Henry Cavill’s weird and wonderful Instagram adieu to Superman

Henry Cavill’s weird and wonderful Instagram adieu to Superman

Despite the negative remarks on the films, many appreciated Cavill's performance as Superman.

If you remember how much fun Henry Cavill had with MustacheGate, you won't be surprised by the tone he took with SupermanGate, or whatever you want to call yesterday's news.

Representatives for Cavill didn't return messages Wednesday. Warner Bros. had not released any comment on the situation and neither had Cavill, but that has changed since all of the chaos ensued. The Blue Danube Waltz by Johann Strauss II plays in the background, and the video is captioned: "Today was exciting #Superman". According to a report 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. Warner Bros. subsequently told Just Jared that "no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films" and its respect and relationship with Henry "remains unchanged". More recently, he starred opposite Tom Cruise in Mission: Impossible - Fallout. Cavill's manager Dany Garcia on Wednesday had quashed the reports, saying the "cape is still in his closet".

A stand-alone "Batman" film was also once to star and be directed by Ben Affleck.

The comic book fans of the world were not sure what to think after word got out that Henry Cavill may no longer be playing the role of Superman. Cavill's unusual video doesn't give a straight answer as to whether he will continue in the cape or not, but it certainly adds to the mystery.
