Is Henry Cavill Returning as Superman in Black Adam?
So the big buzz surrounding Black Adam has to do with the potential return of Henry Cavill in the role of Superman. Fans haven't seen Cavill play the Man of Steel since the long-awaited release of Zack Snyder's Justice League. There has been a big demand to see Cavill back as Superman, and it's looking like Black Adam is where fans will get to see the two heroes meet for the very first time.
"I think the question is, should it be the showdown? I don't know if that's the way to go," Johnson told ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis about a potential Black Adam/Superman crossover movie. "And when fans watch Black Adam and they see the end, and they really pay attention, as I know they will... as they pay attention to the words that were said, they pay attention to the nuance of the looks. We'll let that lead us."
"We can't go right there right away." he continued. "Now we've gotten to a great place where we've delivered for the audience. And when I say 'we're listening to the audience,' they know we mean it. And when we say, 'we're building up the DC Universe,' we mean it. This is what we mean. And when we say, 'welcome home,' you know who I'm talking about."
