Official Response to Henry Cavill Leaving the DCEU


After The Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Henry Cavill will not be returning to the role of Superman, fans have been speculating about the future of the role and the DCEU, not to mention future roles that Cavill might take on. But it's possible this report may be more rumour than news.

Since the story went viral we have had responses from both Warner Bros. and Cavill's representatives. First Dany Garcia, took to Twitter:
Be peaceful, the cape is still in his closet. @wbpictures has been and continues to be our partners as they evolve the DC Universe. Anticipate a WB statement later today. 
Not exactly definitive, yes the cape is still in his closet but that doesn't mean he will ever wear it again. And even if he does, it could be years before we see a follow up to 2013's Man of Steel. That's if we ever do with Warner Bros. shaking things up with the DCEU...sorry, Worlds of DC. But as promised, Warner Bros. did release a statement regarding the situation - not that it told us much:
While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we've always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.
Now it's possible that this could all be damage control while they develop Cavill's exit strategy. Or that one side leaked the story in order to bring the other back to the table. Lets not rule out the possibility that this story was prematurely leaked and that contract negotiations are ongoing.

Hopefully we won't have to wait too long to find out. I for one, would like to see Cavill continue as the Man of Steel. Although I'm still holding out hope for a Man From Uncle sequel.

The Snyder Cut | Wouldn't Be The First Time a Director Got a Second Chance

It seems that a fairly common occurrence amongst movies tied to Warner Bros. is the magical disappearing/reappearing director. Does that mean there's hope for the Snyder Cut? I certainly hope so!


Ever since Justice League hit cinemas in 2017 - possibly even before - fans have been calling for Zack Snyder's original vision to be released. Snyder famously faced issues regarding the darker tone and longer run times his movies were taking, especially after the negative response to 'Batman v Superman'. This of course led to rewrites of the superhero team-up movie, and certain plotlines established or teased in 'BvS' - including the epic Knightmare scene - being dropped. The director then left the production after the tragic death of his daughter. Joss Whedon was brought in by the studio to finish the movie, this included the completion of post production and some major reshoots, further altering the movie. All of which resulted in a movie that is drastically differen…

Moustache Lockdown Streaming Survival Guide Part 2 | Bosch

The lockdown continues this Easter weekend, and despite the absolutely glorious weather it's important that we stay at home. On that note, here's another TV show to keep you entertained; 'Bosch', available on Amazon Prime.

Check out part 1 of our streaming survival guide by clicking here.



Follow L.A.P.D. Homicide Detectives Harry Bosch (Titus Welliver) and Jerry Edgar (Jamie Hector) as they work to solve an endless stream of murders in the infamous Hollywood Division of Los Angeles. As well as a heavy caseload, the two must also navigate the perils of their personal lives, including marriage, divorce and parenthood.

But since when did that ever get in the way of the search for the truth? 



Based on the series of novels by Michael Connelly, each season beautifully recreates the books that inspired it, whilst …

Greyhound | Average Guy Movie Review

Greyhound is the lead ship in an escort group assigned to protect a convoy of merchant ships crossing the Atlantic in World War 2. Captain Ernie Krause (Tom Hanks), a career Navy man in his first command, must lead the fight against a wolfpack of German U-Boats. But will he be able to fight off the silent hunters long enough to get the convoy to the safety of British waters?

If ever there was a reason for you to sign up to Apple TV+, this is it. Much like Christopher Nolan said about Dunkirk, the movie Greyhound is more of an experience than a movie, which makes it a real shame that we didn't get to see it on the big screen, as it was intended. After a very brief introduction, the audience is thrown into the hell of life onboard a ship in the middle of the Atlantic in 1942. The whole story is told from the point of view of Captain Krause and his crew. Events are witnessed from the deck of the Greyhound and the occasional aerial shot, the German U-Boats are only glimpsed briefly as …
