Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson continued to promote a match with Superman long before Henry Cavill was brought back into contention. But after being booed at Comic-Con, he made it his personal mission to bring Cavill back. And around September, Cavill shot some scenes for black adam and even the flash. His cameo in black adam hinted that the beef between Henry Cavill and WB Discovery senior management was now a thing of the past. But apparently, despite all the promises of a bright future involving Superman from Cavill himself, nothing is set in stone for him.
No deal yet for Henry Cavill
Since the cameo, Grace Randolph, Industry Insider and YouTube content creator, says Henry Cavill hasn’t reached a deal for the future yet. And his claims have been backed up by a major source like The Wrap Now. The outlet said that despite Henry Cavill’s video of something happening with Superman and previous reports suggesting a Man of Steel 2 is in development, no official green light has been given for the project. .

According to the outlet, new DCU bosses James Gunn and Peter Safran have been busy “refine their long-term plan for the DCU.” Gunn confirmed it himself, but many assumed that a Superman movie should be on his list, especially after Henry Cavill filmed those two cameos. But surprisingly, no such deal has happened so far.
Why Man of Steel 2 still isn’t bail
The Rock used Henry Cavill’s cameo to create buzz black adam highligths. Many fans were thrilled with his return, and Superman would certainly have taken on Black Adam much quicker if DJ was in charge. But with the fact that black adam may not break even, and the likes of DJ and Gunn still ignore each other, it’s somehow implied that WB Discovery is just testing the waters for Henry Cavill’s Superman with its cameo. Because it brought no monetary benefit, his future in the DCU may be in doubt as the WB’s upper management still don’t see a future with him in mind.

JJ Abrams is supposed to produce his own Superman movie. During this time, the “no developments on Man of Steel 2” The report once again implies that WB Discovery could go back to its way of over-promising and under-delivering. We’ve had so many projects put into development and then silently canceled over the next two years and that’s just plain wrong!
Why Henry Cavill should get another run
Say what you will about the SnyderVerse, it had a definite multi-year plan. And James Gunn will surely have his own decade-long storytelling plan, as will Snyder, but it may not yet include Henry Cavill’s Superman. No one has denied his future after Black Adam’s cameo, but no one is rushing either.

In Cavill’s defense, his cameo would never have been the only thing to ensure profits for black adam. People go to the cinema to watch an entire movie, not just a post-credits scene that was leaked long before the movie was released. So if no profit from black adam are what holds man of steel 2 back, then it shouldn’t. Cavill definitely needs another Superman movie to be judged properly. Plus, recasting it after bringing it back would only bring more heat to WB Discovery.
So, Mr. Gunn… Make it happen already!! It should have been sped up for a 2025 release by now.
