2013 marked as the year when the DC Extended Universe came to life, through Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel film, starring Henry Cavill as Superman. While Cavill has appeared in other DC films since then, we’ve yet to get a sequel to the Man of Steel franchisement. There have been rumors here and there that a second installment is being eyed, but nothing concrete from Warner Bros. has been said.
With San Diego Comic-Con just around the corner, the studios – except Marvel Studios – are gearing up for their massive presentations at Hall H and more. We already know that Aquaman and Shazam! are set to appear at Hall H for some exciting panels. There is also the potential for Wonder Woman 1984 to have some form of presence, with Gal Gadot being said to appear in some capacity.
For any Superman fans out there, there is some potential hope for some news at Comic-Con this year! According to Revenge of the Fans, Warner Bros. is apparently wanting Cavill to be present for their DC presentation at Comic-Con. While host Mario-Francisco Robles do stress that it isn’t guaranteed to be a Man of Steel 2 announcement, it is one of the possibilities. Even if it’s not the announcement of a sequel, there is the potential of Cavill being present to help unveil the DC trailers that we’re getting.
Francisco-Robles also bring up that Warner Bros. is paying close attention to how Mission: Impossible – Fallout (which Cavill will star in) does before they decide where they go with a Superman sequel. Long story short, it does appear that Cavill’s time as Superman isn’t ending any time soon. People have been paying attention to Cavill’s recent Instagram post where he is seen getting into Kryptonian shape once again.

Whatever happens, we’ll hopefully have some news on what is going on with the Last Son of Krypton in the DCEU. Cavill definitely seems game to keep going and while Justice League was a mixed bag for people, Cavill’s performance as the Man of Tomorrow was well-received amongst fans.
