Henry Cavill will continue to work at the Daily Planet as Clark Kent and save the world as Superman. The actor reportedly signed a deal to continue playing the DC superhero role for at least three more films.

Warner Bros seemed to have lost interest in doing another Superman movie after Cavill's performance in the 2017 Justice League movie received criticism. However, the studio bosses reportedly changed their minds because of the actor himself. 

According to The Culture Nerd, the interest in Superman was renewed after Zack Snyder's Watch Party for Man of Steel in May. He also announced the release of the director's cut of the Justice League next year on HBO Max. 

The positive response to the upcoming Zack Snyder Cut prompted Cavill to make a pitch for a new Superman project. Apparently, The Witcher actor's proposal was "widely praised" by Warner Bros executives and eventually led to his new contract with the franchise. 

Cavill's new Superman contract purportedly includes three stand-alone films and options for future cameos in other DC movies. It is still unclear what DCEU movies the iconic character will appear in. However, there were speculations that Superman may make a cameo in Shazam! 2 and Black Adam.

If the Snyder Cut will be a big success too, it is also expected that it could lead to more Justice League movies that will be helmed by Snyder. Cavill could also be part of these JL films. There was also speculation that Cavill could be back as Superman on HBO Max, similar to the rumors that Ben Affleck was planning to do some HBO Max projects as Batman. 

Meanwhile, Henry Cavill has been very vocal about his desire to continue wearing Superman's cape. In an interview with Men's Health last year, he stressed that he hasn't given up the role yet. 

In May, Deadline reported that there were plans for Cavill to return as Superman, but not in a Man of Steel 2 or in Robert Pattinson-led The Batman. The outlet said the Mission: Impossible - Fallout actor could be seen in Shazam! 2, Black Adam, or even in Aquaman 2. 

If it is true, the earliest fans could see Superman on the big screen again will be in December 2021 when Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam premieres. Meanwhile, Shazam! Fury of the Gods and Aquaman 2 are scheduled to be released in cinemas in 2022.
