As a result, reports say Warner Bros has made a decision to part ways the actor, who has played Kal-El in Man of Steel (2013), Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (2016) and Justice League (2017).

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.

Cavill has yet to comment on the reports about the future of Superman. Many wondered who would replace the charming Brit as Superman and a fair few others expressed concern over how Warner Bros. would address the iconic comic character's recasting, particularly amongst the myriad issues the DCEU already faces.

Jessie Wade is a news writer for IGN.

So, if Cavill is still onboard to play Superman, and Warner Bros. still have a good relationship with him, where's this story coming from?

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. Henry has posted a weird video sort of responding to the rumours.

Rodgers returns from injury to give Packers come-from-behind win
Khalil Mack dominated while Mitchell Trubisky ran Matt Nagy's offense to perfection, and Chicago took a 17-0 lead into halftime. Rodgers was injured when Bears defensive end Roy Robertson-Harris seemed to fall on his left knee after a second-quarter sack.

In response, Henry later posted a cryptic Instagram post. No official statement has come from either Warner Bros. or Cavill himself, so sit tight and we'll let you know when the situation updates.

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.

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".

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is helping pave a way forward for Warner Bros superheroes.

Nearly two hours later (8:45 am Hollywood time) then saw Henry Cavill's manager, Dany Garcia, take to Twitter to offer her client is not out as Superman, and that they are still "partners" with WB. However, he's not walking away from the character, and Warner Bros. aren't walking away from him.
