No decision on Henry Cavill's future as Superman: Studio

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

It's not Kryptonite that will end Henry Cavill's run as Warner Bros.' grimdark Superman; it's a studio pivot.

Over the past five years, Cavill has starred three times as the character, first debuting in 2013's Man of Steel before returning as Clark Kent in 2016's superhero showdown Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for Henry and Warner Bros for comment. The mangled corpse of one Henry Cavill has yet to even be buried in the world of the DCEU and rumors are already abound about one specific Hollywood golden boy taking on the mantle.

There are no plans for a third Superman film for several years, and it is now thought that Warners are shifting their strategy and focusing on standalone movies, including an upcoming Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. Other films on the horizon are the upcoming "Shazam!" with Zachary Levi, "Wonder Woman 1984", due out in November 2019, and Ezra Miller in a stand-alone movie for the Flash.


Cavill recently spoke to Yahoo Movies UK about his dreams for a Man of Steel sequel, saying that he hoped the filmmakers would look to Brian Azzarello's For Tomorrow comic title for inspiration.

Cavill is the third actor to prominently play DC's live-action Superman on the big screen since Christopher Reeve reinvigorated the role in the '70s. 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. None of Aquaman's fellow "Justice League" members, including Cavill and Affleck, is mentioned in the credits.

If the reports are true Cavill will join Ben Affleck, who sources say will not be reprising his role as The Dark Knight in the forthcoming Batman solo film.
