Henry Cavill Leaves Superman
Henry Cavill Might Be Done Playing Superman
Henry Cavill is set to hand his Superman cape over to a new actor. Following his appearances as Superman inMan of Steel,Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice,andJustice League, Cavill was reportedly going to appear in DC’s upcomingShazam!, but after “talks broke down,” it appears that Cavill is now done playing the iconic superhero, according toThe Hollywood Reporter.
Warner Bros. had hoped to have Cavill appear as Superman inShazam!, but due to “scheduling conflicts,” the appearance didn’t work out, and now “the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances,” according to the report. On top of that, Warners reportedly wants to focus more on aSupergirlfilm, and since they aren’t “likely to make a soloSupermanfilm for at least several years,” Cavill is on the way out as the hero.
“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,” a Warner Bros. spokesperson said in a statement after the Hollywood Reporter story was published.
A recent report fromVarietyechoes those original reports. PerVariety: “The studio is not currently moving forward with Batman and Superman movies featuring Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, respectively. It is expected to recast the Dark Knight with a different actor for director Matt Reeves’ upcoming Batman solo outing.”
Cavill recently signed on to star as the lead inThe Witcherseries for Netflix, but that decision reportedly came after the issues with theShazam!cameo appearance.Deadlinepicked up on theTHRreport and added that Warner Bros. has been trying to figure out a “different direction” for the Superman franchise, and that they were “considering casting Michael B. Jordan in the role down the road.”
Jordan is coming off of a critically-acclaimed appearance inBlack Pantheras the villain Erik Killmonger, and he’ll be seen next inCreed IIalongside Sylvester Stallone, Dolph Lundgren, and Florian Munteanu
If Cavill does stop playing Superman, he might not be the only iconic character getting a makeover. BothDeadlineandThe Hollywood Reporterhave reported that Ben Affleck might be replaced as Batman with a younger actor for Matt Reeves’Batmanfilm.
