Superman may have gotten a cameo in Shazam!, however, the surprise appearance failed to feature Henry Cavill’s face, allowing the role to be played by a substitute.
Now that Warner Brothers has announced the release of Zack Snyder’s version of Justice League on HBO Max, word on the street has it that the studio is bringing Cavill back as the DC Extended Universe’s Man of Steel. While the studio has yet to confirm reports of Cavill’s future in the DCEU, Shazam! star John Glover hopes that Warner Brothers might allow Cavill to redo the cameo in Captain Marvel’s first standalone movie.
At the end of Shazam! fans get to see Superman from the neck down with a slightly different suit from the ones fans got to see the Man of Steel in Justice League. Glover wants Cavill to officially appear in the post-credits scene of the movie, showing the glory of Superman’s face and physique.
“.@ponysmasher now that #HenryCavill is #Superman again and WB’s dumping crazy $$$ on #ReleaseTheSnyderCut — can we get Henry’s head added to the #Shazam post credits scene with the great @ZacharyLevi #lunchroom #cameo #WhatIf #CompleteTheGag,” the actor wrote on his tweet.

Glover isn’t the only one hoping to see Cavill make a full cameo appearance in Shazam!. Fans are interested in the idea too.
Of course, there’s no knowing that Warner Brothers has planned for Cavill just yet. The studio has yet to confirm Cavill’s return to the DCEU. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed and wait and see.
