The message from Henry Cavill The confirmation that he will no longer be reprising his role as Superman in the DC Universe, led by James Gunn and Peter Safran, has left fans of the Clark Kent we’ve come to know and love over the past decade absolutely devastated destroyed.
However, as Cavill himself said in his Instagram post confirming the sad news, it’s time to look ahead and up — and that’s exactly what comic book fans are doing right now, leading the star to his next role move and how better to stick it to Gunn and Safran’s new universe than by defecting to Marvel Cinematic Universe?
We’re still in a period of transition and have yet to see Anthony Mackie really shine in the big Captain America shoes left behind by Chris Evans, so the Marvel Cinematic Universe needs a Captain, at least for now. So the fandom has spoken – Henry Cavill should be making his MCU debut as Captain Britain.
The good news for these hopeful fans is that last year Cavill was asked which character he would like to play in the Marvel Cinematic Universe if given the opportunity. The former butcher of Blaviken and Son of Krypton has expressed an interest in the very role, so Kevin Feige had better pick up the phone before Netflix tries to get him back as Geralt (to Liam Hemsworth’s dismay).
As for Superman’s fate in Gunn and Safran’s DC Universe, the son of Krypton will return to the big screen, although Cavill won’t be wearing a cape. Instead, a new Superman film written by Gunn will focus on the Man of Steel in his younger years.
