Is Henry Cavill returning back as Superman? Back in 2013, June 12, was officially declared 'Superman Day' as a tribute to the release of 'Man of Steel', and director Zack Snyder has now shared a Vero post to celebrate the occasion while paying tribute to Henry Cavill. Snyder posted a behind-the-scenes photo of himself alongside Henry Cavill, with the caption: "My Superman past, present and future #Supermanday." With the post, Snyder makes it clear that Cavill is the only actor he wants to see in the iconic red cape. This post has also led to speculation that he may be teasing a return to the DCEU for another movie with Henry Cavill.

Cavill made his debut as Clark Kent/Superman in Zack Snyder's 'Man of Steel' (2013) before reprising the role for Snyder's follow-ups, 'Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice' (2016), 'Justice League' (2017), and fans finally saw him in the iconic red cape in 2021’s Zack Snyder’s 'Justice League'. Snyder's post could also suggest that Cavill may be reprising his role as Superman for 2023's 'The Flash', due to the confirmed presence of Ben Affleck (Batman) and Michael Shannon (Zod). Moreover, considering lead actor Ezra Miller's recent controversies and legal woes, Cavill's involvement would greatly help the film's image.

It certainly seemed like Zack Snyder’s DC chapter came to an end. There were reports that Warner Bros CEO David Zaslav has become frustrated with the direction of the DCEU, and is currently seeking a new leader similar to Marvel's Kevin Feige, to guide DC Films. The studio has also not made any announcements as to how they will proceed with new Superman projects, and it's been suggested that Cavill who is at present 39, is "aging out" of the role, However, Snyder's social media post indicates that he might work with Henry Cavill once again for another Superman movie. The director’s currently working on his ' Army of the Dead' franchise, along with his upcoming mega-project 'Rebel Moon'.

We're still not sure what the future holds for the British actor's take on the iconic hero, but Snyder clearly wants to see him don the cape again and Snyder Cut fans are hoping that the director's caption implies that he and Cavill are part of the studio's Superman revival.
