THR has word that Henry Cavill is done with the Superman role, after playing the character in three films. DC might be learning that having a good story, and not just centering on two broody white men who hate each other, is the key to box office success.

Cavill made his debut as Superhero in the 2013 movie "Man of Steel", then returned for DC films "Batman v Superman" in 2016 and "Justice League" in 2017. DC Universe shake-up, but that is not exactly the truth.

According to sources, there won't be a new stand-alone Superman movie any time soon either, meaning Cavill will age out of the role as well.

Henry was in talks to make a cameo as Superman in the upcoming Shazam!

It's up, up, and away from Superman for the actor Henry Cavill.

Cavill also recently was cast in the lead role for Netflix's The Witcher, which made his availability for cameo appearances more hard. While there is no definite confirmation of this news yet, many DC fans fear the worst.

Any potential casting would be "down the road" however, as Warner Bros.is now focusing their might on a Supergirl film.

The move has not been confirmed by Cavill or the film studio, but THR reports contract negotiations between Cavill and Warner Bros. were unsuccessful.

In fact, Ben Affleck, the current Batman, is also rumoured to be on his way out, with director Matt Reeves' forthcoming Batman standalone film said to be focused on a younger Bruce Wayne.

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

The eight-episode adaptation of the best-selling medieval fantasy book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski centre on Cavill's character Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a "Witcher". Jason Momoa will star in upcoming Aquaman movie coming in December, and Ezra Miller will still star in a Flash movie, which will reportedly begin filming in the first half of 2019.
