SUPERMAN: DC "Insider" Says Key To Warner Bros.' Success Is Focusing On Henry Cavill's Man Of Steel

There's still no indication that Henry Cavill will get another chance to play Superman in the DCEU, but an insider at the studio has said that Warner Bros. should focus on that Man of Steel moving forward.

We've never really been made privy to the reason for Henry Cavill's DCEU absence. Some believe it's a money issue, while others feel Warner Bros. is doing everything possible to distance these movies from the Zack Snyder-era of storytelling (his take on Superman was nothing if not divisive). 

Fans clearly want more of this Man of Steel, and one DC insider tells The Wrap that they believe the key to the DCEU's success is putting the focus back on Cavill's Kal-El.

Warner Bros. Discovery boss David Zaslav is looking to find new leadership for DC, and according to this unnamed source, "If anything they'll go back to individual movies unless De Luca has some plan. They need to get a f***ing Superman movie off the ground, and if the plan is a shared universe, a Cavill-led Superman needs to be the focal point."

This insider would go on to say that Zaslav's team "should scratch every Superman project in development and start fresh with Cavill."

Those projects are Ta-Nehisi Coates and J.J. Abrams' Superman movie about a Black Man of Steel and a live-action take on Val-Zod produced by, and starring, Michael B. Jordan. Whether Zaslav will feel they should be sidelined in preference of the classic Superman remains to be seen, but it seems most fans would rather see Cavill suit up again.

The Flash is rumoured to replace his Superman with Sasha Calle's Supergirl, which is no great surprise when, in recent years, the studio has used stand-ins for projects like Shazam! and Peacemaker.
