Superman star Henry Cavill is in talks to return in a cameo role as the superhero in an upcoming DC Comics film, according to sources who spoke to Variety. 

Coming up on DC’s roster are films such as Aquaman 2, The Suicide Squad and The Batman.

The actor himself hasn’t confirmed the news, though.

Cavill had previously played the role in Zack Snyder’s Man Of Steel (2013), Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017).

Speaking of Justice League, it was recently announced that the film’s elusive Snyder Cut will be released in 2021 so fans will also be seeing Cavill in a potentially better version of the film.

However, Variety’s inside sources revealed that he will not be doing additional work for the Snyder Cut.

Cavill told Men’s Health magazine in December that he’s not quite done playing Superman yet. He said, “I’ve not given up the role. There’s a lot I have to give for Superman yet. A lot of storytelling to do. A lot of real, true depths to the honesty of the character I want to get into. I want to reflect the comic books. That’s important to me. There’s a lot of justice to be done for Superman.”
