Last year while promoting Justice League, Henry Cavill said that he had one more movie left on his Superman contract. In a new interview yesterday at CinemaCon, Cavill couldn’t recall if he has one more movie or not, but Collider claims to have some interesting new details on Cavill’s future as Superman.
According to Collider, Cavill has been in negotiations with Warner Bros. about extending his Superman contract beyond the one movie he has left. The plan is to make Superman the “glue” that connects all of the DCEU movies together. Collider says the hope is that Superman will make “small, but memorable, appearances” in the movies, much like Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has done in the Marvel movies. Collider notes that while they heard this from “very reliable sources”, they haven’t been able to get 100% confirmation, so treat this as a rumor for now.
Cavill is already rumored to be showing up as Superman in Shazam, so perhaps there’s something to this new rumor. Who knows, maybe he could even make a surprise cameo in the Aquaman credits later this year too.
What do you make of this rumor? Would you like to see Cavill’s Superman be the “glue” that connects the DCEU together going forward? Let me know in the comments below.
