With San Diego Comic-Con on the horizon this weekend, all the things Marvel and DC are being topic to the rumor-mill as being a headlining reveal, with the most recent buzz surrounding Henry Cavill‘s purported return to the world of DC cinema talking up Superman being the latest example that has fans frothing at the mouths.
Not only is Dwayne Johnson and his presentation of the forthcoming film Black Adam, as well as Shazam: Fury of the Gods, rumored to be making an appearance, but Cavill’s wonderful look on the conference can also be rumored to be going down with a dialogue about none-other-than the Man of Steel himself, in keeping with Deadline.
Fans of Cavill as mild-mannered Clark Kent, who moonlights because the boy scout in blue tights, had been understandably overjoyed on social media on the prospect of his return, even whether it is only a rumor for now.
Whatever the follow-up project may be to the commendable 2013 outing Man of Steel, one commentator mentioned he hopes “it’s worthwhile.”
Another leisure journalist may solely conjure up all-caps to precise his pleasure on the information.
Unlike different actors within the DC cinematic panorama who’ve both expressed being jaded from persevering with within the franchise, equivalent to Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne/Batman, or in any other case embroiled in controversy, equivalent to the various current authorized troubles of The Flash actor Ezra Miller, Cavill has seemingly taken a hiatus from the DC universe for no good cause. Despite Cavill himself repeatedly expressing curiosity in persevering with to painting the character, Superman has been relegated to faceless cameos in lots of DC properties, equivalent to in Shazam! and Peacemaker, main many to imagine his absence is the work of poor and/or flippant cast decision-making from higher-ups at Warner Bros.
Suffice it to say, many followers have been stoked on the thought of Cavill’s long-awaited return, particularly if it coincided with a reunion of ousted DC director Zack Snyder.
Not everybody was as type about Snyder’s interpretation of the character through the years, equivalent to one Twitter account admitting that whereas Cavill is a good match for the half, he’s arguably solely appeared in “bad story after bad story.”
Man of Steel stays one of many strongest Snyder-helmed outings within the DC part of his career, with a direct sequel all the time seeming like essentially the most logical continuation of that story. Sadly, audiences had been handled to the critically-maligned Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice as a substitute. Last year’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League fared significantly better with followers and critics alike in comparison with each BvS and the 2017 Joss Whedon-directed model of Justice League, but it surely was an ensemble piece. Fans have been persevering with to chase the dream of a Cavill-helmed solo Superman sophomore effort ever since.
Another fan was firmly subscribing to the philosophy of Zendaya’s MJ from Spider-Man: No Way Home: “If you expect disappointment, then you can never really get disappointed.”
“Don’t give people so much false hope. I want it to be true so bad but don’t act like it’s 100%,” one other fan wrote.
If it does occur, there’s little doubt it will likely be a celebratory day certainly.
We’ll should collectively maintain our Super-Breath to see if the rumor pans out to be true when SDCC unfolds all through the latter half of this week and into this weekend.
