Michael B. Jordan In The Running To Replace Henry Cavill As Superman

  • REPORT Henry Cavill is Out as Superman in the DCEU

British actor Henry Cavill, better known as Superman, has chose to part ways with Warner Bros, reported The Hollywood Reporter.

Though the reports have not been confirmed, Warner Bros. released a statement addressing the news that was nearly as cryptic as Cavill's response.

WB has shifted focus to Supergirl, something that will be an origin story with a teenage superhero - something that will not require Cavill at his age to play Superman, as Kal-El would be an infant at this time.

It's unlikely that Warner will be producing a new solo Superman film for several years, sources told The Hollywood Reporter. After the news broke, WB issues a statement emphasizing their "great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill", and Cavill's agent Dany Garcia posted a tweet encouraging fans, "Be peaceful, the cape is still in his closet". Another report on Deadline suggests the studio is considering Black Panther and Creed star Michael B Jordan as the next Superman.

Of course, this isn't reality yet, and Warner Bros.is focusing on the announced "Supergirl" movie (that will be unrelated to The CW's series). To date, the only universally successful DC-pegged release was 2017's Wonder Woman, which landed both with critics and at the box office. In addition to the Cavill news, we've had that Michael B. Jordan report, and now, we have news regarding a now-defunct Shazam! cameo. The Flash solo film is expected to start shooting next year too, but following the tepid response to The Justice League it's unclear yet what Warner has in store for its overarching universe.

Yesterday it was reported that the actor was on the way out at DC and Warner Bros, amidst reports of his new high-profile roles and the disappointing performance of Justice League and Batman Vs Superman.

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.

Warner Bros.is already experimenting with DC movies that fall outside the usual established DCEU continuity. If Cavill is out, it looks like the two founding pillars of Warner Bros' DCEU might be leaving crimefighting behind. The actor last week revealed that he had been cast as the main character, Geralt of Rivia, in Netflix's upcoming adaptation of the Witcher novels.
