Henry Cavill won’t be playing Superman again in the DC movies

12 September 2018, 06:54 | Myron Mathis

According to Deadline, the studio is eyeing a "Supergirl" movie thanks to the success of the CW series of the same name. Henry Cavill is a talented actor, but he's a bit too old to play Superbaby (I have a sinking fear that that is an actual thing somewhere in a Superman comic).

Warner Bros.is going to need a new Superman, because The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Henry Cavill has stepped down from the role after negotiations with the studio fell through. The storyline would feature Kal-El as an infant so Cavill wouldn't be necessary. That movie would likely not have included Henry Cavill, even if Cavill had not exited.

Justice League ended its theatrical run with a worldwide box office total of $657,924,295, meaning it stands as the lowest grossing film of the DC Extended Universe. Instead, the studio will shift its attention towards the Supergirl movie. Cavill campaigned hard for the role originally and is a massive Superman fan.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cavill is set to end his run (fly?) as Superman on the big screen. I was actually looking forward to seeing if he could do something with a happier Superman, but now it sounds like we'll never know.

Henry first played Superman in 2013's Man of Steel, before the 2016 follow-up Batman v. Superman alongside Ben Affleck as Batman and last year's Justice League.

Minutes after news broke that Cavill (Mission: Impossible - Fallout) would no longer be playing the cinematic Man of Steel, folks on social media voiced their support for the actor's interpretation of the superhero as well as their opinion that the DCEU is caput.
