Henry Cavill Will Reportedly No Longer Play Superman, Out At Warner Brothers

The New York Post reports that Affleck's exit comes on the heels of another departure from the DC universe, according to The Hollywood Reporter, which claims Henry Cavill will no longer be Superman. Cavill posted a video on his Instagram set to the tune of "The Blue Danube", which featured him holding a Superman figurine throughout the course of the short video.

And once you've done that click right over here watch another new video and be sure to hit that subscribe button! Similar to the show Supergirl, Warner Bros. will likely want to establish Supergirl as her own entity in the DCEU before actually pairing her up with Superman. After wanting to have a Superman cameo in the upcoming Shazam! film, Warner Bros. have reportedly settled on loosing Cavill in order to pursue other DC properties.

This means he may no longer appear as the iconic Superman in the DC cinematic universe.

Jessie Wade is a news writer for IGN.

"Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible - Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!".

According to The Hollywood Reporter, star Henry Cavill is being let go by DC and Warner Bros., as they have no plans for any standalone Superman movies in the next few years. We're guessing that even if Cavill keeps the cape, someone else will be hanging the "S" in their closet. Recognizable across the globe for decades, he was essentially the first superhero, but Warner Bros. hasn't been able to figure out how to successfully translate him to the big screen essentially since Superman II back in 1980!

Cavill also recently was cast in the lead role for Netflix's The Witcher, which made his availability for cameo appearances more hard.

WB isn't rushing to recast the Man of Steel at the moment.

Said the source, "Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors", says a studio source. In addition to Shazam! and a Supergirl project, there's December's Aquaman and 2019's Wonder Woman: 1984. Not only was 2017's Justice League a box office disappointment, everyone's favorite sad superhero, Ben Affleck, isn't expected to reprise his role for the upcoming stand-alone Batman film.
