SUPERMAN: Warner Bros. Has Reportedly Reached Out To Henry Cavill About Returning...But He's Not Interested

Fans remain keen to see Henry Cavill return as the Man of Steel, but what if he doesn't want to come back? Believe it or not, it sounds like the Justice League star is ready to move on from Kal-El...

Alongside Batman and Wonder Woman, Superman should be a focal point of Warner Bros.' DC Comics slate. The Man of Steel is a bona fide icon, and a character who has not appeared on the big screen (outside of a faceless cameo in 2019's Shazam!) since Justice League was released five years ago. 

It's baffling, though we've previously heard that the studio and actor Henry Cavill have come to something of an impasse over money. Why Warner Bros. wouldn't do everything within its power to deliver a new Superman movie is hard to say, but it sounds like Cavill isn't looking to suit up again.

The Witcher star has expressed an interest in returning as Clark Kent, but he may well have just been paying lip service to fans. 

According to Fandango's Erik Davis, "I've heard a story that [Warner Bros.] asked [Henry], and he doesn't want to do it, he doesn't want to come back." This will come as a blow to some of you, but we can't help but not be at all surprised in some ways. 

Cavill never had a very easy time of it in the DC Extended Universe. Man of Steel proved to be surprisingly controversial, while Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League were mauled by critics. The latter even saw him become a subject of ridicule thanks to a terrible CG jawline.

With all that in mind, it's really no great wonder the British actor has instead chosen to focus on projects like The Witcher and Enola Holmes. This doesn't mean he won't ever return, though we have heard The Flash is set to replace Superman with Supergirl in the DCEU in a fairly permanent manner. 

With so many changes taking place at Warner Bros. Discovery, we don't know what the future holds in store for Superman or those projects that were set to reintroduce the hero with a Black actor. 

Stay tuned for updates.


UPDATE: Well, that didn't take long! Davis has since clarified his comments, and it appears there may be some interest from Cavill after all. We'll have to wait and see how this one develops...
