Jason Momoa Breaks Silence on Henry Cavill’s DC Comeback
Aquaman actor Jason Momoa is thrilled to see Henry Cavill back as Superman in the DCU. Momoa is just the latest star to share their reaction to the shocking news that Cavill is not done donning the blue-and-red, as the Man of Steel actor popped up for a surprise cameo in last month’s Black Adam. Cavill’s return is just the start of a wave of changes coming to Warner Bros. and DC Studios, as WB looks to reinvent how they tackle super-powered storytelling. Momoa has already sounded off on other headlines from this new era of the DCU. This time though, the actor spoke on the recent DC news of Justice League co-star Henry Cavill coming back to the franchise after questions over if fans would ever see his take on the Kryptonian again. In an interview with Entertainment Tonight (ET), Aquaman star Jason Momoa shared his reaction to news of Henry Cavill coming back to the DCU as Clark Kent/Superman. Momoa said that “it’s awesome” that Cavill is back, noting that he “(loves) Henry” while calling him “amazing.”He also reacted to the Superman actor’s first appearance back at DC in Black Adam, opining:”Dwayne’s amazing, so I’m like ’Wow, what an epic thing if that happens for DC.’”Momoa has been making waves recently with his talk of a “dream” project of his being in the works at the newly-minted DC Studios. The actor told ET Canada: “Because of me, and my dream… and I brought [it] up to Zack Snyder a long time ago, and now, it went to [James] Gunn. and went to my boy Safran and they’re like, ’hell yeah.’”What this actually is, remains to be seen. But with both new DC Studios Co-CEO James Gunn and Momoa hinting at Superman villain Lobo being involved in something coming up the in the DCU, and with the Aquaman actor voicing his desire to play the villain in the past, the excitement surrounding Cavill’s return could mean a whole lot more.
