James Gunn Writing New ‘Superman’ Film; Henry Cavill Will Not Return, but Eyed to Play Different DC Character

As DC Studios co-head James Gunn stated he is scripting a new Superman feature picture,

things are getting hot in Metropolis. Gunn has also disclosed that Henry

Cavill won't be playing the hero again in keeping with the new concept.

The director-turned-label-chief tweeted Wednesday night, "Peter & I have a

DC slate ready to go, which we couldn't be more over-the-moon about;

we'll be able to share some exciting details about our first projects at the beginning of the new year.

"Superman is one of the people on the list. Henry Cavill won't be portraying

Superman since the first portion of our tale will centre on a different period in his life.

But Henry and I recently had a fantastic meeting where we discussed a lot of interesting potential future collaboration opportunities.
