Henry Cavill Fired From Superman Role for Being Too Old

(WatchDogReport.org) – When it comes to their favorite TV show, movie, or comic book universe of choice, fans can become rabid about the characters and the stars who play them. So, it may be that Henry Cavill’s recent exit from two different franchises — Witcher and Superman — could become a blessing for Amazon if and when they put “Warhammer 40,000” into production.

In mid-October, Cavill announced he would not return as the main protagonist in the Netflix series “The Witcher,” and fans of the show expressed support for him. It was rumored at the time that his deep knowledge of and passion for the source books and games caused a conflict with the writers and producers, and rather than be a part of something that did not hold true to the spirit of the original concept, he departed.

In 2013, Cavill took on the role of Clark Kent in the DC cinematic universe (DCCU) movie “Man of Steel.” On October 24, he announced that his cameo appearance at the end of the movie “Black Adam” was a foreshadowing of his reprisal of the role in a new movie. However, just days later, it was announced fresh blood would be coming in to take over the reins of the DCCU and that they planned to center the next Superman movie on an earlier part of the superhero’s life. They said that at 39, Cavill was too old for the role.

Despite these setbacks, it doesn’t seem that Cavill will remain “unemployed” for too long.
