Henry Cavill Encouraged to Explore Marvel and James Bond Movies

The future of Henry Cavill still looks insecure in the hands of DC even after the change of the regime. Around a recent round of reports, the new DCU under James Gunn and Peter Safran can cancel Man of Steel 2, thereby raising doubts about Cavill’s Superman. Now amidst this scenario, many audiences have stated that the actor should now immediately consider James Bond and other projects.

The bittersweet relationship between Henry Cavill and the existing DCEU is well-known to everyone. The studio wanted eagerly to recast the Enola Holmes actor’s role with a new black Superman. But after the new regime came into power, the future of the character looked bright unlike the scenario now.

We got a glimpse at the Last Son of Krypton after a long time in the latest DC movie Black Adam starring Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Soon after his appearance in the mid-credits scene of the movie, the British actor took to his Instagram to announce his official return to the DCU. As the future of Superman looked promising, James Gunn and Peter Safran soon occupied the head chairs and now it seems that the story might be opposite to what we thought.

According to a recent report by The Hollywood Reporter, there are chances that the sequel to the 2013 Zack Snyder directorial might get canceled. The reports further reveal that Henry Cavill also filmed a Black Adam-Esque cameo for the upcoming The Flash but the inclusion of it in the future also seems doubtful.

Adding more to the sorrow of Henry Cavill fans, a recent reply by James Gunn to a tweet by Geekosity shows that the rumors and reports about The Witcher actor’s multi-project deal with the studio are nothing but mere hoaxes.

Soon after these updates started to come from the House of Superman and Batman, many fans were of the notion that the actor should probably rethink all the projects he was reported to do before his DCU comeback.

When the future of Henry Cavill in the DCU was doubtful in the pre-David Zaslav era, he was reported to have been approached for various iconic roles. Leading the list were the roles of the new James Bond and Hyperion in the MCU. The fans are now keen on convincing the actor to reconsider these contracts. The Immortals actor also left The Witcher series due to unknown reasons and some fans think that he should probably return to that project as well.

We have collected a series of tweets:

Although the demands are high, the chances are very slim about his casting as the new 007. The studio as of now wants someone younger to portray the character for the long term and Cavill certainly doesn’t fulfill their demands. Additionally, besides the supporters, there are also a certain amount of fans who don’t think it to be a good idea to cast the Justice League actor as Bond.

Some new talks also suggest that Gunn might go for a complete reboot for the franchise as various sources also cite Jason Momoa’s departure from the Aquaman franchise after the second movie. He is reportedly going to play Lobo in the new era of DCU. Now we can do nothing but wait for an official update from James Gunn that will provide a clear outlook on the future of this cinematic universe.

The upcoming DCU movie Shazam! Fury of the Gods is going to hit the theaters on March 17, 2023.
