As it turned out, the DC Extended Universe actor Henry Cavill – who has since played the smug, red-haired Superman man of Steel in 2013 – was reportedly linked to Warner Bros. and bid farewell to his role as Clark Kent, breaking the Internet into a storm of confusion. disappointment, and sadness, Many were surprised who would replace the charming Brit as Superman and a few others expressed concern about how Warner Bros. would address the remake of the iconic cartoon character, especially among the myriad issues DCEU is already facing.
But just as fans thought that all hope for a solid explanation of the Superman situation was gone, Cavill stepped himself on the plate to respond to the social media exploding reports.
The only problem is that when the actor finally broke his silence on the current state of superhero affairs, he did not really clear anything. In fact, Cavill made things even more confusing, and everyone was uncertain about his involvement in Warner Bros.. Comic movie world than ever. On the heels of the original article of The Hollywood ReporterCavill posted a video on Instagram that was about as cryptic as his digitally removed mustache in justice League was obvious.
The clip shows Cavill wearing a Krypton Lifting Team shirt over his chest, slowly lifting an action figure of himself as Superman into the frame. Without even saying a single word, drawing a face other than "weirdly stoic" or eye contact with the camera, Cavill lowers the figure, while a dog-barking version of Johann Strauss's II. Waltz "The Blue Danube" sounds in the Background: As soon as the Superman figure is out of action, the video ends.
Unfortunately, it's not just the video that's puzzling – the clip's caption is also confusing. All Cavill wrote was, "Today was exciting," with the hashtag "#Superman," which essentially does nothing to eliminate ambiguity or demystify circumstances.
If we put the craziness of Cavill's video aside for a moment, we can figure out what "exciting" the caption might mean. Of course, Cavill might be excited to fly away from his Superman post and move his wings to new cinematic territory. On the other hand, perhaps it was his way of referring to this weird Instagram video to refer to the thunderstorm of tweets that rained, and the heavy news flow that startled afterward THR First reported, he is on the road as Man of Steel. While fans at home probably did not consider the news as particularly "exciting," Cavill may have felt livelier because he had paid so much attention to him, hence the strange, Superman-centric social media post.
At the time of writing, Warner Bros. Cavills has not yet confirmed or denied leaving the DCEU. On Wednesday, September 12, the same day THR claims that Cavill "hung the red cape", the studio published an official but rather ambiguous statement. It says, "We have a great relationship and great respect for Henry Cavill, who stays the same, and we have not made any recent decisions regarding upcoming ones superman Movies. "Before these remarks, Cavill's manager Dany Garcia tweeted that "the cloak is still in his closet" and that Warner Bros. "was and is [their] Partners as they develop the DC universe. "
So, is Cavill really a Superman, or is it all a big misunderstanding or a reverse psychology-inspired marketing tactic? superman Film, which is actually already in work, but one that Warner Bros. just pretends, does not happen? Although some characters (namely, Cavill's Instagram video and the conflicting comments by Warner Bros. and Garcia) suggest that the latter is true, the first is probably what's really going on.
With Cavill, a starring role as Rivia's Rivaltus in Netflix's ranked eight episodes The sorcerer WarnerMedia CEO John Stankey, and the opinion that Warner Bros. heads think they can "handle the franchises of the studio," especially at DC, both the actor and the studio, turn him into Superman has to go where the grass is greener – even if that means moving forward independently, breaking the hearts of the fans.
