HENRY CAVILL's Agent, WARNER BROS. Respond to SUPERMAN Rumors

HENRY CAVILL's Agent, WARNER BROS. Respond to SUPERMAN Rumors”

Henry Cavill is reportedly no longer set to be part of the DC Comics cinematic universe, stepping down as Superman after talks fell through with Warner Bros.

Warner Bros. has no current plans for another "Superman" film starring Henry Cavill, a person familiar with the studio's plans said today.

Though "the cape is still in his closet", Cavill's role in the DCEU could still be non-existent for the foreseeable future, aligning with the original report from The Hollywood Reporter detailing contract negotiations breaking down over a Shazam! cameo.

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

With Warner Bros. rumoured to be focusing on a Supergirl movie ahead of any further sequels or possible reboot of the Superman franchise, Cavill could be out on his ear.

It's not exactly a forthcoming response, but it's definitely something that's likely to catch the attention of Warner Bros. executives as they attempt to navigate the future of their superhero movie slate. Cavill was 30 when Man of Steel hit theaters, and Brandon Routh was 27 when Superman Returns was released.

Cavill is the third actor to prominently play DC's live-action Superman on the big screen since Christopher Reeve reinvigorated the role in the '70s.

The news may come as a surprise to some as earlier this year, Henry revealed he already had a storyline in mind for "Man of Steel 2" and had already held conversations with people at DC about a follow-up movie.

Cavill appeared in "Mission: Impossible - Fallout" this summer and was recently cast in a Netflix adaptation of "The Witcher" book series.

We've reached out to Warner Bros. for a response to the report, and will update this post if we hear more.
