Henry Cavill Will No Longer Be DC Universe's Superman

Henry Cavill Will No Longer Be DC Universe's Superman

Warner Bros. had reportedly hoped to have Cavill make a cameo appearance in the 2019 superhero flick "Shazam!" to no avail. The original story follows below.

In a statement to THR, Warner Bros. said: "While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we've always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged".

Instead, Warner Bros.is shifting its attention to developing a Supergirl movie. Other sources say Warner is looking to re-invent the DC installments and looking for new talent to go with this transformation.

It's up, up, and away from Superman for the actor Henry Cavill.

However, this isn't a very well-worn idea just yet, as he admitted he still hasn't spoken to anyone in any corner office at Warner Bros. about it. They've tossed around future possible actors for Superman, including Michael B. Jordan (so hot right now), but nothing serious.

The news also comes as reports say DC will shift focus to a Supergirl origin movie, which would have Superman, or Kal-El, as an infant in the new timeline.

It is a little bit unfortunate, as while Cavill wasn't given great Superman movies to be in, he was a pretty great Superman independent of the stories his version of the character had been dropped in.

In August, the New York Post reported Affleck was headed to rehab after an intervention by his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.

It looks like the DC Extended Universe is losing its current movie Man of Steel, Henry Cavill. Her Justice League co-stars Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller have also made the cut, with the Aquaman solo movie hitting theatres this December, and Miller's Flash movie set to shoot in 2019.

Michael B Jordan is already joint favourite at 3/1 with Colin O'Donogue. Alongside this, Cavill also recently announced he would be playing the role of Geralt of Riva in the Netflix adaptation of The Witcher series, meaning that the actor's schedule would be even tighter than before.

However, neither WB nor Cavill's reps have confirmed Cavill's exit.
