Cavill's recent announcement that he was taking the lead in potentially multiple series adaptation of The Witcher books and computer games already raised suspicions. Cavill has portrayed Superman in three films - origin story Man Of Steel, followed by superhero team-ups Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and last year's Justice League.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Warner Bros. had sought to sign the actor for a long-rumored cameo in Shazam!
The report adds that "contract talks between Cavill's WME reps and Warners broke down, and the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances". "Another source says Warners is trying to hit a "reset" button with the DC universe, steering its ship slowly into another direction".
When Warner Bros shifted their focus to the upcoming Supergirl movie, Cavill's role in the franchise was up in the air because he didn't fit the timeline. Though a final decision has not been confirmed, Affleck is not expected to return as Batman. The contract talks were allegedly for an appearance in next year's Shazam!
