Henry Cavill Takes to Instagram to Announce He is Not Returning as Superman

What in the hell is going on over at Warner Bros. Discovery?



Things just keep getting worse for the DC Cinematic Universe, despite finally having some tenured architects to help build it into something worthwhile. As it turns out, despite announcing recently that he was returning to play Superman once again, Henry Cavill has had to backtrack on that announcement by stating he will in fact, not be coming back.

In an Instagram post from earlier today, Cavill revealed that he had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran, the two guys who are going to hopefully build a better, more cohesive DC Cinematic Universe (similar to how Feige is to Marvel Studios). After their chat, Cavill walked away with the acknowledgment that his time as Clark Kent/Superman was done, a devastating blow for DC fans.

The guy just can’t catch a break…

At this point, Gunn and Safran are not off to a good start as Cavill was clearly one of the only good things the DCEU had going for it. And now that Cavill is no longer attached, that sour taste will linger for a long, long time. Coupled by the fact that Warner Bros. Discovery CEO David Zaslav is working hard to dismantle any and all traces of the SnyderVerse, it’s hard to say just what direction the studios want to take their DC Comics properties, as some of these decisions are just straight up baffling.

Cavill, who also recently departed from Netflix’s The Witcher, will have a lot more idle time on his hands which is quite unfortunate as we really want to see the guy put in work as both Geralt and Superman and now we get neither. Seriously, what the f*ck is going on anymore?

  1. On one hand, I am devastated that Cavill is not coming back after all. He was an excellend Clark Kent/Superman and deserves more opportunity to explore this role and all it has to offer. On the other hand, WB and Snyder did incalculable damage to this universe by not setting it up properly and the constant missteps thereafter only further prove that it needs to start from scratch. Unfortunately, this means that Cavill and any traces of the SnyderVerse need to be removed completely with no more investment in those versions of these characters.

    Flash, Aquaman 2, and Shazam! 2 are still coming, all with connections to the SnyderVerse. Let them come, run their course, and then we can forget all about them.
