The San Diego Comic-Con or SDCC has been one of the most anticipated events for 2022 for every comic geek or nerd that exists. The impact of the information revealed in the comic con from different studios is so high that most fans cannot wait to gather it all up.
So you can just imagine how horrible DC fans must have felt when their all-time favorite Henry Cavill failed to show up, especially since they all expected news about the future projects involving Superman.
Henry Cavill Rumored To Pay A Visit At SDCC To Discuss Superman’s Future
On Wednesday, a rumor regarding the alleged appearance of Henry Cavill at the then-upcoming, San Diego Comic-Con rose up high in the DCEU Fandom.
Most of the fans were more than excited to be able to discuss the return of Superman if announced and even held hopes to see their most beloved director Zack Snyder be there as well.
The report by Deadline stated that they had heard a “buzz” that Henry Cavil may be surprising the fans at SDCC this year with news about his DC character from Man Of Steel, Superman.
Like every rumor, this too began to spread through the Superman fandom like wildfire, burning every fan with third-degree burns.
All of this was supposed to happen at Warner Bros.’ Saturday Hall-H Panel. This truly hyped up the DC fans who then proceeded to swarm the Hall-H Panel with expectations as high the Mount Everest.
DC Fans And Their Broken Hearts
Of course, just like on Mount Everest, an avalanche was upcoming and the fans were not, under any circumstances, prepared for it. It is no doubt that DC suffered huge losses in the trust of its fans as they all realized, with a broken heart, that the rumor of Henry Cavill showing up at SDCC was just that; a rumor.
No amount of consoling could calm down the fans when Warner Bros. only introduced their already announced Black Adam and Shazam! Fury Of The Gods movies.
According to sources, it was never even considered to bring Henry Cavill to SDCC this year. There was no arrangements to announce any upcoming Superman projects at all.
The term "fake news" gets thrown around a lot but THIS is the real fake news. XD It would have been nice to see Henry Cavill as Superman again under a new director. https://t.co/9Gpmuzeauc

I'm a Big Fan of #HenryCavillSuperman and I really want him back in Big Screen. But I think this is just a FAKE RUMOUR. Like every time @wbd @warnerbros will disappoint us. So I'm not Excited at all. But if it's true then It will be EPIC#SDCC #HenryCavill #Superman#DCEU https://t.co/u0PXkzLgL5

Deep undercover fake sources tell me the Henry Cavill story about him returning as Superman is completely made up & exists in no reality whatsoever.

This blow to the fans was deepened when DC proceeded to decline any further notices about its other upcoming projects like The Flash and Aquaman: The Lost Kingdom
Black Adam will be released on HBO Max on October 21, 2022 and Shazam! Fury Of The Gods will premiere on the same platform on December 21, 2022.
