After years of rumours, it is now clear: Henry Cavill (39) will slip into his Superman costume again. The British actor has now confirmed his comeback on Instagram. "I want to make it official that I'm returning as Superman," he proclaims in a short video.
With the announcement he wanted to wait until last weekend after the new DC film "Black Adam" with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson (50) as the title hero started on October 20th.
Because: At the end of the strip, Cavill has a short cameo appearance as Superman, who declares war on Black Adam. He still wanted to "give his fans the chance" to see the adventure for themselves. "Black Adam" is "a little taste of what's to come," Cavill said. And Dwayne Johnson also hinted in an interview that he would like a film in which his Black Adam competes against Superman.
It's now almost ten years since Cavill made a solo appearance as Superman in 'Man of Steel' (2013). News circulated recently that DC and the Warner Bros. film studio are said to be working on a sequel to the 2013 Superman flick.
Charles Roven (73) could act as a producer for the project. He produced the original almost ten years ago and was responsible for, among other things, "Justice League" - Superman's appearances in the team of DC heroes. We are currently looking for a screenwriter. Christopher McQuarrie (53) should also be on the wish list. The director and writer collaborated with Henry Cavill on 'Mission Impossible: Fallout' (2018).
