Today has been a hectic news day for Warner Bros. and DC, as news broke earlier from The Hollywood Reporter that Henry Cavill, the man who has portrayed Superman on the big screen for the last 5 years, would no longer be donning the cape in the DC film universe.
According to THR, sources said that Cavill was parting ways with WB. Apparently, WB had been trying to bring Cavill in for a cameo in their upcoming film Shazam!, but talks broke down between them and Cavill’s reps due to a scheduling conflict, which I’m assuming is probably for Netflix’s adaptation of The Witcher that was recently announced. This wouldn’t be the first conflict WB and Cavill have had due to his outside projects, as shown by the infamous “Mustache-gate” debacle surrounding Justice League and Mission: Impossible – Fallout.
THR reports that the door is now closing on future appearance by Cavill as the Man of Steel, and one of the reasons for this is WB’s shift in focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. Furthermore, WB isn’t likely to make a solo Superman film for at least several years, according to another source. “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors,” says a studio source.
Not long after this report came out, one of Cavill’s reps, Dany Garcia, tweeted out the following statement:
To be honest, the statement from WB doesn’t confirm one way or another whether or not Cavill will continue to be Superman, but instead just says that they still have a good relationship with the actor. It seems a little suspicious that they wouldn’t say anything solid, considering Cavill’s agent made it seem like this report was completely incorrect. Even if they have no current plans for the character, they could have said he was still set to portray the character when they do decide on a direction for the Man of Steel, but this just makes the initial report seem more legitimate, which is definitely upsetting for us fans.
There has been an uproar from the fans since this news broke, as many have been waiting for a true Man of Steel sequel since 2013. Even the director of Man of Steel, Batman v Superman, and the early cut of Justice League, Zack Snyder, went online to share a tribute to Cavill’s time as Superman with a storyboard for a deleted scene from his time on Justice League. Snyder was the one who brought Cavill into the world of DC all those years ago.
Cavill has yet to comment on this, and rumors are floating around that WB is eyeing Michael B. Jordan to replace him, which would definitely be an interesting, and inevitably controversial choice. Whatever happens, DC Comics News will be here to give you all the details as they drop.
After many different changes to production and unstoppable rumors, The Batman is on track to start filming next summer which means, new rumors. Director Matt Reeves has been meeting with actors to play Bruce Wayne/Batman, but a name just came out that nobody expected.
Rumors out of Warner Bros. is that the studio is interested in making Game of Thronesstar, Kit Harington…
Jeffrey Dean Morgan really wants to star in another DC movie.
Morgan played The Comedian in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen film and recently had a cameo as Thomas Wayne in Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice but now Morgan wants a more iconic character; he wants to play Lobo.
Recently, Morgan was asked which Marvel character he would be interested in playing in the MCU. Morgan mentioned that he briefly considered Reed Richards of the Fantastic Four but then quickly changed the subject to DC and answered:
“The only one I want to play is DC and Lobo. He’s badass!”
This is not the first time the actor revealed his desire to play the alien mercenary. Morgan first brought up the idea in 2009, back when Guy Ritchie was reportedly set to bring the character to the big screen but doubted he had the body to play the role. Morgan joked that the studio could transplant his head onto Mickey Rourke’s body.
The idea of bringing Lobo to the DCEU or DC Dark film brands hasn’t yet been confirmed and whether or not Morgan is the right choice for the character is up for serious debate, but there is no denying that he would be an interesting choice for the Lobo character. Morgan already proved he can pull of the cigar-chomping, larger-than-life, foul-mouthed, ruthless yet eerily likable acting style as both The Comedian (Watchmen) and Negan (The Walking Dead) which would make him a strong candidate if, IF, Lobo was ever brought to the big screen.
While concept artist Jerad Marantz has previously shared some of his work from the Batman v Supermanand Justice Leaguemovies, he recently revealed his first pass on designing The Flash’s costume for BvS via Instagram.
