Henry Cavill quits Superman, leaves DCEU

Henry Cavill is a talented actor, but he's a bit too old to play Superbaby (I have a sinking fear that that is an actual thing somewhere in a Superman comic).

Henry Cavill won't be playing Superman in the current DC Extended Universe movies anymore, according to reports.

Furthermore, Warners isn't likely to make a solo Superman film for at least several years, according to another source.

"That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine".

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. After contract talks between Cavill's WME reps and Warners broke down, talks eventually spiraled into Cavill leaving the role for good.

Interestingly, the phone is likely to stick with a single camera shooter on the back, similar to the Pixel 2 XL. The leaks continued when the Pixel 3 XL was spotted on Toronto's rail system, not once but twice.

Scheduling conflicts caused him to turn down the Shazam! cameo - although it is thought that decision came before his commitment to Netflix - but now other talks have also fallen through.

The news comes after Cavill's agent had also teased a Superman cameo in the Shazam! movie but that recently fell through.

So with that said, if all holds, it looks like Cavill is following Ben Affleck into the sunset in terms of their DC tenures.

There is also the issue of the direction of the DC Universe. "There's a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn't work". WB is reportedly hitting reset and seeking a different path for their Marvel competitor.
