6 Best Uses For Henry Cavill In DCEU's Future

Superman's Returned. Hopefully clean shaven this time...

Warner Bros.

We recently heard how Henry Cavill had signed a new contract with Warner Bros. to appear as Superman in more films in the future. It's probably no surprise this came in the wake of the Snyder Cut being announced for HBO Max next year, suggesting that the studio is eager to continue working with the, admittedly shaky, continuity so far established.

Whether or not that continuity is in line with the theatrical cut of Justice League, or Snyder's streaming-only version, remains to be seen, but it does bode well for those of us that want to see Cavill continue his work in the cape and tights. Although the films in which his Superman has appeared haven't been so well received so far, Cavill's performance is rarely questioned (upper-lip-hair notwithstanding) showing that if given the chance, he could give us the version of the character we deserve.

While there's currently no official word on a Man of Steel sequel, with Cavill's return being compared to Mark Ruffalo's Hulk - co-starring in other heroes' solo films and team-ups, with a broader arc taking place over several movies - we still don't know which future movies he might appear in, or how he might be utilised in the DCEU going forward.

But given Warner Bros' track record with the character, we have no reason to assume they're going to get it right....
