Despite being DC’s most famous face, Superman hasn’t the presence in the DCEU that fans may have expected. Henry Cavill was the latest actor to bring the Man of Steel to the big screen across three blockbuster flicks, but the British star has been absent since the debacle surrounding 2017’s Justice League.
With Ben Affleck finally returning as Batman next year in two movies, many are wondering when Cavill will be back to don the iconic red cape. The actor, who currently stars in Netflix’s The Witcher, was recently rumored to appear at San Diego Comic-Con to reveal his imminent return, but that proved to be false.
Although Cavill was absent from Comic-Con, a new report has offered a promising update surrounding his future as Superman.
Henry Cavill’s Future as DC’s Superman
During a conversation between Fandango’s Erik Davis and The Wrap’s Umberto Gonzalez on Twitter Spaces, the insiders offered a promising update on Henry Cavill’s future as Superman in the DCEU.
Gonzalez first noted that “the Multiverse has to stay” if DC wishes to push forward with both Sasha Calle’s Supergirl and Henry Cavill’s Superman in the DCEU.
DC currently has two Superman projects in the works – an HBO Max series starring the Val-Zod iteration and a rebooted movie from J.J. Abrams. Perhaps Cavill may be integrated into Abrams’ flick in order to bring more cohesiveness into the existing status quo.
Whether it’s with Henry Cavill or another actor altogether, Superman will almost certainly be back in some form soon. Fans can only hope this will mark the end of the faceless Man of Steel cameos that DC has been pushing over the last few years.
