Will Henry Cavill Announce a New Superman Film at San Diego Comic-Con?

Henry Cavill

The rumor mill is running hot with speculation that Henry Cavill might make a surprise appearance in Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend to announce a new Superman movie.

Deadline.com dropped the hint in an article reporting on Warner Bros. presentations at San Diego Comic-Con this weekend, with “Black Adam” and “Shazam: Fury of the Gods” the two films the studio will be showcasing.

Last we heard, Ta-Nehisi Coates was writing a script for a J.J. Abrams produced Superman movie that was supposed to be all about a black Kal-El/Clark Kent, while Darnell Metayer & Josh Peters were writing a script for Michael B. Jordan’s “Val Zod” project for HBO Max. Whether both of these Superman-related projects are now on the scrap heap in favor of a return by Henry Cavill remains to be seen.

The Superman Homepage does have a reporter attending San Diego Comic-Con, so stay tuned for any updates on this front.

If it does happen then I got to ask this, actually I’ll ask anyway, where’s the love for Routh’s Superman? Tyler has his Superman series which I’m a huge fan of, and now heavy rumors of Cavill’s return to the role of Superman. But what about Routh’s Superman? How are his fans like me supposed to feel about not hearing a thing about his Superman when the other two actors have either a show running or will be getting a movie going soon? I feel like I’m being ignored for supporting the version of Superman that I want to see… Read more »

actually I think I’d be suprised if they do announce a new Superman movie. on the other hand, announcing he’ll make appearances meaning cameos without saying they’re just cameos might be the new way of keeping the older fans interested in the upcoming movies

It’ll probably just be an announcement about Cavill making a cameo in “Black Adam.” However, as a big fan of Cavill’s Superman I truly hope he makes an announcement for a new Superman film. Or what if Cavill announced that WB’s video game branch will make a full-fledged Superman video game? That would be epic as well. I’m not going to get my hopes up for anything since we are dealing with Warner Brothers. So let’s see what happens.

If true this is super great news. I like Henry Cavill as Superman always have. Not the fault of Henry but his Clark Kent for me has been under developed in The DCEU Films so far but with a better script and filmmakers he could become a great Superman / Clark Kent. He sadly was just hurt by odd creative decisions by Warner Bros. and bad writing with his Superman. Would not let him be the character and we have not seen enough of him as Clark Kent. We need to see more of him as Clark and more scenes… Read more »

I’ve learned by now to not get my hopes up, BUT if they happened to announce 2 additional Cavill movies with Christopher McQuarrie writing/directing… I would have no choice but to rejoice in the streets.
