Henry Cavill’s Superman encounters Kryptonite amid setbacks for potential DC return (EXCLUSIVE)

Henry Cavill delighted fans in October when he made a surprise appearance as Superman in “Black Adam,” then revealed shortly thereafter that he was all set to don the red cape full time for DC Studios and WBD. And for a while, his return seemed like a sure thing. But TheWrap can exclusively report that Cavill appears to have run into some Kryptonite on the way back to playing Superman.

According to several insiders familiar with the situation, although it was previously reported that a writer search is currently underway, the truth is that there is currently no writer or director attached to the project and there is currently no official deal for Cavill to return.

Plus, according to an insider, as it stands right now, there’s no forward momentum on the project while newly installed DC Studio heads James Gunn and Peter Safran have been busy fine-tuning their long-term plan for the DCU.

The move made sense after Cavill announced his exit from the role of star of the hit Netflix series “The Witcher” – a move that was widely interpreted as a way to free up his schedule. Multiple reports held that new Something Featuring the Last Sons of Krypton was in the works.

Actress Amy Adams made waves this week when she commented on the possibility of Henry Cavill returning as Superman. “Isn’t that exciting?” Adams told Variety Wednesday at the “Disenchanted” premiere.

Adams, who played Lois Lane in Man of Steeple in 2013, added: “I’m so happy [Cavill]. He’s a great Superman so I’m really excited for him.”

Adams made it sound like the news was official, but the truth is, there has been no confirmation that any elements are in place for a sequel to “Man of Steel.”

No one knows what the long-term plan is, except for Gunn and Safran who have been in their new positions for less than three weeks. However, according to the insider, Gunn and Safran’s long-term plan should be revealed in the next couple of months.

After “Black Adam,” Cavill promised a future appearance as the Last Son of Krypton while Johnson had publicly announced his own vision of Black Adam and Superman in the DC Universe.

“Black Adam” marked Cavill’s first time as the Man of Steel since the long-running production of “Justice League” in 2016 and 2017. It’s a boon for fans of Cavill’s reprise of the character after grumbling that Superman was going to be rebooted and the actor’s tenure had expired.

Cavill’s future as Superman has been the subject of speculation over the past few years, with the 2019 finale of the Superman movie “Shazam!” but with the character’s face hidden, leading some to hypothesize that this is a sign that the role could be recast.

Although no official plans for Superman Cavill’s future have been announced, the character’s journey in “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” — the director’s four-hour version of “Justice League” released on HBO Max in 2021 — has been warmly welcomed. .

Recently, reports have surfaced and spread like wildfire on fan sites that Cavill will appear as Superman in 2023’s The Flash.

Warners did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Cavill’s representative could not be reached for comment.
