Warner Bros. is reportedly putting all projects involving Superman "on hold" for a few years.
This is partially because of Henry Cavill's apparent exit from the DCEU. However, this the wrong decision for so many reasons. Here is why.
There's plenty of replacements out there
Just to name a few, there's Matt Bomer, Armie Hammer, Michael B. Jordan and even Supergirl's Tyler Hoechlin just to name a few. Henry Cavill was good as Superman, but let's face it: he's replaceable. It's not like we're having to replace Christopher Reeve. WB should just hire a new actor and move on.
There's so much ground to cover
Man of Steel, BvS and Justice League didn't truly use Superman to his full potential. Yes, they used two of his greatest villains, (Lex Luthor and Zod) but they've barely scratched the surface of Superman's storied history. There are so many great villains (Brainiac, Mongul, Metallo, etc.) and storylines (Reign of the Supermen, Last Son, For the Man who has Everything, etc.) to use for a great movie. And even to use him outside of main continuity, they could make great "Elseworlds" films like Red Son or Kingdom Come.
People love Superman
Everybody loves Superman. He's a cultural icon, and a new Superman movie would make Warner Bros tons of money. If Superman doesn't show up again in the DCEU, there's officially a hole that needs to be filled.
