Just days after the announcement of HBO Max releasing The Snyder Cut of 2017’s The Justice League, it appears that the hype has captured the attention of Man of Steel Star Henry Cavill in an attempt to dawn the red cape once again.
Deadline reports Cavill is said to reprise his role as Clark Kent, but not like you would assume. Cavill will be appearing in films for a supporting role or even smaller cameos. The future of Cavill's Superman has not yet been discussed, and it sounds like Warner Bros. and DC Comics are still figuring out where the character best fits in upcoming films.
Cavill and Zack Snyder appeared on Snyder's live stream to rewatch of Man Of Steel last week, the same stream where Snyder announced that his cut of Justice League is coming to HBO Max. Cavill debuted as Superman in Man of Steel and played the role again in Snyder's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Snyder intended for Cavill to return in a second Justice League movie, but those plans fell through when Joss Whedon replaced Snyder during Justice League's post-production.
How are you all feeling about a Clark Kent cameo rather than a Superman sequel? We’re not to sure about that one, but it’s good to see at least one of the main players coming back to join forces
