Warner Bros., is, would you fucking believe it, done with Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill. No, seriously this time. Until the next time, obviously.
Yesterday, it came out that Henry Cavill wasn’t Superman anymore. Then, WB issued a half-assed response neither confirming nor denying anything. After that, fucking Cavill himself posted some cryptic-ass Instagram message. What’s going on? Who the fuck knows. My best guess is that Cavill can’t agree on a contract, there isn’t a Superman movie planned, but that he hasn’t been officially replaced.
If he’s gone? It’s a fucking bummer. Dude deserved better than the shit salad scripts and directors he was given during his tenure as the Man of Steel.
I like Henry Cavill. A good amount. But, I don’t think his dramatic chops go too deep. With that in mind, I’m not really sure how good of a casting he is for Geralt. However, I also haven’t played The Witcher. So what the fuck do I know?
I love Henry Cavill. Love him in The Man From Uncle, love him in Mission Impossible: Fallout. I’m fucking ready to love him for a decade-plus as Bond.
You know what? Justice League was always going to be garbage barrel soup. No mustache ruined it. So, I’m glad that mustachioed Henry Cavill is throwing hands and looking swank in this teaser trailer for Mission: Impossible – Fallout. His mustache is both beautiful and powerful, and I’m here for it.
You wouldn’t know it from the dour, lame-as-dark-as-fuck Superman movies, but Henry Cavill is pretty goddamn charming. If you need proof, look no further than The Man From UNCLE. So while I’m a seemingly limitless DCU hater, I’m pretty excited that Cavill is joining M:I6.
Someday, Black Adam and Superman are going to punch one another a lot. Which sounds fantastic. Until then, we’re going to have to sate our lust for the two of them onscreen together with a picture of the two beefcake actors playing the characters.
Henry Cavill has revealed new Justice League promo art, featuring his band of dickheads getting real serious in their posing stylings. Not a particular complaint against these promo art stand-ups, though. If you’ve seen any stand-ups, you’ve seen that they’re all pretty fucking terrible.
You know, I’m just going to go ahead and be optimistic about the second Superman movie. You know, against all odds, I’m going to pretend that Geoff Johns’ presence in the DCU boardrooms means they’re going to *figure shit out* — and if I’m let down, I’m let down.
