With Sasha Calle joining the DCEU as Kara Zor-El, aka Supergirl in The Flash, what does this mean for Henry Cavill’s version of Superman?
With Sasha Calle joining the DCEU as Supergirl, some might believe he will replace Henry Cavill Superman. The flash It will be based on the iconic DC Flashpoint story with Barry going back in time to save his mother from being murdered. But by rewriting the past, Barry’s actions cause the entire universe to rewrite itself when he returns to a different present. While the original comic arc was primarily about time travel, the film rendition will be a mix of that and will incorporate the Multiverse.
Two of the biggest and earliest additions were not the return of one, but two different versions of Batman. Ben Affleck, who currently plays the DCEUs Caped Crusader, will be joined by Michael Keaton, who starred in Tim Burton. bat Man Y Batman Returns. However, an unexpected character just added was the last daughter of Krypton with Calle being cast as Supergirl, also known as Superman’s cousin. This will be the second time that Kara has appeared on the big screen since 1984. Supergirl movie starring Helen Slater. However, the casting of Supergirl raises some questions about what this means for the Superman mythology in the DCEU going forward.

Cavill, who has played Superman since 2013, will soon reprise the role in Zack Snyder’s Justice League. But despite previous reports that he still intends to continue playing Man of Steel in the future, no further announcements have been made. Even Cavill stays close to his chest if he intends to play Superman in future DCEU projects. Since the DC Films division has been restructuring its plans after 2017, there were reports that Supergirl the movie was in development. Later reports suggested that Supergirl was being partially used to replace Superman in the future. After Calle’s casting for The flash, to Supergirl The feature film is more possible than ever. But does that necessarily mean Cavill’s Superman (despite not appearing in the movie) is made after the events of The flash? That is a complicated situation because there are several sides to consider.
Supergirl’s role in The flash It has yet to be clarified, as it is always possible for her to come into existence through Flashpoint. Perhaps when Barry rewrites reality, reality changes so that Supergirl is the one to escape from Krypton instead of Kal-El. That could be the result of when Barry initially breaks the timeline or after he fixes it. But given that Superman is one of the most important characters in DC, it is highly unlikely. The flash it will erase it from the DCEU entirely. the Iron Man The prequel comic introduced Kara to the DCEU, hinting that she is possibly currently alive somewhere on Earth. Yes or no The flash he intends to rely on the prequel comic that remains to be seen for now. However, Kara replacing Clark is not where they are going with this, even if Cavill should be Superman after the Snyder Cut.
Supergirl and Superman can exist at the same time without issue, as comics and media like the Arrowverse have shown for years. Whether or not Kara gets her own movie or a major role in the DCEU depends on whether or not Cavill returns to the role of Superman. If Warner Bros. wants to see Superman and Supergirl together in future movies, they can make that happen. Whether with Cavill and Cella or with a new actor like Kara’s cousin, it’s a completely different story. But the news of Supergirl is not a sign that Cavill as Superman (or the character himself) are somehow being erased from the DCEU. In fact, it could mean that Warner Bros. wants to invest more with the Superman family by bringing Supergirl into the DCEU.
