Warner Bros. is working on two new Superman movies starring Henry Cavill as he reprises his role against a surprising villain.
After years of debate over whether Henry Cavill will return to play Superman in the DC Extended Universe, Warner Bros. has announced two brand new solo movies with the actor reprising his role. It’s not clear if they’ll be direct sequel’s to Zack Snyder’s Justice League, but it sounds as if the studio is considering using one of the Man of Steel’s strangest villains in at least one of the newly announced movies.
It’s believed that these Superman movies are separate to the upcoming reboot from J.J. Abrams and Ta-Nehisi Coates, with Warner Bros. bringing an entirely new creative onboard for the new Henry Cavill project. The plan is to shoot both films back to back, but the studio is reportedly trying to introduce Mr. Mxyzptlk into the DCEU by revamping him as a gritty villain rather than an interdimensional prankster. Danny DeVito is being eyed for the role, according to sources at April Fool’s News.

Here is the official synopsis for the Snyder Cut:
“In ZACK SNYDER’S JUSTICE LEAGUE, determined to ensure Superman’s (Henry Cavill) ultimate sacrifice was not in vain, Bruce Wayne (Ben Affleck) aligns forces with Diana Prince (Gal Gadot) with plans to recruit a team of metahumans to protect the world from an approaching threat of catastrophic proportions. The task proves more difficult than Bruce imagined, as each of the recruits must face the demons of their own pasts to transcend that which has held them back, allowing them to come together, finally forming an unprecedented league of heroes. Now united, Batman (Affleck), Wonder Woman (Gadot), Aquaman (Jason Momoa), Cyborg (Ray Fisher) and The Flash (Ezra Miller) may be too late to save the planet from Steppenwolf, DeSaad and Darkseid and their dreadful intentions.”
