Henry Cavill Allegedly Disses DCEU, Fuels MCU Debut Speculations as New Rumour Claims He May Play Reed Richards

Henry Cavill made The Witcher popular with his language of grunts and curses. He made Superman famous by…being Superman. He brought the Gotham vigilante Batman to his knees and also helped Enola Holmes in her run. Now, it is time for him to save the upcoming Fantastic Four film by being cast as…Reed Richards (Allegedly).

There are rumors making their way around the internet. One of the more prominent ones is that Henry Cavill will be joining Marvel Studios in their quest to redeem the MCU with their upcoming film, Fantastic Four.

However, nothing has been confirmed yet, the rumors state that The Witcher actor will be portraying the role of none other than Reed Richards aka Mr. Fantastic himself. These allegations have been spread by Giant Freakin Robot with their “trusted” source however, there have been no indications regarding the actor leaving the DCEU or joining the MCU.

Why Henry Cavill as Mr. Fantastic is a good idea?

The obvious fact to start off is the similarity. Henry Cavill’s facial features match heavily with what the comic portrays Mr. Fantastic as. Another reason would be the massive population of fans rushing into theaters to watch Fantastic Four instead of a DC movie without the Mission Impossible actor on the screen.

There are also rumors about Henry Cavill leaving the DC universe as there are currently no projects in the work that list him or Superman in the credits. Recently, Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson was booed on stage for wondering about the existence of Henry Cavill as Superman in the DCEU.

Thus, it would make sense for the actor to join Marvel and portray the role of Reed Richards since Mr. Fantastic, Geralt of Rivia, and Superman share the leadership qualities which would make the role perfect for Henry Cavill.

However, there has been no confirmation regarding the rumors. There has been no news about the actor even leaving the DCEU. The only thing to do is wait and watch.

Although most of the cast hasn’t been selected and neither has the director been set, Marvel’s Fantastic Four is slated for a release on 8th November 2024.
