If the long-awaited official announcement of the Justice League Snyder Lower wasn’t sufficient, followers of the DCEU should have thought Christmas had come early twice over when it was confirmed a couple of days later that Henry Cavill’s Superman would even be making a return to the interconnected superhero franchise, seemingly drawing a line below the fixed hypothesis surrounding his future.
The choice to take some of the well-known and recognizable characters in all of in style tradition, use him because the jumping-off level for a complete cinematic universe in his solo reboot after which nearly immediately relegate him to a supporting position has all the time seemed like one of many DCEU’s strangest artistic selections, and when Superman’s final look within the franchise didn’t contain Cavill in any respect, it seemed as if the writing was on the wall for the actor’s time below the costume.
With The Witcher star having lastly put the rumors to mattress and dedicated his future to the DCEU, many followers have been hoping that it will ultimately result in a Man of Metal sequel, one thing that has by no means been on the high of Warner Bros.’ record of priorities.
