Henry Cavill Posts Weird Video in Wake of Superman Exit Reports

Posted September 13, 2018

"Today was exciting", the actor cryptically captioned a video of him wearing a Krypton Lifting Team T-shirt while showcasing a Superman figurine to the sounds of Johann Strauss II's "The Blue Danube".

Do you want to see Cavill play Superman again?

And we all know how great Michael can be at the whole superhero stuff, after he starred as Erik Killmonger in Black Panther. Following reports that he's leaving the DCEU and hanging up his Kryptonian garb for good, Cavill has responded on Instagram - and it's not exactly a confirmation or a denial.

THR's Tatiana Siegel who broke the news about Cavill's departure said, "As for who broke up with whom, Warner Bros. was the one who made a decision to move on from Henry Cavill".

Graham urged coastal residents to finish their planning before the arrival of tropical-storm-force windows on Wednesday. A Category 4 storm packs winds of 209 km/h or more and has the potential for catastrophic damage.

Meanwhile, rumours also suggest Ben Affleck, who is now in rehab for alcohol abuse, will not return as Superman's DC Comics sidekick, Batman, in a stand-alone film, titled The Batman. Of course, Cavill could be excited about flying away from his Superman post and spreading his wings to new cinematic territory.

So, is Cavill really dropping out as Superman, or is this all some enormous misunderstanding or a backwards, reverse psychology-inspired marketing tactic for a Superman movie that's actually already in the works but one that Warner Bros.is only pretending isn't happening? According to THR, talks between Cavill's reps and the studio broke down over a potential cameo in the Shazam movie. The movie would have been Cavill's last shot as appearing as the Man of Steel. Gal Gadot is returning for Wonder Woman 1984, slated for release in November 2019, Jason Momoa headlines a solo Aquaman movie this December and Ezra Miller remains onboard to star in a Flash movie, which is due to begin shooting in early 2019. It's also possible that a Shazam! cameo will act as a launching pad for the replacement Superman actor.

It's not just that, because WB hasn't penciled in a Superman movie for the next few years at least with Hollywood Reporter's studio source saying: "Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors".
