Henry Cavill won’t play Superman again.
Fans were shocked because Henry Cavill had previously revealed in October that he will be coming back as the Man of Steel. Henry Cavill appeared as Superman in a mid-credits sequence at the conclusion of the DC movie “Black Adam,” which also starred Dwayne Johnson.
Henry Cavill wrote on Instagram that he met with British producer Peter Safran and director James Gunn, who in October was named co-chairmen and chief executive officer of DC Studios. He wrote, “I won’t be coming back as Superman after all. “This news isn’t the simplest to share after the studio instructed me to do so back in October before they were hired, but that’s life, right? An event that takes place is the changing of the guard. I value that.
Superman “is still around,” according to Henry Cavill, despite his not taking on the role again.
He wrote, “The examples he sets for us are still there, and all he stands for still remains.” “While it may be past my turn to don the cape, what Superman stands for will never fade away. It’s been a pleasure traveling with you everyone; keep moving forward.
On Wednesday, Gunn also posted on Twitter that he and Safran “have a DC slate ready to go, which we couldn’t be more over the moon about; we’ll be able to reveal some exciting details about our first projects at the beginning of the new year.”
“Superman is one of the people on the list. The role of Superman won’t be performed by Henry Cavill because the first half of our story will concentrate on an earlier period of Superman’s existence, according to Gunn. After that, Gunn began responding to fan questions, confirming, among other things, that he has been developing a Superman movie for some time and that it would not be an origin story.
The announcement on Wednesday also follows Cavill’s departure from “The Witcher,” a Netflix series in which he starred for three seasons. In his stead will be actor Liam Hemsworth. Since being hired, Gunn and Safran have been reviewing the studio’s schedule of projects, with several of their selections recently garnering media attention. In response to rumors that the studio would not be pushing forward with a third episode of the “Wonder Woman” trilogy, director Patty Jenkins spoke out on Tuesday
