No more Henry Cavill

Indeed, a Warner Bros spokesperson told THR after their report was published yesterday: "We have a great relationship and great respect for Henry Cavill that continues to remain unchanged". Without so much as uttering a single word, pulling a face other than one most would call "eerily stoic", or breaking eye contact with the camera, Cavill lowers the figure while a dog barking version of Johann Strauss II's 1886 waltz "The Blue Danube" sounds off in the background. Cavill was reportedly ready to make a cameo as Superman in Shazam! next year, which is being led by Chuck star Zachary Levi and will hit April 5. but, that's reportedly not happening. It's hard to know what to believe, so let's go through what we do know...

DC's cinematic universe - once known to fans as the DC Extended Universe (DCEU), now referred to unofficially as "Worlds of DC" - began with 2013's Man of Steel.

The three DC pics Cavill has starred in which were directed by Zack Snyder - Man Of Steel, Batman V Superman: Dawn Of Justice and Justice League - have grossed close to $2.2B at the global box office.

THR's Tatiana Siegel who broke the news about Cavill's departure said, "As for who broke up with whom, Warner Bros. was the one who chose to move on from Henry Cavill".

Henry Cavill has reportedly chose to leave his super powers and super skinny suit behind as he quits his role as the Man of Steel.

Erdogan said despite being the target of terror groups Daesh and the PKK, Turkey did not lose its resolve to help Syrians. The strikes targeted infrastructure at three sites connected to Syria's chemical weapons programme near Damascus.

Henry Cavill is hanging up his red cape for good and leaving his Superman role behind amid talks of the studio behind the movies switching their focus to Supergirl.

None of these updates fully clarify just what the current status of Superman is in WB's DC universe, and a decision might not be needed anytime soon, with no Superman movie expected in the next couple of years anyway.

Warner Bros. Pictures made a statement after the release of the report.

Oh well, at least Cavill's future as Geralt is confirmed.

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.
