Henry Cavill Will Not Appear in 'Shazam 2' as Superman

Sad news for DC Comics fans who were hoping to see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman in the upcoming movie Shazam 2… it’s not happening.

There have been rumors swirling that Henry would be appearing in the upcoming film Shazam! Fury of the Gods, but sources close to the project are denying this to Variety.

Superman makes a brief appearance in the first Shazam movie when the film’s title superhero, played by Zachary Levi, convinces Superman to come to Billy Batson’s high school to confront some bullies. In the scene, Superman is only seen from the neck down.

Shazam 2‘s director David F. Sandberg took to Twitter to address the rumors, without going into too much detail.

“Not going to comment on casting rumors for several reasons. One being you can’t be sure about anything until it’s happened. Halfway through shooting Shazam the plan was still for Cavill to be in it. Scoopers could have scooped that and been right at the time but wrong in the end,” he said. “Though I can confirm with ~90% certainty that Shazam will appear in Shazam 2. So if you’re a fan of that character you might enjoy Shazam 2.”

Henry Cavill Wants to Play Superman for Years!

Henry Cavill wants to continue playing Superman amid reports that he may be returning to the superhero role!

“I’ve always been a fan of Superman,” the 37-year-old actor told Variety. “With a character like that, you carry the mantle with you off set. And it becomes part of your public representation. When you meet children, children don’t necessarily see me as Henry Cavill, but they might see Superman, and there’s a responsibility which comes with that. Because it’s such a wonderful character, it’s actually a responsibility I’m happy to have, and I hope that I get to play more of Superman in years to come.”

“My life has changed dramatically because of it,” Henry added. “And it has given me plenty of opportunity for roles, and yeah, it’s been one of those characters which changed the entire course of my career. I’m incredibly grateful for it, and it’s also taught me a lot about myself.”

“He’s so good, he’s so kind, and when you start to compare yourself to him, because you’re playing him, you start to really look inwards,” he continued. “You say, ‘Am I a good person? Can I be a good enough person to play Superman?’ And if you ever hear a whisper in there which is like, ‘Hmm, hold on a second. Maybe not,” then you adjust it, and you make sure you are a better person. I think that’s all we can do in life.”

Henry played the role in three movies – Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
