Henry Cavill to stop playing Superman, reports suggest

12 September, 2018, 18:56 | Author: Irvin Gilbert

It appears to be a period of change in Henry Cavill's career.

Warner Bros.is going to need a new Superman, because The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Henry Cavill has stepped down from the role after negotiations with the studio fell through.

According to multiple reports, the star has parted ways with Warner Bros. and will not be featured as the Man of Steel in any upcoming movie ventures.

The eight-episode adaptation of the best-selling medieval fantasy book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski centre on Cavill's character Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a "Witcher".

Florence strengthens 'rapidly,' now powerful Category 4 hurricane
AccuWeather meteorologist Brett Rossi said the ground in North and SC and Virginia is already saturated from recent rains. Maximum sustained winds were nearly 85 miles per hour Monday morning, the hurricane center said.

This is the latest blow to the troubled attempts to establish the Justice League movies in their own right, let alone as a credible box office rival to the Avengers franchise.

It's easy to see why Superman fans might be shellshocked, as Cavill was the man that helped kick off DC's cinematic universe back in 2013. If Cavill is out, it looks like the two founding pillars of Warner Bros' DCEU might be leaving crimefighting behind.

There are no plans for a third Superman film for several years, and it is now thought that Warners are shifting their strategy and focusing on standalone movies, including an upcoming Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. Ben Affleck already left Batman so he's not even the first to abandon ship, but this one stings a bit more for DC. "This effectively removes an actor of Cavill's age from the storyline's equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore".
