Henry Cavill Is Out as Superman in DC Movies

Irene MckinneySep 13, 2018

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cavill is set to end his run (fly?) as Superman on the big screen. Cavill has been in the role since 2013's Man of Steel and also appeared in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017's Justice League.

Cavill has been very vocal about his hopes to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

In December, Henry said he was looking forward to acting as Superman once again, and the studio had him under contract.

Given the revelation that Warner Bros. and Cavill were trying to fit in a cameo for Shazam! "The studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine", THR writes. For Cavill fans, he does have something new in the works: He'll star in a Netflix series called The Witcher. One project the studio will focus on developing is a Supergirl movie. We're guessing that even if Cavill keeps the cape, someone else will be hanging the "S" in their closet.

In August, the New York Post reported Affleck was headed to rehab after an intervention by his ex-wife, Jennifer Garner.

A Warner Bros. representative said in a statement to Business Insider: "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".

After today's torrent of news and rumors regarding Henry Cavill leaving the role of Superman and DC Comics movies behind, the Man of Steel himself has finally responded.

Given the rumours swirling that Ben Affleck will also no longer be returning as Batman, it does seem like the Justice League is falling apart.

Shazam! sees a release on April 5th, 2019 - long after Jason Momoa's standalone Aquaman movie dives beneath the waves and introduces viewers to the weird and wonderful world of Atlantis.

In any case, it might not be worth reading too deeply into a throwaway line in a Deadline report, especially as Cavill's exit from Metropolis hasn't been officially confirmed.
