Report: Henry Cavill Leaves Superman Role After Talks With Warner Bros. Break Down

Superman Leaves Warner Bros. After Talks Broke Down

Henry Cavill, the actor who has played Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v. Superman, and Justice League, is leaving Warner Bros., according The Hollywood Reporter sources.

The Hollywood Reporter also writes that Warner Bros. has been trying to get the actor to cameo as Superman in the upcoming Shazam! movie. However, the talks between the studio and Cavill’s representatives “broke down.”

The studio is also shifting to a different focus — namely a Supergirl movie featuring a teenage heroine. A source then told The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. may not be making a solo Superman film for several years, because of the need for new actors after a “certain run.”

Another one of the sources told The Hollywood Reporter that the Shazam! cameo didn’t work out, because of scheduling conflicts, since Cavill is committed to The Witcher Netflix series.
