‘This really could damage the dude’s career’: Fans Blast DC for Publicly Humiliating Henry Cavill, Claim He Dropped Witcher So He Could Return as Superman

Fans Blast DC for Publicly Humiliating Henry Cavill

The appointment of Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran as co-CEOs of DC Studios, effectively replacing Walter Hamada, sparked a bright future for the DCU. It finally felt like Hamada’s restrictive vision for the franchise was finally going to end and much-awaited projects(such as updates on Henry Cavill’s Man of Steel return) would soon follow.

Preceding the appointment of the pair as the new heads of DC Studios was the unexpected announcement of the Man of Steel sequel that has been sought after by fans ever since the release of the original in 2013. Henry Cavill had even posted an update on his Instagram to tease fans of his return, but alas, all the bright hopes for the future of the DCU went haywire just a week ago.

The current DCU, which is based on the vision of Zack Snyder for the franchise, seemed to be nearing its end before James Gunn and Peter Safran became heads of DC Studios at the start of November.

However, announcements regarding plans for a revamped DCU soon came up and were eventually confirmed, pointing toward a new future for the franchise moving away from what Zack Snyder had wanted the DCU to be.

This would mean that the much-anticipated sequel to Man of Steel as well as the third installation in the Wonder Woman movie series would be shown the door, much to the dismay of fans. Even Jason Momoa will be seeing his final appearance as Aquaman in the third installation of the franchise, but reports are also hinting that he’ll be recast as the bounty hunter Lobo.

This came as a huge shock to many DCU fans, especially fans of Zack Snyder and Henry Cavill. The announcement of a new feature movie about DC’s flagship character Superman by James Gunn has also been met with a lot of criticism from fans, who can only hope that whatever Gunn is planning for the franchise would be worth ending a whole universe built over a decade.

Henry Cavill‘s future in the DCU is essentially undetermined now, with the actor having already pulled out of the lead role in one of his most successful projects, The Witcher TV series. He will be replaced by Liam Hemsworth as Geralt of Rivia.

But with fans convinced that he had dropped that role to excitedly (and finally) return as Superman in Man of Steel 2, a revamp of the DCU without any assurance of his involvement in the same has them worried over their star actor’s acting career.

Twitter especially has gone wild, and they are really voicing their concern for the Argylle star-

Fair point-

Should he seek greener pastures?-

Some suggest he should join the Westeros-

A huge factor-

Hope Hollywood does him justice-

Whatever happens, fans will at least be assured by the fact that Henry Cavill isn’t just some D-listed actor. He’s bound to get roles in major movies, and a possible switch of sides to the MCU cannot be ruled out either!

You can watch Man of Steel, which is currently available for streaming on Netflix.
