  • REPORT Henry Cavill is Out as Superman in the DCEU

Sources close to Warner Bros. told The Hollywood Reporter the studio has chose to shift its attention away from Superman in favor of other DC Comics movies, like introducing his cousin Supergirl into the cinematic universe.

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.

The social media firestorm over Henry Cavill's fate in the next installment of "Superman" turns out to be an invented conflict.

We know one thing for certain, Henry Cavill wants to play Superman again.

Jessie Wade is a news writer for IGN.

Deadline previously confirmed Cavill could not make a cameo in New Line's Shazam!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cavill, who has played the Kryptonian crusader in "Man of Steel", "Batman v. Superman" and "Justice League", is exiting the franchise. Cavill's reaction was certainly the funnier - and weirder - response.

Cavill posted a video Wednesday insinuating the door is not closed.

Henry has form making silly videos for the internet. While fans at home probably wouldn't consider the news particularly "exciting", perhaps Cavill was feeling enlivened by having so much attention on him at one time, hence the unusual, Superman-centric social media post. Rumors had posited that Cavill's Superman was to potentially be a lynchpin to the DCEU the same way Samuel L. Jackson's Nick Fury was for Marvel Studios, although that idea may now be scrapped.

It served to neither confirm or deny the rumours that he's stepping out of the spandex, and has, frankly, confounded fans.

However, according to the publication, a Warner Bros. rep said their relationship with the star "remains unchanged". Image courtesy of Warner Bros.

None of these updates fully clarify just what the current status of Superman is in WB's DC universe, and a decision might not be needed anytime soon, with no Superman movie expected in the next couple of years anyway.

Nearly two hours later (8:45 am Hollywood time) then saw Henry Cavill's manager, Dany Garcia, take to Twitter to offer her client is not out as Superman, and that they are still "partners" with WB.
