Henry Cavill Will Reportedly No Longer Play SUPERMAN In Warner Bros.' DC Movie Universe

Well... shit. Fans have been wondering whether Ben Affleck would return as Batman for a long time, but THR has now dropped the bombshell that Henry Cavill will likely not reprise the role of Superman...

According to THR, Henry Cavill will not be returning to play Superman in Warner Bros.' DC Films Universe.

Though neither side has confined this, the trade reports that "talks broke down for a cameo in 'Shazam!' due to scheduling conflicts, and the door is now closing on other potential appearances for the actor."

In addition, sources claim that the studio has decided to shift focus to the planned Supergirl movie, and don't intend to put another solo Man of Steel project into production for several years.

Ultimately, this all seems to stem from WB's decision to attempt a soft reboot of the current incarnation of the DCEU, as it's come to be known. Though the likes of Jason Momoa, Ezra Miller and Gal Gadot are still on board, it looks like Ben Affleck, and now Cavill, have hung up their capes for good.

Some saw this coming after Cavill signed on to star in Netflix's The Witcher - although this report indicates that the Mission: Impossible - Fallout actor only committed to that project after Warners announced their change in strategy.

Whatever the reason, this will not go down well with fans. Despite many taking issue with the iconic DC hero's characterization in Man of Steel and Batman V Superman, most would agree that Cavill has done a fine job in the role.
