    Is Supergirl more popular than Shazam and Aquaman combined?

    I don’t know if she’s even one of top 5 DC females.

    I am confused why you can't have a Superman and Supergirl series at the same time...

    Poison Ivy over Supergirl? Hard to believe.

    I don't want Cavill gone. I don't think he's ever been the problem. If nothing else he looks the part perfectly, maybe more than any other actor that's played it. I think he has a great Superman in him and I would rather see that realized.

    I can easily believe, but then again I’m Batman biased.

    The issue is that WB has a lot of different competing fiefdoms. Leaks are part of the political backstabbing that is needed to get ahead. Also why a million different Joker movies are in development.

    I’d like another Superman movie as much as - actually, probably more than - the next guy, but I’d much rather they retire the character for a bit than continue to **** him up like they’ve been doing. A bad Superman film is worse than getting no Superman films IMO.

    Not good that Cavill is leaving. But considering he was a good Superman in 1/3 movies (and the ending of JL), I can see why this is happening. I don't blame him, but the scripts.

    Which is a shame, because this year he played a better and more awesome character with around 30 mins of screentime than he ever did in 3 DCEU films.

    I like Henry, didn't like his Superman. Is it too late to cast him in the mcu?

    If I know the fan community, I am just waiting for the first round of fan castings to start putting Cavill in as like Reed Richards or something.

    I don't think they're replacing Superman with Supergirl. They just don't want to waste their money and time on him because they realized they don't know what to do with the guy. Superman had it's chance. They will just try different properties, more trendy. Wonder Woman made money, so they need more gals in lead roles. Get ready for the onslaught.

    So nothing Happened today to really contradict this report.

    There have been some talk of who Cavill should play in the MCU. Someone said Cyclops. I don’t think he has the right build for Scott. I say he would make the perfect Gladiator from the Imperial Guard.

    Even if they were going to continue with Superman, Cavill really needed to go. Thanks to BvS and JL (and to an extent MoS), his version of the character is just too stained. Maybe he could have been a great Superman, but even if he did have a great performance in him as the character, at this point I don't think audiences will show up for it.
