Fans were excited for Henry Cavill to come back to the DCEU because his character hasn’t been used much in the last few years. Cavill played Superman for the first time in Man of Steel in 2013. He then played the role again in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
In a scene after the credits of Black Adam, Cavill played his beloved role again for the first time in five years (if you don’t count his appearance in Zack Snyder’s Justice League). After the important cameo, the actor will play the role again for a long time as DC’s extended universe tries to get back on track after a few dull years.
Also, a Man of Steel sequel is said to be in the works. This would give the character a much-needed solo movie. Cavill officially said he was coming back on Monday after Black Adam made $67 million in its first weekend in the U.S. His Instagram post has everything fans want to hear, and the actor seems excited to get back into the superhero genre.
Cavill tells his fans, “Hey, I waited until the weekend was over to post this because I wanted to give you all a chance to watch Black Adam.” “But now that many of you have, I wanted to make it official that I am back as Superman. And the picture on this post and what you saw in Black Adam are just a small taste of what’s to come.
So there’s a lot to be thankful for, and I’ll get to that later.” He continues, “But I wanted to thank you guys most of all for your support and patience. I promise that it will pay off.” The whole video by Cavill can be seen below.
Black Adam’s After-credits Scene Was Not A Secret
Sadly, many fans learned about Superman’s appearance in Black Adam before viewing the film. Johnson, who portrays the film’s title character, teased Cavill’s appearance for weeks prior to the film’s release.
Then, the details of the post-credit scene were leaked in early October, virtually confirming Cavill’s long-awaited return.
Obviously, all of this should result in Black Adam and Superman’s inevitable confrontation. Audiences cannot wait for the return of Superman, especially when he is paired with Johnson’s anti-hero for an entire feature-length film.
For the time being, however, audiences can view their brief appearance in Black Adam while the actors and Warner Bros. decide how to proceed with the DCEU. Shazam! is the next film in the shared universe. The release date for Fury of the Gods is set for March 17, 2023.
