On his role as Superman nothing has been confirmed about his continuity or not as Clark Kent in the DC film universe, although with such a tight schedule with so many roles and the idea of Warner Bros. to bet on a new black superman at the movies, Henry Cavill is left with a foot and a half outside of DC.
