Despite the reports that Henry Cavill is now back at DC Studios, co-CEO James Gunn took to social media on Monday to share his love with Superman and debunk any rumors of bad blood between them.
On his Twitter profile, Gunn shared a photograph of the poster for Richard Donners Superman, which commemorated his 44th birthday over the weekend. The tweet was accompanied by a star and heart emoji, and he stuck around, explaining that he didn’t ever like to tweet from fans. One of them was directed at Superman himself, while a fan asked if a crowd would see Superman in the future. Gunn responded that of course they would not, adding that Superman is, indeed, a huge priority.
Yes, yes. Superman is a huge priority, if not the biggest.

In another thread, Gunn also answered a question about rumors that Henry Cavill was cast out of the role of Superman after just returning to Black Adam in 2022. The dissent of the Nerds Twitter account tagged Gunn on the tweet, saying Gunn didn’t like Cavill. Gunn said it was just wrong before then a little back then.

Even though it isn’t known what a future holds for Superman, Gunn clearly seems to know how important both the character and the Henry Cavill are to fans of the property. To have either made a return in the near future is to be seen but must be done.
The next DC Universe release will beBehazam. Fury of the Gods, which libses March 17. The film stars Ezra Miller, Blue Beetle and Acquaman and the Lost Kingdom. As soon as Gunn and Safran agree on their 10-year plan for the DCU, the future is uncertain.
