7 Actors Who Could Totally Replace Henry Cavill as Superman
If the reports are true, Henry Cavill is out as the DC Extended Universe’s Superman. The 35-year-old, hunky British actor has reportedly walked away from his portrayal of the Man of Steel after negotiations for a cameo in the upcoming Shazam movie fell apart. But who could possibly replace Henry Cavill? There’s been no news on a replacement thus far.
Warner Bros. might eventually tempt Cavill to put the supersuit back on, but if the studio doesn’t, we think there are plenty of hunky actors in Hollywood who could replace Cavill and take his place as Kal-El.
Here are our seven favorite candidates for consideration to replace Henry Cavill:
1. Tyler Hoechlin
2. Michael B. Jordan
Michael B. Jordan has already appeared in two Marvel films, Black Panther and Fantastic Four, so a dabble in the DC Cinematic Universe makes perfect sense.
3. K.J. Apa
The Riverdale star might have to actually lose some muscles to replace Henry Cavill as Superman. We can’t get enough of this young Aussie actor, who kills it weekly on The CW’s Twin Peaks-reminiscent Riverdale.
4. Jamie Dornan
How do you replace a sexy British actor who’s not afraid of taking his shirt off? With another British actor not afraid of taking his shirt off! You’re likely most familiar with Dornan from the 50 Shades franchise, but as cheesy (and, yeah, pretty horrible) as those films were, Dornan did a stellar job in UK drama The Fall (he played a serial killer) and looks great in the upcoming Robin Hood reboot.
5. Joe Manganiello
6. Matt Bomer
7. Miguel Ángel Silvestre
And last, why not a Latino Clark Kent to replace Henry Cavill? Silvestre has already shown us he can play soulful and complicated characters in his roles as gay actor Lito Rodriguez on Sense8 and as Franklin Jurado on Narcos. Maybe DC should give him a shot!
