Henry Cavill leaves his role as Superman after talks with the studio Warner Bros, according to a new report.

The Hollywood Reporter notes that Cavill was prevented from making a cameo appearance in the upcoming DC movie Shazam! with Zachary Levi, because of scheduling conflicts.

The contract negotiations between the actor's representatives and the studio have slowed down, which means that the future possibilities that Cavill plays are slim.

With performances in 2013 man of Steel, 2016 Batman against Supermanand last year justice League already underway, the conflict around Shazam! has fallen off with the shift of focus of the studio away from superman and in the direction Super Girl.

A source film for a teenage supergirl is currently in progress, which would prevent Cavill's participation, as the source comics depict Superman as a child at this point in history.

The studio should not make another soloupperman Movie for several years, with a source explaining, "Superman is like James Bond, and after a certain run you have to look at new actors."

It's a decision that, of course, coincides with the new direction that Warner Bros intended when the studio was out to shed more of its DCEU (DC Extended Universe) past. It is expected that Ben Affleck will resign from his role as Batman in Matt Reeves upcoming independent film.

Yet to publish are the films Wonder Woman 1984 (with Gal Gadot) Aquaman (Jason Momoa) and The Lightning (Ezra Miller). Aquaman will be the first to hit British theaters on December 14th.

There is still no official confirmation of Cavill's departure, either from the actor's camp or from the studio.
