While the drama surrounding "Wonder Woman" is still in the background, now a new and equally shocking drama has been added to the celebration: the beloved actor Henry Cavill, who was to return to play the character of Superman in the new film in the series, will not do so in the end, and this after it was already reported that the hero's suit The super was waiting for him and it seemed that all ends were already closed.
The wonderful cinematic world of DC, it seems recently, has become much less magical with the arrival of the new bosses, director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran, in their position.
The one who sadly reported the change in plans was Cavill himself, who yesterday (Wednesday) shared with his 23 million followers on Instagram that, to his great regret, after a meeting with Gunn, he learned that he would not be portraying the character of Superman again, following "professional changes and recasting" by the studios.

"Ultimately, I will not play Superman again," Cavill dropped the bomb right at the beginning of the post and then went on to detail the reasons behind the scenes.
"After I was asked by the studios to announce my return in October before their appointment (Cavill is of course referring to the appointment of Gunn Wesfern).
"This news is not easy, but that's how it is in life," the British actor wrote in a semi-desperate tone.
The 'change of shifts' is something that happens and I respect that," Henry asked to maintain a respectful tone. "James and Peter have a universe to build.
I wish them and all those involved success and luck," he said in a conciliatory message.

"For those who have been by my side over the years, we can grieve a little," he added, "but we have to remember that Superman is still around. Everything he stands for still exists and the examples he sets for us still exist. My time to don the cape has passed, but what Superman stands for will remain Always. Onward and upward," he captioned the post.
The 39-year-old Cavill played the character of the beloved superhero in three films (four, if you also take into account the two versions of "Justice League"), with his first time in the superhero suit being his appearance in "Man of Steel" in 2013 and the last time in the appearance A short guest in "Black Adam" this year.
According to reports, Gunn will take the reins in his own hands, as he will write and probably also direct the new adaptation of "Man of Steel", an adaptation that should focus on the superhero's younger years.
Although Gunn did not completely confirm the reports, at the same time as Cavill's shocking post, he chose to tweet his side as well, referring to rumors about his involvement in the new film: "Peter and I have big and exciting plans for DC that we can share with you at the beginning of the year, including Superman." He updated in a tweet he uploaded to his Twitter yesterday.

"In the early stages of the project, our story will focus on the earlier part of Superman's life, so that his character will not be played by Henry Cavill," confirmed what Cavill announced, but added that there is no conflict between the three.
"We just finished a great meeting with him and we are big fans of his," Pargan Cavill and even noted that "we talked with him about a number of exciting possibilities to work together in the future."
