Henry Cavill’s Future as Superman Is Cloudy, Warner Bros. Focusing on Supergirl

And amid his exit, Warner Bros.is looking to shake up its DC film universe - again.

"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".

Henry Cavill's future as Superman in the DC Extended Universe is cloudy as Warner Bros., the studio behind the comic book franchise, is holding off on developing new films centering on the Man of Steel with or without the British actor.

Henry has played Superman in 2013′s Man of Steel, 2016′s Batman v. Superman and 2017′s Justice League.




The world of DC superheroes will reportedly have to get along without Henry Cavill's Superman. While Gal Gadot is returning as Diana Prince in Wonder Woman 1984 and Ezra Miller is expected to continue his role as The Flash in a solo film shooting next year, rumours have long swirled around Ben Affleck not returning as Bruce Wayne. 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. If Cavill is out, it looks like the two founding pillars of Warner Bros' DCEU might be leaving crimefighting behind.

With its Supergirl plans, WB is said to be keen to shelve the character of Superman for a few years before a Bond style reboot with a new leading man.

A representative for Henry has been contacted by MailOnline for comment.
