Henry Cavill finished as Superman with DC Comics looking elsewhere

Henry Cavill finished as Superman with DC Comics looking elsewhere

"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", the studio said in a statement. DC might be learning that having a good story, and not just centering on two broody white men who hate each other, is the key to box office success. Cavill has been in the role since 2013's Man of Steel and also appeared in 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and 2017's Justice League. Cavill reportedly stepped down from the role that he has played in several Worlds of DC films after negotiations with the studio fell through.

But with Cavill apparently out, and Ben Affleck rumored to also be ready to hang up the cape and cowl, Warners and the folks behind the DC films are presented with an opportunity to soft-reboot the series.

While playing The Blue Danube Waltz, but with dogs barking, Cavill slowly rises a Superman action figure, looking somber while wearing his Krypton Lifting Team shirt.

During a recent investor conference, WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey hinted that a change was brewing in the DC extended universe. Do you like the reported scene in question, and do you think all these reports validate the initial one from THR that states Henry Cavill is out? I never especially took to his and Zach Snyder's interpretation of the Man of Steel, with all the furrowed brows, but it felt like he finally got to have a little fun in Justice League.

Warner Bros. will focus on a Supergirl movie instead. An Aquaman solo movie is coming in December, and then Shazam! and Wonder Woman 1984 are both locked and loaded for 2019 releases.

Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah are the African representatives among the 55 players nominated for the 2018 FIFA FIFPro World 11. Ronaldo, meanwhile, was snubbed by UEFA in the Player of the Year award as Modric beat him and Salah to take the trophy.

It was announced last week that Henry has been cast in the upcoming Netflix adaptation of The Witcher as Geralt of Rivia, the main character in the popular fantasy universe that's previously been adapted into a hit video game franchise.

If Harington were to land that role, he would be following in the footsteps of former Game of Thrones star Jason Momoa (Khal Drogo) in making the leap from television to a huge big budget studio film.

Cavill had a busy summer, co-starring with Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible - Fallout.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of Cavill's exit.
