After spotting Henry Cavill for the last time in the widely controversial Justice League, the studio filled the audience with doubt regarding his return. Moreover, Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice despite being appreciated by some fans were not great at the Box Office. But thanks to the entry of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson in the DC with Black Adam, our Superman finally returned to the bandwagon of DC movies.
Following a long-induced hype by the former WWE Wrestler himself, we finally spotted Henry Cavill in the mid-credits scene of Black Adam. It gave us the very first glimpse of the forthcoming storm at the box office when the Enola Holmes actor and The Rock will face off against each other in the future.
Recently during an interview with Extra TV, the former Witcher actor said that he wants to explore his character more. He also assured that the new regime is actively working on a glorious future for the Last Son of Krypton.
“And I’m so excited to dig further into this character and to explore this character some more and make that I give the audience everything that they deserve with this character.”
Henry Cavill also acknowledged The Rock, Hiram Garcia, and Danny Garcia who were all part of the prime reasons why the actor could finally return to his fan-favorite character.

This new DCU set up under James Gunn and Peter Safran is also raising hopes among the fans that the studio might bring the visionary Zack Snyder back to direct the sequel to his first DC movie.
While Henry Cavill was having an interview with MTV’s Josh Horowitz, Zack Snyder also popped up and revealed that he is eager to work again with the actor soon. But on the other hand, the actor’s comment on an enormously joyful Superman might force Snyder out of the picture. But it is sure that the sequel is in development.
Superman is also slated to appear in a showdown with The Rock Superhero in the future as promised in the mid-credits scene of the Black Adam. According to some reports, Henry Cavill is also supposed to appear in The Flash next year along with Sasha Calle’s Supergirl. So we don’t have a clear picture yet of his upcoming list of projects.
