'Supergirl' to Be DC's New Focus as Henry Cavill Exits 'Superman' (Report)

New information has emerged after news broke that Henry Cavill is reportedly leaving his role as Superman in the DC Universe.

THR has updated their bombshell story, saying that Warner Bros. is now shifting their focus towards a Supergirl movie. The film will be an origin story.

According to the original DC Comics, Supergirl would be a teen in her origin story meaning at that time, Superman (aka Kal-El) would only be an infant. This would take Henry‘s Superman out of the equation completely based on this timeline of events.

Furthermore, Deadline is now reporting that Warner Bros. is mulling over a complete change in direction in the Superman franchise and pondering casting Michael B. Jordan in the role sometime in the future.

According to reports, Warner Bros. and Henry‘s reps were trying to negotiate a contract for his appearance in next year’s Shazam! when talks fell apart.

    a black superman? wow dude, might as well make him gay & Lois a transgender .. ffs. stop changing comic book characters !!!

    The day the cast a black superman the racists are going to choke on air. But still pay to go see it while complaining.

  • Dawn Kebalz

    This is the problem. Total lack of creativity so they just change the race. How about coming up with new superheros and make to them whatever race/sex/religion you like?

  • Sim

    Why do think changing the sex or race character will succeed, of all the remakes none made and real money and none were as staple as Superman.

    We have people monitor every scrap tv or movie for any deviation of original characters if they played by straight or white actors.. the least they can do is not be flaming hypocrites, even though we already have many characters written in comics as white and are played non white actors in the movies.

    LOL, sure same people screaming choking on air “”"whitewashing”" ever chance they get.

  • disqus_NEqLWRu3Xt

    The fact that you put both in the same category is super telling.

    lol Let’s be honest. Michael B Jordan isn’t dumb enough to take this role. The DCEU is absolutely garbage at the moment.
