Henry Cavill Out As Superman But Christopher Reeve Is The Gold Standard
Henry Cavill is out as Superman according to The Hollywood Reporter. While, I am not sure the report is accurate because Warner Bros claims there were scheduling conflicts, it’s also clear that WB has seen the handwriting on the wall and it spells “Wonder Woman” and “Supergirl.”
With that we may not see Superman for a while or until the next Justice League movie. But, for me, Henry Cavill is a great actor but he is no Superman. Christopher Reeve is the only actor to really fit the bill.
The perfect combination of heroic and vulnerable, other-worldly, yet grounded. With Cavill, too much was placed on a muscular kind of Superman rather than the complex version that Reeve portrayed.
I never thought Henry was quiet right on for the role. Warner needs to find the next Christopher Reeve.
