Rumors have been swirling that Henry Cavill could be out as Superman in the film franchise after he turned down a role in the film “Shazam!” for the Netflix project,” The Witcher.”

The decision sparked discussion on who the next star to portray the role could be.

For Colton Haynes, it would be great to see an out actor don the red cape. Haynes tweeted that he had a specific gay actor in mind.

Bomer was almost cast as Superman in the 2006 film “Superman Returns.” The role ultimately went to Brandon Routh.

However, according to new reports Cavill may not be done with the superhero just yet. Cavill posted an Instagram video of himself holding up a Superman action figure which some believed to be a hint that he hasn’t let go of the role.
