  • Henry Cavill as Superman

As movie and comic fans react to news that Justice League actor Henry Cavill may not be returning as Superman in the DCEU, his manager has released a small statement that raises plenty of questions about previous reports.

Warner Bros. has been looking at different angles to take with future Superman installments and is now focusing on a Supergirl movie as the studio's top priority. A proposed Superman cameo in the studio's upcoming "Shazam" feature will apparently not happen after contract talks between the actor's agents and Warner Bros.

According to THR, Warner Bros.is instead focusing on a Supergirl movie, which would most likely write out Cavill's Superman from the film mythology. Neither Cavill nor Warner Bros. have yet to confirm his departure.

Justice League ended its theatrical run with a worldwide box office total of $657,924,295, meaning it stands as the lowest grossing film of the DC Extended Universe. One project the studio will focus on developing is a Supergirl movie. Warner Bros. are eager to "reset" the under-performing franchise, according to the source. While Man of Steel was well received, Dawn of Justice and Justice League were... not. A solo Batman movie is also in development which may or may not star Ben Affleck back in the title role.

Three New iPhone Models Leak Ahead of Apple's Event
Hall, however, believes Apple will price it closer to $849 given better-than-expected demand for the current iPhone X this summer. Apple is set to host its "Gather Round" iPhone Xs today and only a few hours before the official launch, we have some new leaks.

The source also added that the decision solidified as Cavill recently signed on to star in Netflix's The Witcher.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news of Cavill's exit. That's said to be an origin story with Supergirl as a teenager, which, if they stuck to the comic book storyline, would make Superman a baby if it's on Krypton.

Henry was last on the big screen in this summer's blockbuster Mission Impossible: Fallout, alongside Tom Cruise.

The only member of DC's holy trinity that now seems to have no plans to leave is Gal Gadot as Diana Prince, which makes sense since she received critical acclaim for her performance in Wonder Woman (which also earned DC high praise and some serious box office returns).
