The last time Henry Cavill wore Superman’s cape was in 2017 and the movie “Justice League.” Good news, the actor has just posted a message on his Instagram account confirming his return to being the Kryptonian!
The promise of the post-credits scene of Black Adam
He hadn’t picked up Superman’s cape for a long time. Apart from a few reshoots for the Zack Snyder’s Justice League, Henry Cavill hasn’t appeared as Superman since Justice League in 2017. Since the failure of the Zack Snyder/Joss Whedon film, the actor had distanced himself from the DC character. And until recently, he was very reluctant to take back the cape, leaving the fans in a long uncertainty. Yet, since 2017, Superman has appeared twice in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Once in Shazam! and once in the series Peacemaker. But in both cases, the character’s face was maskedto conceal the absence of Henry Cavill.
With the post-credits scene of Black Adam, Henry Cavill finally formalizes his return in the skin of Superman. Those who have already seen Jaume Collet-Serra’s film know that the kryptonian come and say hello to Black Adam. The sequence in question was shot very recently. Indeed, Warner validated it at the last minute, after negotiations to bring Henry Cavill back which lasted several months.
Henry Cavill confirms his return
On October 24, 2022, the actor posted a short video on his Instagram account to confirm his return to the Superman costume. He accompanied his post with the following caption:
A tiny taste of what awaits you, my friends. The dawn of hope is renewed. Thank you for your patience, it will be rewarded.
In his video, Henry Cavill Confirms He’s Really Back In Superman’s Clothes. And that this sequence in Black Adam is just a taste of what’s to come in the DCEU. Henry Cavill also thanked his internet users for their patience. Normally, Superman should both return for the project Man of Steel 2, recently mentioned by Warner and in a possible Black Adam 2, which Dwayne Johnson is already working on. In any case, one thing is certain: Superman is back!
