  • REPORT Henry Cavill is Out as Superman in the DCEU

Henry Cavill posted a cryptic video on his Instagram Wednesday evening following the multiple reports of he and Warner Bros. parting ways for any future Superman installments or cameos. Over the clip is Johann Strauss II's "The Blue Danube Waltz", replete with barking dogs, and the caption, "Today was exciting" followed by #Superman. Cavill was reportedly ready to make a cameo as Superman in Shazam! next year, which is being led by Chuck star Zachary Levi and will hit April 5. but, that's reportedly not happening. But if Aquaman, Shazam, and Wonder Woman 1984 deliver a hot streak for DC and WB, then we think we'll see a Superman movie back in the mix somewhere down the line.

Jessie Wade is a news writer for IGN. Will there be backlash against Warner Bros for not re-signing Henry Cavill as Superman?

The British actor posted a most perplexing video on his Instagram page yesterday, following the news, first broken by The Hollywood Reporter. Cavill's reaction was certainly the funnier - and weirder - response. 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.

Patriots not considering long-term extension for Tom Brady
It'll be a challenge for me. "If I'm going to do something at this point, it's going to be because I enjoy it", said Brady. Brady said his desire to play another five years is based, in large part, on his belief that he's gotten better with age.

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

In addition, Deadline reveals that Warner Bros. has no Superman films in development that would require Cavill, with the studio reported to be "mulling a completely different direction with its Superman canon for some time, even considering casting Michael B. Jordan in the role down the road".

Warner Bros.' focus now is Supergirl. But before too long, Dany Garcia, one of Cavill's representatives, tweeted out a message suggesting Superman's cape "is still in his closet". I'm highly suspect that Warner Bros. would drop him from Superman just after they were trying to get him into one of their three upcoming films that are coming out within the next year. However, he's not walking away from the character, and Warner Bros. aren't walking away from him.
