Reports have surfaced online indicating Henry Cavill is set to make a surprise appearance at San Diego Comic-Con in order to make a huge announcement on future Superman appearances.
Henry Cavill first played Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel, before appearing as the character again in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. While his future in the role has been uncertain for a while now, it sounds like he is set to return as Kal-El.
With DC reportedly eager to revitalize the Man of Steel, it sounds like the company is getting ready to announce Superman’s big screen return with Henry Cavill.
Superman Returns To Comic-Con
Warner Bros. will be hosting a presentation in Comic-Con’s coveted Hall H this Saturday, July 23. So far, the only DC films confirmed to be featured in the presentation are Black Adam and Shazam: Fury of the Gods.
However, it now appears that DC Films have been hiding something special up their sleeve for their SDCC appearance this year. A report from Deadline suggests that Henry Cavill will be appearing during the Warner Bros. presentation in order to “talk up more Superman.”
Exactly what this means is not yet clear. Whether Henry Cavill’s Superman is getting another standalone movie, a crossover appearance in another DC project, or a combination of the two is yet to be seen, though details will likely be made clear by Cavill himself at Comic-Con this weekend.
The news comes as something of a surprise after earlier reports that DC was looking to replace Henry Cavill as Superman on the big screen, but fans of the actor will be pleased to hear his return is suddenly looking a lot more likely.
Henry Cavill made his last appearance as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Here is the synopsis:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
Both versions of Justice League are available to stream on HBO Max. Stay tuned for all the latest news on the future of the DC Universe and be sure to subscribe to Heroic Hollywood’s YouTube channel for more original video content.
