What Happened With Henry Cavill?

According to reports from Economic Times, Henry Cavill is not under contract to reprise his role as Superman. Since rebranding as DC Studios, Cavill has been in talks with co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran (who is responsible for creating DC Universe). Superman, played by Henry, will not appear on the show. Cavill confirmed the news on his social media on Social and said:"Since I won't be resurrecting as Superman, that makes sense. The studio asked me to break the news in October before they were recruited, so it isn't ideal timing, but such is life. The changing of the guard is a phenomenon that occurs. That is respected by me. It is up to James and Peter to create a universe."

Following the shocking news that Henry Cavill won't be returning as Superman, heartbroken fans began speculating as to who might replace him as the Man of Steel.
