It's no secret to a lot of fans that Henry Cavill and the "old" Warner Bros. regime didn't always see eye to eye and there's a reason why the Superman actor has been kept away from the franchise for a number of years. Now that Cavill is officially making his comeback as the DC Universe's Man of Steel, it's already safe to say that he'll no longer have to deal with questionable decisions from top executives.
Believe it or not, the British actor actually had creative freedom over his pivotal Black Adam cameo which almost sounds hard to believe, considering DC Films' Walter Hamada has been calling the shots since Zack Snyder left the franchise in 2017.
Speaking with Josh Horowitz on a live recording of his Happy Sad Confused podcast, the Batman v Superman star said that chose to wear his original Man of Steel costume instead of the altered Justice League version. According to him, he wore the particular suit out of nostalgia.
He explains: "It was a very powerful moment for me. I wasn't too sure how I was going to feel, whether I was going to be, 'Okay cool, back in the suit,' or whether it was going to be something which was very emotionally connective, because I put the Man of Steel suit back on. [...] And I chose that one in particular because of the nostalgia attached to the suit, and it was incredibly important for me to just be standing there and enjoying that moment. And, yeah, that is one of the top moments in my career, it feels great to have the opportunity to wear it again."

Henry's return to the franchise may have seemed like a huge pipe dream all these years but thankfully, WB Discovery was smart enough to grant the fandom's collective wishes. Hopefully, this is the start of a fruitful partnership between them.
Meanwhile, details surrounding Man of Steel 2 are still being kept under wraps.
