While many were hoping the rumors of Henry Cavill making a surprise appearance at the end of Warner Bros.' SDCC presentation yesterday would be true, he ended up not attending the event and left fans more confused than ever regarding his future status as the DC Universe's live-action Superman.
Both Dwayne Johnson (Black Adam) and Zachary Levi (Shazam! Fury of the Gods) were asked about how their characters would fare against the Man of Steel, but neither got into much detail and avoided mentioning Cavill by name, essentially giving company-friendly answers to appease the lively crowd.
With no update yesterday, reliable scooper ViewerAnon took to Twitter to share what he's heard about the whole situation between Warner Bros. and Cavill's camp, and according to his sources, Cavill may actually be "unwilling" to return to his Superman role.
What that means is hard to say, but it seems as though Warner Bros. is making some sort of effort to get Cavill back onboard as they've "asked him back on multiple occasions," but it sounds like he may not be entirely pleased with how his character has been treated thus far by the studio or he may actually just be done with the part, having moved on to The Witcher.
VA says he's heard different reasons from different sources, with some claiming he wants more creative control over Kal-El's future and others saying he's not happy with the contract offer Warner Bros. made him for future appearances. Either way, it doesn't sound like we'll have a resolution on the matter any time soon.
