The status of Henry Cavill’s Superman was in jeopardy, leaving fans uncertain about the actor’s future in the DCEU. One of the latest updates in the DCEU has after confirmation from the J.J. Abrams restart has been reported. However, the actor is not going anywhere as his popularity grows.
Recent rumors and speculation suggest that Cavill is about to take on the mantle of Captain Britain. With his role as Superman, the actor can certainly pull off the character very well. Insider Daniel Richtman told his Patreon that the actor apparently wants a $ 10 million talent fee before joining the MCU.
It’s an amazing amount, but Cavill’s status can help. When Cavill was announced as Superman in January 2011, it was a life changing moment for the actor. It catapulted him to fame and made him a household name in Hollywood.
To give you a glimpse before Cavill became Superman, his last film was Blood Creek (2009), in which he received $ 56,000. When he was elected the Man of Steel, his base salary for the role was $ 300,000. That $ 300,000 reportedly rose to $ 14 million, including the bonuses and profit sharing clauses in the contract.
When Cavill was selected to play Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix adaptation of the popular game The Witcher, Cavill’s popularity rose even further. Cavill is one of the highest paid actors on television as he reportedly makes $ 400,000 for every episode of The Witcher. He’s likely got a raise for season two as the series is one of Netflix’s biggest original shows.
Marvel has the budget to pay that amount and occupy it if they want. However, according to reports, the MCU is focusing more on bonuses than salaries. In their biggest movie, Avengers: Endgame, the Avengers Phase 1 core team was the only one to receive a lump sum of $ 10 million or more.
However, fans didn’t see the last of him in the DCEU. It was reported that Cavill extended his contract in the summer of 2020. In addition, Dwayne Johnson, who will play Black Adam in DC, will produce the Seven Bucks film, which was founded by Johnson and his ex-wife, Dany Garcia, the Cavills manager. Garcia is also Johnson’s business partner.
There are currently no announcements or confirmations of Cavill joining the MCU. There is also no clear update from Warner Bros. on the status of Cavill’s Superman in the DCEU. Take these details with a grain of salt while we wait for confirmation on whether he really is going to join the MCU, as well as his possible return as Superman.
