Make it happen.
An unlikely campaign to secure Nicolas Cage as the next Superman is gaining momentum online, after the reported departure of Henry Cavill.
Earlier this week, it was claimed that Cavill will depart the role after negotiations broke down with Warner Bros over a cameo in the forthcoming Shazam! In a subsequent statement, Warner Bros refused to confirm his departure. For his part, Cavill released a bizarre Instagram video that saw him showing off a Superman t-shirt.
Amid the speculation about Cage’s departure, it was claimed that Warner Bros plans to focus on a Supergirl movie next. If that is the case, that move will take the actor out of the picture – in the Supergirl stories, Superman is just a baby.
According to a source, Warnersis unlikely to make another solo Superman movie for several years now. “Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors,” they said.
