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

The Hollywood Reporter released a report last night that Henry Cavill is reportedly hanging his cape as Superman.

Meanwhile, rumours also suggest Ben Affleck, who is now in rehab for alcohol abuse, will not return as Superman's DC Comics sidekick, Batman, in a stand-alone film, titled The Batman. With that in mind, popular artist BossLogic put together a piece depicting what Jordan could look like as Superman, and the result is pretty stunning. But a cryptic new Instagram video from the (former?) Man of Steel himself may have confirmed that this is not the case. He's very protective of the character, is a fan of the comic books, and respects the history and signifigance of the Man of Steel.

It's generally accepted that where there's smoke there's fire... Or worse, is he using the media circus as a negotiating tactic against Warner Bros.?

Kinda weird, but if you think about it, why didn't he use the Superman theme?

Affleck, who played the Caped Crusader in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, was initially pegged to direct the film and star.




There are also reports that Warner Bros isn't planning to make a standalone Superman film for several years; instead, the studio will be focusing on a recently announced Supergirl film as the studio attempts to refocus its struggling superhero franchise. A proposed Superman cameo in the studio's upcoming "Shazam" feature will apparently not happen after contract talks between the actor's agents and Warner Bros.

Have something to add to the story?

But just because the clues are there, it doesn't necessarily mean that they only have one possible conclusion. It's time Warner Bros. figures out how to do right by the character again.

While the relationship is still in place, the sad fact is "no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films". It's an interesting movie in many ways, playing up the difficulties of Kal-El's life growing up, but Snyder chose to take Superman into the "dark and gritty" realm that has since become the trademark of the DCEU.
