In the dazzling era of DC’s best works, Henry Cavill once soared to superstardom with Man of Steel’s celestial symphony. By weaving Superman’s vulnerability into his undeniable invincibility, the studio breathed new life into the age-old tale. Despite that, the continuation of the enduring legend of Superman through a sequel was shelved later by James Gunn. For fans of the British actor and the superhero, this marked a dark moment in DC’s history.

So, it is a given that many still hold out hopes for his return in Man of Steel 2. When a post suggesting that another studio besides DC may have picked up the long-lost project; it was bound to cause a stir. Now, an X (formerly known as Twitter) user has hinted at such a development recently. According to the “rumor”, Warner Bros. may have relinquished the project and handed it to another studio instead.
