Henry Cavill to return as Superman in DCEU?

https://deadline.com/2020/05/man-of-...os-1202945025/

No standalone movie, but this Deadline report says he's in talks to come back.


EXCLUSIVE: While there is not a Man of Steel sequel in the works, we’re hearing that Henry Cavill is in talks to reprise his role as Superman in the Warner Bros. DC Universe.

We hear Cavill could come back in a couple of different ways, not a standalone film, but there are plans to put him back in the big red cape again sources with knowledge tell us.

Warner Bros. is not developing a Man of Steel sequel, and Wonder Woman 1984, Suicide Squad are in the can, and Superman isn’t expected to make a cameo in Matt Reeves’ The Batman. Other projects where Cavill could make a cameo are Shazam 2, Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam or Aquaman 2, which are the next productions to be prepped once COVID-19 safety restrictions lift.



When reached, Warner Bros. provided no comment.

Cavill made a surprise appearance on Zach Snyder’s Vero Watch Party for Man of Steel last week. At the end of that session, Snyder announced that his director’s cut of Justice League is heading to HBO Max in 2021. Cavill played Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman and Justice League.

Cavill is repped by WME, the Garcia Companies, and Gang, Tyre, Ramer, Brown & Passman.

It doesn’t say he coming back. It says “is in talks to reprise his role”. That’s quite a difference.

I donít know why itís so hard to commit to a true sequel to Man of Steel. Despite mixed feelings on the DCEU I like Cavill as Superman. Interested if he comes back.

Except he now has a goatee, so WB will have to work around that.

He ain't coming back. He's living large as a Witcher now.

The Wrap speculates it may just be for additional work on the Snyder cut of Justice League.

They could actually just call the next film Superman, since it still has never been used! I think this is a win for all parties involved. Assuming the Snyder JL is well received, it could still pave the way for some success down the line.

I want another Superman movie. This is a step in the right direction.

He seems cool but kind of stiff to play Superman though a Superman stand alone movie is better than having some other superhero to share the screen with.

Tell him that. He's a huge fan of The Witcher stories and games, and he had been lobbying for the role for a long time before he got it.

I'm fine with no more Superman movies, the DECU has done no credit to the character.

And then there's this article. But at this point I'm sure no one really knows to what extent he'll be back. But let's nix the solo movies for now.

Re: Henry Cavill to return as Superman in DCEU?

I thought the deal was that he was getting too expensive for the role. Isn't there some clause where if you play the same role a number of times you get either a significant pay bump or are able to renegotiate?

I don't dispute any of what you are saying. I'm simply pointing out he can make some crazy money making movies, as opposed to doing TV shows.

That's not happening. WB was clear there will be no reshoots, with the original cast anyway.

He just needs to be directed by someone other than Suck "Slow-mo=drama" Snyder.

I had no idea he was that passionate about the Witcher series and the role. Then good riddance to Superman if thats the case. Iíll have to check out this ďWitcherĒ show.

After watching Apokolips War, nothing in the DCEU will ever top that.
