British actor, Henry Cavill, had been playing the role of DC's Superman for many years now starting with the 2013 release of Man of Steel.

Even though his portrayal as Superman got a lot of praise from fans and critics, it has now been reported he may no longer play the Man of Steel in future movies!

According to an exclusive report from The Hollywood Reporter, sources tell the website that Henry Cavill has parted ways with Warner Bros and will no longer play Superman in the future.

Henry Cavill was supposed to discuss a new contract, but talks failed for him to stay as Superman.

The main reason Henry Cavill may have wanted to leave is because Warner Bros has not announced any future movies that will feature the Superman character.

Justice League 2 has been put on hold indefinitely and a Man of Steel sequel has not been talked about either.

Originally, Henry Cavill was supposed to reprise the role of Superman in a Justice League sequel in 2019, but those plans were put on hold after the first Justice League disappointed at the Box Office last year.

While reacting to this story, Warner Bros just announced the following statement: "We have a great relationship and great respect for Henry Cavill that continues to remain unchanged. Additionally we have made no current decisions regarding any upcoming Superman films".

Some rumors have already spread out that Michael B Jordan could be the next actor in line to play Superman now! This new rumor comes from a report from Deadline.

No other details have been revealed other than the fact that Warner Bros is concentrating on a Supergirl script for the time being.

It's sad news to see Henry Cavill leave Superman, but at least he got the chance to play the character three times already.
