Superman actor Henry Cavill confirmed he’s returning for more DC movies. Fans have grown tired of Warner Bros. indecisiveness when it came to handling the Superman role. One day, Cavill is Superman. Another day, Cavill is done as Superman. Finally, audiences get a confirmation from the actor himself, along with support from Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson.
Black Adam Spoiler Warning. The exciting news comes after the Superman actor donned the iconic blue and red suit in the Black Adam mid-credits scene. The new DC antihero film starring Dwayne Johnson premiered last week and The Rock has been hinting at a Superman cameo months before.
The Black Adam mid-credits scene was Cavill’s first appearance as Superman since last year’s Zack Synder’s Justice League. Before that, it was the 2017 version of Justice League.
On Instagram, the Superman actor posted a profile shot of himself as Superman before appearing in a selfie video addressing his fans. Cavill wanted to wait until after people had the chance to watch Black Adam before speaking about his return.
“But now that plenty of you have [seen the movie],” Cavill said, “I wanted to make it official: I’m back as Superman.”
He was thankful for the fans being patient. “A very small taste of what’s to come, my friends. The dawn of hope renewed,” Cavill wrote in the caption. “Thank you for your patience, it will be rewarded.”
Cavill’s Superman appearing in the brief mid-credits scene in Black Adam, which was one of the most exciting moments of the film, teases a future standoff between the legendary Kryptonian and Dwayne Johnson’s all-powerful Teth-Adam aka Black Adam.
Fans are also calling out for a Man of Steel sequel. The original film debuted almost 10 years ago. There’s already news about the a Man of Steel 2 movie and how Warner Bros. Discovery is looking for a writer with Mission Impossible: Fallout’s director Christopher McQuarrie as top choice to helm the Superman film starring Cavill.
See the Superman actor in his blue suit and red cape once again in Black Adam. Now showing in theaters.
