RUMOUR: Henry Cavill reportedly signed on for three more appearances as Superman

September 20th, 2020 by Marc Comments

It’s not as if we haven’t heard before that Henry Cavill is still Superman in the DC Cinematic Universe (here) but the rumour is back again and it’s gathering more and more mometum.

Yes, it seems that word on the nerdsphere is that Cavill is back for at least three DC projects – as of yet unnamed.

Now, while this hasn’t come from Warners yet, it seems like this could be the real deal as it seems to fit the current narrative that Superman may be set to appear in Shazam: Fury of the Gods and we know that Dwayne Johnson wants Black Adam and Superman to go toe-to-toe on the big screen.

You may also recall that waaaaay back when the rumour was that Cavill had left the role, it was because he was unhappy being offered a low salary and cameo roles… it seems that, if this is true, something in that plan has become more attractive. Personally, I’d imagine it’s two cameos and then a Man of Steel or Justice League sequel.

Adding to the speculation, Cavill (and Johnson’s) agent Dany Garcia shared the Bosslogic art work below with the tagline: Hope Never Left.

As and when we hear more so will you.

What say you all? More Cavill Superman/Clark Kent? Let me know your thoughts, gang.

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….
