Despite Henry Cavill‘s departure from the role of Superman, his influence has left an incredible mark on the superhero landscape. As filmmaker James Gunn steers the ship of the new DC cinematic universe (DCU), intriguing hints suggest that Cavill’s Superman is far from forgotten, hinting at a captivating narrative continuity that bridges the old and the new. During a conversation with Nestor Bentancor on YouTube, Angel Manuel Soto, the director of Blue Beetle, shared that the upcoming DCU film will feature connections to the 2013 movie Man of Steel:

“Waking up in Mexico to the news that [Zack] Snyder wants to see it too, a director that I respect so much, that his films are an immense influence… Even in ‘Blue Beetle,’ there are some references to ‘Man of Steel’ that we made out of honor and respect for the work and art of Zack Snyder. Also, seeing David Ayer sharing it… It’s like, ‘WOW, brother!’ How nice it feels to have that support from people that one respects and that the fans also respect.”

And this is likely to evoke feelings of nostalgia among Superman fans as they will relate the details and moments with their gone hero in the upcoming movie Blue Beetle featuring Xolo Mariduena as Blue  Beetle.

Back in 2001, Henry Cavill embarked on his journey in the entertainment world. However, it was his portrayal of Superman in Zack Snyder‘s Man of Steel in 2013 that catapulted him to global fame and recognition. Taking on the iconic superhero role significantly elevated Cavill’s status in the industry, making him one of the most prominent and easily recognizable actors of his time.

Cavill truly embodied the essence of Superman, and he continued to breathe life into the character through two more full-fledged movie appearances. Nevertheless, with the new leadership of James Gunn and Peter Safran at the helm of DC, a change was on the horizon. Cavill’s iconic red cape was retired, as Gunn sought a younger Superman for the upcoming DCU reboot.
