Henry Cavill will longer play Superman due to contract negotiations with Warner Bros. falling apart.
Scheduling conflicts are apparently Henry Cavill’s kryptonite.
Henry Cavill is hanging up his cape and giving up the role of man of steel, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The decision reportedly came after contract negotiations with Warner Bros. fell apart.
Henry was in talks to make a cameo as Superman in the upcoming Shazam! Movie, set for an April 2019 release. But after scheduling conflicts got in the way of that appearance, it was ultimately decided that Henry will no longer be the DC Cinematic Universe’s Superman.
But the decision probably wasn’t just because of contract negotiations breaking down. According to one insider, the studio is currently focusing on doing a Supergirl origin story starring a teen Supergirl, which would call for a younger actor playing Superman. The source explained QUOTE, “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors.”
Henry first appeared as Superman in the 2013 film, Man of Steel, and reprised the role in 2016’s ‘Batman v. Superman’, and again in last year’s ‘Justice League.’ As far as another standalone Superman movie goes, Warner Bros. probably wouldn’t start production on that for another few years, which also supports the idea that the company is looking to reboot the character with a younger actor.
There have also been rumors that Warners is trying to steer their entire DC universe in a new direction, and essentially hit the “reset” button on the whole brand. Except for Wonder Woman, of course — because as we all know, she’s flawless and untouchable.
So how are we gonna get our Henry fix now that he’s no longer Superman? Don’t worry, because it was recently announced that the British actor will play the lead in the upcoming Netflix series, ‘The Witcher’. There’s no official word on when the show will be released, but until then we’ll just have to rewatch Henry as Superman in the three films he graced us with. Let’s just say you won’t hear us complaining about that.
So now I wanna hear from you guys — are you shocked that Henry will no longer play Superman, or do you think it’s smart for the studio to reboot the character with a younger actor? And who do you want to see don that red cape next? Sound off with all your thoughts in the comments below!
