but simple confusion. But it looks like people are not going to be persuaded otherwise.
Fans Believe Henry Cavill Might Just Leave the DCU for Disney
Cavill was all smiles at the premiere of Avatar 2, and the moment pictures of him from the occasion went viral, fans flooded Twitter with questions and speculation as they tried to decipher some secret meaning behind The Tudors star attending the Disney event.
While some placed their bets on how this meant Cavill is planning on switching teams from DC to Disney, others, who were simply too baffled, were busy ensuring if he wasn’t in Cameron’s sci-fi sequel in any way or if it meant he’s going to be a part of it in the future.
Wait Henry Cavill in a Disney premiere?!?! What’s happening!!!? Nah I’m just glad he might move onto their lines

There are high chances that Cavill’s presence at Avatar 2‘s premiere is tantamount to nothing as drastic as people are making it out to be. But given the current scenario at DC Studios which is tainted by such uncertainty, specifically with regard to the actor’s future as Superman, it is more of a never say never situation.
Avatar: The Way of Water will be out in cinemas on December 16, 2022.
