THR reports that contract negotiations between Superman actor Henry Cavill and Warner Bros. has broken down and that he will definitely not be making a cameo in the upcoming Shazam movie, and likely will not don the red cape and blue tights again for the studio. The main reason for this is because the studio is shifting focus to making a Supergirl movie which would require a younger Kal-El and that there are no immediate plans for another Superman solo story anytime soon. Cavill isn't the only Justice League actor likely on the way out the door as Warner Bros. looks to try and reset their DCCU yet again with recent lackluster box-office performances from both Justice League and Dawn of Justice. Reports also indicate that Ben Affleck is out as Batman. The move to do a Supergirl movie is likely due to the fact that the only recent DC based movie to be deemed a box-office success for Warner Bros. was Gal Godot's Wonder Woman, which will see a sequel being released next year. Aquaman is the next movie up for release in December, but the hype for that movie has been pretty lack-luster at best, so I'm not getting my hopes up for it being a huge success.
