While the DC Extended Universe is rolling on ahead, all signs point to them doing so without much of a Superman presence. At this point, there have been two separate reports indicating that Henry Cavill won’t have much a role going forward — with an emphasis being placed on him not necessarily being replaced, but Warner Bros. simply not using his character. In short, it doesn’t look like Superman will be on the big screen again any time soon.
While this is sad for a lot of Man of Steel fans, it does open up the possibility of them regularly utilizing the character for the small screen. Yes, Tyler Hoechlin’s take on the character has hopped in and out of the Supergirl TV show, but he hasn’t led his own show since Smallville left the small screen several years ago.
Well, fret not, because it looks like we may be getting another one soon enough. A report from FandomWire states that the upcoming “Elseworlds” crossover, which will feature Hoechlin’s Superman, will also act as a backdoor pilot for a spin-off Superman series. Pretty much, if fans and critics like how it shakes out, The CW could very well pick up a whole series.
But of course, like everything in Hollywood, nothing is a sure thing, and this could very well turn into a whole lot of nothing, assuming this report is even true. However, if it is, then you’d better start telling your Superman fans to pay close attention to this “Elseworlds” crossover, because it could determine whether or not they’ll be getting another series.
