Henry Cavill, the first person who springs to mind when we think of Superman, has revealed in an Instagram post that he will no longer be playing the superhero in the DC Universe. “My time to wear the cape has passed,” he declared in a statement,. Just seconds after James Gunn, the new co-CEO of DC Studios with Peter Safran, announced his departure as Superman. The actor’s remark came only a few days after it was revealed that James Gunn and Peter Safran are going to close the curtains on Man of Steel 2, which would have seen him wearing the red cape once more.

Henry Cavill was last seen in Superman’s avatar in Black Adam and he hinted that he will return but in the new Instagram post, he wrote, “I have just had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran and it’s sad news, everyone. I will, after all, not be returning as Superman. After being told by the studio to announce my return back in October. Prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life. The changing of the guard is something that happens. I respect that. James and Peter have a universe to build. I wish them and all involved with the new universe the best of luck, and the happiest of fortunes.”
He further added, “For those who have been by my side through the years……we can mourn for a bit, but then we must remember…. Superman is still around. Everything he stands for still exists, and the examples he sets for us are still there! My turn to wear the cape has passed, but what Superman stands for never will. It’s been a fun ride with you all, onwards and upwards.”
