After the reports of Henry Cavill leaving the role of Superman in the DC Extended Universe came out today, Warner Bros. finally broke its silence over the matter and released an official statement on the matter.
Read the official statement below:
“While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.”
Although the statement does make it clear that the Studio doesn’t have any Superman projects right now but there’s no way we can tell if Warner Brothers doesn’t have future plans for the character.

Directed by Zack Snyder and Joss Whedon, Justice League stars Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, Gal Gadot, Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, Ray Fisher, Amy Adams, Jeremy Irons, Diane Lane, Connie Nielsen, and J. K. Simmons.
Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists newfound ally Diana Prince to face an even greater threat. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to recruit a team to stand against this newly awakened enemy. Despite the formation of an unprecedented league of heroes — Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and the Flash — it may be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.
Justice League is now available on Digital or Blu-ray!
