After unconfirmed reports indicated that Henry Cavill was in talks to reprise his role as DC Extended Universe’s Superman in an upcoming feature film, bookies at the gambling website Bovada have released their odds-on pick for where the actor could pop up.
So what do these sportbookies say is the best bet? It’s an even split between the announced sequels to Aquaman and Shazam!
According to reports about the possibility of Cavill’s return, he isn’t expected to appear in Matt Reeves’ The Batman or any sort of Man of Steel sequel or Superman standalone film, but cites Shazam! 2 and Aquaman 2, along with Black Adam, as potential landing spots.
Keep in mind, DC wanted Cavill to reprise his role as Superman in the original Shazam!, however unspecified issues led to a stunt double donning Cavill’s Justice League era suit to have a cameo from the neck-down in the movie’s final moments.
Here’s Bovada’s odds in full – including on some films not even confirmed:
– Aquaman 2: Even
– Shazam! 2: Even
– Black Adam: +550
– Justice League 2: +800
– Man of Steel 2: +1000
– Wonder Woman 1984: +2000
