It seems like the DC Cinematic Universe cannot catch a break! Besides Wonder Woman, most of the films have been panned by critics and now it looks like Henry Cavill will no longer be playing Superman after failing to make an appearance in  the upcoming Shazam film. Henry parted ways after he and Warner Bros. could not come to an agreement, and now it is being revealed the door is closing on him not only making future appearances in other DC Comics-related films, but that the priority is now shifting towards bring the Girl of Steel, his cousin, Kara Zor-El, aka “Supergirl” to the Big Screen!

Henry Cavill, who has played Superman in three films, is parting ways with Warner Bros., sources tell The Hollywood Reporter. Though neither side is confirming, the British actor, who first donned the blue suit for 2013’s Man of Steel, and then starred in 2016’s Batman v. Superman and last year’s Justice League, is said to be hanging up the red cape.

Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible — Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and will bow April 5. But contract talks between Cavill’s WME reps and Warners broke down, and the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances.

That’s because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. This effectively removes an actor of Cavill’s age from the storyline’s equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore.

Furthermore, Warners isn’t likely to make a solo Superman film for at least several years, according to another source. “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors,” says a studio source. As such, Cavill will join Ben Affleck, who isn’t expected to reprise his role for director Matt Reeves’ forthcoming Batman stand-alone film, as a hero on the way out.

A Warners source says the Shazam! deal fell apart because of scheduling conflicts. And that is backed up by the fact that Cavill recently signed on to star in the Netflix series The Witcher. However, another source says that the Witcher commitment came after the Warners impasse, suggesting a change in Warners’ strategy.

“There’s a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn’t work,” says the studio insider. Another source says Warners is trying to hit a “reset” button with the DC universe, steering its ship slowly into another direction. 

While Affleck and Cavill are segueing out, others who were seen together onscreen in Justice League are carrying forward. Gal Gadot is returning for Wonder Woman 1984, to hit theaters in November 2019. Jason Momoa headlines a solo Aquaman movie this December. And Ezra Miller remains on board to star in a Flash movie, which is due to shoot in early 2019.

Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara and chairman of Warner Bros. Pictures Group Toby Emmerich are looking to reinvigorate the studio’s DC Universe, which is still playing second fiddle to the Marvel Universe in terms of box office and critical acclaim. Just six years ago, when The Dark Knight Rises closed out the Christopher Nolan trilogy, DC was the superhero team with the mojo. But so far, only Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman spinoff has lived up to the promise of the franchise. 

We really hate to see Henry go. There have been a number of actors to play Superman on film since the character’s inception, but he ACTUALLY LOOKED AND WAS BUILT LIKE SUPERMAN. We know the DC Cinematic Universe is going through some growing pains, but we are sure they will get it together. We wish Henry the best of luck. You know we think he would make a pretty good Wonder Man or Hercules. Marvel Studios are you listening?

Strong people need other strong people to rely on. This is a fact, and when it comes to the world of celebrities, athletes, and even royalty, this all remains true.

Discussing her friendship with the Duchess of Sussex in an interview with Australia’s “The Project,” which took place three days after her US Open defeat, Williams, 36, said she and Markle, 37, stay in touch regularly.

“We were actually just texting each other this morning,” revealed the tennis ace.

“We have known each other for a long time, but we really are relying on each other a lot recently,” she added.

After reportedly meeting in 2010, Williams’ bond with Markle continued to grow over the years. In May, the athlete and husband Alexis Ohanian attended the former “Suits” star’s wedding to Prince Harry, a moment Williams believes will have a lasting impact.

“To have such a monumental moment in England, nonetheless of all the places, I felt like we were literally watching history,” Williams said of the royal nuptials. “I feel like in a few years we are going to look back at that moment and it’s going to be so historic. It’s going to be something that people never forget. The whole service was really wonderful, and most of all I just wanted to see my friend be happy. And I think that’s what happened.”

While Markle supported Williams at Wimbledon over the summer, the newest member of the royal family missed her friend’s outburst on the court at the Open earlier this month.

Williams exploded on chair umpire Carlos Ramos after being penalized for getting coached on the side by her coach, Patrick Mouratoglou. She believes she was unfairly treated because of her sex.

“I just don’t understand … if you’re a female, you should be able to do even half of what a guy can do,” she said.

We really love the friendship and sisterhood between these two. Let this be encouragement to reach out to your “strong friend” today. I am sure they would appreciate the love right now!

Porsha Williams & her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley, are expecting their first child together

“When I found out I was pregnant, I was excited [but] I had mixed feelings. The other feeling that I had beside excitement was fear,” the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, who suffered a miscarriage six years ago, reveals to PEOPLE in an interview for the newest issue, out Friday.

“I’ve had a miscarriage before in my past, which I’ve also been open about because I suffer with fibroids and had to have a myomectomy,” continues Williams, 37. “So just the fear of, ‘Is the baby going to be okay? Will I make it full term?’ All those questions that you ask if you’ve had a miscarriage before.”

“Going into the first appointment and being able to see baby and hear baby and know that baby is fine, then I can really wrap my mind around actually becoming a mommy,” she explains, sharing that she would be seeing her little one for the first time later on the same day as the interview.

Having a miscarriage is devastating for any parent, and we definitely understand her pain and reservation. We are hoping and praying that she has a healthy baby and carries them full term with no complications. Things are really looking up for Porsha. Not only are she and her boyfriend, Dennis McKinley, about to be new parents; the eleventh season of RHOA is set to debut this November, and she is still making moves in the hair business and radio/television with her line of weaves and on Dish Nation.

Congrats again Porsha, you deserve it!

Michael B. Jordan is definitely know stranger to superhero films as he portrayed The Human Torch in the ill-fated 2015 installment of the Fantastic Four, and most recently asthe villainous  Erik Killmonger in Marvel’s Black Panther movie. As also previously reported Warner Bros. is moving forward with a Supergirl film.

The Black Superman, Calvin Ellis

We have to say seeing Michael as Superman would be awesome, but I am not sure how well received he would be by the general populace, let alone fanboys. There is a way they could pull it off. In other universes in the DC Multiverse, there is a Black Superman named Calvin Ellis, who is not only his world’s Man of Steel, but President of The United States as well. It would be awesome to see this character brought to life. Then, there are the denizens of Vlathos Island on Krypton who were Black Kryptonians and created their own Wakanda-like paradise on the doomed planet.

What do you guys think? Would Michael B. Jordan make a great Superman? Sound off in the comments section below!
