Henry Cavill set to return as Superman for future DC films

Henry Cavill posted to social media to share that he is “back as Superman” following his cameo in the post-credits scene of “Black Adam,” which opened last weekend to $140 million worldwide. The news comes after years of rumors and speculation about Superman’s long-awaited return to the DC Universe.

Cavill said in a video posted to his Instagram feed:“I wanted to wait until the weekend was over before posting this because I wanted to give you all a chance to watch ‘Black Adam.’  But now that plenty of you have, I wanted to make it official: I am back as Superman.”  The 39-year-old actor added that what audiences saw in Black Adam is just a very small taste of things to come, but gave no further details. Cavill ended by thanking fans for their enthusiastic response to his return: “Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded.”

Cavill first originated his Superman nearly 10 years ago in 2013’s “Man of Steel” and has played the Son of Krypton just a handful of times since then: in 2016’s “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” 2017’s “Justice League,” 2021’s “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” and a brief post-credits cameo in “Black Adam.”
