If you weren’t paying attention to the news online, you were probably surprised that Henry Cavill made a cameo as Superman in Black Adam. Though his appearance didn’t tease anything big, Cavill does confirm that there are incoming plans for more of his Man of Steel.
Waiting for the weekend to be over, Cavill has posted the official announce of his Superman return on IG:

“The image you see on this post, and what you saw in Black Adam are just a very small taste of things to come,” says Cavill. He continues, “I want to thank you guys most of all. Thank you for your support, and thank you for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded.”
Cavill’s Superman status had been up in the air since Justice League 2017, but after some restructuring in WB (and surprisingly, some pushing from the Rock), he’s now set to come back and appear in future Superman projects. Fingers crossed he also appears in some other material, since the Rock seems to be so adamant to have a clash between Black Adam and Superman—that’s why he wanted Cavill back so bad.
If anything, a lot of fans are pretty happy that Cavill is returning. With so many debates about the quality of his Superman, I’m glad he’s going to have another stab at the character. I’m just hoping we get something not as bleak as Man of Steel, but certainly something more mature than Black Adam.
In the meantime, catch Cavill as Superman in Black Adam now in cinemas.
