Henry Cavill’s ‘Deal’ To Return To DC As Superman Was Reportedly Just A Verbal Agreement

If you’re questioning how precisely The Rock bought Henry Cavill to return as Superman for a Black Adam cameo, solely to have that concept instantly thrown out the window, look no additional than how this all got here collectively, in response to new insider reporting.

Whereas The Rock’s ex-wife and producing accomplice, and Henry Cavill’s supervisor, Dany Garcia, bought Cavill a $250,000 payday for the exceptionally temporary cameo, the issue was that Cavill’s deal to return to the DCEU as Superman was not truly a deal in any respect. THR reviews that this was by no means greater than a verbal settlement.

Naturally, this fell aside in an extremely quick time with none form of precise contract in place. Cavill confirmed up in Black Adam on October 21. James Gunn and Peter Safran have been appointed co-heads of DC simply 4 days afterward October 25. After which this previous week, Gunn had his assembly with Cavill to inform him he wouldn’t be again as Superman in any case, although possibly they may do one thing sooner or later.

The THR piece describes Cavill as only a “pawn” in The Rock’s “failed try to regulate a chunk of DC.” It’s the newest in an extended listing of headlines which were fairly dangerous for The Rock as to how all this went down:

  • The Rock has been utilizing questionable accounting to try to show that Black Adam was truly worthwhile.
  • It’s been reported that The Rock turned down a Black Adam cameo within the upcoming Shazam movie, even supposing he’s all the time been meant to be a rival to that hero.
  • The Rock has not too long ago unfollowed WB and Black Adam official Instagram accounts, and has had little to say publicly within the wake of Cavill’s departure, pivoting to his big selection of different tasks from his vitality drink to the XFL. His declaration that Black Adam would shift the steadiness of energy within the DC Universe has been was a meme on-line, and it appears nearly sure that Gunn and Safran’s future plans for DC may have little room for Black Adam and won’t need to do battle with The Rock for management.

Briefly, it looks as if what occurred was:

The Rock noticed an influence vacuum in DC management, and used that chance to press for his personal imaginative and prescient, which was elevating Black Adam, bringing again Cavill as Superman and ultimately having the 2 of them team-up/struggle in a megablockbuster. The Rock kind of spelled out Cavill’s return as Superman forward of time to assist goose Black Adam field workplace numbers, and his ex-wife Dany Garcia truly outright spoiled the cameo with social media screenshots of his look because the premiere was airing.

However nothing was safe. Cavill’s deal was not a deal, it was a contract for a cameo or two with no precise official deal in place to get him to return. Days after he debuted, new heads of DC have been appointed that didn’t need to reply to The Rock or his plans. And now, it’s clear they’re not going to be doing something remotely like what he needed, not that Black Adam has the field workplace legs to face on to declare it must be a major a part of the DC Universe going ahead anyway.
