According to an article posted early this morning on The Hollywood Reporter, talks broke down for DC Cinematic Universe star Henry Cavill to appear in a cameo for the upcoming Shazam!, leading to further disagreements between the Superman actor, and the production company. Apparently Cavill has said he is done portraying The Man of Steel in any future films now.
There were no Superman films scheduled or even rumored for production, and Warner Brothers/DC has shown interest in taking their film franchise in a different, younger route after their recent lackluster showings at the box office (Wonder Woman excluded of course.)
With Cavill already signed on for other future projects outside of the DCCU, it seemed this was an inevitable turn of events, even though it still comes as a shock as many people enjoyed Cavill’s portrayal of Superman, CGI upper lip and all.
This story is still developing.
