Round and round the rumor mill goes. We had to wait years before we finally got a confirmation that Ben Affleck was out as Batman, but even before that confirmation, there were also rumors that one of his co-stars, Henry Cavill, was also on his way out as the Man of Steel.
Most recently, a rumor was floated that one big reason Warner Bros. was having a hard time locking down a sequel to Man of Steel was that Cavill was making demands that include producer credit as well as director and script approval. Given the new sort of changes surrounding the DC Extended Universe, you’d be forgiven for believing it.
However, Collider got in touch with Cavill’s team, and they denied the rumor, saying it was “patently inaccurate” and that there was “no truth to this.”
But, that being said, where there’s smoke there is often fire, and as mentioned above, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of Cavill making demands the studio wasn’t willing to meet. Back in September, THR ran a report saying that he was parting ways with the studio, and that it all kind of unraveled while they were trying to lock down a cameo appearance in Shazam! This too was denied by the studio and later by Cavill in an odd Instagram post.
