This ‘Action Comics’ Variant Cover Looks Exactly Like Henry Cavill As Superman
An Action Comics #1009 variant cover bares a striking resemblance to Henry Cavill’s DCEU Superman.
As DC fans continue to voice their desire for a Man of Steel sequel, it was reported in September Henry Cavill will no longer play Superman. Contract negotiations were cited at the main reason for the departure of Henry Cavill from the role, with the actor reportedly wanting more control over the script. Henry Cavill was also in talks to appear in Shazam! until it fell through. It is uncertain when a new Superman will appear on the big screen, with Warner Bros. currently developing a Supergirl film.

Shazam! is the DCEU’s next film and stars Asher Angel, Zachary Levi, Mark Strong, Jack Dylan Grazer, Grace Fulton, Ian Chen, Jovan Armand, Faithe Herman, Cooper Andrews, Marta Milans and Djimon Hounsou. Here’s the official synopsis:
“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, and will be followed by Birds of Prey (And The Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) on February 7, 2020, and Wonder Woman 1984 on June 5, 2020. A standalone Joker film set outside of the DC Films universe starring Joaquin Phoenix as the Clown Prince of Crime is also set to hit theaters October 4, 2019.
