While the news of not continuing with some of the major fan-favorite DC comic characters’ stories ignited a huge flame, James Gunn revealed a new plan for the DC Studios. He clarified that The Tudors actor was never fired. Stressing the fact that the two actors, namely Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill, were not a part of the upcoming projects, James Gunn spoke the truth, reported by Screen Rant.
“Henry was just not hired to be Superman in the Superman movie. There was never a deal there for another movie,” said James Gunn. When Cavill left the DC universe, he also wished the best for the upcoming projects of the new DC bosses. While recently, when Gunn was announcing his future vision and upcoming projects, he cleared the misunderstanding the fandom had.
Though the Superman actor has kept the iconic cape aside, Gunn is ready to give it a new face in 2025. The DCU reboot will see Superman: Legacy, the DCU installment in the upcoming years.
