Henry Cavill out as Superman? Actor not now planned for more films

Share

The British actor has played the caped crusader for DC since the studio kicked off its lacklustre attempts at cinematic superhero domination with 2013's Man of Steel.

"This effectively removes an actor of Cavill's age from the storyline's equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore", explained the report.

THR's Tatiana Siegel who broke the news about Cavill's departure said, "As for who broke up with whom, Warner Bros. was the one who chose to move on from Henry Cavill".

A statement from Warner Bros. tried to play down any final decisions made about Cavill's future as the superhero. When the company tried to get him to appear as Superman in their upcoming feature film, Shazam!, Cavill was already co-starring in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

This report comes from Deadline, who claims that Warner Bros.is now set on making a Supergirl movie as the immediate replacement for Superman after Losing Henry Cavill as the man of steel.

Our only guess is that Cavill and his team are trying hard to imply the rumours - which were kicked off on Wednesday morning by a Hollywood Reporter article based on a studio source - remain exactly that: rumours. It is said that a scheduling conflict lead to the axing of the Shazam! deal - a notion well supported by the fact that Cavill recently signed on to do a Netflix series titled The Witcher.

Cavill and Warner Bros. are yet to respond to the report.

It's worth noting that other DC comics heroes that shared a screen with Cavill in the critically panned "Justice League" will continue with their characters.

THR reports that the studio is looking to focus on Superman's cousin, Supergirl.

The insider continued, "As such, Cavill will join Ben Affleck, who isn't expected to reprise his role for director Matt Reeves' forthcoming Batman stand-alone film, as a hero on the way out".

Shazam! sees a release on April 5th, 2019 - long after Jason Momoa's standalone Aquaman movie dives beneath the waves and introduces viewers to the weird and wonderful world of Atlantis.
