In 2019 it was reported that Henry was out of the picture for future projects
Henry Cavill gained global recognition for his portrayal of Clark Kent, also known as Superman, in the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) films. He first appeared as the iconic superhero in the 2013 film Man of Steel, and later reprised the role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017).
In 2019, there were reports suggesting that Henry Cavill would no longer be portraying Superman in future DC Extended Universe projects, as the studio was exploring different directions for the franchise. However, recent news indicates that Cavill is making a comeback as the beloved superhero.
On Tuesday, Hollywood insider AJ shared an intriguing development on Twitter. According to AJ, trusted sources informed him that Henry Cavill was making a comeback. His tweet stated, “I’ll just say it. Multiple scoopers 100 percent believe Henry is back. The DM I received said ‘Cavills back’. This friend, who I trust very well, has always been skeptical about Cavill and Affleck returning. However, they are now starting to believe in the possibility of Cavill’s return.”
Continuing the tweet thread, AJ expressed, “Previously, it was considered impossible. But now, things are shifting. Something must be happening.” However, it is important to note that as of now, neither DC nor Henry Cavill has made any official statements regarding this matter.
It is indeed intriguing that this news of Henry Cavill’s return to the DCEU comes shortly after a Twitter Spaces conversation involving journalists Erik Davis from Fandango and Umberto Gonzalez from The Wrap. During their discussion, Erik mentioned that he had heard a story suggesting that the studio had approached Henry Cavill to reprise his role as Superman, but he expressed a reluctance to return. However, it is important to note that these remarks are part of a conversation and have not been officially confirmed by either Henry Cavill or the studio.
Now fans eagerly await confirmation to see if the news of Henry Cavill’s return as Superman is indeed true or if there will be a longer wait before they see him don the iconic cape again. In the Arrowverse, Tyler Hoechlin has taken on the role of Superman, portraying the super-powered alien in various shows within that universe, such as “Supergirl” and “Superman & Lois.”
