Everyone can relax, Superman returns. Not just like the chocolate box that is saving kittens and stuff, a little bit of that, absolutely, but also the badass version of Superman. In 2018, a report circulated that Cavill's Superman wasn't going to appear again. ComicBook.com adds he might not get a sequel to Man of Steel for now. According to the outlet, Superman will be used similarly to Mark Ruffalo's Bruce Banner/Hulk from the Marvel Cinematic Universe, appearing in both cameos and supporting roles.

Neither Cavill nor Warner Bros have confirmed the report whether the actor's return is likely.

Cavill, 37, has played the superhero in Man Of Steel (2013), Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017), but the box-office results for these movies were not stellar. The cut we're getting has turned into an even grander project.

Warner Bros. and Cavill's reps couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday.

In the meantime, Cavill has been hard at work leading Netflix's upcoming fantasy series adaptation The Witcher, which recently received an early Season 2 renewal.

Since his last stint as Superman in Justice League, fans have been eagerly waiting for an update on the next Superman movie starring Henry Cavill. The tipping point came weeks ago when it was reported the announced Supergirl movie was off. Meant to softly reboot Super-lore in the DC Extended Universe, it had a scriptwriter in Oren Uziel but failed to enter production. Can we expect to see Superman in the upcoming Shazam! sequel movie (considering he was supposed to initially cameo in the first film), or could he lend a hand to the Suicide Squad? Kroll also pointed out that his sources say the star won't appear in Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam or Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman.

That might not be for long though.

The news of his return has left Twitter jumping with joy. The status is: "You'll see".
