After being a part of DCU for a long haul, Henry Cavill was fired and immediately replaced by David Corneswet. Later Cavill walked out from ‘The Witcher,’ leaving the fans worried about the actor’s career.

However, the recent speculation hinted that Henry Cavill signed a deal with Marvel Cinematic Universe in an undisclosed role. With Cavill’s interest in playing Captain Britain and fans demanding him in the suit of Cyclops, there is one deserving role that will suit Henry Cavill.

If DC owns Superman, then Marvel has its reach over Hyperion. Created by writer Roy Thomas and artist Sal Buscema, the original Hyperion debuted in The Avengers issue 69.

The writer revealed that the character was intended as a pastiche of DC’s iconic hero Superman. With Cavill embodying the Eternals, would be humiliating to DC.

Marvel has been known to throw shade at its rival franchise DC and the ongoing playful spat has been going around since the beginning. MCU is green-lighting Eternals only after DC’s New Gods. Later Marvel approved ‘Captain America: Civil War’ after DC’s Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was confirmed.
