Henry Cavill has left fans baffled after posting a freakish video hours after it emerged he hand hung up his Superman cape for good.

But in the mean time, let us know what you think about this news.

The article notes it appears that the DC Universe is losing its Man of Steel and went on to offer Cavill is out due to not doing the Shazam! cameo and more details. Warner Bros. made a decision to part ways the British actor, who has played the role of Kal-El in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

The "S" on Superman's chest may be a symbol of hope on his planet, but right now we're getting a lot of false hope planted into us by Warner Bros.' non-statements and Cavill's deeply confusing Instagram post. There are also no plans for a solo Superman film currently, but there is potential to revisit the character a few years from now.

Slowly, he lifts an over-sized action figure of himself as the Man of Steel into shot, accompanied by the caption "Today was exciting #Superman".

Another factor is apparently the studio's desire to reboot its entire DC Comics franchise, a theory borne by earlier reports that Ben Affleck won't be returning as Batman; the upcoming standalone Batman film will reportedly feature a younger actor playing the character in his earlier years. Other films on the horizon are the upcoming Shazam! with Zachary Levi, Wonder Woman 1984, due out in November 2019, and Ezra Miller in a stand-alone movie for the Flash.

In it, the former Mad Men star revealed he's up for the role of Bruce Wayne, you know, depending on the script or story.

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. The carefully constructed statement neither confirms nor denies the reports of Cavill's departure.

However, while Jon might fit the traditional view of the superhero of choice, Michael might be what the studio is looking for as its new Superman, as Deadline reported Warner Bros.
