Henry Cavill, after playing Superman in Batman Vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, is reportedly set to enter the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Henry recently made headlines for his performance in Netflix's hit fantasy series, The Witcher and is ready to return to the superhero genre.
According to reports, Henry has been roped in for the sequel of Captain Marvel, starring Brie Larson. Captain Marvel made her debut in 2019, right before the release of Avengers: Endgame. The sequel is one of the most anticipated upcoming releases of Disney. The film is set to hit the theatres on July 29, 2022, for phase four of the MCU.
Fan theories and media reports suggest, Henry will play MCU's new Wolverine. He will be cast alongside Captain Marvel played by Brie Larson as Carol Danvers. For years it has been reported that, Marvel has been looking for a way to introduce X Men as part of the extended universe since the characters moved to Disney with Fox Studios being acquired.
