Henry Cavill hasn’t put on the Superman suit in about five years now. He first appeared as the Last Son of Krypton in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel (2013) followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016). Then he was seen as the caped crusader in 2017’s Justice League and then finally in 2021’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Fans believed that Henry Cavill’s time as Superman might come to an end in the near future, even though the actor has expressed interest in reprising his role if possible.

Henry Cavill may be a part of the Black Adam cast
While the real reason why the actor would make a surprise appearance at the 2022 San Diego Comic-Con is still unknown, fans speculate that he could appear as part of Black Adam‘s cast, to confirm his return as DCEU’s Superman. Last month, a rumor claimed that Superman will appear in Black Adam’s post-credit scene. Even Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in the past few weeks has been teasing the appearance of Superman in the upcoming movie.
Apart from this, the more obvious reason could be that Warner Bros. decided to sign a new deal with Henry Cavill, which may include more appearances as Superman and even a solo project in the near future.
Last month, Zack Snyder hinted at the actor’s return as Superman
Last month, director Zack Snyder hinted at Henry Cavill’s return as Superman in a post on Vero. He posted a picture of himself with Henry Cavill and referred to the actor as his “future” Superman in the caption. Even though it certainly seems like Zack Snyder’s DC chapter has come to an end, this post indicated that he might work with the actor once again for another Superman movie.
Zack Snyder’s Justice League was released on HBO Max in 2021, but now fans can finally buy their own digital version of the four-hour movie.
