Henry Cavill is hanging up his cape. On Wednesday, the 39-year-old British actor shared a heartfelt statement on Instagram confirming he will not reprise his role as Superman in the DC Comics extended cinematic universe. “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,” he wrote on Instagram. The news came as a shock to fans because Henry appeared in a mid-credits scene at the end of “Black Adam” in October.
