It doesn’t look like Warner Bros. will take long to welcome another Kryptonian to the realm of live-action DC films. Now, according to a fresh report, Warner Bros. may also utilize Henry Cavill in Ta-Nehisi Coates and J.J. Abrams’ next Superman movie.
Recent leak about the new Superman Movie:
As per the apparent rumor, J.J. Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Superman Reboot will be placed inside the DCEU and will star an African-American actor as the superhero. This will not, however, replace Henry Cavill’s Clark Kent/Kal-El, who will continue to function in this version. Obviously, as with any leaks, these allegations should be taken with a grain of salt. However, the notion of some other Kryptonian in the universe being driven by Cavill’s Superman could surely transition well on screen and be readily incorporated into the existing DC universe.
Cavill’s statements about returning to the DCEU:
The comeback of Henry Cavill has been circulated several times now, even eliciting a statement from the actor himself. Cavill sadly rejected the rumors as fantasy. Last year, he stated:
“The rumors get wilder and wilder by the day. The amount of speculation, the stuff I read on the Internet, is extraordinary and sometimes frustrating. It’s when you see people stating stuff as fact. Like, ‘No, that’s not the case. That hasn’t happened, and that conversation isn’t happening.'”
While supporters of Henry Cavill were upset to learn that the new Superman will not center on his interpretation of the character, this latest rumor gives them hope that he might appear.
Meanwhile The CW Has Been Doing Its Own Thing With Superman & Lois
Superman & Lois launched in January 2021 and featured Clark and Lois Kent as they raise their twin kids, Jonathan and Jordan Kent, in Clark’s village after Martha Kent’s demise. When it was initially released, it was a huge hit, and it was promptly renewed for a second season, which premiered in January 2022. The CW has now officially extended Superman & Lois for a third season. The dates are yet to be announced. However, since both past seasons aired in the middle of The CW’s season, it’s safe to assume it will broadcast in January 2023. The series will most likely be 13 episodes long, as both previous seasons were.
