Warner Bros. wants to go into another direction for the Superman franchise.
A follow-up Superman project starring Henry Cavill has been put on hold for other female-centric projects. The studio is moving forward with a Supergirl movie featuring a teenage version of the heroine.
They are also prioritizing the Harley Quinn Birds of Prey spinoff, with Margot Robbie reprising her role as the crazed antihero, along with Todd Phillip’s standalone Joker film, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman 1984.
Cavill first appeared as Krypton’s last son in 2013’s Man of Steel. He reprised the role alongside Ben Affleck’s Batman in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.
