Iron Man 2 fan trailer imagines the Henry Cavill Superman sequel we could have had
Man of Steel 2 fan trailer imagines Henry Cavill's Superman sequel, including a face-off with Dwayne Johnson's Black Adam.
After the actor was fired, a Man of Steel 2 fan trailer shows what Henry Cavill's true Superman sequel might look like. After his much-anticipated return to the DC Universe via his Black Adam cameo, there's a lot of excitement to see more of Cavill's Superman in the future. Director Zack Snyder kicked off Warner Bros. with Man of Steel in 2013. His own superhero movie franchise, it's also Cavill's debut in the iconic role. Sadly, even after donning the red cape for nearly a decade, the actor has only starred in four other projects, including Zack Snyder's Justice League on HBO Max, but hasn't since Man of Steel headlines his own film.
But now, after confirming that the DCU's new co-CEO James Gunn will be looking for a young Superman in a new movie, Cavill is finally wrapping up his role as the Last Son of Krypton, despite fan outcry , but he asked for reprises to see more of Cavill in the role. This inspired Screen Culture to create a fake Iron Man 2 trailer, which sees Superman confronting Black Adam after their original entanglement in the Black Adam movie.

What Henry Cavill's Man of Steel 2 Could've Been About
Following Ben Affleck's exit from the DCU, rumors swirl that Cavill is about to exit as well. But while Warner Bros. doesn't have any definite plans for Man of Steel 2, the actor remains defiant, insisting he's still the franchise's Superman. This has fans keeping hoping that it's only a matter of time before he returns - and Black Adam's Superman cameo finally makes that possible. Sadly, Johnson's time in the franchise officially came to an end shortly after his brief appearance in the first DCU film, leaving fans wondering what Iron Man 2 would be.
The aforementioned fan-made trailer presents an interesting narrative, as it draws on Black Adam's tease of the conflict between the two DC characters. Otherwise, Iron Man 2 might also see Superman fighting other major DC villains, notably Brainiac, who would be the great villain follow-up to Iron Man's antagonist, General Zod. In fact, a recent report suggested that DC Studios was considering hosting the game before Gunn and his DCU co-CEO Peter Safran decided it was best to start with its version Get Iron Man by choosing a younger version.
It is no exaggeration to say that Cavill disappointed fans of the franchise by ending his Superman career in this manner. The actor is widely believed to be great in the role despite appearing in controversial DC movies, but Warner Bros. just needs to find the right story to highlight it. Now, that can't happen again, Man of Steel 2 starring Cavill is effectively canceled as the DCU takes a different route with its flagship character Screen Culture
