Justice League star Henry Cavill transforms into the Kingdom Come version of Superman in a stunning new fan edit.
Many stars like Ezra Miller and Ben Affleck are returning to their superhero roles, but one actor who hasn’t been announced to return for a future DC Extended Universe project is Superman actor Henry Cavill (although we’ll see new scenes with him in the upcoming Zack Snyder Cut of Justice League). There have been reports that Cavill will appear in several upcoming DC Films projects, but a Superman standalone film doesn’t appear to be in the cards at this time.
Fans are eager to see Henry Cavill’s Superman return in some way with so much source material left to adapt. There’s one storyline in particular that we have already seen on television with Brandon Routh playing a Kingdom Come-inspired version of Superman in the Arrowverse. Created by Mark Waid and Alex Ross, Kingdom Come is among the most popular arcs in the history of DC Comics, with the story following an older Superman and other members of the Justice League. Since we might be waiting a long time before Cavill dons the Superman tights once again, Instagram user Javier Sanchez has created a concept design that shows Cavill with the Kingdom Come costume and look.

Here is the official synopsis for Zack Snyder’s Justice League:
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Directed by Zack Snyder, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Amy Adams, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, J. K. Simmons, and Ciarán Hinds.
