Henry Cavill confirms his return as Superman

Henry Cavill has officially announced that he will reprise his role as Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman, in the DC Comics extended cinematic universe. This news has been eagerly anticipated by fans of heroic films.

The thrilling revelation comes after Cavill appeared in "Black Adam," the brand-new DC superhero movie starring Dwayne Johnson, at the end of the credits while donning the classic red and blue outfit and cape. (Warner Bros. Discovery, which is CNN's parent company, is also home to DC Films.)

Since the 2017 version of that movie, "Justice League," and before that, the modified "Zack Snyder's Justice League," it was Cavill's first time playing the part. Cavill published a profile picture of himself as the enduring hero on Instagram before addressing his followers in a self-portrait video.

Before talking about his return, he said at the outset that he intended to hold off until after people had had a chance to view Black Adam. "I wanted to make it official: I'm back as Superman", Cavill remarked, "but now that many of you have [seen the movie]."

He praised the patience of the fans, "My friends, this is just a tiny preview of what's to come. The dawn of renewed hope", Cavill added a caption. "Your patience will be rewarded. Thank you."

One of the most thrilling scenes in the movie, Cavill's brief scene at the conclusion of "Black Adam" teases a future showdown between the famous Kryptonian and Johnson's all-powerful Adam.
