It looks like some people are not quite ready to give up on Henry Cavill as Superman in the future DC Extended Universe flicks. A petition has just been started begging Warner Bros. to retain the Mission: Impossible - Fallout star as the current Man of Steel.

Fans were recently dismayed when news broke out that Cavill has decided to hang up the red cape after negotiations with the studio and his management fell apart. Nevertheless, some are still hoping that the Justice League actor will be brought back in a possible Man of Steel 3. One fan decided to start a Change.org petition to Warner Brothers asking that Cavill should still portray Clark Kent in the next DCEU movies.

It is important to point out that negotiations between Warner Bros. and Cavill's management might still be in the works. Cavill's publicist Dany Garcia insists "the cape is still in his closet" and there is hope that the actor will fly into another DCEU film.


Cavill himself posted a strange video with a Superman action figure along with the caption, "Today was exciting." It's unclear if Cavill is trolling the world but we will be waiting for new updates on the previous reports.

Although we are still unsure if he will still be Kal-El, fans can rest assured that Cavill will not be staying idle for long. The Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice star has already been confirmed for Netflix's The Witcher series where he will take on the lead role of Geralt of Rivia.
