‘Man of Steel 2 without Zack Snyder? No thank you!’: Henry Cavill Fans Shocked as WB Reportedly Moves Ahead With Superman Sequel Without Godfather of DCEU

Zack Synder Man of Steel 2

While Henry Cavill’s return to the DC bandwagon has raised storms, fans are also disappointed with Zack Snyder’s absence from the project. The return of Superman is undoubtedly the hottest topic in the world of pop culture right now. The fans were frustrated as the main asset of DC had been absent for a long time from the DCEU. But now it seems that the fans also have another demand from the studio as they want Zack Snyder to make the sequel of Man of Steel.

To be precise, Henry Cavill’s Superman is reported to be spotted in the upcoming movie Black Adam starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Even this iconic return also could not have been possible without The Rock. Now there’s also been reports that DC is going to make numerous projects on the Last Son of Krypton.

Zack Snyder’s troubled past with DC

The return of The Witcher actor to his iconic Superman role was teased by our beloved Dwayne Johnson several times after his Black Adam was announced. The actor who was crowned with this role for the first time in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel impressed the fans in no time. To the audience, he seemed like the character emerged from the pages of the comics. But following 2017’s Justice League, the superhero didn’t appear in any DC project before finally making his return this year.

One of the obstacles that was also preventing Henry Cavill’s return was a studio troubled with its own problems. After the disaster of the Justice League, the studio faced intense backlash over the whole fuss they created with the director of the movie, Zack Snyder. The 300 director had a wide vision with DC where he had many plans after Man of Steel, Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. The fuss was created mainly after Zack Snyder left Justice League due to his family problems and DC had to bring the Avengers fame Joss Whedon to complete the project.

After Joss Whedon and the studio’s unified alteration of Snyder’s script and a desperate try to create a Marvel-Esque project, the product we got was nothing less than a disaster. Further, a long online brawl between the fans and the studio finally led them to release the original cut on their streaming platform. But despite several requests, they still refused to progress any step on SnyderVerse.

But now the reports of Henry Cavill’s return without any statement on Zack Snyder have once again raised concerns among various unhappy fans.

A Superman without Zack Snyder worries the fans

Even though the arrival of the Mission: Impossible-Fallout actor is certainly going to happen, the studio is still searching for the captain who would lead the Man of Steel sequel. This has created quite a buzz among Henry Cavill fans who are afraid that the movie will be trash if Zack Snyder isn’t involved in it.

The root cause of this fear can be blamed on the version of Superman they saw in the Josstice League. Although the box office numbers of Man of Steel and Dawn of Justice didn’t speak highly about the movies, still those works by Zack Snyder and the portrayal of Superman were widely appreciated. If reports are to be believed the director of Mission: Impossible movies Rogue Nation, Fallout, and the upcoming two installments, Christopher McQuarrie can be the captain of this ship.

On the other hand, The Suicide Squad and the Guardians of The Galaxy mastermind James Gunn can also be the chosen one. It is recently reported that Gunn presented two secret scripts to the studio though the director doesn’t usually go for solo projects. But as of now, there’s no news on the possibility of Zack Snyder’s movies which has led numerous fans to take over the Internet to show their frustration.

Disappointing reactions by the fans

Take a look at some of the reactions that show how disappointed the fans are in not getting any update on Zack Snyder yet.

The time will only answer if the Zack Snyder fans will have their wish fulfilled by this new DC regime or not. But it can’t be denied that following the merger, the studio is trying hard to bring the DC cinematic universe back on track. Now it will be exciting to wait for the announcement of the name who would lead Superman’s cinematic future. Before that, it will be exciting to watch how Black Adam presents the Kryptonian’s return after so long.

Black Adam is going to release on October 21, 2022
