DC Films’ future has been questionable as a result of Warner Brothers’ recent merger with Discovery and David Zaslav’s takeover of the famed company. Fans, on the other hand, have clung tenaciously to a few treasures from DC’s back catalog during the last ten years. One such film is Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder and starring Henry Cavill as Superman.

Man of Steel was the film that started the DCEU as we know it, but there hasn’t been a sequel since its release in 2013. However, things look to be changing. That time has arrived, when Cavill flew into the mid-credits scene of Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam upon its long-awaited release.

He was only on screen for a few seconds beside The Rock, telling the newly-crowned anti-hero that they needed to chat, but the most essential part of that sequence from a big-picture perspective was that Cavill returned back to the most iconic role of his career to date.

According to sources, the film is currently being developed with Henry in mind, and it will be part of the wider DC Extended Universe.
