Sources close to The Hollywood Reporter say that Cavill and Warner Bros. have parted ways after contract talks over a cameo in Shazam! fell through. Cavill posted a video on his Instagram set to the tune of "The Blue Danube", which featured him holding a Superman figurine throughout the course of the short video.

Henry Cavill has left fans baffled after posting a freaky video hours after it emerged he hand hung up his Superman cape for good. A Warner Bros. spokesperson later added the studio's relationship with Cavill "continues to remain unchanged", before adding "we have made no current decisions regarding any upcoming Superman films".

This means he may no longer appear as the iconic Superman in the DC cinematic universe.

Jessie Wade is a news writer for IGN. In fact, Cavill made things even more perplexing, leaving everyone less certain about his involvement in Warner Bros.' comic book movie world than ever before. Superman was due to make a turn in the movie due out in April, given the two superheroes share the same universe (the DC Extended Universe, or DCEU, to be exact), but Henry was unable to find the time necessary due to other commitments.

The United Nations and human-rights groups have pleaded against any military offensive in fear of unprecedented bloodshed. But having surrendered influential roles in Syria to Moscow and Tehran, that's about all Washington can do for now.

The clip shows Cavill wearing a shirt with "Krypton Lifting Team" emblazoned across the chest and slowly lifting up an action figure of himself as Superman into frame.

Personally, I think Cavill was absolutely flawless in the role of Superman.

Henry has form making silly videos for the internet.

Dany Garcia, who manages Cavill has said that "the cape is still in the closet".

After news of his departure from Warner Bros. broke yesterday, Henry Cavill has now responded to the report in his own way.

Meanwhile, rumours also suggest Ben Affleck, who is now in rehab for alcohol abuse, will not return as Superman's DC Comics sidekick, Batman, in a stand-alone film, titled The Batman. Or will there be backlash against Henry Cavill for not coming to terms with Warner Bros?
