Henry Cavill Exits Superman Role As Warner Bros. Shakes Up DC Universe

Henry Cavill Exits Superman Role As Warner Bros. Shakes Up DC Universe”

It's been reported that British actor Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman as Warners is set to focus on getting Supergirl on the big screen. Among the plans is a solo Supergirl movie rather than another Superman. Henry Cavill is a talented actor, but he's a bit too old to play Superbaby (I have a sinking fear that that is an actual thing somewhere in a Superman comic). The storyline would feature Kal-El as an infant so Cavill wouldn't be necessary.

Prior to Cavill's exit, there had been rumors that DC Films was talking to directors, including Matthew Vaughn, about making a Man of Steel sequel.

"Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors", a studio source told The Hollywood Reporter.

The latest report also claims that WB is concentrating on the planned Supegirl movie, at the expense of Superman himself. " This means that Cavill and Ben Affleck are both gone, as Affleck isn't likely to return for Matt Reeves' The Batman". I was actually looking forward to seeing if he could do something with a happier Superman, but now it sounds like we'll never know.

The 35-year-old Cavill was cast in the title role of director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, the divisive 2013 that retroactively launched the DCEU, and then returned in 2016's Batman v Superman and 2017's Justice League, none of which earned the reception, or the blockbuster status, Warner Bros. might have envisioned.

Ezra Miller, who starred as Flash in Justice League, is thought to still be on board for a standlone which is due to start shooting in early 2019.
