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.
