After fans pleaded, cried, and then outright DEMANDED that actor Henry Cavill, reprise the role of Superman, Warner Bros and The Witcher actor have finally come to an agreement!
Rumours he was leaving the role sprouted at one point, but now sources say the 37-year-old is reprising the DC superhero after signing a new deal. According to TCN, insiders say the new contract includes three movies and options for cameos in other DCEU films.
Allegedly, it was following the successful Justice League Snyder Cut movement that saw interest in Cavill’s Superman grow once again.
And reportedly Cavill himself made a pitch, one that was “widely praised”.
Right now it’s not clear what the three movies and possible cameos could be. He could feature prominently in the Dwayne Johnson Black Adam film or even in a Man of Steel sequel that is looooooong overdue.
His return as Superman follows news Ben Affleck is reprising his Dark Knight for The Flash movie.
The star’s incarnation of Batman will feature in the 2022 multiverse-crossing movie alongside Michael Keaton’s version.
Director Andy Muschietti feels Affleck’s Batman is the emotional spring-board needed before Flash meets Tim Burton’s Caped Crusader.
What do you think about Cavill taking flight again as Superman? Let us know in the comments.
