Henry Cavill’s exit from the DCU made Warner Bros. Discovery’s stock market fall. The statement was stated by several fans allegedly trying to diss the newly made DCU and Warner Bros. Discovery along with it.
With several screenshots of WBD’s stock market crash, fans took to Twitter to claim that it was the result of Henry Cavill exiting the franchise. The other side of Twitter went on to explain that it had been already down and the stock market doesn’t work as simply as that.
Henry Cavill’s Exit And Warner Bros. Discovery’s Stock Market
With the recent revelation of Henry Cavill exiting the franchise, fans have been dismayed and shocked by the surprising turns. According to reports, James Gunn had to remove Henry Cavill from the DCU for reasons of removing the Snyderverse.
Although the real reason was stated to be a pretty odd one, especially in these times, the people had no say as DC Studios came under new management. The real reason behind Henry Cavill’s exit was revealed by James Gunn following the actor’s exit. To focus on a younger version of Clark Kent aka Superman, the DCU had to bid adieu to The Witcher actor.
Several fans, in an attempt to retaliate against DC, claimed that the stock market of Warner Bros. Discovery crashed following Henry Cavill’s removal.

While many people agreed with the theory, several people argued against the tweet and stated that the stock market does not work that simply. Other tweets went on to point out that the images attached aren’t even of Warner Bros. Discovery’s stock market!
There is absolutely no way… they think Cavill is popular or big enough to affect the stock market? 🤣🤣🤣💀 surely not. Overrated mid actor loses ANOTHER role? Disney and WBD 📉

This is too funny
First, CBMT thinks they know how the box office works, now they think they know how the stock market works too 😂
WB stock has been down since the pandemic, as a master of fact EVRRYTHING HAS. Y’all should do some@reading up in this and actually LEARN before

WBD's stock market would still have taken a massive dip of Gunn didn't take over. Then y'all would be blaming it on Cavill 🙄

The stock market is so much more complicated than one guy being dropped from not even the main part of a company dramatically affecting stock prices. Theres very few times where you can point to one specific incident that directly affected stock prices

With the unnatural trend that DCU is heading toward, people have been feeling distant from the franchise. Several of the fans also blamed the newly appointed co-head of DC Studios, James Gunn for the problem, while the director stayed quiet.
James Gunn Knew What He Had To Do After Joining DC
After the exit of Henry Cavill from the DCU, James Gunn finally addressed the controversial decision. While taking on the role of co-head of DC Studios, Gunn said he knew that there would a minority of people that would be displeased by his decisions.
“A certain minority of people online that could be, well, uproarious & unkind, to say the least. We were aware there would be a period of turbulence when we took this gig, & we knew we would sometimes have to make difficult & not-so-obvious choices, especially in the wake of the fractious nature of what came before us,”
Albeit a controversial one, James Gunn has also found supporters for his decision to uproot the entirety of the DCU and replant it once again. The idea of a younger version of Clark Kent is enticing for several people to watch how Gunn and Safran’s DCU will be received by the people.
