Report: Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot Superman Wonder Woman Cameos Cut from “The Flash” Movie Coming This Spring


Warner Bros-DC Films has learned its lesson. No more cameos in new movies from stars they’re trying to get rid of.

The Hollywood Reporter says Henry Cavill and Gald Gadot’s respective cameos as Superman and Wonder Woman are being cut from “The Flash.” The movie starring Ezra Miller will arrive on June 16, 2023.

Cavill was just ousted as Superman from the new DC Movies regime. Gadot lost her Wonder Woman lasso after the studio clashed with director Patty Jenkins. The new DC chiefs, James Gunn and Peter Safran, are just tossing out everything and starting again. Good luck!

The $200 million movie is already under the microscope as Miller himself has had a ton of bad PR and Miller’s legal problems to deal with. It’s almost been cancelled a few times.

Michael Keaton and Ben Affleck were each also supposed to be in “The Flash,” but at this point who knows? There could be a hologram of Adam West at this point! (And what about the recent Batman, Robert Pattinson?)

Imagine if people worried about King Lear, Prospero, or Hamlet like this? (Who?)
