A new image has impressively transformed DCEU actor Henry Cavill into the Kingdom Come version of Superman.
Henry Cavill has been very cryptic about his return as Superman in the DC Extended Universe. Ben Affleck has announced his decision to leave the role of Batman in the DCEU but Henry Cavill hasn’t officially announced his exit just yet. If you’re one of the many fans who want to see the actor go on to have plenty more appearances as Superman on the big screen than this new fan art is sure to get you hyped for his possible return.
Henry Cavill was last seen as the iconic DC hero in 2017’s Justice League, in which he infamously had to don a CGI face enhancement for a number of scenes due to his Mission: Impossible-Fallout schedule colliding with his reshoot schedule for the DC Extended Universe team-up movie. The actor had to go through a special process that allowed the digital effects team to remove the mustache that he wore during the Tom Cruise-led action film and replace it with the fresh-faced Clark Kent that fans know and love. Talented artist Skull101ify has revealed new artwork of Henry Cavill as the Kingdom Come version of Superman via Instagram. Check out the incredible fan art in the post below.
Kingdom Come is a four-issue miniseries from writers Mark Waid and Alex Ross, the latter of which also did the incredible illustrations for the story, which debuted in 1996. The story was part of DC’s iconic Elseworlds titles, which featured the heroes of the comic universe going through drastic changes for the sake of intriguing, one-off tales of adventure.
Elseworlds was also the title and inspiration for the most recent Arrowverse event on The CW. The event was a crossover with the shows Arrow, Supergirl, and The Flash. The titular heroes underwent some major changes themselves due to a nefarious force altering with the balance of the universe, which will lead to this year’s Arrowverse event, Crisis on Infinite Earths, which airs near the end of 2019.
We’ll be sure to keep you updated on all news regarding Henry Cavill’s return as Superman as soon as more information becomes available. Are you a fan of the Kingdom Come mini-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.
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.
