Snyderverse Declared "Dead" By Insider; Says DCEU Actors Are "All Gone" Ahead Of DCU Reboot

Snyderverse Declared "Dead" By Insider; Says DCEU Actors Are "All Gone" Ahead Of DCU Reboot Snyderverse Declared "Dead" By Insider; Says DCEU Actors Are "All Gone" Ahead Of DCU Reboot

Seismic changes are being made to the DCU under DC Studios' watch, and one reliable insider has now suggested that Henry Cavill isn't the only DCEU actor set to receive their marching orders. Check it out!

While it's been reported that DC Studios co-CEOs James Gunn and Peter Safran will present their plan to Warner Bros. Discovery bosses this week, it's clear they've already been given the go-ahead on a number of projects.

Among them is a Superman movie written by Gunn that will serve as a reboot for the Man of Steel in the new DCU. That means no more Henry Cavill, of course, but will whoever plays the younger Clark Kent end up hanging out with Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman and Jason Momoa's Aquaman? 

Probably not. 

Reliable insider @MyTimeToShineH recently Tweeted out, "In case it wasn't [clear] by now - they're all gone. The ending of The Flash won't matter either way. The Snyderverse is officially dead." The scooper would go on to add, "James Gunn is doing a full reboot. He wants a clean slate."

This was to be expected and doesn't bode well for the rest of those DCEU actors. Wonder Woman 3 recently stalled and there have already been rumblings about Jason Momoa swapping Aquaman for Lobo, so a full-blown reboot of the DCU is clearly the plan. Unfortunately, that essentially makes all of 2023's DC movies completely obsolete. 

Unless DC Studios plans to keep a few familiar faces around (which would be very confusing), Shazam's story will soon end, The Flash's Multiversal madness is irrelevant, and Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is just another comic book movie. 

The DCEU had a good run - it launched in 2013 with Man of Steel - but never quite worked. A reboot is a necessary evil at this point, even if it means bidding farewell to some great actors.

I hope some actors can be recycled…

Like Xolo, who hasn’t even been in the DCU to be rebooted

Levi as Shazam, maybe recast Billy but keep him somehow

Or Margot as Harley, Viola Davis as Waller, Cena as Peacemaker, as all have been worked with with Gunn

@DannRamm113 - Blue Beetle is probably the easiest one to keep around, since, it probably just have a couple nods to the wider universe, if any, and all they would need to do, is left it at the editing room floor.

@DannRamm113 - honestly, the most likely people to return are Robbie as Harley and Davis as Waller. I think everyone else is getting recast.

I think we will get season 2 of peacemaker and that show will close out. Even Gunn had to make some sacrifices here.

@DannRamm113 - Clear them all out. I'm over the Margot as Harley thing. Start fresh.

@MrDandy - I'd like to see her as a jedi or sith. She'd be a good Bastilla or Satele potentially too. It's too bad she's a little old for what the MCU is going for with FF4, she'd even make a good Sue.

I'm at least happy that this solves the Ezra problem after Flash, but does this mean Flash Shazam and Aquaman should be seen as each their grand finale?

Good luck promoting that.

@UniqNo - Flashpoint would serve as a good finale, story wise.

If they have Aquaman 2 and The Flash swap places and reshoot the end of The Flash to reveal the rebooted newness of the DC Studios Universe, then I will actually pay money to see it at the cinema, despite Ezra.

The excitement for Superman will get butts in seats to see the end of The Flash. That and Keaton nostalgia could just work.

@ObserverIO -

This was my idea. Reshoot and get CAVILL in there and then say goodbye to DCEU

The DCEU is dead, long live the DCU.
I hope we get a nice panel next year from Gunn with a new schedule and casting announcements. Feels good man. Finally a man with a plan in charge. Good luck, Gunn.

@Spawnnn - same. I hope they're gonna blow us away at SDCC next year.

If Marvel is gonna drop some Phase 5/Avengers 5 & 6 announcements, SDCC23 is gonna be a great one. Already look forward to it.

@bobevanz - I love, love, love Cameron (Aliens and True Lies are two of my all time faves) but I just don't feel the hype for Avatar2. We're gonna go see it sometime next week but it's just not enticing enough to make it an opening day thing for us. Plus my wife has a bad back and she's dreading 3 hours in a theater chair.

So much potential.
