SCOOP: Henry Cavill Now 'Highly Likely' for 'Shazam!' Sequel

The Man of Steel may finally meet the Big Red Cheese.
It was on the Lords of the Longbox YouTube channel on March 3, 2020, that I exclusively dropped Henry Cavill was in discussions to appear in Shazam 2, which is now called Shazam! Fury of the Gods. At the time, discussions circled on Cavill's Superman being under the spell of Mister Mind to fight Zachary Levi's Captain Marvel. Such an epic battle would be a cinematic echo from the comic books where the two have traded punches before.
According to inside sources, Cavill is now 'highly likely' to appear in Fury. Whether this will be a cameo or for a larger supporting role remains to be seen. A boxing match of sorts between Superman and Shazam would certainly detonate the box office, not mention lighting the imaginations of comics fans. Superman's presence in the sequel (Levi's stunt double Ryan Hadley stood in for him in the first movie) would certainly generate sparks for Fury.
