When Henry Cavill discusses playing Superman again, it’s not random.
Granted, Henry Cavill hasn’t announced his return yet.
Still, he and The Rock have name-dropped Superman lately.
Cynics will claim it’s coincidental.
If Geekosity fed into the corporate line, we’d believe it, too.
But we don’t.
Celebrities, especially one as media savvy as The Rock, know how to tease.
Insiders reveal that The Rock and Henry Cavill are controlling the narrative.
The Rock wants Henry Cavill’s Superman back in the headlines.
On April 11, Geekosity owner Mikey Sutton leaked Henry Cavill’s possible cameo in Black Adam.
To The Rock, a fight between Black Adam and Superman needs to happen.
After all, Black Adam has to prove himself as the DCEU’s ultimate powerhouse.
Specifically, Henry Cavill’s Superman.
Granted, Black Adam won’t be released until July 29, 2022.
Henry Cavill Teases Return To Playing Superman
While it’s over two years from now, time moves quickly.
Hype is launched early.
In fact, the Black Adam footage at DC FanDome in October blew up.
As a result, that has to be sustained.
Actually, it needs to be increased.
Turn it up to 11.
Kick out the jams.
For Henry Cavill, it’s personal as well.
Cavill revealed he wants to play a more heroic and hopeful version of Superman.
Admittedly, this rattled some Zack Snyder fans.
Nevertheless, Henry Cavill loved Snyder’s grittier take on Superman.
But Snyder’s Man of Steel was about Kal-El becoming Superman.
Cavill wants Superman to move forward.
In other words, to show the superhero Kal-El became.
A source explained:
Henry Cavill needs his Christopher Reeve moment.
We all love Superman.
Without a doubt, he was the world’s first definitive superhero.
If it wasn’t for him, we might’ve not had the rest of the DC universe or even Marvel’s.
Moreover, he was the first superhero to get a blockbuster film.
Superman didn’t just start the superhero craze in the comics; rather, he did the same for the movies.
Unfortunately, Warner Bros. has not announced a sequel for Man of Steel.
Yet that doesn’t mean it’s dead.
No, it’s not.
Consequently, people loudly expressed their annoyance at Warner Bros.’ attempts to bury the Snyderverse.
During a recent interview, Henry Cavill unveiled his vision for Superman after The Snyder Cut:
I was very keen on really fleshing out Superman’s early stages of his journey first, we had Man of Steel, and then we went quite a bit darker with Batman v Superman, and if he were to succumb to the Anti-Life Equation, and become bad Superman, I really wanted to make sure we saw the hero Superman, and we saw the true symbol of hope, the beacon of light, before we went down the path of darkness and then redemption.
Finally, Henry Cavill acknowledged:
It’s still something that I am very keen to flesh out.
Until then, The Rock and Henry Cavill will tease the inevitable.
