Cavill played the role in three movies: Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman (2016) and Justice League (2017). There were, in principle, still multiple movies with the character on the schedule, but Warner would now want more focus on the character Supergirl.
Warner, according to sources, certainly a few years to wait before there is a new Superman actor is chosen and presented to the public. Cavill will soon be seen in the Netflixserie The Witcher. However, it is not clear whether he yes said against this role before or after the fight with Warner.
Previously there was already discord between Cavill and Warner arose when the actor because of the filming of Mission: Impossible – Fallout and not a supporting role it could play in the new comicverfilming Shazam! that following year.
It would be the second star from the DC Comic movies are that are saying goodbye. Earlier also gave Ben Affleck already not much sense to have more to Batman again to play. Other DC movies that will come out are the second Wonder Woman movie, The Flash (with Ezra Miller) and Aquaman.
