Henry Cavill Out as Superman Amid Warner Bros.' DC Universe Shake-Up

  • Henry Cavill, who has played Superman in three films, is parting ways with Warner Bros., sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Though neither side is confirming, the British actor, who first donned the blue suit for 2013's Man of Steel, and then starred in 2016's Batman v. Superman and last year's Justice League, is said to be hanging up the red cape.

    Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible — Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and will bow April 5. But contract talks between Cavill's WME reps and Warners broke down, and the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances.

    That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. 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.



Great. Now he can play Bond, which (based on Man from UNCLE) is a better role for him.

Beyond that, it looks like WB/DC is shitting the bed with everything but WW yet again.

I think he was fine as Superman. Trying to make the character a god and Batman doesn't work though imho. The one movie where Clark lets Pa Kent get sucked up by a tornado was just wrong.

Fair play!

He wasn't a bad Superman but I think he'd be better as Bond.

I liked him as Superman. I think he would make a good Bond. They'll probably cast Idris Elba as Bond.
