WB Announce Black Superman News On Henry Cavill’s Birthday – Fans Pissed


Warner Bros. Pictures really does know how to make DCEU fans angry, and this latest stunt really pissed fans off. What happened, you ask? They announced the news that they are looking for a black director to direct the upcoming Black Superman movie on Henry Cavill’s birthday.

A new Superman movie? Sounds like a good idea to me.

The issue was that this news was released on Henry Cavill’s birthday of all days.

It was revealed a while back that Warner Bros. Pictures had green lit a Black Superman movie.

This film was going to feature a different version of Superman.

Many people think that they are going to be bringing Calvin Ellis into the DCEU.

This means that Henry Cavill won’t be the only person playing Superman.

Cavill’s future as Superman is also uncertain.

We still do not know whether he’ll get to play the DC Comics superhero again.

The Hollywood Reporter then revealed that they’re looking for a black director to helm the upcoming Black Superman movie.

They already have a shortlist of names, which includes Barry Jenkins, Steven Caple Jr., J.D. Dillard, Regina King and Shaka King.

So, fans then took to Twitter to reveal their true feelings about Warner Bros.’s actions.

How could they do this to Cavill?

How could they release this news – via The Hollywood Reporter – on Henry Cavill’s birthday.

It’s also interesting that this news came from The Hollywood Reporter.

They’ve been posting articles that have been very critical of the Hollywood movie studio.

The Ray Fisher article is one that comes to mind.

So, what is going on over at Warners?

Why are they trying so hard to piss off DCEU and SnyderVerse fans?
