  • REPORT Henry Cavill is Out as Superman in the DCEU

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the split between Cavill and Warner Bros. came about following numerous conflicts that arose as a result of scheduling and contract negotiations.

Empire has contacted Warner Bros for comment.

There were talks to have Cavill appear for a Superman cameo in Shazam!

Also, one must consider the current slate of planned DCEU films at the studio. Given the DC timeline, Superman would be a baby at the time of that film. "There's a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn't work".

THR reports that the studio is looking to focus on Superman's cousin, Supergirl. Whenever he was on-screen in the suit, it felt like this is the Superman we've needed for years, especially after the mess that was Superman Return and Brandon Routh.

Kensington Palace shared that the Royals were invited to come and tour New Zealand and Australia by their respective governments. The Duke and Duchess will also attend the Invictus Games Sydney during their tour, which takes place between 20 and 27 October.

Cavill's tenure as the Big Blue Boy Scout hasn't exactly been a success, with his three movies underachieving both critically and commercially, and he hasn't had the chance to play a "true" version of the character.

Cavill joins Ben Affleck on the list of stars from recent DC Superhero films to be sidelined after lackluster performances by the films in the box office. While the Flash's solo movie is reportedly going into production in the spring, it's not out of the question that Aquaman's reception could affect that project's status.

The validity of these reasons for Cavill to leave ranges widely, and you get the feeling if he had really wanted to stay they would have gotten something done.

According to the original DC Comics, Supergirl would be a teen in her origin story meaning at that time, Superman (aka Kal-El) would only be an infant. It's fitting, then, that Cavill's exit also seems to tie into a creative shift for the overall series. He's just coming off an electric performance in the summertime smash hit, Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

Cavill also recently was cast in the lead role for Netflix's The Witcher, which made his availability for cameo appearances more hard.
