The announcement of Cavill’s return follows his appearance in Black Adam in an uncredited cameo appearance in which he appears as the Man of Steel in a post-credits scene.
It’s unclear how Superman will fit into DC’s new 10-year roadmap, but with James Gunn becoming DC’s new head, it seems we can expect a more cohesive vision for the DC universe moving forward.
It remains to be seen if Adams, Diane Lane (Superman’s mother) or any of the other performers who have participated in the last DC Superman movies will return to the fray.
