Henry Cavill has confirmed in a social media post today that he is returning as Superman. This following his cameo at the end of the new Warner Bros-DC “Black Adam.”
Cavil posted, “I wanted to make it official: I am back as Superman…Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded.”
“A very small taste of what’s to come, my friends. The dawn of hope renewed. Thank you for your patience, it will be rewarded,” the actor posted on Instagram.
Cavill first played the role of Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel. This was followed by the character’s return in two follow-up films (2016), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017’s Justice League (2017). However, there is some indication that his return may not follow these versions of the character. In “Black Adam” he walked out to the classic Superman theme and not the Hans Zimmer theme created for “Man of Steel.”
Cavill also plays Geralt in Netflix’s fantasy series The Witcher, and as Sherlock Holmes opposite Millie Bobby Brown in the Enola Holmes films.
