Henry Cavill Confirmed on 24 October Social media post That returns as Superman Following his cameo in a new Warner Bros.-DC movie “Black Adam.” The actor wrote to his fans, “I just wanted to make it official: I’m Superman again…Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded. Two days later, Cavill spoke publicly for the first time about his Superman return during a live taping of the “Happy Chat Confused” podcast on 92NY in New York City.
“The character means a lot to me. It has been five years today. I never gave up hope,” Cavill told the audience. “It’s amazing to talk about it again now. The character has a bright future. I’m really excited to tell a story with a very happy Superman.
Cavill said he got the call to film his “Black Adam” cameo while filming his Netflix fantasy series “The Witcher.” He had to get permission from the production team to take a break from filming, but his Superman return was so secretive that he wasn’t allowed to reveal why he was asking for a break.
“I went to Warner Bros.’ studio in the UK and returned to the outfit,” Cavill said. “It was a very powerful moment for me. I didn’t know how I would feel wearing the ‘Man of Steel’ suit again. I chose it especially because of the nostalgia of the suit. It was important for me to stand there and enjoy the moment. It was one of the most important moments of my career. Wearing it again Glad to have the opportunity.
Speaking about the half-decade he spent waiting for news about playing Superman again, Cavill said: “I told myself I’m just going to sit back and let it soak in the background. I never lost hope, and that’s what’s important to me.
When asked the status of his new Superman movie, if any of the writers and directors are around the project, Cavill replied, “I can’t tell you that.”
Where Cavill’s Superman will pop up on the big screen next remains a mystery. Before the release of “Black Adam,” Twain Johnson said he was adamant about making a movie where Black Adam and Superman clash. The “Black Adam” credits scene confirmed that the battle was on, though Cavill would get his own Superman movie first. Variety reported A Chuck Rowan-produced Superman sequel is currently soliciting pitches from writers.
“Black Adam” is now showing in theaters nationwide.
