Henry Cavill is heavily rumored to be returning as Superman in the DC Extended Universe, and while nothing concrete has been released, fans have been buzzing about the idea. There were some very recent reports that the actor was supposed to make an appearance at Warner Bros. and making New Lines, Black Adam and Shazam! Wrath of the Gods panel during San Diego Comic-Con, but he never showed up. While that doesn’t mean Cavill won’t return as Superman, it could mean he may not have signed a contract yet. One fan is holding out hope for the Man of steel stars returns and even goes so far as to put him in the red trunks via some new fan art.
An Instagram artist who goes by @Clements.Ink has revealed a new piece of fan art that shows what Cavill could look like in his return as Superman. The art puts the actor in a white button-down shirt with his iconic Superman symbol showing. It also gives Cavill some comically accurate hair. You can check out the Superman fan art below!
Not only do fans want the actor to return as Superman, it seems one of his fellow DC Comics colleagues feels the same way. During San Diego Comic-Con Dwayne Johnson got the chance to speak with ComicBook.com while promoting Black Adamwhere he revealed that he thinks that Cavill is the Superman of our generation.
“I will say this. I will say that Henry is a partner and he is a phenomenal Superman,” says the actor. “He’s a phenomenal Superman and Henry Cavill is the Superman of our generation in relation to the other Supermans of the past. Every time I see him, we have some tequila and I say ‘This guy is Superman.’ My longtime business partner Dany Garcia has been a passionate advocate for Henry Cavill and his career for a very, very, very long time.”
The next DC Comics movie will be Black Adam. The film will star Dwayne Johnson and will also feature 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.
