DC fans are eagerly waiting for the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman since his last appearance in the 2021 Justice League. The actor himself has said that he would love to play Superman again. And it seems like Warner Bros Discovery’s new leadership has finally started considering what fans want to see in future DC movies. The new CEO of Warner Bros Discovery, David Zaslev has said that he wants to bring Cavill back to the DCEU, and it may be finally happening. The studio has two movies lined up for the DCEU, which may take the cinematic universe in a new direction.
Henry Cavill is expected to appear in both of these films. His appearance would not have much screen time, but it would be enough to confirm that he would continue playing Superman in future movies. These appearances can also be a hint towards another solo Superman movie.
Henry Cavill Shooting Additional Superman Scenes for The Flash
After Ezra Miller finally came out of hiding and started the additional photography for The Flash, the film got back on track. Not just Miller but Gal Gadot and Ben Affleck were also spotted around the same area where the additional photography for The Flash took place.
Gal Gadot, Henry Cavill, and Ben Affleck were recently spotted in LA.
It led to rumors that the holy trinity of DC would make a comeback in the upcoming film. Rumors about Cavill’s return once again took a hike when Henry Cavill was spotted in Los Angeles with his girlfriend.
The Witcher star is seen in a blue t-shirt, clean-shaven, and has a hairstyle that is somewhat similar to Superman’s. Rumors had that the actor was in Los Angeles to shoot additional Superman scenes for The Flash.
The look has led fans to be convinced that he is definitely going to be in the upcoming film. Reports have come out that the writers of the film made a slight change in the script. It was Sasha Calle’s Supergirl, who was expected to appear in The Flash, but she was replaced with Cavill’s Superman after the alleged changes.
Fans Share Their Excitement About Henry Cavill’s Return as Superman
Fans are super hyped with the news and took Twitter to share their excitement. While many said that Los Angeles is the home to many Hollywood actors, so this is not enough to prove the claim. But it is just enough proof for fans who have been eagerly waiting for his comeback.
DC fans are as always excited to see Cavill as Superman once again. One user even said that they hope Warner Bros brings back the whole cast of Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

I really really hope this is true. Bringing back the entire cast of ZSJL is such a win for the DCEU.

He’s most likely in flash and black Adam. But let’s not act like LA isn’t basically the capital of the entertainment industry either lol

Why Would Warner Bros Bring Back Henry Cavill as Superman?
Henry Cavill has previously said that he has one more contractual appearance as Superman. Considering that the actor is rumored to be in Black Adam and The Flash at the same time, there is a possibility that he may have extended his contract.
After the whole Ezra Miller controversy and the backlash, The Flash faced, the studio had to come up with something to save the movie at the box office. What could have been the best way to do it? Bring back the most anticipated character from the DCEU back.
Many believe that this is the only reason Warner Bros is considering bringing back Henry Cavill. However, the studio has claimed that it is taking a new approach with the DCEU, and Cavill’s comeback can be part of this new approach.
Fans are even convinced that the studio has already planned another Superman movie. It is only the reason why Cavill has agreed to reprise his role in the two upcoming films. No matter what is the true reason behind his appearance, fans are super excited about it and are eagerly waiting for his comeback.
Black Adam is set to release on 21 October 2022.
The Flash will release on 23 June 2023.
