Incredible fan art combines Henry Cavill’s Superman and the more villainous Superman featured in Injustice 2.
Injustice: Gods Among Us is a DC fighting game that arrived to Xbox 360, PS3, and Wii U back in 2013. It featured the heroes of the DC universe, including Superman and Batman, clashing against one another in a Mortal Kombat style fighting game that tied into the Injustice comics.
That same summer, Henry Cavill debuted as Superman in Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel. In turn, Henry Cavill’s Superman and Michael Shannon’s General Zod were eventually made DLC characters for the first Injustice game.
In 2017, Injustice 2 arrived to Xbox One, PS4, and Microsoft Windows. Injustice 2 gave Superman a more villainous role than most fans are used to, as well as an awesome new costume. An incredibly talented artist by the name of Bryan Fiallos took to Instagram to show fans what Henry Cavill would look like if he were to don that awesome outfit worn by Superman in Injustice 2. Check out the exciting result in the post below.
Henry Cavill’s most recent appearance as Superman was in 2017’s Justice League, which was released only months after Injustice 2 hit shelves. Before that, Henry Cavill brought Superman to life in hit films like 2016’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and of course, his inaugural appearance in 2013’s Man of Steel.
Henry Cavill has yet to officially leave the Superman role but after Ben Affleck’s departure as Batman earlier this year, fans have begun to get worried about the actor’s future as the Kryptonian hero. Henry Cavill will next be seen in the Netflix fantasy series The Witcher.
The series isn’t an adaptation of the video game franchise. Instead, it will be more of an adaptation of the original book series that the games were based on.

The next DC film headed to the big screen is Shazam!, starring Zachary Levi as the titular superhero. Check out the film’s cast and synopsis below:
Directed by David F. Sandberg, 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 Hounsou.
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).
Shazam! will be released in theaters on April 5, 2019.
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.
Michael Fassbender is an X-Men alum and no stranger to comic book franchises. The actor has shown multiple levels of range and could definitely handle the Batman/Bruce Wayne personality. If they go with the older range for the next Dark Knight, then Fassbender is probably one of the best choices to take over the role.
Ben Barnes is out of a job after The Punisher season 2 and he's one of the best actors in that series. The second season tied up Barnes' arc on The Punisher and the actor has already told us that that he'd love to play the Caped Crusader. Barnes definitely has the pretty boy look going on for him and I wonder what his take on Bruce Wayne could be.
I've said this before and I'll say it again: Ryan Gosling needs to star in a superhero movie. I've always thought Gosling would make a great Batman. Every role that he's done has shown us his capability and he could crush it as Bruce Wayne.
Jon Hamm is my top choice for an older Batman. If Warner Bros. wants to cast an older actor for crossover potential, Jon Hamm is the studio's best bet. He has a similar look to Ben Affleck, and c'mon, the guy's look just screams Bruce Wayne.
Armie Hammer is 32 years old and was cast as the Caped Crusader in George Miller's Justice League: Mortal. That film will never see the light of day, but that doesn’t mean that Hammer doesn't deserve a second shot at being the Batman. He's charming, broody and will probably give his all for this role. Armie Hammer is a great option because he's young enough for Matt Reeves and Warner Bros. could work in a way for him to crossover with the rest of the DC Extended Universe.
Game of Thrones alum Richard Madden is my top choice to replace Ben Affleck as Batman. The actor is young, has the look and definitely has the acting chops to play the duality of Batman and Bruce Wayne. Madden just won the Golden Globe for Best Actor in a Television series for the BBC drama Bodyguard, so Warner Bros. may want to quickly snatch him up.
