Since the day Henry Cavill announced his exit from the fan-favorite show, The Witcher, his fans have been extremely sad about it. However, they were happy to see his return to the DC Extended Universe as Superman. When Cavill left the show, everyone was excited and optimistic about the sequel of Man of Steel. But as the recent reports suggested, James Gunn is not planning anything for Superman currently. Therefore, between the exit and the return of the English actor, did he leave the show for nothing?
Amidst all this chaos, who are most affected by these actions are Henry Cavill’s fans. Netflix even tried to cheer the fandom up with a prequel to The Witcher. But fans discarded the show and expressed their disappointment widely. Now, James Gunn has excluded Superman from his future planning for the DCEU, fans have been reacting the same way. They are questioning the decision. Let us find out more about their views on this decision.
Fans react to Henry Cavill left behind at the DCEU
With the return of their beloved Superman in Black Adam, his fans hoped for Man of Steel 2. Cavill himself expressed his excitement about the same and said he would love to sit with James Gunn to discuss the future of Superman. But now, as Gunn has sidelined The Witcher actor recently, fans expressed their feelings on Twitter.

While the primary question that everyone is asking, other people have shared their views as well. One of the users said Marvel needed to jump in and make Cavill Captain Britain. Another one expected the return to The Witcher world. While some of them tried to put their trust in James Gunn’s plans and were hoping he would surely keep Cavill as Superman. Another user wondered if he left The Witcher world for House of the Dragons or he would be hired to play his passion project, James Bond.
Most likely would have still left even without superman, apparently he disagreed with the writers a lot due to the fact that they were drifting from the source material and hes a fan of the books and games so he wanted to keep it loyal

Cavill: “since the Superman thing didn’t work out, I guess I’ll do the next season of The Witcher.”
Netflix: “OH THANK GOD! Piss off, Liam.”

While these fans are expressing their views about the decision that James Gunn just made, how do you feel about it? How do you think the future of Superman would turn out? How would canceling the Man of Steel sequel benefit the DC Universe? Until we see him again as Superman, let us cherish Cavill as Superman in Man of Steel here.
