Henry Cavill is back as Superman in the DC Universe, and his contract with Warner Bros Discovery has been revealed, and it’s quite an interesting one. According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision newsletter, Cavill has actually only signed a “one-off deal” with Warners. However, I have to say that this doesn’t really add up, and I’ll explain why.
So, according to The Hollywood Reporter’s sources, Cavill’s contract with Warners regarding Superman only includes his brief cameo in Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam. That said, Cavill took to Instagram after the release of the Dwayne Johnson-lead DC Comics movie, and he revealed the following news:
Hey everyone. I wanted to wait until the weekend was over before posting this because I wanted to give you all a chance to watch Black Adam. But now that plenty of you have, I wanted to make it official that I am back as Superman, and the image you see in this post and what you saw in Black Adam are just a very small taste of things to come. So, there’s a lot to be thankful for, and I’ll get to that in time. But, I wanted to thank you guys most of all. Thank you for your support, and thank you for you patience.
Is Henry Cavill only going to be back as Superman in Black Adam?
So, according to The Hollywood Reporter, the actor has signed a “one-off deal” to cameo in Black Adam. However, according to their sources, Warner Bros Discovery is “definitely interested in more” from Cavill, including a second solo outing. A while back, it was revealed that Cavill could be starring in his standalone Superman film. This has been referred to as Man Of Steel 2. However, it’s been reported that the movie will be called Superman.
We’re just going to have to wait and see what ends up happening regarding Cavill’s Superman. We’re confident that we will get to see more of his version of the Man Of Steel.
