Henry Cavill’s DCEU debut as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel will be completing a tenth anniversary next year, and we couldn’t be eager enough to witness the release of a sequel for the movie. However, he might just be back for real this time, according to reports.
The long wait for Cavill’s return as Clark Kent has been talked about in too many articles by now, with various insiders reporting this and that about his much sought-after return. But new reports have emerged from a popular industry insider who hints at not only a return for the character but also at a standalone movie/sequel to Man of Steel!

Man Of Steel 2 In The Works, Henry Cavill To Return
One of the most recent developments regarding the plethora of rumors about Henry Cavill‘s return as Superman has come at a time when DC’s next big movie starring Dwayne Johnson titled Black Adam is on the verge of release.
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!
Henry Cavill Fans Rejoice At Man Of Steel Sequel Rumors
It’s been nine long years of enduring Warner Bros. constantly changing plans for the DC Extended Universe. Fans have been victims of the sudden cancellation of a big-budget movie (Batgirl), abrupt changes in movies during post-production (Joss Whedon’s Justice League), cast member drama (Amber Heard and Ezra Miller), and so on.
But now comes a time of hope and relief as the latest reports suggesting a second Man of Steel movie has emerged, and it only adds to the hype that Henry Cavill will be returning as is written on his contract to fulfill his job of working on one more movie as Superman.
Fans are pretty ecstatic too, with Twitter rejoicing at the rumors-
