  • REPORT Henry Cavill is Out as Superman in the DCEU

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

The super-buzz on Wednesday surrounded a report by The Hollywood Reporter that Henry Cavill, who starred as Superman in three DC universe films, will no longer play the hero. A proposed Superman cameo in the studio's upcoming "Shazam" feature will apparently not happen after contract talks between the actor's agents and Warner Bros.

Warner Bros.is instead focusing on a Supergirl movie, according to THR, which would most likely write out Cavill's Superman from the film mythology.

Though Cavill's departure was widely reported, Warner Bros. wasn't confirming or denying any news about the franchise.

Cavill first donned the signature spandexed suit in 2013's Man of Steel.

The eight-episode adaptation of the best-selling medieval fantasy book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski centre on Cavill's character Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a "Witcher". The success of Wonder Woman appears to have made them reconsider the ultra-dark approach pioneered by Man of Steel director Zack Snyder, with the upcoming Shazam looking a lot more like a family comedy than Batman Vs Superman.

Actors Jason Momoa, from left, Ezra Miller, Gal Gadot, Ben Affleck, Ray Fisher and Henry Cavill pose for a selfie photograph at a photo call to promote the film "Justice League", in London, Saturday, Nov. 3, 2017.

He's emerged as an early contender for the role, should Warner Bros. and DC opt to cast another relative unknown in the role.

The actor posted a cryptic video on his Instagram page, responding to the reports without actually saying anything at all.

That reset reportedly includes a shift in focus from Superman to Supergirl.
