Now that Warner Brothers has confirmed the release of Zack Snyder’s version of the Justice League on HBO Max, all sorts of DC rumors have been circulating online. One of the most recent reports making the rounds on the rumor mill suggests that J.J. Abrams is doing a Superman movie for the DC Extended Universe, and his choice for the Man of Steel may be Henry Cavill.
According to a report by YouTube leaker John Campea, while Warner Brothers has no current plans in place for Man of Steel 2, sources have told him that Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker director J.J. Abrams is doing Superman for DC and that the filmmaker may have Cavill reprise the role.
“The reason they haven’t announced anything is they want Abrams to still have some flexibility to make those decisions,” Campae said in his video.
Of course, this isn’t the first time that rumors have popped up about Warner Brothers having Abrams work on a Superman movie. There were a lot of reports about the studio’s plans for collaboration with Abrams on the DCEU ever since word came out that WB was making a deal together with Abrams and his production company, Bad Robert.
As with all rumors, of course, we have to advise fans to take the report with a grain of salt. We can’t be certain of anything until Warner Brothers decides to announce this so-called Superman movie from Abrams.
We’ll just have to cross our fingers and wait and see.
