No, Henry Cavill Did Not Demand Script & Director Approval For Superman Sequel

Henry Cavill Superman Warner BrosCollider reports Henry Cavill’s representatives debunked rumors claiming the actor is demanding script and director approval for any Superman sequel.

Henry Cavill’s future as Superman has been the subject of speculation since reports surfaced claiming his manager and Warner Bros. were in the midst of heated contract negotiations. While Henry Cavill’s manager issued a statement claiming he was still playing Superman and Warner Bros. announced no official decision has been made on future Superman films, recent rumors claimed the actor’s team was demanding script and director approval for a Man of Steel sequel along with a producer credit for the star. However, Collider reached out to Henry Cavill’s representatives and was told those rumors are “patently inaccurate” and that there is “no truth to this.”

For time being, there is no indication that Warner Bros. is moving forward with a Man of Steel sequel, but Henry Cavill is set to move to the small screen as the lead character of Netflix’s The Witcher.

The Witcher stars Henry Cavill as Geralt of Rivia, Freya Allan as Ciri, Anya Chalotra as Yennefer, Jodhi May as Queen Calanthe, Bjorn Hlynur Haraldsson as Eist, Adam Levy as Mousesack, MyAnna Buring as Aretuza, and Millie Brady as Princess Renfri, with Mimi Ndiweni and Therica Wilson-Read as novice sorcerers.

Warner Bros. and DC Films have many projects currently being developed including The Batman, The Flash standalone film, Green Lantern Corps, Black Adam, Supergirl, New Gods, and Nightwing.

The DCEU continues this month with Aquaman which is now playing and will be followed by Shazam! on April 5, 2019, 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.

Directed by James Wan, Aquaman stars Jason Momoa as Arthur Curry, Amber Heard as Mera, Willem Dafoe as Vulko, Patrick Wilson as Orm / Ocean Master, Dolph Lundgren as Nereus, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II as Black Manta, Nicole Kidman as Atlanna, Ludi Lin as Captain Murk, and Temuera Morrison as Tom Curry.

From Warner Bros. Pictures and director, James Wan comes an action-packed adventure that spans the vast, visually breathtaking underwater world of the seven seas, “Aquaman,” starring Jason Momoa in the title role. The film reveals the origin story of half-human, half-Atlantean Arthur Curry and takes him on the journey of his lifetime—one that will not only force him to face who he really is, but to discover if he is worthy of who he was born to be… a king.

Aquaman is now playing. Stay tuned to Heroic Hollywood for the latest news on the future of the current DC cinematic universe as we learn it.

    Pity. I like ROTF. The fact remains that a lot of the news on the DCEU tends to be unfounded. Remember when Devin Faraci on /film said he had a source claiming James Wan wanted out of Aquaman?

  • deevo.

    The good news at least is thst the door has not closed necessarily on Cavill Superman. Why else would his people ACTUALLY reach out like that?
