Shazam Director Addresses That Henry Cavill Playing Superman In Shazam 2 Rumour

The director of Shazam, David F. Sandberg has opened up on those rumours suggesting that Henry Cavill is playing Superman in Shazam 2. He opened up via Twitter, and I’m going to be honest here, it’s not really a denial that Cavill is going to be playing Superman in Shazam: Fury Of The Gods.

It had been rumoured that Henry Cavill was going to be reprising his role of Superman in the upcoming Shazam sequel, which is called Shazam: Fury Of The Gods, which got a lot of people really excited. We still don’t really know what’s happening with Cavill’s Superman in the DCEU, and this was the first sort of confirmation that he will be coming back as the Man of Steel in the DC Comics movies.

Well, it sounds like the rumours that Cavill is returning in Shazam 2 were not actually true, at least, it seems as though Sandberg is hinting that Cavill’s cameo might not happen. Check out what he had to say about the rumours in his tweet below.

Here’s what David F. Sandberg said via Twitter about Superman turning up in Shazam 2:

Not going to comment on casting rumors for several reasons. One being you can’t be sure about anything until it’s happened. Halfway through shooting Shazam the plan was still for Cavill to be in it. Scoopers could have scooped that and been right at the time but wrong in the end.

Though I can confirm with ~90% certainty that Shazam will appear in Shazam 2. So if you’re a fan of that character you might enjoy Shazam 2.
