It’s been 7 years since Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill breathed new life into the long dormant and left for dead Superman film franchise and though Superman V Batman and Justice League pretty much ruined the foundation set in 2013, we still very much like Cavill as the Man of Steel.
After years of rumors that Warner Bros. was ready to once again reboot the franchise with a new lead and show Cavill the door, Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros and DC have engaged in talks with the British actor to return but unfortunately it doesn’t look like we’ll be getting that long awaited sequel 2013’s Man of Steel (damnit!!)
Other projects where Cavill could make a cameo are Shazam 2, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam or Aquaman 2, which are the next productions to be prepped once COVID-19 safety restrictions lift.
With word that the legendary Zack Snyder cut of Justice League will finally premier on HBO Max next year for which the studio will be coughing up over $30 million for him to complete, this could just be DC locking down Cavill for reshoots.
Should the Snyder cut of Justice League prove to be a better version of the theatrical version (though the bar is hella low on that one) and fans interest in the OG Justice League once again pick up, DC needs to strike while the iron is hot and get Cavill back in the red and blue to not only save the day once again, but save the DCEU from their creators.
