Industry insiders have suggested that Henry Cavill’s time as superman may not be on his feet and that he could potentially return to the DC Extended Universe as the Man of Steel if Warner Bros. has his way. However, the actor himself may need to do a little more convincing to don the cape again.
Will Warner Bros. get Henry Cavill to play Superman again?
During a conversation on Twitter Spaces, The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez and Fandango’s Erik Davis revealed the news (via CBR). Davis said he “heard a story that they asked [Cavill to return]and he doesn’t want to do it,” before Gonzalez claimed that those at Warner Bros. “like Discovery [Cavill] as Superman”, suggesting that he is in their eyes and future plans.
Cavill first followed in Clark Kent’s footsteps in the 2013 film Man of Steel. He returned in 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017’s Justice League. Exactly where Davis heard that the actor doesn’t want to make a comeback isn’t clear. Cavill has expressed a desire to play the hero again in the future, not until December 2021.
There are many rumors floating around about the future of the DCEU, with some suggesting that a direct sequel to Man of Steel may be in the pipeline. Others say Cavill could star in Ta-Nehisi Coates and JJ Abrams’ upcoming Superman flick. Reports alongside these rumors also claimed that Cavill would be appearing at San Diego Comic-Con in July 2022 to promote the aforementioned projects, but that didn’t happen. However, Dwayne Johnson stoked the flames after raising questions about who would win in a fight: Superman or his character Black Adam.
