While Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel 2 has been axed by James Gunn, the Black Superman film is still in development at Warner Bros.

Cavill donned the red cloak again in Black Adam, taking on Dwayne Johnson’s anti-hero in the film’s mid-credits scene. Shortly after, he confirmed his return to the big screen as Superman.

However, the story has a nasty twist: Cavill won’t actually be returning as Superman, despite his announcement. Under James Gunn and Peter Safran, DC Studios is taking the character in a new, rebooted direction.

Looking ahead, it looks like Aquaman 2 could be the last film in the DCEU as we know it – but some projects haven’t been abandoned, including the Black Superman film.

The Black Superman movie is still in the works according to Henry Cavill’s news

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Gunn and Safran’s plans are not expected to have any impact on the Black Superman film, which is currently in development.

“Peter and I have a working DC board, which we couldn’t be happier about; As we head into the new year, we’re able to share some exciting information about our first projects,” Gunn wrote.

“Among those on the board is Superman. In the early stages, our story will focus on an earlier part of Superman’s life, so the character will not be played by Henry Cavill. But we just had a great meeting with Henry and we’re huge fans and we’ve talked about a number of exciting opportunities to work together in the future.”

News about the film first surfaced in 2021, when journalist, novelist, and Black Panther author Ta-Nehisi Coates wrote the screenplay for the reboot, after a Black Superman was still named Kal-El.

However, there haven’t been many updates since then. While JJ Abrams is producing, he was never interested in directing the film and many agree it would have been numb for him to take it on, but a director of his own has yet to be found.

In April of this year, it was reported that Coates was ready to submit a first draft of the script “soon,” but no casting was announced despite fan demands for Michael B. Jordan.
