In a long statement posted on Instagram on Wednesday, Henry Cavill said that he will not play Superman again.
Cavill recently met with DC Studios co-head James Gunn, who is making a new Superman movie, and co-president Peter Safran, who told the actor about the news.
“It’s awful news for everyone.” “After all, I won’t be returning as Superman,” Cavill said in an Instagram post. “After being told by the studio to announce my return in October, prior to their hiring, this isn’t the easiest news to deliver, but that’s life. I like James and Peter’s desire to create a universe. “I wish them and everyone else associated with the new universe the greatest of luck and fortune.”

According to Variety, Gunn has been working on a new Superman tale for “some time” that will center on the character’s life as a cub reporter in Metropolis.
“Peter and I have a DC slate ready to go, which we are ecstatic about. At the start of the new year, we’ll be able to share some exciting information regarding our first initiatives, which Gunn took to Twitter on Wednesday. “Superman is one of those on the list. In the beginning phases, our tale will be centered on an earlier era of Superman’s biography; hence, the character will not be played by Henry Cavill. “But we just had a wonderful meeting with Henry, and we’re big admirers, and we spoke about a number of intriguing future collaboration opportunities.”
The Superman announcement comes after nearly a week of speculation about the fate of “Wonder Woman 3.” Warner Bros. turned down Patty Jenkins’s plan for the movie, which led to rumors that she had killed or quit the project. On Tuesday, Jenkins made a long statement on Twitter in which she denied these claims.
