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

Henry Cavill is to be dropped as Superman, after failing to agree terms to make an appearance in the upcoming Shazam! film, it has been reported.

Cavill's recent announcement that he was taking the lead in potentially multiple series adaptation of The Witcher books and computer games already raised suspicions.

Henry Cavill will reportedly no longer play Superman in any Warner Bros. and DC movies.

The 35-year-old Cavill was cast in the title role of director Zack Snyder's Man of Steel, the divisive 2013 that retroactively launched the DCEU, and then returned in 2016's Batman v Superman and 2017's Justice League, none of which earned the reception, or the blockbuster status, Warner Bros. might have envisioned.

With Henry Cavill's exit as DC Films' Man of Steel, it seems DC fans will have to wait several years at least before Superman soars into theaters again. According to The Hollywood Reporter, negotiations for Cavill to appear in a cameo in the upcoming connected feature "Shazam!" broke down due to scheduling conflicts with "Mission Impossible: Fallout".

This is the latest blow to the troubled attempts to establish the Justice League movies in their own right, let alone as a credible box office rival to the Avengers franchise. " This means that Cavill and Ben Affleck are both gone, as Affleck isn't likely to return for Matt Reeves' The Batman". "There's a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn't work". Another source claims that the Netflix role came after the issues with WB, suggesting a change in direction for the studio.

Neither representatives for Cavill nor Warner Bros. immediately responded to Fox News' request for comment.

According to the original DC Comics, Supergirl would be a teen in her origin story meaning at that time, Superman (aka Kal-El) would only be an infant.
