Henry Cavill’s return as Superman in the post-credits scene of the blockbuster Black Adam has made fans “stand still” for the past several weeks. Many people think that this will be a new journey, a new era, for the Henry Cavill version of Superman in the DC cinematic universe (DCU). However, according to Variety, DC director and CEO James Gunn is writing the script for a new “Superman” movie. However, he revealed that this project will not have the participation of Henry Cavill.
According to reliable sources, director Gunn has been working on the script for some time. The plot focuses on the character’s life as a fledgling reporter in the fictional city of Metropolis. Viewers will see Superman’s early days, including encounters with key figures such as his co-star Lois Lane.

“The film will focus on the early days of Superman’s life, so the character is not played by Henry Cavill.” “But we just had a meeting with Henry and discussed some possibilities for future collaboration,” the director shared on social media.
On Instagram, 39-year-old actor Henry Cavill said he had a meeting with director James Gunn and producer Peter Safran, the two new leaders of DC Studios. Accordingly, he will not return to play “Superman” as announced in October. For Henry Cavill, this is not easy, but he respects the company’s decision because “such is life.”
The actor said, “James and Peter built their own universes.” I wish them and the members of the group all the best. To everyone who has been with me over the years… We may mourn a little, but remember that Superman is here to stay, his ideals will always live on, and the image he’s given us is one we should emulate. The mantle of Superman is gone, but Superman will never die. “The journey we went through together has been a very fun and exciting journey,” he wrote.
James Gunn and Peter Safran are hatching a plan to completely rebuild the DCU. To do that, they are forced to remove the old projects and faces. Not long ago, the movie “Wonder Woman” 3 was also while Aquaman will also not have a new movie after the second part is released at the end of 2023.
