In the wake of yesterday’s report that Henry Cavill will no longer appear as Superman in future DC movies, it’s already time for people to start speculating who could replace him as the Man of Steel. Deadline’s report on the Cavill story adds Michael B. Jordan’s name to the proceedings, while the Irish Post unsurprisingly suggests that an Irishman is the hot favorite to become Superman—specifically, Once Upon a Time’s Colin O’Donoghue. Who knows what’s going on any more? Presumably at least someone at Warner Bros., so please continue to speculate wildly in the comments.
