Last week we learned that Henry Cavill was negotiating his return to the DCEU, thus increasing the rumors around a film Superman. If he finally whispered that the actor would be in talks to appear in the next Warner / DC blockbusters, like Black adam or The Flash, new information relayed by The Hollywood Reporter indicate that the hero of Krypton would in fact not be included in the scripts of the latter, just like in that of The Batman. If the absence of Henry Cavill does not appear surprising in the project of Matt Reeves, Superman should not be introduced via cameos in the solo films with Dwayne Johnson and Ezra Miller.
Although negotiations may still evolve, the confrontation between The Rock and Henry Cavill on the big screen therefore seems unlikely for the moment, just like the appearance of Superman through the various alternative realities of The Flash. If this information will disappoint fans of the DCEU, the fact remains that Shazam! 2 could be the ideal candidate to film the return of Henry Cavill in the costume of Superman, the latter having already made an appearance at the end of the previous part. Finally scheduled for November 2, 2022 in France, after Warner announced new release dates, the sequel to Shazam! will be the first DC film from this new vintage. Enough to offer a proper return to the Superman of Henry Cavill and capitalize on this famous post-credits scene, before a long-awaited solo feature film or a major role in future DC blockbusters!
