Henry Cavill was one of the biggest actors to have been a part of the DC Universe back when Zack Snyder was the director. With iconic movies like Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Zack Snyder’s Justice League, the character of Superman was well-loved by the people.
Although it wasn’t just the character but also the actor. Henry Cavill found love from all over the world for his portrayal as Superman. After his replacement, it seems that another beloved actress will also not be reprising her role as Supergirl in James Gunn’s Superman: Legacy.
Henry Cavill Is Not The Only Actor Getting Replaced!
With Cavill being replaced by David Corenswet, the world erupted into chaos. Wanting a much younger actor for the role of Superman, James Gunn decided to replace Cavill with Corenswet. Since the DCU is just on the verge of making, there are plenty of recasts for some iconic actors and characters.
Talking about his upcoming magnum opus, James Gunn is busy with the making of Superman: Legacy.

Alongside these reports, Henry Cavill does have quite an incredible dedication to the role of Superman. Stating that there is a curse and a boon to playing Superman, here’s what Cavill had to say about the character.
Henry Cavill Is Cursed And Blessed With Superman
During the promotion of the 2013 movie The Man From U.N.C.L.E, Henry Cavill talked about how there was a curse and a boon to portraying the role of Superman in the DCEU. In an interview with The Guardian, the actor revealed that he has to maintain his body everywhere.
“There’s a blessing in being Superman. You get more attention. But there’s also a curse, which is that you’d better f–king look like Superman any time you need to get your kit off.”
Although Superman will indeed feel different without Henry Cavill, the world is indeed awaiting what a new Supergirl could do in the DCU. As per the recent reports, Superman: Legacy is slated for a release date of 11 July 2025.
