Henry Cavill has been rumored to return as Superman in the DC Extended Universe, and while nothing concrete has been released, fans have been salivating at the thought. There have been very recent reports that the actor was supposed to make an appearance at Warner Bros. and New Line’s, black adam and Shazam! Fury of the gods panel at San Diego Comic-Con, but he never showed up. While that doesn’t mean Cavill won’t return as Superman, it could mean that he may not have signed a contract yet. A fan keeps hope for the Steel man the stars are returning, even going so far as to put it in the red trunks via new fan art.
An Instagram artist who goes by the handle @Clements.Ink has revealed new fan art that shows what Cavill could look like in his return as Superman. The art features the actor in a white button-up shirt with his iconic Superman symbol. It also gives Cavill precise, comedic hair. You can check out the Superman fan art below!
Not only do fans want the actor to return as Superman, but it seems one of his DC Comics colleagues feels the same way. During San Diego Comic-Con, Dwayne Johnson had the chance to speak with ComicBook.com while promoting black adamwhere he revealed he thinks Cavill is our generation’s Superman.
“I will say this. I will say Henry is a buddy and he is a phenomenal Superman,” the actor said. “He’s a phenomenal Superman and Henry Cavill is the Superman of our generation compared to other Supermans of the past. Every time I see him, we’re drinking tequila and I’m like, ‘That guy is Superman.’ My longtime business partner, Dany Garcia, has been a strong advocate for Henry Cavill and his career for a long, long, long time.”
The next DC Comics movie will be black adam. The film will star Dwayne Johnson and will also star Aldis Hodge (Underground, The Invisible Man) as Hawkman, Noah Centineo (To All the Boys I Love Before, Charlie’s Angels) as Atom Smasher, Quintessa Swindell (Trinkets, Euphoria) as Cyclone, Sarah Shahi (The L Word, Sex/Life) as Adrianna Tomaz, Pierce Brosnan (GoldenEye, Mamma Mia!) as Doctor Fate and Sarah Shahi as Adrianna Tomaz.
