Henry Cavill had a difficult time in DC following Zack Snyder’s Justice League (2021). Although every other character was getting a sequel or a reboot, Henry Cavill’s role as Superman was undetermined.
After leaving The Witcher franchise to join the new era of DC, fans now want the Man of Steel actor to join Marvel Studios for the character of Cyclops from X-Men.
Henry Cavill’s Demand In Marvel Increases After Joining DC
After leaving The Witcher franchise over creative differences with showrunner Lauren S. Hissrich, the actor finds peace in his role as Superman. With much help from Dwayne Johnson and the people, the tumultuous time of Henry Cavill’s undetermined future at DC came to an end.
Although Henry Cavill never left DC, the actor was not involved much following the release of Justice League. He found himself busy being Geralt of Rivia in The Witcher and Sherlock Holmes in the Enola Holmes franchise. Following his reemerge into the new era of DC, Marvel fans want the actor for themselves as they demand he be cast for the role of Cyclops in the MCU.

Who would I fancast Henry Cavill in X-Men? I personally wouldn’t put Cavill in the X-Men, but if we are sticking with the original team from the 90s then I gotta go Cyclops. pic.twitter.com/YWWFZW2LNi

The fans clamored for the actor’s inclusion in the MCU since it was the people’s voice that brought Cavill back into the folds of the DCU. Dwayne Johnson heard the cries of the audience and fought with the executives of DC to bring The Witcher actor back. With much pressure from the people and Dwayne Johnson, the higher-ups had to bow down as Henry Cavill donned the cape of Superman once again in Black Adam (2022).
Henry Cavill Left The Witcher For Superman?
The world was shocked when Henry Cavill announced his departure from The Witcher franchise. The actor had been associated with the role for 4 years and was the face of Geralt of Rivia. After his exit, people speculated that the actor left the franchise for the alleged amount of money that the Superman actor will make but that all away went very quickly.
The actor found himself at odds with Lauren Hissrich due to the creative differences that both persons had for the lore of The Witcher books. Andrzej Sapkowski, the author and creator of The Witcher verse had stated,
“I was more than happy with Henry Cavill’s appearance as The Witcher,He’s a real professional. Just as Viggo Mortensen gave his face to Aragorn, so Henry gave his to Geralt and it shall be forever so.”
Although the deeply regretted decision took place, fans have created a petition to fire showrunner Lauren Hissrich and bring the Mission Impossible actor back into the franchise. The petition has already gained 100K signatures from the Cavalry.
Henry Cavill was most recently seen as Superman in Black Adam and as Sherlock Holmes in Enola Holmes 2. Black Adam is currently running in theaters worldwide, while Enola Holmes 2 is available to stream on Netflix.
