Ever since the fan-favorite Henry Cavill, was released from his duties as the red-caped Superman in the DCU, fans have been wondering what’s next for the actor. While the actor has already become one of the top choices amongst fans to take over the legacy of 007 agent, James Bond, there are also calls for the actor to join the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
Apparently the DCU rival superhero universe is currently looking to expand and have a new project rumored to be on their to-do list. The supposed project is said to feature a new villain front and center of the story and fans have just the right casting for it – Henry Cavill.

Insider Daniel Richtman has a track record of presenting the audience with accurate scoops from the industry. Well, according to one of his scoops, Marvel Studios might be working on a villain that hasn’t yet been introduced in the MCU. Previously, there were claims that the villain-ridden team of Thunderbolts would be facing off against an antagonist in their movie who is a “conflicted and powerful villain” and an “evil Superman.”
All of these rumors point in the direction that the said antagonist could possibly be Sentry aka Robert Reynolds, one of the most powerful characters in the Marvel comics. While some rumors also suggested that Marvel is looking for either Ryan Gosling or Alexander Skarsgard to play a villain in their films, fans have their eyes completely set on Henry Cavill.
If Marvel is actually going to give Sentry a place in their universe, fans have just the perfect casting for it. No matter what the Studios say, fans of the MCU want Cavill to play Sentry in the superhero universe, as they’ve vocalized on Twitter.

Given the fact that Marvel Studios is expanding its horizon into television and Special Presentations and looking at how jam-packed the upcoming years are for MCU, there is quite the chance that the villain-centric project will be released as a Special Presentation, just like Werewolf by Night.

Who is Sentry?
Sentry was a teenager when he was injected with a serum that was much more of an intense concoction than the one Steve Rogers was injected with turning him into Captain America. Robert Reynolds was said to have the “power of a million exploding suns.” While Sentry might be a hero who has saved a lot of people, he is also an anti-hero who has killed a lot of people, except, people don’t remember that side of him and hold him in high regard as the Golden Guardian.
Sentry has ties to The Fantastic Four, the Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man, and the God of Thunder, Thor. The superhero/supervillain has superhuman speed, superhuman strength, and possesses the ability to fly. He’s able to cover large distances like from Earth to the Sun in just a matter of seconds. Sentry has the powers of telepathy and can also rebuild his body after destruction.
While he’s both a hero and villain, it seems like the character does more evil than good. It would be extremely entertaining to watch how the saviors of the planet fight a character that has the power of a million suns!
