Is Henry Cavill hanging up his cape as Superman?

Henry Cavill’s Future as Superman Is Cloudy, Warner Bros. Focusing on Supergirl Henry Cavill's Superman is leaving the DC Universe

Long before Warner Bros. made a decision to move on from Henry Cavill's Superman, the studio had hoped to secure the former Justice League star for a cameo role in Shazam! .

In a cryptic Instagram post late last night, he published a video captioned: "Today was exciting #Superman". Henry has posted a freakish video sort of responding to the rumours.

An exclusive report in The Hollywood Reporter citing sources close to Warner Bros. indicates that Cavill is parting with the company.

IRISH ACTOR Colin O'Donoghue has been earmarked as one of the early frontrunners to replace Henry Cavill as Superman.

Jessie Wade is a news writer for IGN. THR reports that Cavill is no longer in the role after talks broke down for a cameo appearance in the upcoming Shazam!

It looks like the DC Extended Universe is losing its current movie Man of Steel, Henry Cavill.

The defence fed off that energy with a strong goal-line stand on the opening series, stopping the Falcons three times at the 1. With 7:41 remaining in the third quarter and the Eagles trailing 6-3, they were in need of a jump-start.

Henry Cavill was first announced in the role of Superman back in 2011, and to date he has appeared in three DC movies-Man of Steel, Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League.

"That's because the studio has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie, which will be an origin story featuring a teen superheroine". Additionally, WB says they weren't planning on releasing another Superman film for years to come.

Regardless, a source who spoke with the publication claimed that Superman was "a lot like James Bond", because, after a while, there is a need for a change in actors.

But should DC be tabling Superman for a while to focus on Supergirl, that would show that the critical acclaim and box office gold that made Wonder Woman one of the top films of 2017 made a big impact at DC and Warner Bros.

As such, speculation has begun regarding who will replace Cavill as Superman when the time comes down the road.

While Henry's future as Superman remains uncertain, it has been confirmed that he's joining a whole new cult franchise, taking on the lead role in Netflix's upcoming adaptation of "The Witcher". Obviously Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman isn't going anywhere - she's the best thing the DCEU has going - but depending on how Jason Momoa's Aquaman pans out this fall, the rest of the Justice League could also be disappearing to the Watchtower for good.
