REPORT: Henry Cavill is out as Superman in the DCEU!
After dying and being resurrected onscreen in the DCEU, it appears that Henry Cavillís Superman is dead again at Warner Bros. Pictures. The Hollywood Reporter brings the sad word that Cavill is out after negotiations for a cameo in Aprilís Shazam! broke down due to scheduling conflicts, which happened prior to his commitment to the Netflix series The Witcher. Warners has decided to part ways the British actor, who has played the role of Kal-El in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

Neither the studio nor Cavill has made an official statement yet, but according to the report the studio is shifting focus to a Supergirl movie, which will not require Superman. There are also no plans for a solo Superman film until years down the road. Persistent rumors state that Batman actor Ben Affleck is also on the outs with the studio, and that he will not appear in Matt Reevesí upcoming The Batman. Fellow Justice Leaguers Gal Gadot (Wonder Woman 1984), Jason Momoa (Aquaman) and Ezra Miller (upcoming The Flash movie) are still reportedly onboard for future installments. Rumors had posited that Cavillís Superman was to potentially be a lynchpin to the DCEU the same way Samuel L. Jacksonís Nick Fury was for Marvel Studios, although that idea may now be scrapped. Itís also possible that a Shazam! cameo will act as a launching pad for the replacement Superman actor.

ďSuperman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors,Ē says an unnamed studio insider. ďThereís a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didnít work.Ē

Stay tuned to for more as this story develops!
