Henry Cavill nixed as Superman

He was no Christopher Reeve for sure!   According to The Hollywood Reporter, Henry Cavill, who played Superman in three films, is exiting the franchise. Warner Bros. wanted Cavill to appear for a cameo in Shazam!, bowing April 5th, but contract talks broke down due to scheduling conflicts.

The studio is far from heartbroken, according to sources, who claim that there’s “a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn’t work” and that “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors.” Are you sad to see Cavill hang up his red cape?
