It was originally planned that Cavill would on set for the final scene, where Freddy Freeman is surprised at school by The Man of Steel, but due to scheduling conflicts, this cameo never materialised.
Sandberg also previously revealed what the original scene was supposed to be. "He sat down at the table. They had a brief chat. There was a joke about [sort of] school food and then it ended with Freddy just leaning into him, and it going like, 'I have so many questions,' and then it cut out."
