Let us find out.

The delayed return of Henry Cavill to the DC extended universe

Since the release of Justice League in 2017, if there is one thing the DC fandom were dying to watch, it was Henry Cavill’s return as Man of Steel. As a result of repeated demands by the fans, Warner Bros finally decided to bring back Superman with a scene in Black Adam. Previously, as per reports, Cavill was set to make a comeback in 2019 DC film Shazam! for a brief cameo scene.

However, Cavill’s manager responded, “If he appeared in a cameo as Superman, that would count as one of Cavill’s contracted appearances.” This did not sit well with Warner Bros, especially with former chairman Toby Emmerich, who had a cold response: “Henry Cavill is now persona non grata, he’s not gonna play ball with the studio? He will never be Superman again.”

However, Shazam! did have a cameo scene, but Cavill’s face was not visible. But now it seems like all is good between Cavill and the franchise as the Man of Steel made his comeback in Dwayne Johnson’s film Black Adam.
