According to The Hollywood Reporter, which cites anonymous sources, Cavill will no longer play Superman in future films.

An exclusive report in The Hollywood Reporter citing sources close to Warner Bros. indicates that Cavill is parting with the company.

While a sequel solo movie for Superman has always been rumoured, THR's report suggests that a future Superman film would not enter production for "at least several years" while the studio focuses on Supergirl.

According to DC lore, issues arose due to the studio shifting its focus to a Supergirl film, an origin film featuring superteens.

"The DC extended universe is an utter mess right now", wrote one user on Twitter. The actor also reprised the role on 2016's Batman v. Superman and 2017's Justice League. The production company did note that they "have made no current decisions regarding any upcoming Superman films".

Cavill ultimately starred as Superman in three films: Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League. The latter two faltered at the box office and were panned by critics. Henry Cavill is a talented actor, but he's a bit too old to play Superbaby (I have a sinking fear that that is an actual thing somewhere in a Superman comic).

While it's certainly possible that Warner Bros. might consider a black retelling of the Superman legend (and who could be better for the lead than the versatile, endlessly charismatic Jordan?), there are other routes the studio could take. In addition to the Cavill news, we've had that Michael B. Jordan report, and now, we have news regarding a now-defunct Shazam! cameo.

Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins is helping pave a way forward for Warner Bros superheroes. In addition, Henry Cavill could be on United Kingdom time, which is five hours ahead, so he would have been the first to have spotted the news, more than likely before his manager and could have even called Garcia to wake her up. The actor last week revealed that he had been cast as the main character, Geralt of Rivia, in Netflix's upcoming adaptation of the Witcher novels.
