Henry Cavill Is Back as Superman: ‘Thank You For Your Patience, It Will Be Rewarded’

By Movieguide® Staff

Actor Henry Cavill returns as the Man of Steel after making a cameo in the latest DC Superhero movie, BLACK ADAM.

Cavill took to Instagram to celebrate the return as Superman.

“I wanted to wait until the weekend was over before posting this because I wanted to give you all a chance to watch ‘Black Adam,’” Cavill said in a video posted to his Instagram. “But now that plenty of you have, I wanted to make it official: I am back as Superman.”

Cavill said that the cameo is “just a very small taste of things to come. Thank you for your support and thank you for your patience. I promise it will be rewarded.”

Cavill first appeared as Superman in 2013’s MAN OF STEEL, which Movieguide® honored at the Movieguide® Awards Gala that year.

A portion of Movieguide®’s review of MAN OF STEEL reads:

MAN OF STEEL brings Superman back, in a big way. Superman’s father launches his baby son in a spaceship to Earth, to save him from their planet’s destruction. The evil General Zod vows to find the son and take revenge. Years later, Superman keeps a low profile on Earth, but he can’t help himself saving people’s lives with his super powers. He’s just that kind of guy. Then, Lois Lane, the intrepid reporter from the Daily Planet, discovers Superman’s identity, and General Zod and his soldiers show up on Earth, demanding that Superman surrender to them. Will Lois reveal Superman’s identity? Can Superman trust General Zod if he surrenders?

Super-smart and super-cool, MAN OF STEEL is one of the most satisfying and most moving superhero movies yet. It has all the excitement you expect, but it also delivers a powerful, redemptive, heroic story. The script is brilliantly structured, with a great character arc for Superman. There’s even a major turning point scene in a church. MAN OF STEEL has some foul language and intense action violence, however. So caution is advised.
