Is Henry Cavill out as Superman?

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

In the wake of reports that Cavill is done playing Superman in the DC Extended Universe comes a new, tantalizing rumor: "Black Panther" and "Creed II" star Jordan is being eyed as the next Clark Kent.

According to reports, Henry Cavill might not be reprising his role as Superman in upcoming installments. When Snyder was tasked with overseeing the entire franchise, future solo films were put on hold as titles like Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League became the focus. This seems unlikey, with many fans already thinking Warner Bros. shifted too far away from comic book canon with the recent Cavill films.

Cavill has been very vocal about his hopes to replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.

The world of DC superheroes will reportedly have to get along without Henry Cavill's Superman.

Any potential casting would be "down the road" however, as Warner Bros.is now focusing their might on a Supergirl film.

Got $1,100? Apple shows off its most expensive iPhone yet
The Smart HDR is the most hyped feature that takes multiple shots in different exposures and combines them to get the bets shot. When it comes to the optics, the XR has to make do with a single 12MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, supported by OIS.

The Irishman could face stiff competition for the part though with Michael B Jordan also thought to be in the frame for the role.

This report comes from Deadline, who claims that Warner Bros.is now set on making a Supergirl movie as the immediate replacement for Superman after Losing Henry Cavill as the man of steel.

Cavill also recently was cast in the lead role for Netflix's The Witcher, which made his availability for cameo appearances more hard.

It's unlikely that this is all a ruse to drum up interest for a new Superman movie or appearance, and is instead a failed contract negotiation finally going public. And based on DC lore, Superman would still be an infant during that timeline, so it's inevitable that Henry will be out of the picture.

The report also states Ben Affleck, who plays Batman in the DC movies, is not expected to return for an upcoming film, "The Batman", directed by Matt Reeves. He notes that Marvel had to move on to its "B or C-level characters" like Iron Man and Thor, with outstanding results. Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 is due out in November 2019.
