Henry Cavill's Superman is leaving the DC Universe

Sheri SchwartzSep 13, 2018

The move has not been confirmed by Cavill or the film studio, but THR reports contract negotiations between Cavill and Warner Bros. were unsuccessful. It was released after a Hollywood Reporter article said Cavill's tenure as the Man of Steel appeared to be ending.

Following Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, Cavill was in talks to cameo in the upcoming Shazam!

While a sequel solo movie for Superman has always been rumoured, THR's report suggests that a future Superman film would not enter production for "at least several years" while the studio focuses on Supergirl.

One source told THR that Warner Bros. has recognised the current DC universe hasn't connected, and is attempting to reset it. Additionally, WB says they weren't planning on releasing another Superman film for years to come. The storyboard appears to be from Justice League, though the quote is from Man of Steel in which Superman has surrended to the United States government and is asked about his iconic symbol by Lois Lane. As a result, Superman appearances in other films are no longer an option. In addition to the Cavill news, we've had that Michael B. Jordan report, and now, we have news regarding a now-defunct Shazam! cameo.

The studio is reportedly now honing in on a movie centering on Supergirl as a teenager.

While playing The Blue Danube Waltz, but with dogs barking, Cavill slowly rises a Superman action figure, looking somber while wearing his Krypton Lifting Team shirt. Her Justice League co-stars Jason Momoa and Ezra Miller have also made the cut, with the Aquaman solo movie hitting theatres this December, and Miller's Flash movie set to shoot in 2019.

In a shocking development, Henry Cavill reportedly is no longer part of DC cinematic universe as Superman.

Henry Cavill announced last week that he is taking the high-profile lead in a new Netflix show based on the cult Witcher books and computer games. It's fitting, then, that Cavill's exit also seems to tie into a creative shift for the overall series.
