Star Trek: William Shatner Shows Support To Ex-Superman Henry Cavill Upon Making DC Exit

Ever since James Gunn had publicly announced numerous cancellations of sequels and threequels they had planned beforehand, including Henry Cavill no longer reprising his role as the Man of Steel, fans are quick to take their reactions to Twitter on how disappointed they are with the treatment Warner Bros. has towards the actor. However, recently tweeting his support to the ex-Superman is Star Trek’s Captain Kirk, William Shatner.

Amid the clamor caused by Cavill’s undecided return and eventual exit from the DC Studio, Shatner showed his support to the actor on his most recent tweet, sending his best wishes and reassuring that Cavill will soon be able to land on his feet with a better role. Check out Shatner’s tweet below:

The tweet reads: “Sending my best wishes to #HenryCavill When a door closes; a window opens.”

Shatner’s statement very much gets along with Henry Cavill fans as they are campaigning for the actor to transfer from DC to Marvel Studios, instead, some have even speculated this will be the chance for Cavill to become the next James Bond. Henry Cavill’s most recent confirmed project is in Amazon’s Warhammer 40K project, which, needless to say, goes hand-in-hand with what Shatner said, now that a new ‘window’ has opened for Cavill.
