I had actually read something where they wanted to recast someone new for the cameo since Cavill likely isnít returning. Kinda pointless for him to cameo and have that be his last appearance.

This publication says they are doing 3 weeks of reshoots next month in Toronto.

It's logistically feasible Cavill could do 1-2 days of work.

He can fulfill his contractual film commitments with a cameo? I call BS.

It counted when Marvel had actors pop in for cameos in other films.

Thatís because Marvel set up cameos to actually mean something. The cameos in their films actually led to something. Why do we care about Cavill showing up in this film if heís likely going to be gone afterwards? It doesnít make sense and seems pointless.

It doesn't matter if it has meaning or not. The question posed was "can he fulfill his contractual obligations with a cameo?" and the answer is very likely yes.

RDJ's appearance in Incredible Hulk was not a part of his film commitments in his contract. Neither was Chris Evans' appearance in Thor: The Dark World. For contracts like Samuel L. Jackson, etc, cameo's were part of the deal, because really that's all the majority of his appearances were. The main players never got a film deducted from their commitments because they agreed to do a cameo, at least not that I can recall.

I misunderstood your post. I was thinking you meant the cameos had meaning for the films, not that they counted towards an appearance.

If it's the Supes from Justice League--which it most probably is--bring it.

If it's the murderous grouch from MOS and BvS, forget about it.

Obviously, but if the actor playing Superman is changing why would you want to bring back the actor whoís on his way out in for a cameo? If anything replace him immediately and use the new person or just scrap the cameo until the new actor is cast. Itís dumb to continue on with someone on their way out as most people seeing it would probably expect them to interact further at some point in a future film.

Agreed. Just wasn't sure you were thinking that way. You seemed more concerned with gassin' Marvel cameos.

Re: Shazam! (2019, D: David F. Sandberg) S: Zachary Levi

I'm with Kal-el. If it's Justice League Supes, by all means, bring it. What's the harm? Fans get some fan service and we get to see at least one film where Superman isn't brooding and or trying to kill other members of the JL. Plus DC/WB gets to keep Superman "alive" and marketable until they do come up with something if Cavill is indeed gone.

I mean the biggest complaint of the DCEU is that they haven't been "fun." This cameo could be fun, so fucking roll with it.

If the rumor is true and being that this is Shazam and not the typical dark DCEU movies, I think a potential appearance by Cavill will be more tongue and cheek.

I donít see how that makes it any more fun personally. Itís more awkward than anything. Welcome to the DCEU, now letís finish this shit up so I can get the hell out and put this part of my career behind me!!

Exactly. I would assume it's the "fun" "JL" Supes.

Can't wait for Superman to swoop down after credits and snap Shazam's neck.
