Although DC and Warner Bros try to prevent the use Superman on his latest projects, that doesn’t mean fans want him gone forever. Unfortunately, fans have to accept the reality that it most likely won’t happen. As a result, fans have decided to accept that if Superman doesn’t appear in one last movie, they will finally accept that the Man of Steel is no longer wanted in the DCEU.
Reddit user u/AAAFate asked fans at r/DC_Cinematic if they’re ready to let go of the iconic superhero if he doesn’t appear in black adam. Fans (and Dwayne Johnson) have demanded that Superman taking on Black Adam would be awesome, not just for DC and Warner Bros, but for the entire DCEU. But if the superhero never shows up in person, if Henry Cavill doesn’t reprise his role one last time, is this the perfect time to give up?
Turns out OP isn’t alone, as other fans have felt the same way. While having two of DC’s powerful characters face off might be an awesome idea, it’s something that’s unlikely to happen. Especially with the direction that Warner Bros. has taken the character lately, with headless cameos at the end of the movies. Some believe that even if Superman doesn’t appear in the film, he could be a springboard for him to be invited back into the DCEU.
Other fans have already accepted that he’s not coming back and that it’s unnecessary for Cavill to make a comeback. Fans also said that they would enjoy the movie, regardless of whether Cavill’s Superman is in it or not.
Despite the recent failures that were batman versus superman Y League of Justice, Superman remains a much-loved character in the DC franchise. And it would be a shame if we never see him again in the DCEU, but maybe it’s a good thing. Maybe we should enjoy the dark new heroes that will be featured in DC’s newest projects.
