Henry Cavill, who has played the heavy role of Superman in three films, is taking off his red cape and parting with Warner Bros.

The British actor, according to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, was being enlisted for a Superman cameo in the forthcoming Shazam! but contract talks on the role fell through.

Warner Bros. is not planning to make another standalone Superman film for a few years. However, it will be focussing on a Supergirl film.

Cavill has played Superman since DC kicked off its latest film universe in 2913 with Man of Steel. He also played a role in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League.

In other news, Superman may not be the only DC hero that is experiencing a drastic change. Ben Affleck may also be finding his own way too as the upcoming Batman film may feature a younger version of the character played by a different actor.

Even with Cavill gone, he will have a lot on his plate. He will be starring as Geralt of Rivia in Netflix‘s series adaptation of The Witcher.
