This stunning new piece of fan art reveals what Justice League star Henry Cavill could look like as the Kingdom Come version of Superman for the DCEU.
A digital artist who goes by “JS Comic Art” on Instagram has shared his own take on what Henry Cavill could look like playing Superman with a look directly inspired by Kingdom Come, the beloved Elseworlds storyline from Mark Waid and Alex Ross. The expression shown in the below image actually matches up with official DC Comics art (shown above, left).
Here’s Justice League star Henry Cavill with the Kingdom Come Superman look for the DCEU franchise.
Henry Cavill’s future as Superman is currently uncertain amid reports on contentious contract negotiations and Warner Bros. and DC planning to focus their efforts on introducing Supergirl to the DCEU. Henry Cavill’s planned Superman cameo in Zachary Levi’s Shazam! movie was cut after negotiations to reprise his role fell through, though the actor has expressed his interest in returning to the role if asked.
While Warner Bros. does not appear to have plans for more DCEU movies with Henry Cavill as Superman, Brandon Routh is set to appear as the Kingdom Come version of Superman in the Arrowverse crossover event Crisis on Infinite Earths on The CW. Brandon Routh will be joined by Supergirl‘s Superman Tyler Hoechlin and Smallville‘s Superman Brandon Routh.
Henry Cavill was last seen as the DCEU’s Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Here’s the synopsis for the movie:
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.
Justice League is now available on Blu-Ray, DVD, and Digital HD. Stay tuned for the latest news regarding Henry Cavill, Superman and the DCEU!
