Henry Cavill Cast As Invisible Man For Future DC Films


This just in! It’s been revealed that Henry Cavill has been cast in a new role for future DC Comics movies. Warner Bros. Pictures and DC Films have revealed that the actor will be playing the Invisible Man in future DC Comics films!

This comes after the actor played Superman in Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice, Justice League and Zack Snyder’s Justice League.

DC Films’ President, Walter Hamada has made a statement about Cavill’s new casting:

We here at DC Films are delighted to have Cavill play one of the most mysterious and elusive characters in the DC Comics universe, the Invisible Man. His presence will be felt, but not seen, in all future DC Comics movies.

Warner Bros. Pictures Group’s Chairman, Tobey Emmerich also had some words to say about the casting:

Henry [Cavill] is one of the most talented actors in Hollywood, and we felt his talents were wasted as Superman, which is why we’ve decided to ensure that he’ll be in all future DC Comics movies as the Invisible Man.

It’s been reported to us by sources close to Cavill that the idea to cast Cavill in the role of the Invisible Man actually came from The Suicide Squad and Peacemaker director, James Gunn.

The source added that “Gunn’s got some really crazy ideas for the character moving forward” and they added that “Cavill was really excited to see what Gunn and DC Films have in mind for the Invisible Man moving forward”.

Now, this wouldn’t be the same Invisible Man that we’ve seen in the Universal films.

This is DC Comics’ own take on the character.

He is part of DC Comics’ Earth-S and his first and only appearance in DC Comics was in America’s Greatest Comics #1.

The Invisible Man is known as the enemy of Bulletman, and even though he only turned up in one issue of DC Comics, there’s no way of knowing how many issues he was actually in, because, well, he’s invisible…

The character was created by C.C. Beck and we can’t wait to see – or not – what Cavill does with this role.
