Warner Bros. is approximately a month away from releasing Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, the next DCEU superhero film, adding one of the most prominent characters ever to the faltering franchise. Even as anticipation grows for The Rock’s DCEU debut, one name lingers in the thoughts of many viewers as the franchise rolls forward: Henry Cavill’s Superman.

Henry Cavill’s Superman is rumored to be making a comeback in the DCEU, possibly with a cameo in the upcoming film Black Adam. Cavill’s portrayal of the legendary Man of Steel is one of the strongest aspects of the DCEU, but he hasn’t reprised the part since Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

Henry Cavill reported to be back with his classic theme

It has been reported that Black Adam will be confronted by Amanda Waller and Henry Cavill‘s Superman in its post-credit scene and not just that but also with John Williams’ classic theme. We haven’t seen the actor in the blue outfit since his previous appearance as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. But that hasn’t prevented some fans from guessing and believing rumors.



The DCEU’s first superhero was Henry Cavill’s Superman. He made his film debut with the franchise in Man of Steel, which is both a love letter to the Superman mythos and a complete retelling of the Man of Steel’s origin tale. Following Cavill’s co-starring roles in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, Superman has appeared in the DCEU via cameos, although without Cavill playing the character like in Shazam and Peacemaker.

There was also speculation that Cavill would make a surprise cameo at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, but when that didn’t happen, DC fans were understandably disappointed.


Superman vs Black Adam, when will we get this?

Despite the critical response to the films in which he appears, Henry Cavill is the comic book Superman, and Cavill has made it quite apparent that he is a Superman fan. Although his performances in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League were well received, Superman has failed to feature in another solo adventure since Man of Steel.

Given how well his first film established Superman’s corner of the DCEU, it’s worth revisiting in a Man of Steel 2, whether it takes place between the first film and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or continues Superman’s story after Justice League, possibly partially or entirely using Snyder’s plans for the character.

There has been no confirmation that Henry Cavill will reprise his role as Superman in Black Adam, but DC’s new direction and Dwayne Johnson’s statements suggest that it is very possible. Although Cavill’s Superman is unlikely to face off against Johnson’s Teth-Adam in Black Adam, a cameo appearance by Cavill is possible. Not only will Superman return to the foreground of the DCEU, but the much-anticipated clash between Cavill’s Superman and Johnson’s Black Adam will take place, albeit after the latter’s solo film.


Black Adam will be released in theatres on Friday, October 21.
