Henry Cavill Rumored To Appear In San Diego Comic-Con For DC's Hall H Panel

His appearance at Comic-Con may confirm his presence in future projects and possible new projects that might be announced.

The symbol of hope reigns on! Fans patiently wait for all the cool things in store each year when it comes to the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) and Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU). Therefore, Hall H at San Diego Comic-Con is the perfect place to announce new projects in these universes. According to ScreenRant, the panel is rumored to have Superman actor Henry Cavill, this year, paving way for possible announcements of projects involving the superhero. 


Many fans were convinced that his character had been effectively written out after Justice League. With Supergirl’s increased presence in The Flash film, Superman has no business making an appearance. However, going by reports, the Man of Steel star is rumored to make a surprise appearance during the WB/DC Hall H panel at SDCC on Saturday. This may possibly give fans more information about future Superman appearances in the DCEU. 

Funnily enough, Superman made a cheeky appearance in both Shazam! and Peacemaker, but Cavill's face isn’t visible in either of these cameos. It would be a missed opportunity to not include the character that started the DCEU in the later sections of the universe. 


This year, the studio was initially slated to discuss Shazam: Fury of the Gods and Black Adam. But with the rumors of Cavill's return flying around, there may be something even more exciting coming along (we’re looking at you, The Rock). Dwayne Johnson and Henry Cavill have both taken to pitting their characters against each other in a show of strength on social media. It would be brilliant if Warner Brothers decides to do a sequence showing Black Adam fighting Superman. Considering The Rock’s stance on fan service, the cameo rumblings may not go to waste. 


“From back in the day when I was wrestling in flea markets for $40 bucks a match, all the way to now,” Johnson tweeted earlier this month. “I've learned to always listen to the audience because they will always lead you to where you need to go. I hear you & I always got you.” Additionally, Cavill also expresses how he isn’t done with the character, ComicBook.com reported. “I felt like Man of Steel was a wonderful opening story, an origin story to Superman. It left a lot of space for him to grow beyond that and become the hero that we recognize. Batman v Superman took a hard turn down a darker route and it was a Batman perspective story and so it didn't really show the aspects of Superman which I was very, very keen to show,” Cavill said. “Justice League Snyder Cut definitely [sic] leant into that a bit more.”


There are a lot of things that Cavill wishes to bring to the screen, showcasing the Superman “we all know and love from the comics.” He said, “I had a bit more of a gentleness to the tone of the thing, but I would love to have the opportunity to play the Superman that we all know and love from the comics, as a continuation of his development and we see the hero.” 

He elaborated, “That would be really, really exciting for me because there is an opportunity to tell a lot of interesting story there. It's just about finding the right hooks to have a character that is as good and idealistic as Superman.” Cavill continued, “That there are wonderful opportunities to delve into what it's like to exist as him and those hardships that come with that. When you have to save everyone, how hard is that on you? That could be an interesting line to run.”
