The two actors are no doubt the two most popular stars to have played Superman on the big screen and this new image gives fans an idea as to what it would have been like should the two have swapped places, putting Henry Cavill in the classic Superman suit Christopher Reeve donned in the original Superman movie.

Henry Cavill walked away from negotiations to reprise his role as Superman last year after the studio failed to reach an agreement with the actor that would have seen him return for a cameo, delivering two lines of dialogue in Shazam!. Superman is still rumored to cameo in Shazam!, but it’s unclear as to whether or not we will see Henry Cavill’s face.
Henry Cavill can be as Superman in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. The actor is now filming The Witcher series for Netflix but fans still hope for his return as Superman in the DC’s shared cinematic universe.
Aquaman is now available on Digitial HD and will be released on 4K UHD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD on March 26, 2019. Following Aquaman, Shazam! is the next installment of the DCEU to hit theaters. Here is the synopsis for the upcoming film:
We all have a superhero inside us, it just takes a bit of magic to bring it out. In Billy Batson’s (Angel) case, by shouting out one word—SHAZAM!—this streetwise 14-year-old foster kid can turn into the adult Super Hero Shazam (Levi), courtesy of an ancient wizard. Still a kid at heart—inside a ripped, godlike body—Shazam revels in this adult version of himself by doing what any teen would do with superpowers: have fun with them! Can he fly? Does he have X-ray vision? Can he shoot lightning out of his hands? Can he skip his social studies test? Shazam sets out to test the limits of his abilities with the joyful recklessness of a child. But he’ll need to master these powers quickly in order to fight the deadly forces of evil controlled by Dr. Thaddeus Sivana (Strong).
Directed by David F. Sandberg, DC Shazam! stars Zachary Levi, Asher Angel, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Faithe Herman, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Honsou.
Shazam! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DCEU and Henry Cavill as we learn it.
The Witcher is currently in development and stars Henry Cavill, Freya Allan, Anya Chalotra, Johdi May, Adam Levy, MyAnna Buring, Mimi Ndiweni, Therica Wilson-Read, and Millie Brady. Stay tuned for more details on a release date for the upcoming Netflix series.
Top Actors To Replace Ben Affleck In Matt Reeves’ ‘The Batman’
Ben Affleck is officially out as Batman and it’s a pretty sad day.
Words cannot describe how sad I am to see Ben Affleck announce that he’s no longer Batman. His Batman is why I do what I do. In Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, I fell in love with his comic book-accurate interpretation of the Caped Crusader. It was a breath of fresh air and it felt like we finally had the one true Batman.
Three years have quickly sped by and we’re officially going to receive a new Batman for his next movie. Last night, Ben Affleck announced that he will not return as the Dark Knight in Matt Reeves’ The Batman and now everyone’s attention has moved towards wanting to know who the next Bruce Wayne will be. Matt Reeves is said to want an actor that’s around 20 years younger than Affleck while Warner Bros. wants someone older. My guess is that Reeves wants a fresh start while the studio wants an older actor for crossover potential.
In this list, I will discuss the actors I think can replace Ben Affleck as Batman using the parameters that Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. want. Hit Next to see our picks to play the Batman.
