At the end of last year, Henry Cavill dressed up as Superman and faced off against the giants in a post-credits confrontation.

Zack Snyder's three DC films will be made a comeback before the deadline on April 28, 29 and 30. The corresponding social media posts include a brief introduction to the main antagonist Darkseid (comparable to Thano from the Marvel Cinematic Universe) and Henry Cavill as Superman.
PC games enthusiasts are also familiar with the subject.

Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League may be seen again for a short time in the cinema. Whether this will be a good ending to the "old DCUE" or a wonderful opportunity for Henry Cavill to play Superman on the big screen.
