The Internet Reacts to Henry Cavill's Superman Exit

As the studio attempts to shake up the struggling DC Universe, it is also prioritizing its Harley Quinn "Birds of Prey" spinoff, along with Todd Philip's stand-alone Joker film, and a "Wonder Woman" sequel.

The Hollywood Reporter write that Henry, who has played Superman in three films, can't commit to a planned cameo in Shazam! and the studio is now also reportedly putting a stop to any future appearances in the franchise.

Henry was set to appear as Superman in next April's release of Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi but according to THR contract talks between the actor's representatives and Warner Bros broke down.

As you can see in the slides below, fans are pouring support for Cavill onto social media, and their tune is rather melancholic.

Henry Cavill, who starred as Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League, is reportedly saying farewell to the so-called DC Extended Universe.

It's worth noting that other DC comics heroes that shared a screen with Cavill in the critically panned "Justice League" will continue with their characters. If Cavill is out, it looks like the two founding pillars of Warner Bros' DCEU might be leaving crimefighting behind. As for Cavill, the actor stirred headlines recently when he confirmed his casting in Netflix's adaptation of The Witcher.

"That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine". The actor will lead the project as Geralt, and Cavill's well-known love for the video game series prompted fans to praise his casting once it went live.
