Black Adam is rumored to be featuring a Superman cameo in its post-credits scene where he appears alongside Amanda Waller. Together they both confront Teth Adam to try and convince him to join their side. It’s unclear if the man donning the suit will be Cavill, but he’s contractually allowed to do so.

Now comes a much more exciting report regarding Cavill’s return, and it’s not going to be a mere cameo but a whole new movie about his character by Warner Bros!

Industry insider David Faraci, former editor-in-chief of the ‘Birth. Movies. Death’ website revealed the spicy news on his Marvelvision podcast. He gives major credit to the Black Adam star for making it happen-

“I got some more information about this. It’s not, like, specific. It’s all behind-the-scenes stuff that I thought was kind of fascinating, which is that the reason why Henry Cavill has returned as Superman in Black Adam is because The Rock demanded it.”

“Like, he went hard, full-court press on Warner Bros. and made them go to Henry Cavill and they had to sign a new deal with Henry Cavill, including saying they were gonna develop a new Superman movie. And it was all because The Rock insisted.” 

He further stated, almost like a confirmation-

“Not only is Henry Cavill gonna be in Black Adam, my understanding is they’re working on a Henry Cavill Superman movie.” 

Dwayne Johnson being cast for Black Adam may have struck up a fortune for all Superman fans who are in love with Henry Cavill’s version of the character. In the case that these reports stand the test of time and confirmation, you lot will have a lot to thank The Rock for!
