Yesterday it was reported that Warner Bros. and Henry Cavill have parted ways with his Superman character and the studios’ DC movie universe. The report came from a studio insider by way of The Hollywood Reporter, and while both Warner Bros. and Cavill’s Manager responded with equally cryptic statements, nothing official about Cavill’s tenure as Superman has been released. This has only made the situation more confusing for us on the outside, because no party involved has stepped up to officially confirm or deny the rumor.
To make things even more confusing, Cavill posted a bizarre video of himself on IG in which he says nothing while staring into the camera and raising a Superman doll. This is going on while a dog barking version of The Blue Danube is playing in the background. I guess we could call it art, because it’s definitely not a coherent statement.
I would assume that an official statement will be released before this week ends, or early next week to clear up the confusion. Although, I could see all parties remaining coy, because if anything else it’s driving press coverage of WB, Cavill, and the DC movie universe. Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
