Cavill says he just had a meeting with James Gunn and Peter Safran and it’s sad news, everyone.

He says he will, after all, not be returning as Superman.

Cavill says after being told by the studio to announce his return back in October, prior to their hire, this news isn’t the easiest, but that’s life.

He said

“there were no hard feelings.”

Following the announcement, some fans have been speculating that the actor is now available to take on the role of James Bond – should the casting director come calling.
