Henry Cavill talks in detail about how his cameo as Superman in Black Adam came about, including how he got permission to stop filming The Witcher season 3.
Henry Cavill stars in Justice League by Zack Snyder.
This article gives away things that happen in Black Adam.
Henry Cavill has explained how Superman's appearance in Black Adam came about.
The movie Black Adam came out in theaters on October 21. Its star, Dwayne Johnson, worked with its director, Jaume Collet-Serra, on Disney's Jungle Cruise.
The DC Extended Universe gives DC fans their first look at the live-action version of the famous antihero from comics, who was first introduced as a bad guy for Shazam.
In the ancient city of Kahndaq, the main character is given godlike powers. After being locked up for 5,000 years, he is released into the modern world.
Black Adam not only gave fans an adventure with a brand-new DCEU character, but one of its credit sequences also gave fans a chance to see an old favorite again.
Henry Cavill hasn't been in a DC movie in theaters since 2017's Justice League, but he's back as Superman, the role he's played since 2013's Man of Steel, which was the first movie in the DCEU.
Cavill recently said that he would be back as Superman in future DCEU projects, and he is now talking about how it all happened.

Josh Horowitz shared a clip from a recent 45-minute interview with Henry Cavill on his official Twitter account. The interview was Cavill's first since he said he would be back as Superman.
He talked about what it took to make his Black Adam cameo, like trying to get time off from his busy schedule on The Witcher without telling anyone what he was doing.
He said that putting on the suit again, and in particular the Man of Steel suit, was "one of the best moments of my career."
Read the whole thing below:
I was playing Witcher when I got a call: "Hey, this is going to happen, when can you do it?"
And I thought, "I work six-day weeks. I don't know when I'll be able to do this."
"Look, we have these dates," they said.
And I said, "Okay, cool, sure, I'll do it."
And we had to get permission from the people making Witcher at the time, but what we wanted to do was so secret that we couldn't tell them.
We just said, "Hey, I'm going to do this thing.
Can you give me the all-clear?"...
So I went to Warner Bros. Studios in the UK and got back into the suit on a super-secret set where everything was hidden. It was a very powerful moment for me...
I put on the Man of Steel suit again, which made me feel a lot of things.
And I chose that one because it reminded me of something from my past, and it was very important to me to just stand there and enjoy that moment.
And that was one of the best things to happen to me in my work.
It feels great to be able to put it on again.
How Henry Cavill will play Superman in DC movies in the future
The history of Henry Cavill's Superman and the DCEU
So far, there has been no official word on which future DC projects Henry Cavill will be in as Superman.
But the character could go in many different directions, such as the teased fight between Superman and Black Adam.
Producers have hinted that this fight will go on for more than one movie, but Johnson has said that the next project with Black Adam won't be his fight with Superman, to build up excitement for the showdown.
Considering all of this, the next Superman movie after Black Adam could be the long-rumored Man of Steel 2.
It's been almost a decade since the first Man of Steel came out, and even though Superman has been in other DCEU movies (like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016), fans have been begging for a new story where he's the main character.
Reports have been going around recently that Man of Steel 2 is in the early stages of development and looking for writers. It's possible that they will use that movie to bring back Superman's story before putting him back together with Black Adam.
