You’ll Believe A Man Can Cry: Henry Cavill Canned As SUPERMAN

Word on the street is that Warner Bros. will no longer be making films with Henry Cavill as Superman. The studio apparently wants to focus on its Supergirl movie rather than the Man Of Steel.

According to Deadline:

”The word has been out that Warner Bros. has been mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time, even considering casting Michael B. Jordan in the role down the road. But at the present moment a Supergirl movie is the studio’s priority.”

When the news broke, Warner Bros. released a statement which seems to support the claim that Cavill will be following Ben Affleck’s Batman out the backdoor of the DC Cinematic Universe:

“While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”

First thing – Michael B. Jordan – WTF?

That leaves Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa’s Aquaman as the Justice League‘s lone survivors (Ezra Miller’s Flash is still in limbo). I imagine lukewarm box office will kill them off faster than a speeding bullet.

Sad news – I liked Henry Cavill as Superman.
