Following a report that Henry Cavill is done with his role as Superman in the DC Extended Universe, the actor’s manager, Dany Garcia, has taken to Twitter to promise that “the cape is still in his closet.” The news of Cavill apparently parting ways with Warner Bros. broke earlier today, with a failure to resolve contract negotiations pinpointed as the reason for his departure.
Cavill originally signed up to play Superman four movies, and has so far starred in three, so a contract extension was on the cards. However, various sources claim that Cavill and his team – led by The Garcia Companies’ Dany Garcia – were pushing for a better deal, including more money and potentially even a producer role. However, the lukewarm response to Cavill’s last three DCEU movies has Warner Bros. looking to take the franchise in a different direction… one where Superman is less of a priority.
According to Garcia, however, Superman fans shouldn’t kiss Cavill’s Clark Kent goodbye just yet. The renowned talent manager, who is also known for helping Dwayne Johnson pave the way to movie super-stardom, took to Twitter to refute The Hollywood Reporter‘s claims that Cavill is exiting the DCEU. She also promised that Warner Bros. will soon be weighing in with a statement of their own.
