This time it is official: Henry Cavill has announced that he will return to take on the role of Superman in the DC Extended Universe, and did so with a video message posted a few hours ago, which ended Black Adam’s opening weekend.
As you will remember, The Rock had suggested the return of Henry Cavill’s Superman in Black Adam, and now it is no longer a surprise: the character appears in the post-credit sequence of the film and will be the protagonist of new projects at Warner Bros.
“Hi everyone. I wanted to wait for the weekend to end before publishing this post, because I wanted to give you the chance to watch Black Adam,” Cavill said in his video message, posted on Instagram.
“But now that many of you have done it, I wanted to make it official: I’m back as Superman. The image accompanying this post and the Black Adam scene are but a small glimpse of what’s to come. “
“I have a lot to be thankful for and it will come to us over time, but I especially wanted to thank you fans for your support and patience – I promise they will be rewarded.”
It seems that Cavill’s departure from the DCEU was due to some disagreements with the leaders of Warner Bros., who had even banned him from their own productions. Their removal and The Rock’s insistence, however, allowed the English actor to be able to return.
