RUMOUR: Man of Steel Sequel to Feature Supergirl as the Lead
The hottest news in Hollywood at the minute seems to be the speculation surrounding the future of the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) movies with numerous scoopers/insiders providing an insight into the rumours and reports that they’ve been hearing from the Warner Bros. camp.
With the recent revelations by Grace Randolph from Beyond the Trailer that both Ben Affleck and Henry Cavill are done in their roles as Batman and Superman respectively; Leslie Grace’s Batgirl and Sasha Calle’s Supergirl taking the place of the World’s Finest duo; and a new Justice League being formed. Known Marvel scooper MyTimeToShineHello has provided fans with a claim about the DCEU that has gotten fans talking.

@MyTimeToShineHello was quoted on Twitter in saying “You are getting a Man of Steel sequel but with a female lead and no Cavill”. This tweet indicates that Warner Bros. are planning on a Man of Steel sequel but without the fan-favourite Henry Cavill reprising his role as Superman for the movie. The confusing part of this statement is that @MyTimeToShineHello doesn’t outright state that it will be Supergirl as the main lead but there is no way that this isn’t a Supergirl hint.
Sasha Calle will first debut as Supergirl in The Flash movie on November 4th 2022, and has been long rumoured to be receiving her own solo movie at some point but this news about her in the leading role for the Man of Steel sequel is brand new to everyone.
Reports of Henry Cavill being officially done with the role of Superman have been coming out hot and heavy from scoopers across the globe so this direction for Supergirl to take over certainly makes sense for the future of the DCEU, but if Cavill is indeed done in the role, it will certainly be a bitter pill to swallow for many fans.
