In an update to our reports saying Henry Cavill is back to play Superman again, which included word he would make appearances in the DCEU beyond the supposed Black Adam cameo, it’s sounding like the Man of Steel’s uncertain fate in The Flash is being reversed.

Originally, when the outgoing Walter Hamada had more power and his finger on the proverbial button at DC Films, the rumor was they planned to kill Cavill’s Kal-El off in favor of a Supergirl portrayed by Sasha Calle.

Scoops based on test screening leaks started to walk a lot of that back with reports of Barry (Ezra Miller) seeing somebody in a post-credit scene and smiling. The mystery man he was looking at is supposedly Superman though that was never fully confirmed.

Now it seems Warner Bros. has gone one step further and put Cavill in the movie in full glory per a few sources including Giant Freakin Robot. The geek outlet alleges the Witcher and Enola Holmes star is not only back but Dwayne Johnson pulled the strings to get him.

This is due, as we’ve been saying for a few years, to the pair being very closely connected through management and Johnson’s alleged affinity for the DCEU as it has been since Man of Steel and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Noted scooper Syl Abdul is also putting the story out and deserves credit for breaking it as he was one of the first to share intel that The Flash was undergoing major reshoots amid its delay until next year.

The exact nature of those rewrites and requisite reshoots wasn’t totally clear but apparently, they are changing the plot of The Flash to insert Superman into a third act he otherwise wasn’t part of.

Based on what we know about Act 3 of the film from the test screening testimony, Superman either replaces his cousin in the fight against Zod or joins her to defeat him. This, of course, is a guess and can’t be verified until it comes out.

Abdul adds the script has changed and that more than the third act is being restructured, noting “less is staying the same than we thought before.”

DC’s cinematic reshuffling goes on but it may wind up looking more like we remember it was around 2017 by this time next year.
