British Star Henry Cavill Posts Bizarre Video Referencing Superman Exit (VIDEO)

Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice

Handsom British star and Hollywood leading man Henry Cavill is addressing his impending exit from the D.C. Universe as Superman — well, you have to see it.

Batman V. Superman: Dawn Of Justice


In a cryptic video posted to Instagram Tuesday, the Man of Steel and Justice League actor, wearing a “Krypton Lifting Team” tee shirt, stares at the camera with a stony expression as a Superman figurine enters and disappears from the frame. “The Blue Danube” waltz, sung by barking dogs, plays over the scene.


“Today was exciting #Superman,” Cavill wrote in the caption.


It came hours after it was revealed (first by THR), that  Cavill is parting ways with the D.C. Universe after contract negotiations broke down for a Man of Steel cameo in Shazam!. It’s unlikely Cavill will return to the Universe given that Warner Bros. “has shifted its focus to a Supergirl movie,” which will feature a teenage heroine and follow a much earlier timeline than the recent movies in which Cavill’s Superman has appeared.


Warner Bros. also likely won’t make another Superman movie for several years, and Cavill recently signed on to star in the Netflix series The Witcher.


On Wednesday commenters on Cavill’s video expressed some confusion about what the scene means. “I DON’T KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS,” one wrote. “Henry what are u trying to tell us bro? Are u trying to get Wb to greenlight a sequel,” another said.
