DCEU fans have been hoping for Henry Cavill to reprise his role as Superman and, more specifically, a Man of Steel sequel ever since Comic-Con earlier this year. Dwayne Johnson, who recently made his DCEU debut with Black Adam, also touted Cavill as the “Superman of this generation” and supported the actor’s return to the franchise, as if the fan chant needed any more encouragement.

To everyone’s amazement, Henry Cavill‘s return was hinted at in a Black Adam mid-credits sequence. The actor addressed his Black Adam cameo and what it means for his DCEU character in a special video posted on his Instagram account. Henry stated in a post and the video, “I wanted to formally announce that I had returned as Superman. What you saw in Black Adam and the image you see in this post are just a little preview of what’s to come. There are many things for which I am grateful, and I will discuss them later, but for now I wanted to express my gratitude to you all for your patience and support. It will be rewarded, I guarantee.”

Two Man of Steel
Man of Steel 2 has reportedly been in development for some time. The Hollywood Reporter recently claimed that Michael De Luca and Pam Abdy, the executives of Warner Bros. Pictures, are allegedly seeking for writers for a Man of Steel sequel. It’s unclear how and where the sequel to Superman’s stand-alone film may pick up from, even with Cavill back in the cape and the Black Adam mid-credits scene hinting at a battle between the Man in Black and the Man of Steel.

Return of Zack Snyder
Following reports that Henry Cavill might reprise his role as Superman and that the studio was planning a Man of Steel sequel, with Christopher MacQuarrie possibly writing the script, Watchmen actor Jackie Earle Hayley expressed his opinion on social media, saying that Zack Snyder ought to return to direct the picture. The performer wrote, “This is a job for… Snyderman! Although Snyder’s return would be challenging given that he has signed a deal for numerous films with Rebel Moon.

It appears that the wait for information about Henry Cavill’s Superman comeback will be a little longer.
