Five years since Henry Cavill’s last appearance as Superman in justice league, the hero’s future in the DC Universe was more of a giant question mark than a symbol of hope. But fortunately that changed in the meantime Black Adamend of the credit scenewhen Cavill returned to the big screen to the classic Superman theme fanfare. Seems we should thank Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for more Man of Steel, who just spoke in more detail about his struggle to bring the character back.
The Rock thanked DC fans Black Adam‘s continued success as it has now rose to No. 1 on release home while Black Panther: Wakanda Forever dominates in the theaters, he also spoke about why bringing Henry Cavill’s Superman back into the herd was so important to him. In his words:
In a video posted by Dwayne Johnson Twitter While driving to work, he shared some behind-the-scenes information about Henry Cavill’s official return DC movies. He continued:
There you have it. The Rock knew Henry Cavill was the ultimate Superman, and he did everything in his power to get the booked and busy actor back in business. Cavill’s Kal-El appears after the Black Adam roll credits. He emerges from a wall of smoke where he tells The Rock’s DC character that they “should talk”. Following the reveal in theaters, Cavill took to social media to say the moment was just a “little foretaste of what is to come.”
As of now, no concrete plans have been announced regarding Superman’s major return. Rumor has it that producer Chuck Roven is currently trying to get applications from writers for a Superman sequel. Recently, Warner Bros. has undergone many behind-the-scenes reorganizations, with Discovery Communications inking a $43 billion deal with its parent company AT&T to buy it.
Following Black AdamPublication, Guardians of the Galaxy and The Suicide Squad filmmakers James Gunn has been appointed as the new Co-Chairman and Co-CEO of the redesigned DC Studios alongside producer Peter Safran. With the two filmmakers taking the helm now, perhaps the DCEU will finally find direction that has been scattered for years.
Along with Henry Cavill’s return to the DC Universe, the actor will return The Witcher and star in spy movie, argyle next year, while The Rock’s next film is a vacation film starring Chris Evans, also due out in 2023.
