You will always be our Superman! Thursday morning started on a rather sad note for all the DC fans. And the reason behind it is none other than the fact that our favourite Superman aka Henry Cavill will not be returning as the caped man. Just over a month after making his superhero comeback as Superman in Dwayne Johnson's "Black Adam," in the post-credits scene, the actor informed fans of the "sad news" on Instagram.

Taking to his Instagram account Henry penned a long emotional note. He wrote, 

"I have just had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran and it’s sad news, everyone. I will, after all, not be returning as Superman. After being told by the studio to announce my return back in October, prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life. The changing of the guard is something that happens. I respect that. James and Peter have a universe to build."

The actor further added, 

"I wish them and all involved with the new universe the best of luck, and the happiest of fortunes. For those who have been by my side through the years…..we can mourn for a bit, but then we must remember…. Superman is still around. Everything he stands for still exists, and the examples he sets for us are still there! My turn to wear the cape has passed, but what Superman stands for never will. It’s been a fun ride with you all, onwards and upwards."

The actor's exit is an unexpected move, especially given that DC executives Peter Safran and James Gunn made it clear that they wanted Henry to be a part of the new DC Universe. Apparently, a "Superman" movie is in the works but will centre on the early days of the Man of Steel.

Most recently, Henry also announced his exit from the hit Netflix series 'The Witcher'. According to reports, Liam Hemsworth will take up the role in the next season.
