Warner Bros. bosses dismiss Henry Cavill casting drama

REPORT Henry Cavill is Out as Superman in the DCEU

Yesterday word broke that Henry Cavill was out as Superman, with reports that his exit had stemmed from talks over a cameo in Shazam! breaking down.

Sporting a "Krypton lifting team" t-shirt, a somber-faced Henry slowly lifts up a Superman action figure, accompanied by a classical tune, interspersed with dog barking.

We're told if and when the next "Superman" project is greenlit, Cavill along with others would be in play. Despite mixed reviews and a controversial ending, which saw Superman kill General Zod, the film earned just shy of $670 million worldwide, a financial success big enough to spawn a highly anticipated on-screen universe to rival DC's major competitor, Marvel.

Her only previous final was in September 2016, when she went down 7-5 6-3 to Caroline Wozniacki in the Pan Pacific Open. He said the interventions by umpire Carlos Ramos were "unnecessary" and said they "changed the course of the match".

Now all manner of speculation is going on, including rumours that Warner Bros could replace Cavill with Black Panther star Michael B. Jordan.

The answer to that one is tricky to pin down - and it's been made even more confusing by Henry Cavill's latest Instagram post, which the actor shared late Wednesday night.

Whilst that isn't a flat-out denial of the allegations, it certainly implies that the end of Cavill's tenure is far from a done deal.

The actor, 35, seemingly addressed the news of his departure with a quirky Instagram clip posted to his account in the early hours of Thursday morning. Henry has posted a freaky video sort of responding to the rumours. 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 odd, Superman-centric social media post.

Meanwhile, the studio is also betting on the popularity of Harley Quinn, who was played by Australia's Margot Robbie in Suicide Squad, according to the trades press. There are also no plans for a solo Superman film currently, but there is potential to revisit the character a few years from now. Ahead of those remarks, Cavill's manager Dany Garcia tweeted that "the cape is still in his closet", and that Warner Bros. Image courtesy of Warner Bros.
