After the much-awaited return of Henry Cavill as Superman in the DCU, the higher-ups are still unsure about more Superman projects. Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stated that he had made a lot of effort to bring back Henry Cavill in Black Adam.
Although the people undeniably loved Cavill, there has been still no further confirmation from the higher-ups at DC Studios regarding any future projects involving Henry Cavill’s Superman taking place.
Dwayne Johnson Continues To Fight For Henry Cavill’s Superman
Following the newly appointed CEO of Warner Bros. Discovery, Henry Cavill was brought back to reinstate his position in the new era of DC. It was revealed that none more so than Dwayne Johnson wanted to see Cavill in the suit of Superman once again. He admitted that it took years of strategic conversations with the higher-ups to agree on The Witcher actor’s return.
After Black Adam received much success, its post-credit scene was especially loved by all as it featured Henry Cavill once again in the suit of Superman. Although this should be confirmation enough of his role in the upcoming DC projects, the higher-ups and Dwayne Johnson are still not sure. In his latest Twitter post, the Hobbs & Shaw actor got candid about Cavill’s return to the DCU.
“At the end of the day, the studio was not bringing Henry Cavill back inexplicably and inexcusably. But we’re not gonna take ‘No’ for an answer. This has been years in the making to bring Cavill back and years of strategic conversations”.
The Jumanji actor further continued,
“Cavill made a Superman cameo in the post-credits scene for Black Adam, teasing his possible return as the superhero. For now, the only thing we know for sure is that Henry Cavill’s contract covered his Superman role in Black Adam. That’s it. While DC studio executives remain tight-lipped about the future vision for the DC Universe, it may only be a matter of time before we learn about the long-term plans for the DCU arguably most important superhero.”
Stating that Henry Cavill is the best Superman (with respect to other actors), Dwayne Johnson is hell-bent on seeing more of Superman’s side and importance in the DCU. He has probably already planned a fight scene with his character of Black Adam vs Henry Cavill’s Superman.
Seeing his statements, Dwayne Johnson doesn’t seem too sure about what behind-the-scenes are unfolding at Warner Bros. Discovery. It would although be a tragic story if they replaced Cavill with any other actor as the people have come to love and adore him over the years of storytelling in the DCU and in other projects.
Henry Cavill’s Statements on The Rumored Man of Steel 2
While promoting the Millie Bobby Brown starrer Enola Holmes 2, Henry Cavill sat down for an interview. During the run of the interview, Cavill talked about his excitement for the return of Superman in the DCU and lightly confirmed that Man of Steel 2 will indeed be happening.
When asked about the storyline or the script of Cavill’s upcoming projects, the actor jokingly told that “There are no spoilers for me”. He further added that a reboot of the Superman franchise may be in the works and as of yet, the script had remained unfinished. The Enola Holmes actor further stated that he liked the way of development since they were essentially building it from the ground up.
Although people would love a Superman movie right about now, due to inexplicable circumstances or deals gone wrong, Warner Bros. Discovery and DC Studios might not give the people what they want.
Black Adam is available to rent/purchase from Amazon with an unconfirmed streaming date (as of now).
