I didn't see an appropriate thread to put this in so I made a new one. DC sucks.

The DC cinematic universe appears to be losing its Man of Steel.
...
Warners had been trying to enlist Cavill, who most recently co-starred in Mission: Impossible — Fallout, for a Superman cameo in Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi and will bow April 5. But contract talks between Cavill's WME reps and Warners broke down, and the door is now closing on other potential Superman appearances.

That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine. This effectively removes an actor of Cavill's age from the storyline's equation given that Superman, aka Kal-El, would be an infant, according to DC lore.

It's not a surprise that DCEU should pull the plugged, but I am surprised that Cavill's casting in The Witcher may be the final nail in their coffin.

Look at how well Marvel works. You know to expect 2+ Marvel movies a year, and those are usually forcasted a few years out. DCUE throws a bunch of ideas at a wall and sees what sticks, it doesnt seem like they take the time to plan anything.
2 part Justice league movie - how about 1?
Aquaman - sure, but only him
Flash - can't get it off the ground
Wonder Woman 2 - sure, the first one was good enough
Birds of Prey - whoops, Weaton is gone
Shazam - okay, but not really involved in the universe
Batman - But no Affleck, well maybe as batman, but not directing, maybe not as batman either
No news of new Justice League movie.
2 Joker movies - 1 for sure happening that isn't connected to anything with a new cast, 1 hopefully isn't happening
Suicide Squad 2 - maybe. It's on the timeline, but filming keeps getting pushed back on the sequel to the Oscar award winning movie

It's all a huge mess. No clear vision. Points are being connected.

TL;DR - DCEU has always been in trouble, but this does make it worse

Not really a bad thing as I like MBJ, but another big change up to the universe.
