This morning I awoke to the news that Henry Cavill was no longer Superman.  And my instant reaction was anger, disappointment, and sadness.  In fact,  I sent this text message to a friend; “Warner Executives have their heads so far up their butts they can see their own tonsils.”   But then, Cavill’s manager posted this via Twitter: “Be peaceful, the cape is still in his closet. @wbpictures has been and continues to be our partners as they evolve the DC Universe.” And I followed instructions and calmed down.  But I’m still not sure what it all means.

Is Cavill still Superman? I hope so! But nobody’s really saying much.  So I think there’s more to the story than we’re being told. Warner Bros released this statement: “While no decisions have been made regarding any upcoming Superman films, we’ve always had great respect for and a great relationship with Henry Cavill, and that remains unchanged.” And while that sounds hopeful, it’s not a definitive; “Yes, he’s still Superman.”  So, while I still have hope.  At this point I’m prepared for anything!

Here’s a description of the cryptic video-responce Henry Cavill posted on Instagram:  Cavill, wearing a ‘Krypton Lifting Team’ T-shirt,  silently showes off a Superman figurine, set to a dog barking the melody of “The Blue Danube” by Johann Strauss II.  – The Caption: “Today was exciting #Superman.” 

Yeah Henry, that clears everything up. NOT!
