Kal-El would be an infant at the time.

"That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine". Even with Aquaman, Wonder Woman, and Flash movies on the way, what does it mean for the roadmap if there's no Superman flying around in this world, waiting for the next Justice League?

Justice League ended its theatrical run with a worldwide box office total of $657,924,295, meaning it stands as the lowest grossing film of the DC Extended Universe. It appears those plans will not come to fruition. A source said: "Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors".

Henry Cavill is reportedly no longer set to be part of the DC Comics cinematic universe, stepping down as Superman after talks fell through with Warner Bros. I was actually looking forward to seeing if he could do something with a happier Superman, but now it sounds like we'll never know.

Cavill ultimately starred as Superman in three films: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that Warner Bros. had tried to enlist Henry Cavill for a cameo in the upcoming Shazam film, but conversations broke down along the way, and that apparently closed the door on other potential Superman appearances further down the line. Zach Snyder's reboot Man of Steel was a hit with audiences, but did not go down with the comic book faithful - particular, the finale, where Supes snaps General Zod's neck, was at odds with the character's no-killing policy in the comics.
