Breaking News: Henry Cavill isn’t going to assume the role of Superman anymore!
Can you believe that?! I know I can’t believe it.
Just a few hours ago it was announced that Henry Cavill had parted ways with Warner Bros. and the DCEU and will no longer reprise his role as the heroic Kryptonian, Superman. He’ll make one final cameo appearance in the upcoming DC Comics movie, Shazam! which is set to come out next April but after that he will officially be gone.

A couple of days ago I wrote a post stating how I believe Bucky Barnes is going to become Captain America in Phase 4 of the MCU but now I feel I have even more proof of that mantle passing eventually coming to fruition. Yesterday I watched Captain America: Civil War and during that climactic fight scene between Captain America, Bucky, and Iron Man there’s a moment when the century old superheroes start pummeling Iron Man like a tag team duo.
At this moment it’s these two super soldiers going to town on Iron Man but what makes this portion stand out is the fluidity of Steve and Bucky’s fighting. For that moment we see the current Captain America, Steve Rogers, give up his shield to the potential future Captain America, Bucky Barnes.
Of course, this may have just been some really awesome choreography between two superhero buddies but I don’t think it’s a coincidence how this thread of Bucky wielding Cap’s shield (for good) has happened more than once in these films.
This was just another observation I wanted to share with you and I thank you for reading. I hope you have a beautiful day.
