Henry Cavill is trending on social media for THIS reason

Henry Cavill has been trending on social media over the past few days, which may be confusing to some fans, although for others who have been following the DC Extended Universe closely, it’s perhaps the worst-kept secret in Hollywood.

Cavill, 39, debuted as Clark Kent/Superman in 2013’s Man of Steel, and returned in 2016’s Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017’s Justice League, along with 2021’s Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

While fans have been clamoring for a Superman sequel for many years, it seems that it is becoming a reality… with his appearance in the new film Black Adam already leaking all over the Internet.

There have been rumors for months that Cavill would return in Black Adam, although they were never fully confirmed until this week during the New York City premiere.

A post-credits scene after the movie features the long-awaited scene where Cavill’s Superman confronts Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam.

Cavill’s Man of Steel tells Black Adam, ‘It’s been a while since anyone’s made the world this nervous,’ likely referring to himself, setting up some sort of showdown between the comic book characters.

The actual post-credit scene started to leak onto Twitter and TikTok on Thursday, although both social media platforms have removed them.

Twitter said in a statement to Variety that it was ‘removing the content in line with our rules,’ while TikTok is doing the same.

While Cavill hasn’t said anything publicly about his return as Superman, Johnson has hinted at the Cavill cameo in a few different interviews.

He spoke with Entertainment Tonight on the red carpet at the New York premiere, where the interviewer stated that the ‘cat was out of the bag’ about Cavill’s appearance.

While Johnson didn’t exactly confirm the cameo… he didn’t deny it either, revealing the true ‘goal’ of the movie.

‘I can tell you that the whole goal and initiative of Black Adam was to build out the DC Universe by introducing not only Black Adam, but the entire JSA (Justice Society of America),’ Johnson began.

‘So, for years, audiences have been so passionate and vocal about – we’ve established Black Adam as the most powerful and unstoppable force on our planet,’ he added.

‘But the fans have been so passionate about… “Where is the most unstoppable force in the universe? Where is he?” Well… we’ve all been fighting for this moment, so I will say this: Welcome home,’ Johnson teased, referring to Cavill’s Superman.

He also teased the cameo in a Wednesday appearance on The Tonight Show, where host Jimmy Fallon also hinted at the cameo.

I have been saying this is a new era in the DC Universe that I love. Yes we’re going to introduce new characters, but new era also means listening to the fans,’ Johnson said.

‘For a very long time, for years, fans have been screaming. We established Black Adam as the most powerful and unstoppable force on this planet. The most powerful and unstoppable force in the entire universe has been on the sidelines for too long,’ he added.

So, myself, Seven Bucks, Danny Garcia, Hiram Garcia, we fought, and we weren’t gonna take no for an answer. We were gonna deliver it to the fans. And then, at the end, um…welcome home,’ Johnson teased.
