On Feb. 5, 2021 a news website by the name of “That Hashtag Show” revealed that Henry Cavill would be returning to play Superman for “Shazam! Fury of the Gods.”

This has been under speculation since the character’s cameo in the end of the first film. Later that day Variety came out with an article saying that two of their sources with direct knowledge of the actors production schedule stated “It’s easy to understand why rumors that Cavill would be in the ‘Shazam’ sequel would be quick to take flight.”

“Halfway through shooting ‘Shazam,’ the plan was still for Cavill to be in it,” Sandberg tweeted on Friday. It’s also why Sandberg says he isn’t commenting on the casting rumors about Cavill. “You can’t be sure about anything until it’s happened.”

In May 2020, Variety also confirmed that the actor would cameo as the Man of Steel in the upcoming DC Films project, and it didn’t include “Zack Snyder’s Justice League” from director Zack Snyder. Cavill even said that he had not “given up” the role. “The cape is still in the closet,” he said. “There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet.”

The director of the movie David F. Sandberg took to Twitter and addressed the rumours.

 “Not going to comment on casting rumors for several reasons,” Sandberg said. “One being you can’t be sure about anything until it’s happened. Halfway through shooting Shazam the plan was still for Cavill to be in it. Scoopers could have scooped that and been right at the time but wrong in the end.”

According to actress Megan Good, who plays the adult and superpowered version of Darla in “Shazam! Fury of the Gods,” stated the movie is set to start filming in May, a full two years before its current release date set in June 2023. 

After all the rumors and speculations one can only hope for them to be true. Both the fans and Henry Cavill have been eagerly wanting to see the return of the iconic superhero on the Big Screen. Until any official confirmation is made by Warner Bros., filmmakers or Henry Cavill himself, these rumors will continue to leap tall buildings in a single bound.
