Though this post may not necessarily be connected with any Disney franchise, it is certainly worth mentioning. After leaks of the recent post-credit scene of Warner Bros’ Black Adam went viral online, I guess the cat’s out of the bag already. I will not say that much with regards to the heavily spoiled Black Adam post-credit scene but will let the Man of Steel himself do the talking. Because as of today, Superman star Henry Cavill has finally confirmed that the legendary Kryptonian will be back in the big screen.
The unofficial reveal came by the way of Cavill’s Instagram post that confirms his return in the DCEU. After the exasperating leak, fans speculated that Henry Cavill’s appearance might only be a sort of one-shot cameo. However, The Witcher star’s Instagramable post has now put all of these speculations at rest. Watch this.

And yes, we heard you loud and clear Henry. With an image that highlights the Man of Steel as we saw him in Black Adam, Cavill confirms that “the image you see in this post and what you saw at the end of Black Adam are just a very small taste of what’s to come”. Understandably, he kept mum about this reveal until such time that the latest DCEU anti-hero film has made its rounds in cinemas. There is no definite date yet on when the next Superman film will come out, but fans will agree that its already a bit overdue considering that it was way back in 2017 that we last saw the Kryptonian in action in Justice League.
Although it may have come as a stunner to some to see him back in the role of Superman, it’s not entirely surprising. Rumors about his return have been spreading lately despite the obvious delays and apparent difficulty of WB’s management to keep it as a secret. This is partly due to the fact that Cavill has now become a household name that is synonymous with the Man of Steel himself, and that replacing him at this point is close to impossible without receiving some serious backlash from fans. He has reprised the role in Batman v. Superman and Justice League, he is well-suited to the character, and has become the definitive Superman for a new generation. Love them or hate them, these modern iterations of Superman has now solidified Cavill’s role in the DCEU franchise, and is now like the steering wheel of the entire DC cinematic universe.
If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to catch Black Adam in your local cinema starring Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Aldis Hodge, and Pierce Brosnan.
