A leaker says that Henry Cavill is back as Superman and will play the same role in Black Adam. This could mean that the rumors are true.
Cavill played Superman for the first time in Man of Steel, Zack Snyder’s controversial take on the classic hero, which came out in 2013. He came back in Batman v. Superman, and in Joss Whedon’s Justice League, he had a nightmare-like blurred face.
Snyder fixed what was wrong with the theatre version of Justice League by putting Henry Cavill in the black suit and giving him the second chance he deserved.
But since Batgirl was canceled, the DCEU has been in a state of flux. Fans have been wondering if Cavill will ever wear the red cape again. It looks like he may be back in Black Adam.

The Twitter user @MyTimeToShineH, who has also leaked information about other superhero movies, including a supposed look at M.O.D.O.K. in Ant-Man 3, says that Henry Cavill will be back as Superman in Black Adam.
They wrote, “Yes, Henry Cavill is back. He’s wearing the classic suit with the Williams score and saying, “We need to talk about Black Adam.”
Cavill’s appearance in Black Adam has been talked about a lot over the past few months, and now @DanielRPK and other insiders back it up.

It looks like the suit will be similar to the one Cavill wore in Man of Steel, but it will be made brighter to look like Christopher Reeves’ suit. The use of John Williams’ music comes after DC League of Super Pets, which used the same theme for Superman.
Some Snyder fans are annoyed by the second creative choice, which makes sense. But, as many people have pointed out, Williams’ theme is better known.
“It’s about how everyone in the world knows that theme and thinks of Superman as soon as they hear it. Zimmer’s score just doesn’t have the same tech or riff that makes you think of Superman right away,” @TheComixKid wrote.
On October 21, Black Adam will come out.

Even though critics don’t like the movies he’s in, Henry Cavill is the comic book Superman, and Cavill has made it clear that he likes the character. Even though he did well in Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, Superman hasn’t had another solo adventure since Man of Steel.
Given how well Snyder’s first film set up Superman’s part of the DCEU, it would be worth going back to it in a Man of Steel 2, whether it takes place between the first film and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice or continues Superman’s story after Justice League, using Snyder’s plans for the character in part or in whole.
No one has said for sure that Henry Cavill will play Superman again in Black Adam, but DC’s new direction and what Dwayne Johnson has said make it seem likely. Even though it’s unlikely that Cavill’s Superman will face off against Johnson’s Teth-Adam in Black Adam, Cavill could make a cameo.
Not only will Superman return to the forefront of the DCEU, but the much-anticipated fight between Cavill’s Superman and Johnson’s Black Adam will happen, though it will happen after Black Adam’s own movie.
