Colin O’Donoghue 3/1 favourite to be next Superman after Henry Cavill reportedly quits

Colin O’Donoghue is the early favourite to become the next Superman following reports that current star Henry Cavill has quit.


Cavill has portrayed Superman in three movies, most recently donning the famous keep for the ‘Justice League’ film, but reports on Wednesday claimed the 35-year-old Englishman was moving on after talks to appear in a cameo role in the new ‘Shazam’ movie broke down.

Warner Bros. has insisted that “no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films” and insisted it has “great respect for and a great relationship with” Cavill, but that has not stopped the bookmakers from releasing odds on who will follow in the footsteps of the likes of Cavill, Brandon Routh and Dean Cain.

A leading contender at this early stage is Colin O’Donoghue, best known as his performances as Captain Killian ‘Hook’ Jones in television show ‘Once Upon A Time’, with William Hill making him the 3/1 joint favourite alongside Creed star Michael B Jordan.

‘Hunger Games’ actor Sam Claflin is next up in the betting at 6/1, with Armie Hamer, Channing Tatym, Cillian Murphy and Donald Glover all priced up at 10/1 in what the bookmakers believe will be a very competitive race for one of the biggest roles in cinema.

“Whether the Man of Steel gets melted down and rebooted or replaced in the current Universe, there are surely going to be some big names jostling for the role,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told Bettingpro.com.

Latest William Hill Odds


Who will next play Superman in a feature film: 3/1 Colin O’Donoghue; 3/1 Michael B Jordan; 6/1 Sam Claflin; 10/1 Armie Hamer; 10/1 Channing Tatum; 10/1 Cillian Murphy; 10/1 Donald Glover; 12/1 James Norton; 12/1 Matt Bomer; 12/1 Matthew Goode; 16/1 Aiden Turner; 16/1 Chris Pine; 16/1 Richard Madden; 16/1 Tom Hiddleston; 20/1 Adam Driver; 25/1 Jon Hamm
