Henry Cavill Reportedly Quits Superman Role

Henry Cavill’s Future as Superman Is Cloudy, Warner Bros. Focusing on Supergirl

And amid his exit, Warner Bros.is looking to shake up its DC film universe - again. The studio, meanwhile, is focusing more on a Supergirl origin story, which would feature a teen superheroine.

Recent news of Henry Cavill's fade from the limelight of Superman has been put down to one thing: Supergirl.

This also follows the Birds of Prey movie news, which will see Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn paired with a female director, Cathy Yan, and an ensemble of female characters.

Patty Jenkin's success with Wonder Woman was proof enough, and the studio is now eyeing another female superhero. Another source claims that the Netflix role came after the issues with WB, suggesting a change in direction for the studio.

Garcia's statement stops short of confirming whether Cavill has any plans to return as Superman, however. The latter two were critically panned, and "Justice League" was a box-office disappointment. Now, Matt Reeves is directing and is expected to recast the role.

Ezra Miller, who starred as Flash in Justice League, is thought to still be on board for a standlone which is due to start shooting in early 2019.

Scheduling conflicts are apparently Henry Cavill's kryptonite.

Henry Cavill arrives for the European Premiere of "Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice" on March 22, 2016 in London.

Henry was last on the big screen in this summer's blockbuster Mission Impossible: Fallout, alongside Tom Cruise. Aside from The Hunger Games franchise, Claflin has mostly stuck to period pieces and romance films (Me Before You was a nice little hit for him).

The eight-episode adaptation of the best-selling medieval fantasy book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski centre on Cavill's character Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a "Witcher".

All of these are in addition to Aquaman starring Jason Moma and Shazam! starring Zachary Levi.

THR reported Wednesday that negotiations fell apart for Cavill to make a cameo in "Shazam!" next year.
