“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,” a rep for Warner Bros. said in a statement to THR.
The New York Daily News has the announcement that actor Henry Cavill is stepping away from the Role as Superman. It may seem trivial, but to a lot of fans of the institutional role of the Superhero, it is the image of Cavill they will have. So the announcement that is going to change will affect those fans. As someone who grew up with the image of The late Christoper Reeve in the tights and cape. I kind of get what they may be feeling.
