The exit of actor Henry Cavill as Superman has been formally announced. The actor announced the conclusion of his run as “Superman” on Thursday morning on his Instagram account, thanking his fans for their love and support.
“I just had a meeting with Peter Safran and James Gunn, and I have some bad news for you all. I won’t be returning as Superman, after all,” he wrote.
After being instructed by the studio to announce his reappearance in October, before their hiring, he stated, “This news isn’t the simplest, but that’s life.”
The changing of the guard is a common event, said Cavill. I respect that. A universe needs to be invented by James and Peter. They and everyone else taking part in the new universe have my best wishes and luck.
He concluded the letter by saying, “For those who have been by my side through the years, we can mourn for a minute, but then we must remember, Superman, is still there.” The principles he defends and the requirements he places on us are still in effect! Although I no longer wear the cape, Superman and everything he stands for will always remain. Keep going; it’s been a pleasure travelling with everyone.
Fans of “Superman” from all over the world were startled and grieved by the news, and they poured out their affection for the actor in the comments section.
James Gunn, the director of “Superman,” announced on Twitter that Cavill would not be playing the role since a movie about the superhero’s early years has been decided upon.
