Comic-Con is returning to San Diego for the first time since 2019, and fans are eagerly awaiting major film announcements and surprises. One of the biggest studios to have a presence at San Diego Comic-Con is Warner Bros. Pictures, which will appear in Hall H to promote upcoming blockbusters such as Black Adam, The Flash, and Shazam! Fury Of The Gods. According to new reports, however, a certain blue boycott might make an appearance at the event. Deadline recently broke down everything fans should expect from Comic-Con, and stated that there is “buzz” that Henry Cavill will make a surprise appearance at the WB panel to discuss Superman.
While this news should be taken with a grain of salt, it’s exciting to hear that Henry Cavill’s Superman might be making a return. The last time Cavill suited up as Superman was in 2017’s Justice League, although fans more recently saw the character in the much talked about Zack Snyder’s Justice League. Since the release of Justice League, Superman’s future in the DC Universe has been somewhat mysterious. Rumours circulated that Cavill had been dropped by Warner Bros., although the actor has stated on numerous occasions that he hopes to return for more adventures as the Man of Steel.
For the sake of speculation let’s imagine that Cavill does make an appearance at Comic-Con this weekend. Cavill’s interpretation of Superman is widely loved by DC Comics fans, with many angry that the character hasn’t been made a priority in recent years. Announcing that Cavill is still attached to the DC Universe as Superman, or that another standalone Superman project is on the way, would be a great way for Warner Bros. to win back DC Comics fans and steal some of the spotlight from Marvel Studios.
I can say with absolute certainty that bringing Henry Cavill back as Superman would bring nothing but enthusiasm for the DC Universe. If Cavill does make an appearance at Comic-Con this weekend, we can only hope that a new Superman project is on the way!
