With it being Rosh Hashanah, we are going to take this rumor about Warner Bros. and DC with a huge grain of Kosher salt. According to Comic Book Movie, who is sourcing The Cultured Nerd, Man of Steel and The Witcher star Henry Cavill has agreed with the studio. to reprise his role as Superman in at least three projects and at least a few options for future cameos in other DC Extended Universe movies.
The Geek has made no secret that he believes Cavill is the best Superman to don the red cape since Christopher Reeve in the late 1970s and 80s. Cavill has also made it very clear that he wants to return as Superman. It’s expected that he and Shazam! star Zachary Levi would team up against Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam in either Black Adam 2 or Shazam! 3.
Artist BossLogic shared the image of Cavill’s Clark Kent shortly after this rumor surfaced with his agent, Dany Garcia, then sharing it on Instagram!
How Cavill’s return as the Man of Steel would affect the upcoming Superman and Lois (starring Tyler Hoechlin as MOS) on the CW remains to be seen. Of course, the WB at DC FanDome did say that these are all different universes in the multiverse.
So, Stay tuned. And pass that Kosher salt around.
