Is Henry Cavill leaving the DCEU behind? Not so fast. Earlier today, a report claimed that the Man Of Steel and Batman v. Superman star was hanging up the cape as Superman, but if confusing social media posts are to be believed, the actor is still very much on Team Superman.
Don’t count Henry Cavill out as Superman as the actor may not be done with the DCEU just yet! Now the Man of Steel took to Instagram to have some fun on today’s news! “Today was exciting,” Henry Cavill posted along with a video of himself wearing a “Krypton Lifting Team” t-shirt.
The video features what sounds like Cavill’s dog, Kal, barking in the background with the actor showing off a figure of himself as Superman. Cavill also tagged the post with the hashtag: “#Superman.”
Time will tell exactly what the future holds for Cavill and his tenure at the DCEU, but it looks like it might not be time to launch that “Bring Back Henry Cavill” petition just yet.
Regarding today’s news, this morning saw it reported that Henry Cavill was out as Superman, however, his manager was quick to refute the notion stating that they are still partners with Warner Bros. and that Cavill still has the cape in his closet.
It’s known the actor and WB have been in negotiations for a return to Superman, which is confirmed to include a cameo in the upcoming Shazam! movie and possible films forMan of Steel 2 and appearances with Dwayne Johnson’s Black Adam. According to various reports, both sides are playing hardball, which is what we saw play out today. Henry Cavill is still said to be in negotiations and is not done with the Superman role just yet.
