Henry Cavill is finally getting another Superman movie from Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.

Warner Bros. is on the early stages of development on a new Superman movie featuring British actor Henry Cavil. Charles Roven is on board as a producer, continuing a relationship with DC Entertainment that started with 2005’s Batman Begins.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. is currently looking for a writer for the Superman project, which is essentially a sequel to 2013’s Man of Steel. The studio’s wishlist includes Christopher McQuarrie, the mastermind behind the last two Mission: Impossible movies.

How Henry Cavill’s Superman return came together

SPOILER ALERT: Henry Cavill makes an appearance as Superman in the post-credits scene of Black Adam, suiting up as the DC Comics icon for the first time since Joss Whedon’s Justice League reshoots, which took place in 2017. It’s one of the worst kept secrets in Hollywood and something Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson has been teasing for weeks now.

The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Dwayne Johnson and his producing partner Dany Garcia are the two people behind Henry Cavill’s return to the role of Superman. Johnson and Garcia convinced Warner Bros. executives to meet with Cavill, starting a “furious round” of negotiations that ended before Labor Day. Cavill then shot his Black Scene scene in mid-September.

Henry Cavill’s Superman was last seen in 2017’s Justice League and Zack Snyder Cut of the movie on the WarnerMedia streaming service HBO Max. However, Cavill didn’t shoot any material for the Snyder Cut, which included fresh scenes with stars like Ben Affleck and Joe Manganiello.
