Henry Cavill Exits As DCEU's Superman

An insider told HR earlier "There's a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn't work", which caused a sort of "reset" on the DC universe as a whole production-wise. Warners has made a decision to part ways the British actor, who has played the role of Kal-El in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

"Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible - Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and will bow April 5". The studio was apparently not looking to make a solo Superman film in the immediate future - instead looking towards a Supergirl origin story. "This effectively removes an actor of Cavill's age from the storyline's equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore".

Attempts to bring Cavill into Shazam! also broke down due to schedule conflicts. Cavill appears next in the Netflix adaptation of "The Witcher".

Florence to bring life-threatening storm surge
Trump was being briefed by the head of the Federal Emergency Management Agency in the Oval Office on Tuesday. The storm is now about 950 miles from the Carolina coast line, but moving in that direction at about 15 mph.

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. While there had been rumblings of a Man of Steel sequel, no concrete developments had ever emerged.

The news comes months after reports that Ben Affleck is making his way out of the DC Universe.
