Henry Cavill to stop playing Superman, reports suggest

That movie would likely not have included Henry Cavill, even if Cavill had not exited. Following his brilliant turn in Mission: Impossible - Fallout and his appointment as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix's The Witcher show, it looks like the actor's time in the DC Extended Universe is coming to an end. "The studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine", THR writes. It appears those plans will not come to fruition.

Ben Affleck is also leaving the series after two films, although DC's heroes including Wonder Woman, Aquaman and The Flash are all set to continue their big screen adventures, with Gal Gadot is returning for Wonder Woman 1984, and Jason Momoa headlining a solo Aquaman movie this December.

The Boston Globe said in an editorial yesterday: "Kavanaugh's obvious hostility to abortion rights is alarming". And in recent polls, Manchin has been leading Republican nominee Patrick Morrissey.

According to the highly reputable Hollywood Reporter, Cavill - who has played Superman in three films - will not be playing Clark Kent and his re-caped caped alter ego, although neither side has confirmed the story. Cavill campaigned hard for the role originally and is a massive Superman fan. "There is a whole style of Superman's character that I'm very keen to tell and I'm looking forward to the opportunity", the actor said.

The actor first assumed the role in 2013's Man of Steel, and then reprised it for Batman v. Superman (2016) and Justice League (2017). Zach Snyder's reboot Man of Steel was a hit with audiences, but did not go down with the comic book faithful - particular, the finale, where Supes snaps General Zod's neck, was at odds with the character's no-killing policy in the comics.
