Henry Cavill makes official his return as Superman

It's official: the actor who has played the Man of Steel in the DCEU these past few years announces his return after years of doubts about his future.

Henry Cavill, the famous actor who has played the DCEU's Superman in recent years in films like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman or Justice League, has announced his return as Superman officially through his social media.

This has been published by The Witcher actor himself, sharing a short video clip in which he announces his new stage as the famous DC superhero, in addition to posting an official image characterized as the Last Son of Krypton, as he appears in the post-credits scene of Black Adam. "I wanted to make it official that I am back as Superman," said the actor.

This was officially announced by the actor through the video clip below. "I wanted to wait until the weekend was over before posting this because I wanted to give you the chance to watch Black Adam. But now that plenty of you have I wanted to make it official that I am back as Superman," said Cavill. And although he offers no clues about his next steps in the DCEU, the actor assures that his presence in Black Adam is just a small sample of what is to come, as well as thanking the patience and support of the fans during these last years.

We haven't seen Henry Cavill as Superman since 2017's Justice League -in addition to the most recent Snyder Cut-, a hiatus of more than five years in which the actor has been the subject of controversy for not clarifying his future and some cameos of the character in which his face did not appear, all coinciding with the change of directive of Warner Bros. and those responsible for the DCEU.

In this sense, information has recently been made public in which it is assured that Warner Bros. declared Cavill "persona non grata" after not doing the favor of appearing in Shazam! for the famous cameo of Superman, which was finally made faceless. At the time, Warner exec Toby Emmerich said, "Henry Cavill is now persona non grata, he's not gonna play ball with the studio? He will never be Superman again." He was wrong.
