After years of anticipation, Henry Cavill has returned to the DC Universe as Clark Kent / Superman.
The fan-favorite actor reprised his role as the Man of Steel in the post-credits sequence of Black Adam, setting up an epic rivalry for the character in the future.
Cavill later confirmed his reappearance on social media on Monday, saying the Black Adam sequence was “only a taste” of what was to come.
A recent story from Variety, which focuses on James Gunn and Peter Safran spearheading the charge at the newly formed DC Studios, appears to hint at what the future may bring.
According to the report, as well as a subsequent tweet from writer Zack Sharf, DC Studios is now “soliciting pitches from writers” on a new movie starring Cavill’s Superman. This is an interesting wrinkle in the Superman projects that have been in the works over the years, including Ta-Nehesi Coates and J.J. Abrams’ reboot, which was reported to still be in the works earlier this month.
“The image you see on this post and what you saw in Black Adam are just a very small taste of things to come,” Cavill said in the post. “There’s a lot to be thankful for, and I’ll get to that in time, but I wanted to thank you guys most of all. Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded.”
