MAN OF STEEL Writer On Henry Cavill's Possible Superman Return; Says WB Wanted THE DARK KNIGHT In The DCEU

Man of Steel writer David S. Goyer shares his take on whether Henry Cavill could return as Superman, while confirming Warner bros. hoped to make The Dark Knight Trilogy part of the DC Extended Universe.

The Flash will introduce Sasha Calle's Supergirl, and it's been widely reported that the plan is for the Girl of Steel to receive her own solo movie. A body double was used for Superman's Shazam! cameo, and with no mention of Henry Cavill in Warner Bros.' plans for the DC Extended Universe over the next few years, it seems his time as the iconic DC Comics superhero has reached its end. 

When The Hollywood Reporter recently caught up with Man of Steel scribe David S. Goyer, they asked for his thoughts on Cavill's future as Superman. While he's no longer involved with the DC Extended Universe, he believes there's a chance the actor's tenure as the hero could continue.

"I think so," he said of Cavill's possible Superman return. "I’m not involved in it right now. I’ve heard the same rumors you’ve heard, but I’m not plugged into it. I’ve stepped away almost entirely from comic book-related projects other than Sandman, which I don’t really categorize as part of the normal DC universe. And I’m doing a Batman podcast. I’ve actually done so many adaptations of comics that I needed a break."

Ta-Nehisi Coates is hard at work on a standalone Superman movie that will feature a Black lead, but that's all we know about the hero's big screen future right now. 

In the same interview, Goyer teased what could have been a very different DCEU when he confirmed that Warner Bros. did once have tentative plans to have Man of Steel take place in the same world as Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. "Chris always wanted to keep the Dark Knight films as a separate entity and [the studio] kept wanting, understandably, to pull him into a whole DC expanded universe," he explained. 

"Chris obviously was a producer on Man of Steel, and it’s tempting to think they were linked, but they really weren’t. I mean, I’m sure one could retroactively do it."

There were once rumblings that Christian Bale was wanted for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, but those talks never went very far because the actor only wanted to work with Nolan. 

It could have been fun, though, eh?
