During a recent podcast episode Marvelvisiono insider Devin Faraci stated that Henry Cavill will in fact reprise his role as Superman in ‘black adam‘.
But the highlight of the interview was when Do it revealed that the star will also star in a sequel to ‘Steel man’.
“The main reason why Henry Cavill accepted to return as Superman in ‘black adam‘ it’s because Dwayne Johnson managed to convince him. Johnson pressed the Warner Bros. and made them contact Cavilland they had to sign a new contract with him, including to develop a new ‘Superman’. all because Johnson he insisted.”
Although nothing has been confirmed so far, Johnson always made a point of saying that “Cavill is the Superman of our generation.”in addition to praising his performance as “phenomenal”.
Johnson added that he and Cavill are great friends and every time they met, he said to himself: “this guy is Superman”.
Unfortunately, Do it didn’t give further details about the contract, so it’s unknown when a new solo hero movie should go into production.
For those who don’t remember, Cavill debuted as Clark Kent in ‘The Man of Steel‘ (2013) and reprized the role in ‘Batman vs Superman‘ (2016) e ‘Justice League‘ (2017), in addition to the Snydercut of the film, released in 2021.
However, many fans would like to see the hero in a sequel to the 2013 film and also interacting with other characters, such as ‘Black Adam’.
Now we just have to wait to find out if Superman will be in the feature, which debuts in october 20 in national cinemas.
According to Box Office Prothe adaptation must collect between $55 – 70 million in the first opening weekend in the US and Canada.
The portal mentions that one of the positive points is that there is great expectation for the debut of Johnson in superhero comic book adaptations.
The value is similar to the opening of ‘Aquaman’which surpassed $1 billion at the worldwide box office.
In addition, the star himself has been doing a great job of publicity through his wide fan base on social media.
On the other hand, the downside is that reactions to trailers for ‘Black Adam’ were inconsistent throughout the year, with lower-than-expected viewing numbers for a film of this magnitude.
The first trailer for the feature had only 8 million of views after 24 hours (via Reddit), while the trailer for ‘Batman‘ reached 31 million of views in the same period (via Film Updates).
Furthermore, ‘black adam‘ will face competition from ‘Ticket to Paradise‘.
Despite having already been released, the romantic comedy is still expected to remain in theaters weeks after the arrival of ‘black adam‘, and the protagonists George Clooney e Julia Roberts are being quite attractive so far.
Finally, ‘black adam‘ should end the domestic run with a box office of around $135 – 175 million.
Remembering that the film will be released in october 20 in national cinemas.
Are you in anticipation?
Nearly 5,000 years after he was bestowed with the omnipotent powers of the Egyptian gods – and just as quickly arrested – Black Adam (Dwayne Johnson) is released from his earthly tomb, ready to unleash his unique form of justice on the modern world.
