Cavill responds to rumours of his DCEU exit
Actor Henry Cavill responded to the reports on Thursday that he might be exiting DC Extended Universe as Superman.
According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter recently, Cavill, 35, who first appeared as the superhero in 2013's Man of Steel, and later reprised his role in Superman V Batman and last year's Justice League, might be parting ways with Warner Bros.
Cavill took to Instagram to post a funny video with a caption "Today was exciting #Superman".
In the video, the actor, wearing a Krypton Lifting Team T-shirt, is seen slowly showcasing a Superman figurine with "The Blue Danube" by Johann Strauss II playing in the background.
Cavill's manager Dany Garcia on Wednesday had quashed the reports, saying the "cape is still in his closet".
"Be peaceful, the cape is still in his closet. @wbpictures has been and continues to be our partners as they evolve the DC Universe. Anticipate a WB statement later today," she tweeted.
Warner Bros also released a statement and said they share a "great relationship" with Cavill.
"We have a great relationship and great respect for Cavill that continues to remain unchanged. We have made no current decisions regarding any upcoming Superman films," read the WB statement.
