Last month, Henry Cavill confirmed his return to the role of Clark Kent, famously known as Superman. All the passionate superhero fans have waited for the actor for a long time. Indeed, it was thrilling news for people that their patience has finally been rewarded, while the British star has also promised a future encounter between the legendary Kryptonian and Almighty Adam.
You might have seen this timeless hero briefly at the end donning his iconic cape in Black Adam. All these exciting crossovers and standalone adaptation for Cavill’s Superman have certainly raised people’s hope. And now they want to see Robert Downey Jr. as the iconic Superman villain against the Man of Steel star in future DC projects.
DC fandom demands to see Robert Downey Jr. against Henry Cavill
Iron Man fans were heartbroken when the beloved Marvel hero sacrificed himself to save the universe. After the closure of his tenure in MCU, Robert Downey Jr. was recently seen sporting a completely new look. Last weekend, the 56-year-old star surprised everyone with a bald head on the red carpet of the 13th Governors Awards in Los Angeles.
After seeing him, fans frequently noticed his resemblance to the iconic antagonist Lex Luthor. Many people commented on Twitter that the actor can play the DC character.
However, this wish of fans might have been fulfilled if the Sherlock Holmes star was cast in Man of Steel. If you remember Joseph McGinty Nicho, who was about to become the director of the film, wanted to cast Robert as supervillain Lex Luthor. Unfortunately, the Charlie’s Angles director dropped out of the project and the idea never got the way until now.

But seriously. The internet would shit its pants if RDJ was the DCU’s new Lex Luthor pic.twitter.com/9x5RGupSc6

Wow he gone bald and beardless. If @JamesGunn would take RDJ as Lex Luthor it would be freaking awesome. But we all know deep down that he will return in some way in Avengers

He never came to mind before for the role, but now I think about it, he'd be pretty much perfect as Lex.
