Henry Cavill to drop his role as Superman

The current Man Of Steel, Henry Cavill, will have to hang his red cape.

According to Deadline, Henry will no longer be playing Superman in the Warner Bros./Time Warner Inc.’s DC Films franchise. A statement released by DC Universe to this effect reads:

Backstage with the Great David Tenn...
Backstage with the Great David Tennant!

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.”

Cavill first played the role of Superman in 2011, and to date, he has appeared in three DC movies: Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League.

Why did DC cut the plug on Henry?

According to Forbes, Henry was reportedly demanding a high amount of money to play the role and also, negotiations for Cavill to appear in a cameo in the upcoming connected feature Shazam! broke down due to scheduling conflicts.

With the next Supergirl solo movie in view, the world might not need a Superman at this junction. The origin film for the teenage Supergirl prevents Cavill’s participation since the movie will depict Superman as an infant.
