It’s been a weird day for Superman and DC Extended Universe fans. This morning, news broke that Henry Cavill is reportedly hanging up the Kryptonian cape and leaving Warner Bros, thus ending his tenure as the DCEU’s Superman at three movies. In the hours since then, there’s been a lot of talk about what this means for the future of the superhero franchise, but now Cavill himself has responded to these rumors in, quite frankly, a bizarre way.
Ok, so even if you just watched the video, let’s recap. We have Henry Cavill wearing a Krypton Lifting Team T-shirt, looking at the camera solemnly and lifting a Superman toy as a dog barking version of “The Blue Danube” plays. Oh, and he wrote “Today was exciting #Superman.” Seriously, how am I supposed to react to this? Cavill isn’t confirming or denying if today’s Superman news is true, but one thing is certain: it’s going to get a lot of people’s attention. You might as well put this video next to the word “cryptic” in the dictionary.
