Henry Cavill's Superman is leaving the DC Universe

As movie and comic fans react to news that Justice League actor Henry Cavill may not be returning as Superman in the DCEU, his manager has released a small statement that raises plenty of questions about previous reports. The studio was apparently not looking to make a solo Superman film in the immediate future - instead looking towards a Supergirl origin story.

Cavill made his debut as Superhero in the 2013 movie "Man of Steel", then returned for DC films "Batman v Superman" in 2016 and "Justice League" in 2017. Cavill reportedly stepped down from the role that he has played in several Worlds of DC films after negotiations with the studio fell through. I'm highly suspect that Warner Bros. would drop him from Superman just after they were trying to get him into one of their three upcoming films that are coming out within the next year.

As such, speculation has begun regarding who will replace Cavill as Superman when the time comes down the road.

There were talks to have Cavill appear for a Superman cameo in Shazam! Rather than belong to a shared universe similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe, future films are likely to focus on standalone stories, similar to "Wonder Woman", which only briefly alluded to a connection to a larger film universe.

According to Deadline, Warner Bros.is now more focused on getting a Supergirl movie into production, while they've also got Aquaman and a Wonder Woman sequel in the works.

Michael B Jordan's name has been at the top of many lists, according to Deadline, who reported movie studio Warner Bros.

Cavill also recently was cast in the lead role for Netflix's The Witcher, which made his availability for cameo appearances more hard. Patty Jenkins' Wonder Woman 1984 is due out in November 2019.

How do you find a hotter Superman than Henry Cavill?

It was announced last week that Henry has been cast in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher as Geralt of Rivia, the main character in the popular fantasy universe that's previously been adapted into a hit video game franchise.

After THR's report, The Wrap reporter Umberto Gonzalez also put out a piece confirming the news.
