Renowned director Matthew Vaughn is eyeing a collaboration with Henry Cavill in a reimagined Superman movie, signaling a departure from the traditional DC Universe. Cavill, known for his portrayal of the iconic superhero, last donned the cape in 2013’s Man of Steel. However, with DC Studios steering towards new creative directions, Cavill’s future as Superman seemed uncertain, until now.

In a recent interview on BroBible’s Post Credit Podcast, Vaughn expressed interest in helming a Superman project, specifically mentioning the possibility of adapting the acclaimed comic storyline, Red Son. Vaughn praised the comic’s ingenuity, highlighting its relevance in today’s world and hinting at Cavill’s potential involvement:

“I thought Red Son was one of the cleverest comics I’d ever read, and the current world we’re living in, it’s certainly become a lot more relevant…Wow, could you imagine remaking Red Son with Henry Cavill? That would be an interesting movie…”

Vaughn’s enthusiasm for exploring alternate narratives within the DC multiverse opens up exciting possibilities for Cavill’s Superman. While there are no concrete plans for Cavill’s return, an Elseworlds movie presents an ideal avenue for the actor to reprise his role. This approach not only respects Cavill’s legacy but also allows for creative storytelling without conflicting with ongoing DC projects.


Moreover, an Elseworlds movie could set the stage for a long-awaited showdown between Superman and Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam, teased in the 2022 film. This potential clash not only promises thrilling action but also serves as a fitting conclusion to Cavill’s Superman saga, offering closure to fans invested in his portrayal.

As speculation mounts regarding Cavill’s return, one thing remains certain: his impact as Superman transcends any single film or franchise. From his debut in Man of Steel to his potential resurgence in future projects, Cavill has left an indelible mark on the superhero genre, solidifying his status as a Hollywood heavyweight.


While the future of Cavill’s Superman hangs in the balance, fans can revisit his iconic moments in past DC movies, celebrating his contributions to the superhero pantheon. Whether through an Elseworlds adventure or a multiverse crossover, the possibility of Cavill reprising his role ensures that the legacy of Superman endures, inspiring generations to come.
