Regarding the possibility of a Man of Steel 2, Henry Cavill did recently state he wants to do it.

“I’m having a lot of conversations, behind-the-scenes, with certain people, and we will hopefully be having conversations with other people who are also behind-the-scenes to make things start happening,” Cavill said. “It is very much in my desire to do a Man of Steel 2, a direct sequel to Man of Steel, and there is a whole bunch of Superman story that I want to tell. There is a whole style of Superman’s character that I’m very keen to tell, and I’m looking forward to the opportunity.”

Henry Cavill is also speculated for a cameo role in the upcoming Shazam! movie as his manager, Dany Garcia, is actually a producer on the movie along with her former husband, Dwayne Johnson.

Cavill also recently said regardless if his contract with DC is up, he still wants more Superman.

“Honestly, there is a possibility there. I forget if I’m still supposed to do one more,” Cavill said. “Regardless of that or not, there is a lot of story that I would love to tell, and if that stuff starts to happen, and with exciting filmmakers who I have close relationships with, then regardless if I have one more or not, I’m doing it because I want to tell more of the Superman story.”
