Rebooting the DC films with Man of Steel starring Henry Cavill, we were shown the new face of DC. Taking a more dark and gritty approach in contrast to Marvel, the movies, unfortunately, did not do well in comparison.

The DC movies failed to compete with its further installments in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. This led to the two main faces of DCEU, Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill getting unofficially canned.


Henry Cavill’s many rumored returns

Since his last performance as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League, we haven’t seen the actor don the blue suit. But that hasn’t stopped fans some speculating and succumbing to rumors.

It was highly expected for him to join the DC panel at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con and announce a new Superman movie. But the actor was nowhere to be seen, as he had caught the coronavirus disease whilst filming The Witcher Season 3.


Does Superman return in Black Adam?

Henry Cavill’s return in Black Adam was also teased, considering that Dwayne Johnson who portrays the titular character, campaigned to see his character face off against Superman. Furthermore, since they have the same agent, the process seemed much easier.

A few weeks ago, Black Adam reportedly went through some reshoots, with Dwayne Johnson stating the new footage will truly challenge the might of Black Adam. Considering Superman is one of the few to do so, it only further confirms the fact that Henry Cavill is returning.

Further adding credence to the speculation, Geekosity reported that Henry Cavill did shoot new scenes for Black Adam, but only for a post-credits scene. While we won’t see more of the character in the movie, this will confirm his return to the DCEU.
