Does Warner Bros. Already Have A New Superman Actor In Mind?

Henry Cavill

Based on all the reports that have been coming out from various folks since that initial report from THR this morning, it looks like news of Henry Cavill leaving the DCEU is something that lots of trades have been sitting on for a bit.

Justice League ended its theatrical run with a worldwide box office total of $657,924,295, meaning it stands as the lowest grossing film of the DC Extended Universe. Whoa! THR says that Warner Bros "had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible - Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!".

This report comes from Deadline, who claims that Warner now set on making a Supergirl movie as the immediate replacement for Superman after Losing Henry Cavill as the man of steel. Also, Affleck has had personal issues he's been dealing with.

Empire has contacted Warner Bros for comment. And Deadline does slips in a mention that there have been whispers that Warner Bros. might take a turn with any future Superman film, and has reportedly floated the idea of having Michael B. Jordan in the role.

While a sequel solo movie for Superman has always been rumoured, THR's report suggests that a future Superman film would not enter production for "at least several years" while the studio focuses on Supergirl. Not so fast. Earlier today, a report claimed that the Man of Steel and Batman v. Superman star was hanging up the cape as Superman, but if confusing social media posts are to be believed, the actor is still very much on Team Supes.

Reports of Cavill's departure came with word that they failed to negotiate a cameo role in Shazam!

Has Henry Cavill been dropped as Superman?

Citing unnamed sources, The Hollywood Reporter said on Wednesday that Cavill would not play Superman in future films.

Those were followed up with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017), all featuring Cavill and all box-office blunders relative to rival studio Marvel's string of blockbusters. Rumors about such a move swirled last week when it was announced that Cavill would be starring in Netflix's video-game adaptation The Witcher, and it does indeed appear that scheduling conflicts may have been the initial root of the problem. Meanwhile, another insider said the studio is looking to "reset" the DC universe. A solo Batman movie is also in development which may or may not star Ben Affleck back in the title role.
