We were always certain that henry cavill he had not finished his adventure as Superman. The truth is, we saw very little of him in just three productions: Man of Steel from 2013 (his only solo film), batman v superman in 2016, and Justice League from 2017 and the Zack Snyder cut for 2021.
Couldn’t be enough but the inactivity of the actor and the hero for five years, seemed to say something else. For this reason, for a long time there was talk of the end of Cavill in DC despite the hope of the fans to see him again with the red cape.
Critics said that Henry Cavill, now 39, was “too old” to play him again. They assured that Warner would look for a younger actor for imitate the successful strategy of Batman, which left out Ben Affleck to make way for Robert Pattinson in a new story, that although it was not about his origins, he did need someone younger.
It might make sense, but nothing was guaranteed either. However, this 2022 opened two possibilities. The first when Zack Snyder lit the candle of hope during Superman Day. The director uploaded an image of him with Henry Cavill on the set of Man of Steel who had the legend of “My Superman past present and future“.
Yes, a lot of nostalgia and everything, but… would it happen in the end? Well, it seems that at least Warner Bros is really looking forward to Cavill coming back.. or so say some sources close to the study.
Henry Cavill would return as Superman… or that’s what Warner would like
According to a report from The Hollywood ReporterWarner Bros would be interested in making the second part of man of steel 2013. The report comes from a source close to the studio, who said that they would also have the return of Henry Cavill himself on the radar.
The project for Man Of Steel 2 is in an early stage of development, but at the moment it is known that charles roven will be one of the producers of the film. Currently, they are looking for writers for the film and even the one for Christopher McQuarrie (who already worked with Cavill on fallout) to enter the game, but it seems that his incursion was ruled out because he will be working on the next installments of Mission: Impossible.
Already in the previous months this rumor was talked about quite strongly, but with the information from The Hollywood Reporter things change. On the one hand, it is speculated that Henry Cavill’s Superman would have a cameo at the end of Black Adamwhich obviously will only be confirmed when the film opens on October 20.
Also, Dwayne Johnson -protagonist of Black Adam– has spoken of his expressed interest in making a film that pits his character against the so-called “Man of Steel”. All this takes force since Danny Garcia (Johnson’s ex-wife, manager and production partner at Seven Bucks Production) is also a manager for Henry Cavill. There she would have given herself the link to convince the British actor to return to DC.
Of course, this lacks official confirmation, but it is already rumored that the announcements are about to be released. once the antihero movie starring Dwayne hits theaters.
Cavill’s other projects

Here he will share a cast with Sam Rockwell, Bryce Dallas Howard, Bryan Cranston, Catherine O’Hara, John Cena, Samuel L. Jackson and Dua Lipa (in her acting debut).
Another of the most anticipated, but without a release date, is the third season of The Witcher on netflix. Cavill has played the protagonist, Geralt of Rivia, since 2019 with the premiere of his first installment, reprising the role in 2021 for the second season. The Witcher It is one of the most successful series on the streaming platform.
Another Cavill title for Netflix is the second part of Enola Holmes. In the first installment of 2020, the actor gave life in a secondary role to Sherlock Holmesbrother of the main character, Enola, played by Millie Bobby Brown (who has been revealed will receive about 10 million dollars for his work).
