Do they recast? Or just start over?

Leave Superman alone for now. It's obvious many people have not liked this take on the character.

emporerpants
Always thought he looked the part very well, but we never really got to see him be a fully realized Superman. The closest we got were the few glimpses in Justice League. I would have liked to have seen what he could do when given more of a chance to, well, BE Superman. Oh well.

They will probably recast. I don't think they will do a complete reboot. Perhaps a soft one so they can keep the WW movie in continuity.

ares834
No surprise here. Still, it's a shame. I thought he did fine with the role and I enjoyed MoS.

Darth Thor
If Cavill and Affleck are both gone then just reboot! Can carry on the Gadot Wonder Woman films as a separate entity.

playa1258
They need to start over. It's beyond time.

Surtur
It's almost like he just wanted an excuse to leave and the Shazam thing gave him the chance. Cuz I mean, walking over a cameo? Lol.

His contract was up so he was negotiating a new rate going forward with them I guess.

Shame he never got a chance to shine in a well received Superman film.

Just reboot the entire DCEU. DC needs to admit defeat.

Yeah a shame. Still, remember that one time he snapped Zod's neck? LOL!

Khazra Reborn
They should just start over with Shazam

Robtard
Cavill was well cast, too bad the writing/directing didn let him fully flesh out the character. Same with Wonder Woman.

Wonder where this leaves the 2020 Flashpoint based film. Though I guess they could potentially use that film to do a soft reboot due to time travel/alternate realities.


Imo, they should scrap everything planned and do a hard reboot after two-three years.

The Spectre+
what a shame.but why?, just why??, why!!!!!!????? somebody under the heavens tell me why!!!!!!!!!!!!.

BrolyBlack
There really wont be another like cavill, this is a shame.

StiltmanFTW
They don't have the guts to start all over again.

They'll go back to the stand-alone formula. They kinda already have; see the Phoenix Joker film.

Robtard
Rumors already starting that the next Superman could be cast as a *gasp* not White actor. Michael B. Jordan and an Asian man I've not heard of have been thrown around. Would be funny as certain people would lose their shit.


I think Cavill's counterpart in The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Armie Hammer could be a good fit. He has the look, is a decent actor and would only be around 35 in 3 or so years.

I'm just not that upset by this. It isn't Cavill's fault that the DCEU ended up faring so poorly, but he wasn't very good in the role, and I think letting him go was a wise decision.

Kinda hope it happens just for that reason as long as they cast a talented non-White actor who's able to capture Superman's personality well.

Elba is on the short-list to be the next Bond, he's shown reluctance though.

This is my bet on what they're going to do. Flashpoint essentially led to a soft reboot in the comics when it happened, this is probably the best bet as it would allow them to keep the successful aspects going without issue (Wonder Woman, perhaps Aquaman, Flash) and reboot Superman/Batman. Maybe get rid of Cyborg.

Darth Thor
I doubt theyre going to spend 200million on a film just to soft reboot.

Seems to me like their soft reboot is just to carry on without Batman and Superman.

The report even pretty much says they will shift focus from Superman to Supergirl for now, and that they wont be using Superman for the next few years. And Matt Reeves Batman is likely a younger Batman so not one who will be with the Justice League.

BackFire
Well it wouldn't just be a reboot, it could also be a good Flash story, and a very unique crossover type film if done right. The comic series was pretty cool.

wakkawakkawakka
^ So even after this WB is still trying to push a Supergirl movie?

Kind of disappointed that we will never get to see Cavill really take on the role of Superman in a Snyder-less film. He has the makings of a decent one just that the script/directing never really worked out.

Robtard
Supergirl takes place before Kal became Superman, so they could do a solo SG film and then include her in Superman's place for Flashpoint a year later or so.

Not that I like that, but it's an idea if they're not going to do the smart thing and scrap future films and do a hard reboot, recasting everyone and going with a new DC-verse, even if it means losing Galdot as WW.

BackFire
Yeah I thought Cavill was a solid Superman, the problems in the movies he was in were not his fault.

Darth Thor

Yeah but id prefer to just have a couple of solo Flash movies first.

Although id be all for asap it if Flashpoint switches Ezra Flash for a better less goofy Flash.

Robtard
Though I do admit, if they brought in Thomas Wayne for Flashpoint as the alternate reality Batman, Jeffrey Dean Morgan is already perfectly cast in that role. Get him on a high calorie, high protein diet hitting the gym with the professional trainers to bulk up muscle and he's set.

Robtard
And for phucks' sake, cast Mark Strong as Lex Luthor. Good actor and the man is absolutely perfect for the role.

I'm still convinced Jessie Eisenbergisraelgoldmenhebrewstein blew several people for that role and he must be an expect at giving head; as there is no way he nailed the role during casting sessions/readings. No way.

steverules_2

Robtard
Affleck has bounced back and forth for awhile now, with his alcohol problems and Cavill out, it's safe to say he's probably out for good too

Somebody check on Zack to make sure he's ok.

The perfect Lex Luthor would be Bryan Cranston. He can just be Heisenberg from Breaking Bad, and he already said he'd do the role if it was offered to him. Such a missed opportunity.

Acting-wise he'd be great at it as well, but Mark Strong also physically looks the part and is in a better age-range.

But there were so many superior choices to Eisenberg, it's ridiculous. Though in hindsight with the DCCU possible going belly up, maybe it's a good thing a great actor for Lex wasn't cast.

playa1258
I would back Strong for Lex also. Just have EisenLex as his bastard son.

On one hand, I really liked Cavills casting as Supes. He would have done great with the right script. On the other, they completely botched Flash, and he's my second favorite comic character of all time (right behind Spidey). Flashpoint and Flash need to be done justice, and I honestly don't think the DCEU is capable of delivering.

A black Superman alone I could see going fine with the normie cinema-goers, but a black Superman who isn't a Kryptonian and instead has psychic powers who is named Harvey Dent is too much for the normies that make superhero movies their big boy bucks.

If we're going the route of alternate universe Supermen, I could see one based on Earth 23's Kalel being a possibility. Tangent is just too weird IMO.

It would be cool though. thumb up

Well Strong is Sivana in Shazam, so that cuts out that possibility.

Rumour has it that Jesse was originally cast as Riddler, and Bryan Cranston as Luthor, but when Cranston wasnt available they just changed Jesse to Luthor, but let him carry on playing him like Riddler.

Man, it is a shame. I legitimately think Man of Steel is a great film, the second or first best (perhaps behind Richard Donner's Superman: The Movie) Superman movie ever made. It went awry from there, but I loved MoS.

I've said it before, but how Superman keeps getting messed up is disappointing. The massive amounts of lore in the comics from which to draw as well as previous media adaptations that have captured Clark in various entertaining ways (especially the DC Animated Dini/Timm-verse, still IMO perhaps the best shared universe on-screen save maybe the MCU) should make it almost impossible, but alas, here we are.

Thought Cavill was great, just had the wrong teams with the wrong gameplan for his Superman take.

WolvesofBabylon
Batman vs Superman ruined DC in my opinion. That movie should have never happened. Man of Steel was good not great but still a decent movie. They should have went with a MOS 2 with Lex but a different Lex and left out Batman and Doomsday. Then MOS 3/4 could have been a two part movie with Doomsday and the Death/Return of Superman.

If the Joker movie does well, and the DCEU continues to crumble, then they likely would move in that direction.

But now that you mention it, Since they are doing Elseworlds why not just Reboot the DCEU, and carry on the Gadot Wonder Woman films separately?

No point in clinging onto an entire failed shared universe for just 1 successful part of it.

Surtur
Or what about doing "Red Son"? Would be awesome.

Senor Cage
I wonder what his cryptic message meant. Dany Garcia said the suit is still in the closet. Whatever that means.

Robtard
She's saying either his suit is gay and won't come out publicly, or that while Cavill's out of the role, there's still a possibility he could go back, meaning if they throw enough money at him and the scheduling works

I think they are just too dumb and arrogant to reboot.

I mean Affleck and Cavill have forced them to half reboot anyway. But the fact that they have gone ahead and began a new franchise in the DCEU (Shazam), means that was never an option for them.

Yeah, Flashpoint could certainly be a way to go. He could change things and he could join a completely different, already existing Justice League that has Supergirl and others as the team.

Meh just reboot after Wonder Woman 2.

Batman and Superman are gone anyway. And Flash and Aquaman are both terrible casting. We also need a better Luthor.

A full reboot is needed, not some Flashpoint partial reboot IMHO.

Yeah look at WW.

WW proved one good film wont save them.

I agreed when they had Cavill and Affleck. But now I just think its pointless to carry on just for WW. Shes already getting a sequel, and that will be her 4th film.

No need to cling onto a failed Shared Universe just for her, unless Aquaman and Shazam both blow it out of the park (although Shazam doesnt even need to connect to the current shared universe).
