It was rumoured that the actor had left the role in late 2018.

According to Deadline, Henry Cavill is currently in talks with Warner Bros. to reprise the role of Superman in a future DC project. While the report states that no sequel to Man of Steel is currently in development, news of Cavill's return is sure to come as a boost to DC fans anxious that they wouldn't see his interpretation of the character ever again.

The Hollywood Reporter had previously revealed back in 2018 that Cavill had left the role of Superman as Warner Bros. continued to shake up their plans for the DC Universe on screen. Afterwards, it was rumoured that the studio would be pursuing a Supergirl project instead, while other reports claimed that Michael B. Jordan had been pitching his own version of a Superman film to WB in 2019.

It remains to be seen what the extent of Cavill's renewed involvement with the character will be. Deadline speculate that he could expand upon Superman's cameo in 2018's Shazam with a more fully fledged appearance in the sequel, while Aquaman 2 and Black Adam also remain viable options.

The Rock did state a few years ago that Black Adam will go up against Superman at one point in the future, so maybe the time for that will come soon?
