Henry Cavill Rumoured To Resurrect DCEU Superman At SDCC 2022

Dwayne Johnson Teases Henry Cavill’s Superman Returns In Black Adam – “Welcome Home.”

He’s promised that a shift in the hierarchy of power in the DC Universe is about to change, but does he also have the power to give DC movie fans the Last Son of Krypton aka Henry Cavill.

Since the San Diego Comic Con in July, Dwayne Johnson, star of the upcoming DC Comics film Black Adam, has continually and cryptically teased a face-off between the anti-hero and Superman, much to the joy and chagrin of fans.

At the recent premiere of Black Adam in Los Angeles this week, star Dwayne Johnson gave his most definitive comments on the rumoured return of Superman to the DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Now, the star took his time to deliver a lengthy, purposed-filled response when asked about Superman, but towards the end, even the action superstar couldn’t help himself, when he looked directly at the camera and said, “I will say this…. welcome home.”

Does that mean Superman star Henry Cavill will appear in Black Adam? Does Clark Kent wear glasses?

While the comics have continually pit the supernatural Teth-Adam aka Black Adam against The Man of Tomorrow, the same premise has caused confusion for fans as Henry Cavill’s Superman, who made his debut in 2013’s Man of Steel, was last seen on the big screen in 2017’s Justice League, and not expected to reprise the role within the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), especially with the recent change in leadership at Warner Discovery.

That was, until this month, when several online influencers who claimed to have attended early screenings of Black Adam, are saying that Henry Cavill finally makes his return as Superman in a post-credits scene with Black Adam.

Several reports also state that Cavill will don a brighter variant of his red and blue costume, and accompanying him in the scene where he confronts Black Adam will be the classic Superman theme song, from the classic 1977 Superman film, starring Christopher Reeve.

This is not the first time that John Williams’ iconic Superman theme has appeared in the DCEU, as a sample was used in Justice League, when a revived Superman appears to fight Steppenwolf.

In an earlier post on Instagram when Dwayne Johnson was revealing the Black Adam theme, he declared that “He’s the most powerful and unstoppable force on this planet,”, before looking at the camera and winking, before adding, “On this planet.”

While most fans are reading that Johnson is hinting that Superman will make an appearance, this post, coupled with the rumours, indicate that the star is revealing that fans will get what they want, when the most powerful being on this planet meets the most powerful being from another.

Fans of Superman would recall that the character was famous for winking at readers and audiences in comics and cartoons.

So is he or isn’t he? Black Adam premieres 20 October 2022.
