Despite the grand announcement only two months ago, Henry Cavill will now not be returning as the Man of Steel. The actor met with new DC Studio heads, James Gunn and Peter Safran, and got the bad news.
Cavill posted on his Instagram: “After being told by the studio to announce my return back in October, prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life.” He added: “James and Peter have a universe to build. I wish them and all involved with the new universe the best of luck, and the happiest of fortunes.”
With the surprise appearance of the big blue boy scout in Black Adam, everything was looking up for Cavill, so this news will undoubtedly be a blow.
With Cavill also leaving Netflix’s The Witcher to be replaced by Liam Hemsworth, he’ll be looking for another gig pretty sharpish.
