Henry Cavill Is Reportedly In Talks To Reprise His Role As Superman, But It Won't Be In 'Man of Steel 2'

Now that we finally have gotten confirmation that Warner Bros. will be releasing the Zack Snyder version of Justice League next year on HBO Max, fans have been wondering how the new film could impact the future of DC. Well it seems the ripples are already starting to have their effect, as its being reported that Henry Cavill will indeed be playing Superman again in future projects for the studio. This news some after speculation has been rampant the last few years that Warner Bros. had no future plans for Cavill's Superman, and a growing belief that the actor would inevitably be recast. Now after years of those rumors, we can now rest assured that we will be able to see Cavill return to the part of Kal-El after all.

The news comes courtesy of Deadline who make it clear that although Cavill will be playing Superman again, the studio won't be giving him a new standalone film. Instead they want to use him as a sort of Nick Fury figure for their DC universe by having him appear in several of their other films. The most likely of these seem to be the upcoming Shazam 2! and Black Adam, two characters who have crossed paths with Clark Kent often in the comics and share similar powers to him. The character of Superman actually made a brief cameo in Shazam!, but the part was played by a double due to the hold out between Cavill and the studio at the time. The idea of Superman and Shazam teaming up against Black Adam has already been brought to the comics, and The Rock himself has said he would love to see it in one of his films.

This really does come as a surprise given the years of news we heard about Warner Bros' lack of interest in Cavill's version of the character, instead wanting to focus on Supergirl or even recasting Superman with an actor like Michael B. Jordan. While most of those rumors were later debunked, there was also talk that Cavill was unhappy that he never got a Man of Steel 2. The film that launched the DCEU in 2013, other characters such as Wonder Woman, Aquaman, and Shazam! saw their sequels green-lit almost immediately while his never did. DC's focus on team-up films like Batman v. Superman and Justice League seemed like a reasonable explanation for there being no Man of Steel 2 at the time, but once the studio had apparently begun to distance themselves from an expanded universe the justification became less clear.

Its very possible that the Snyder Cut has brought some new life to this shared universe idea, with an eventual future team-up film coming way down the line. Having Cavill's Superman show up in some of these sequels could be a good way of letting audiences know they still all exist in the same universe. Cavill has really only shown up in three DC movies over the span of almost the last decade, which I'm sure pales in comparison to the trilogies and Justice League sequels he was originally pitched in 2012. When you compare that to the amount of times Chris Evans and Robert Downey Jr. made MCU appearances throughout that time, it obvious his Superman has been severely underused. Cavill himself has always been a big fan of the character and has become a fan favorite, so seeing him come back in any capacity will surely make him and the fans very happy.

So how do you feel about Cavill coming back as Superman? Do you think he should get his own sequel or do you like the idea of him making cameos? Let us know below!

New Trailer For Christopher Nolan's 'Tenet' Confirms The Movie Will Hit Theaters At Some Point

Movie fans had many projects they were looking forward to seeing this summer, but one of its staples was going to be a new time travel film from Christopher Nolan. But of course the COVID-19 pandemic has made the chances of the film's release in theaters this July seem less and less likely, but the director who has been vocal about wanting audiences to see his movies on the big screen had been persistent Tenet will still get that very treatment. The movie still holds it July 17th release date while other big project have completely vacated the next three months of release dates, but it still remains unclear if it will eventually be moved as well.

Below is the trailer for Tenet:
As for the film itself it definitely gives off a vibe most similar to Nolan's classic Inception, but this time dealing with inversion and time travel rather than dreams. Nolan is well known for not giving away too much about the movie's plot in his trailers, so of course its hard to really figure out everything going on here (Which makes it really hard to right an article about, but I'll give it a shot). What we do know is John David Washington (BlacKkKlansman) will be the main protagonist who is being brought in to learn about these methods of time travel through experts like Elizabeth Debicki and Robert Pattinson's characters.

Like Inception, it seems that the film will see a sort of team of characters form including Debicki, Pattinson, Michael Caine, and Himesh Patel (Yesterday). Nolan has once again assembled an impressive ensemble of young actors here, and really has only brought back one of his frequent collaborators with Caine. Kenneth Branagh will clearly be playing the movie's main villain who is a Russian bent on starting World War III, and who wants to acquire the Tenet technology. 

We also get a look at some major action set pieces, including a chase scene in a theater that feels like it came right of Nolan's Dark Knight trilogy. There's also the car chase scene where time is reversed that we saw in the first trailer, as well as a scenes of a plane being crashed into a building which Pattinson's character jokes about at the end. Knowing Nolan's love of practical effects, it shouldn't come as a surprise that most of these scenes are real and just make the movie even more appealing to film fanatics. 

So what did you think of the Tenet trailer? Do you have any theories about what the movie could be about? Do you think it will get a new release date soon? Let us know below!

Warner Bros. Finally Announces They Will Release The Snyder Cut Of 'Justice League' On HBO Max

During these strange times of the COVID-19 pandemic, optimistic movie news has been rare with the majority of articles simply announcing everything thats been delayed. With movie theaters closed and most TV and movie sets shutdown, many things have been left up in the air about when we'll be able to go to the movies again, and what the future of that experience will look like. Having said all that, it seems like the release of many streaming services such as Peacock and HBO Max couldn't have come at a better time, as they've all seen a huge surge in viewers with so many people stuck at home. As if they even needed any more to draw viewers in, now HBO Max has promised fans a movie they've been waiting three years for, and never thought they would get.

The well documented history of Zack Snyder's Justice League is familiar to most comic book fans who remember the director leaving the project following a family tragedy and being replaced by Avengers director Joss Whedon. Several reshoots were conducted including the infamous Henry Cavill mustache scenes that were terribly CGI-ed out, and other plot points and scenes from Snyder's original story were cut completely to keep a lighter tone. The end product was enjoyed by some, but other die hard fans felt it was just a messy edit of what Snyder originally intended.

"Release The Snyder Cut" has since become a movement on social media, with fans trying to convince the studio to release a version of the movie with all of his original scenes. The director himself had teased that this version of the movie existed, but of course would have to be finished and supported by the studio. Even Justice League actors such as Gal Gadot and Jason Momoa had voiced their support for its release. Well last week, during a live re-watch of Man of Steel along with Henry Cavill, Snyder confirmed the project will be coming to HBO Max next year. The studio will be providing a budget for Snyder to finish the CGI for the scenes cut and his original score by Junkie XL instead of Danny Elfman will be added in, but there will reportedly be no need for any reshoots.

There's many story elements fans expect to see in this version including seeing Darkseid on screen, Martian Manhunter, and more of an evil black suited Superman just to name a few. With the DCEU sort of in limbo as DC has turned its focus to solo project like Shazam!, Joker, Wonder Woman 1984, and Robert Pattinson's The Batman, its likely this movie will be a one off and won't revive the cinematic universe Snyder had planned back in the day. None the less it still gives fans a chance to see not only Snyder's original movie, but also more scenes of Ben Affleck's Batman who we probably won't get to see again in future films.

So how do you feel about the Snyder cut getting released? Do you think it will be better than the original Justice League? Let us know below!
