"While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we've always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged". Make sure you check the player below to see the response in full and please let us know what you think. On the heels of the original article from The Hollywood Reporter, Cavill posted to Instagram a video that was about as cryptic as his digitally removed mustache in Justice League was glaringly obvious. With Cavill now 35 years old, and no plans for a Superman movie currently in place, the actor would be closer to 40 before he'd have any chance of donning the blue tights and red cape again.
The social media firestorm over Henry Cavill's fate in the next installment of "Superman" turns out to be an invented conflict.
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. "As such, Cavill will join Ben Affleck, who isn't expected to reprise his role for director Matt Reeves' forthcoming Batman stand-alone film, as a hero on the way out". Singer did attempt to spin out a couple of new ideas, such as Superman's secret son with Lois Lane, but the film's reception wasn't strong enough to merit a sequel, and any further fleshing out of those concepts died on the vine.
That's why as insane as it is to think that Warners is taking a break from Superman for the next few years (reportedly choosing instead to focus on Supergirl), it's actually not that surprising given their track record.
Hurricane Florence Set To Hit US East Coast
WILMINGTON - Hurricane Florence is now a Category 4 hurricane, according to the National Hurricane Center . Over the next 36 hours, Florence's winds could reach 150 mph, the hurricane center says.
Meanwhile, Dany Garcia, Cavill's rep and former wife to Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, implied that Cavill isn't hanging up his cape just yet. It's also possible that a Shazam! cameo will act as a launching pad for the replacement Superman actor.
Oh well, at least Cavill's future as Geralt is confirmed.
