Henry Cavill Pokes Fun at Short-Lived Superman Return in Black Adam – S

Superman and Black Adam

Acclaimed actor Henry Cavill bemoans his luck with post-credit scenes following his ill-fated Superman cameo in Black Adam. The former DC Extended Universe star takes a jab at his short-lived return as the Man of Steel before screening his latest film.

Per Business Insider, Cavill addressed the Black Adam cameo before a screening of his latest movie, The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. During his appearance, Cavill suggested The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare director Guy Ritchie cut him after shooting something for King Arthur: Legend of the Sword‘s post-credits scene. He then quipped, “Turns out, I don’t have much luck with post-credit scenes. So, I may give up on those.”

After Black Adam, it’s understandable why Cavill might be hesitant about making post-credit appearances. Cavill made his much-awaited return as Superman in the DCEU’s Black Adam, teasing a future confrontation between himself and Dwayne Johnson’s titular antihero. Cavill announced shortly after Black Adam’s premiere that he was excited to be back as the Last Son of Krypton and was looking forward to seeing what his future would be in the role, having previously starred in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

Henry Cavill’s Superman Return Was Cut Short

However, Cavill’s Superman return was cut short when James Gunn and Peter Safran took over as co-CEOs of DC Studios in October 2022. Following their appointment, it was announced the DCEU would soon be discontinued in favor of a new-look DC Universe, with the confirmation of Gunn’s planned Superman film and that Cavill would no longer play Clark Kent. Additionally, Johnson confirmed Black Adam was axed from the DCEU, later calling the scrapped sequel “one of the biggest mysteries.” Cavill will be succeeded as Superman by David Corenswet in the DCU, with Corenswet drawing constant comparisons to Cavill in preparation for the role given their similar features.

While critics savaged Black Adam and the film became a big box-office flop for DC, it emerged as a big hit on Netflix and home video. Many reasons were posited for the movie’s box-office struggles, with Johnson allegedly angering Warner Bros. executives with his approach to making the movie and being accused of stroking his ego.

Cavill stars as former British Army official Gus March-Phillipps in The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare, which chronicles the Special Operations Executive, a covert unit organized by then-Prime Minister Winston Churchill to conduct espionage in Nazi-occupied Europe. Early reviews for The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare have been positive, generating a 79% critical score on Rotten Tomatoes. Cavill co-stars alongside Eiza González and Alan Ritchson.

The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare opens in theaters on Apr. 19. Meanwhile, Black Adam is available for streaming on Max, and it can also be streamed for free (with ads) on Tubi.
