Henry Cavill Raises Eyebrows With Perplexing Post as Superman Rumors Roil

Is he in or out as Superman? The Hollywood Reporter reported that Warner Bros. was ousting Henry Cavill from the role, but he cast doubt on the rumors with a post on Instagram that left most viewers scratching their heads.

Wearing a T-shirt emblazoned with the text “Krypton Lifting Team,” the 35-year-old stares intensely at the camera, slowly raising and lowering a Superman action figure. “Today was exciting,” he captioned the video, adding “#Superman.”

“Huh?” social media screamed in unison. “What are you doing?!” one user asked, while another wondered: “What does this mean?”

Warner Bros. responded to reporters’ questions, saying simply that the studio has “always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”

Meanwhile, alternative Superman options are being floated and Michael B. Jordan is considered a front-runner. And … Cavill is now floated as the next James Bond.
