Henry Cavill Reportedly Quits Superman Role

Henry Cavill Reportedly Quits Superman Role

"Whether the Man of Steel gets melted down and rebooted or replaced in the current Universe, there are surely going to be some big names jostling for the role", said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly.

After reports that Warner Bros. and Superman actor Henry Cavill have parted ways, Warner Bros. released a statement regarding their relationship with Cavill. The news comes after Warner Bros reportedly attempted to secure Cavill for upcoming superhero movie Shazam! but during negotiations, both camps were faced with conflicts prompting talks to be shut down.

Meanwhile, Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros.' primary DC strategy involves a "Supergirl" movie, focusing on the Kryptonian character who lands on Earth when she's a teenager, which would require a substantially younger Superman than the 35-year-old Cavill. Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 is due out in November 2019.

We've reached out to Warner Bros. for a response to the report, and will update this post if we hear more.

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's tenure as Superman has never run smoothly.

It's up, up, and away from Superman for actor Henry Cavill. The studio was apparently not looking to make a solo Superman film in the immediate future - instead looking towards a Supergirl origin story. He reprised the role alongside Ben Affleck's Batman and Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and "Justice League". It's said to be part of a larger move aimed at fixing WB's flagging DC Extended Universe (DCEU). Then, just last week, we learned - though it's still not technically confirmed - that he's set to star in a Netflix adaptation of the popular video game and book series, The Witcher.

Cavill had a busy summer, co-starring with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.
