It appears Warner Bros. has lost its Superman. The british actor that starred in Man of Steel, Batman VS Superman and Justice League is making his way out of the franchise.
Due to a cameo that was supposed to happen in Shazam! but was not agreed by Henry Cavill’s agents, Warner Bros. has cancelled the actor of the most important character in their shared universe with a snap of fingers.
The deceptively schizophrenic executives down at Warner have suddenly decided to shift their focus to an upcoming Supergirl film, which would allegedly eliminate the need for a grown up Superman, even though that is nothing like in the comics, which I doubt they’ve ever read anyway.
“There’s a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn’t work,” says the studio insider. Another source says Warners is trying to hit a “reset” button with the DC universe, steering its ship slowly into another direction.

After losing Ben Affleck on Matt Reeves’ Batman film and now Henry Cavill’s Superman, the next titles for DC’s film division are Gal Gadot in Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman 1984, Shazam! featuring Zachary Levy and a somewhat CG heavy Jason Momoa’s Aquaman on his own film.
These continuous infinite blunders are a disrespect to DC fans everywhere, those who still hope to see an accurate representation of the modern versions of their favorite heroes.
Meanwhile, Henry Cavill is just fine, after signing up to be titular character in Netflix’s The Witcher.
