DCEU fans disappointed by no Henry Cavill Superman news, here’s what Black Adam star Dwayne Johnson had to say at SDCC 2022

With no appearance from Henry Cavill and no sign of Superman news during Warner Bros. SDCC Hall-H panel, disappointment brews among DCEU fans. Although its rumored Black Adam movie would include a supes cameo, the film’s titular star Dwayne Johnson was cryptic about addressing a potential showdown between the two DC powerhouses, raising questions if the studio has any plans to explore a Man of Tomorrow sequel.

Prior to San Diego Comic-Con, Deadline reported that the Man of Steel star would be a part of the presentation to share updates on a potential sequel. However, that hope shattered after Warner Bros. panel ended with just a trailer for Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Black Adam. Moreover, responses from The Rock on Superman prompted doubts if Cavill would reprise or another version of Kal-El would replace him in the DC Extended Universe.

Johnson got to address Henry Cavill’s Superman speaking to Brandon Davis from Though he couldn’t confirm if the two would clash, he said:

“I will say this. I will say that Henry is a buddy and he is a phenomenal Superman,” the actor says. “He is a phenomenal Superman and Henry Cavill is the Superman of our generation with respect to the other Supermans of the past. Every time I see him, we have some tequila and I say ‘This guy is Superman.’ My longtime business partner Dany Garcia has been a passionate advocate for Henry Cavill and his career for a very, very, very long time.”

While a headless Superman cameo is rumored in Black Adam, the movie director Jaume Collet-Serra said Teth-Adam “by the time the movie ends, [Black Adam] doesn’t know who Shazam or Superman is”

The no-show by Cavill has shattered hopes among DCEU and particularly the Snyderverse fanatics. Some even mocked Warner Bros. presentation comparing to Marvel Studios’ behemoth panel. Readers can check out reactions below.

It should be noted that neither WB nor Cavill’s rep confirmed or hinted at his appearance for SDCC 2022. Nonetheless, Superman’s vacuum was clearly felt among fans at the Comic-con and on social media. Furthermore, Black Adam including Viola Davis’ Amanda Waller further cements that the upcoming standalone’s events take place in the present timeline.

In addition, The Justice Society of America could even take the Justice League’s place, if that’s Warner Bros. strategy. Nothing is clear at the moment regarding WB’s strategy for DC Extended Universe, with The Flash and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom both excluded from WB’s Hall-H presentation, causing more outrage among fans.

Black Adam arrives in theatres on October 21, 2022.
