It’s such a privilege and an honor to be back and I’m just…incredibly excited about working with the whole team and bringing optimism, hope, and, a joy to the character. So, everyone has something to really believe in and really follow”

After a tumultuous time, the people feared that the Mission Impossible actor had left the franchise for good after not getting enough credit.


“So you’re going to Comic Con? And I was like ‘No, no i’m not’ and they were like ‘ahhhh, but you are, aren’t you’ and I was like, no really, I’m not” the actor started saying.

With the big secret at the back of his head, Cavill recalled that the people were so disappointed when he actually didn’t turn up. “Okay, patience patience, just it woke up” Ali plumb, the film critic blamed this on Spider-Man: No Way Home as he would not believe Andrew Garfield or anyone ever again.

With his return, DCU finds hope once again in one of the core characters in the cinematic universe. With the importance given to the Justice Society of America (JSA) in Black Adam, the DCU will expand beyond the people’s hopes. Fans of DC rejoiced after James Gunn was declared co-president of DC Studios, along with Peter Safran.

Although there are not many updates regarding the next Superman project, we know that he is all set to make his big appearance on theater screens again, adorning the iconic suit.
