Henry Cavill returns as Superman
Over the past few months there has been a stir about whether Henry cavill should or should not reprise the role of Superman. In the same way that it happened with Ben Affleck, the performance did not like everyone equally. However, it seems that between the desire of the actor himself that we have recently seen assuming the role of witch in the Netflix series, The Witcher; and the Snyder’s Cut everything seems to indicate that it will be something that will eventually happen: He will be wearing the Superman cape again.
At least The Culture Nerd so affirms it. In an exclusive published by them, they indicate that the actor has reached an agreement with Warner Bros for three new films and several cameo options. That would mean that in total it would be between 5 and 6 films in which we would see the actor again like Superman.
Logically, removing the cameos, it does not mean that the films will be of Superman alone, although it does seem that everything indicates that the first of all will not have any other DC superhero. It won’t be, as you may recall, a Ben Affleck-like comeback. Which will return as Batman, but in The Flash movie to give consistency to the extended universe of DC. Because if the actor we saw in Justice League playing Flash is the same, it is normal that the role of Batman is also carried out by the same asset from the Zack Snyder film.
The new Superman movie
The information published by said medium, although you always have to be cautious and wait for an official confirmation from the parties involved in said agreement, could not go wrong at all. Because already during the month of May the renowned Deadline medium published that without a sequel to The Man of Steel in sight, Henry Cavill was in talks to reprise his role as Superman.
At that time there was talk of his return in other films, which could be cameos in Shazam 2, Black Adam or Aquaman 2. Which fits with the aforementioned. But it is also true that his last images in the Snyder Cut with the black suit caused a lot of interest to see the actor again and alone.
So, without much additional information, the only thing that is being commented on his solo comeback is that he could do it under the Directed by Joss Whedon. Yes, the same director who did not get good reviews for his work ending The Justice League, but we have to remember that he is the architect of hits like The Avengers and The Avengers: Age of Ultron.
For now we have to wait, see what Warner Bros says and cross our fingers so that, in the case of wearing the red cape again, Henry Cavill confirms that there is currently no better man of steel.
