Since the passing of Chadwick Boseman, his successor for Black Panther has become a hot topic on the Internet. Some popular choices have been the return of Michael B. Jordan or Letitia Wright picking up the mantle.

How the fans were fooled

The infamous tweet was posted by an account called @DisbussingFilm, which styles itself as a parody of Discussingfilm and describes itself as “Your leading source for quick unreliable news about movies and unrealistic content.”

Despite the absurdity of the headline that Henry Cavill was joining the cast of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, many seemed to bought the tweet. It is now sitting at 28k likes and 2,477 retweets, which means many do believe it to be true.

While the point of Henry Cavill joining so many franchises is absurd on its own, the fact that the movie is so close to release makes the news even more ridiculous. Many on Twitter have expressed disappointment with the casting, not knowing it to be false, while others are already defending the decision.

Henry Cavill and casting rumors

Many sources already suggest Henry Cavill is returning as Superman and joining Loki as Evil Superman Hyperion. This could get rather confusing on-screen for the audience as they would be seeing the actor play very similar characters in a different light.

On the other hand, his rumored casting in the House of the Dragon has also been met with mixed reception. While the actor’s appearance in The Witcher gives fans an idea as to how he would look like a Targaryen, many feel the actor’s large presence can ruin the show.
