Now you get to see Cavill don a white wig and black leather clothes to play the titular “witcher,” Geralt of Rivia in the Witcher first look.

christopher mcquarrie man of steel 2

What will Christopher McQuarrie do next? The Mission: Impossible – Fallout director has a lot of clout now, but two projects he won’t be tackling are Man of Steel 2 and Green Lantern. Which is a shame, because he’d likely knock both out of the park. In a new interview, McQuarrie reveals that the chances of him directing Man of Steel 2 are unlikely, and that he actually already turned down a Green Lantern movie once before.

henry cavill superman

Well, this whole “Henry Cavill exiting Superman” situation just got a whole lot more confusing. The internet was abuzz yesterday following reports that Cavill had hung up his cape and parted ways with Warner Bros. But a cryptic new Instagram video from the (former ?) Man of Steel himself may have confirmed that this is not the case. Or it is? We have no idea.

henry cavill exits superman

Updated: In a statement responding to reports of Cavill exiting the role of Superman, Warner Bros. said, “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.” Our original story continues below.

Henry Cavill is out as Superman. After playing the iconic superhero for five years in Warner Bros.’ DC Extended Universe, Cavill is hanging up the red cape and will no longer appear in future DC films as the Man of Steel.

Fallout spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Mission: Impossible – Fallout.)

“The end you’ve always feared is coming,” the villainous Solomon Lane tells Ethan Hunt halfway through Mission: Impossible – Fallout. “The fallout of all your good intentions.” If the Mission: Impossible franchise has one specific problem, it’s this: it took a very long time to tell us who Ethan Hunt was. From the beginning, Hunt, as played by Tom Cruise, was a bit of a cipher.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation changed that. The previous entry in the Mission franchise took a step back and finally asked, “Who is Ethan Hunt?” The answer: he’s kind of a crazy jerk. Someone who will risk everyone’s life just to come out ahead. This was a fascinating development in Ethan’s character trajectory, but perhaps director Christopher McQuarrie – who is the first Mission franchise filmmaker to return for a second time – realized it was a bit too much. That the series couldn’t realistically continue if Ethan Hunt remained a borderline sociopath.

Which brings us to Fallout, the most breathless, exciting, action-packed installment in the series yet. I don’t know if I’m quite ready to call it the best entry in the series – Rogue Nation still holds that distinction, as of now – but I am ready to declare Fallout to be the most thrilling Mission. A film so relentlessly entertaining that it might actually exhaust you. Believe the hype: this really is the best action movie since Mad Max: Fury Road.

man of steel 2

Ah, the DC Extended Universe: a shared cinematic universe filled with coulda, shoulda beens. It had a bright start with 2013’s Man of Steel, a polarizing but by no means terrible film. From there, the DCEU has been a series of major misfires and occasional bright spots, leading to a team-up film that didn’t exactly do (ahem) justice to the comic book characters that inspired them.

But could things have turned out differently if Warner Bros. wasn’t so eager to kickstart its shared universe with Batman v Superman and had instead released Man of Steel 2 as planned? Perhaps, if Henry Cavill‘s latest interview about the long-gestating sequel means anything.
