Superman Actor Henry Cavill Reveals Cryptic Video After Reportedly Leaving Role

Adjust Comment Print

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the English actor - who's played Superman in three films - is parting ways with DC distributor Warner Bros.

Evidently responding late last night, the actor posted a video on Instagram that shows him wearing a Krypton Lifting Team t-shirt as he slowly raises an action figure of himself into and out of the frame. Do you like the reported scene in question, and do you think all these reports validate the initial one from THR that states Henry Cavill is out?

Warner Bros.' focus now is Supergirl.

Under longstanding American law, permission for the PLO to maintain its mission in Washington must be renewed every six months. The United States continues to believe that direct negotiations between the two parties are the only way forward.

Time will tell exactly what the future holds for Cavill and his tenure at the DCEU, but it looks like it might not be time to launch that "Bring Back Henry Cavill" petition just yet.

Henry was set to appear as Superman in next April's release of Shazam!, which stars Zachary Levi, but according to THR contract talks between the actor's representatives and Warner Bros broke down. We're guessing that even if Cavill keeps the cape, someone else will be hanging the "S" in their closet. The teaser trailer and early images for Shazam! established the film as existing in the same world as Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, Wonder Woman and Justice League, and Jack Dylan Grazer's Freddy Freeman as an avid collector of superhero memorabilia. Cavill first played Superman in 2013's Man of Steel. According to one insider, the studio is now focusing on doing a Supergirl origin story starring a teen Supergirl, which would call for a younger actor playing Superman. This would make sense given reports surrounding Matt Reeves Batman film, which will also not star Ben Afleck and instead focus on a younger Bruce Wayne if rumours are to be trusted.
