The bad news came from actor Henry Cavill, who said that he would not return as Superman in the DC Universe. Many thought that Cavill’s words were like “love at first sight”, which saddened many people and at the same time thought about the fate of the Superman character.
In response, shortly after Cavill said, new DC Studios head James Gunn said that he would be announcing new DCU projects soon, one of which would feature a new Superman story.
Now it’s the next big event in Warner Bros. history, and DC Studios wants to completely reinvent the DC Extended Universe. Appointing James Gunn and Peter Safran as CEO of DC Studios, undoing a lot of work, renaming the movie universe the DCU.
Cavill’s latest announcement is the latest fallout from the DCU revamp, which saw the appearance of his character and Black Adam’s credits canceled by both parties.
According to James Gunn’s recent statement on his Twitter account, it was revealed that several new DCU projects will be announced next year. “Peter [Safran] and I have a number of DC projects lined up that we’re very excited about.
We shared exciting news about our first project at the start of the new year,” Gunn wrote. In a tweet, Gunn wrote that his role brought a young Superman to the DCU. “One of them is Superman [film].
Initially, our story focused on Superman’s early life, so Henry Cavill wasn’t playing that character,” Gunn added.
Variety reports that the plot of the Superman reboot follows Clark Kent’s journey as a young journalist in Metropolis City. Over time, he met many important people in his life, including Lois Lane.
Although Superman’s regeneration plan has been revealed in a plot twist, it’s a shame that until now there’s no word on which actor will play the young Superman in the DCU later on.
Who do you think he is the best young actor to replace Henry Cavill.***
