Is it a bird? Is it a plane?

No, it’s the Superman movies which Warner Bros. are letting pass us by.

For now.

With Henry Cavill being cast as the lead in Netflix’s new series, The Witcher, speculation arose as to what would happen to the future of DC’s Superman films of which Henry is the star.

Well, it now appears as though we have our answer. The studio has decided not to make a stand-alone Superman movie for the next few years; switching focus to a Supergirl film as its priority instead, with 21 Jump Street writer, Oren Uziel, working on the screenplay.

An appearance by the Man of Steel in the upcoming Shazam! flick also fell through as a result of scheduling conflicts due to Henry’s starring in Mission: Impossible — Fallout.

As a result, it looks as though the 35-year-old will be hanging up his cape.

Reports have also claimed that Black Panther star, Michael B. Jordan, could be taking on the role of Clark Kent in the future.
