Henry Cavill set for SDCC with Superman news?

July 21st, 2022 by Marc Comments

Man, it seems like we’ve been writing about Henry Cavill’s return as Superman for years now. Wait, it has been years! Anyway, we have more news and, if true, this could be a big weekend for fans of the star in the iconic role.

We all know that San Diego Comic-Con [SDCC] is this weekend and Warners/DC are expected to put in a big show for their two big movies coming later this year, Black Adam hitting on October 21st and followed closely after by Shazam! Fury of the Gods on December 21st and it also seems that there might be more heroes in attendance that Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam and Zachary Levi’s Shazam! as Deadline is reporting that Cavill may be set to appear too.

According to their SDCC preview, they say: “Dwayne Johnson and the Warner Bros theatrical session will serve as Marvel’s opening act earlier in the day, with Black Adam and Shazam: Fury of the Gods getting their much-deserved closeups on the Hall H stage. There’s also buzz that Henry Cavill will put in a surprise appearance to talk up more Superman.”

We reported a few weeks back that reports of Cavill appearing as superman in Black Adam seemed to be hinted at by Johnson himself (here) and now we’re wondering if it might happen and, hopefully, see a whole new era of Superman in the DCEU moving forward.

We’ll obviously know more in the next few days, but if it turns out to be true, then DC likely owns this event for us here at FTN.

Thoughts on this one, guys?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
