It is being claimed that Henry Cavill might be back as Superman for Shazam! 2 which will put him in an epic battle with Zachary Levi.
The rumor says that Henry as Superman will come under the control of Mister Mind, the only survivor of a mind-controlling race of worms from Venus, who was teased in the Shazam! Post credit scene and that Cavill will be a part of a small scene in Shazam 2.
The rumor claims that Dwayne Johnson wants to use Henry Cavill, and as has been previously been reported, The Rock wants a DC shared universe; Henry Cavill is also rumored for Black Adam 2.
As it has been pointed out many times that Henry Cavill’s manager is Dany Garcia, the former wife and business partner of Dwayne Johnson and producer on the Shazam and Black Adam flicks, so of course, it makes sense for them to want to bring back the Superman, Henry Cavill.
Actor Henry Cavill did recently say that he is going to fight for the role and not give up, and he has seen big-time success and popularity with the Netflix The Witcher series, which has certainly bolstered his chances of returning as Superman among Warner Bros.
Henry was originally supposed to cameo in Shazam but, reportedly, talks broke down between Garcia and WB over getting Henry a new contract with more money.
Regarding having Superman and Shazam fight in a sequel, that might be a stretch as things didn’t go too well with Superman as more or less a bad guy in Batman V Superman and Justice League, so now they are going to do more of the same?
Maybe, but the fans are tired of Superman’s dark knight approach which has proven not to work and that they want the hopeful and inspiring version they are all accustomed to.
