Among the plans is a solo Supergirl movie rather than another Superman.

Warners has made a decision to part ways the British actor, who has played the role of Kal-El in Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice and Justice League. Cavill has portrayed Superman in three films - origin story Man Of Steel, followed by superhero team-ups Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and last year's Justice League.

According to multiple reports, the star has parted ways with Warner Bros. and will not be featured as the Man of Steel in any upcoming movie ventures.

The eight-episode adaptation of the best-selling medieval fantasy book series by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski centre on Cavill's character Geralt of Rivia, a monster hunter known as a "Witcher". According to The Hollywood Reporter, negotiations for Cavill to appear in a cameo in the upcoming connected feature "Shazam!" broke down due to scheduling conflicts with "Mission Impossible: Fallout". The latter two struggled at the box office and were panned by critics.

So with that said, if all holds, it looks like Cavill is following Ben Affleck into the sunset in terms of their DC tenures.

The source added: "There's a recognition that some parts of the previous movies didn't work".

The world of DC superheroes will reportedly have to get along without Henry Cavill's Superman. Though far from a box-office bomb, it wasn't the Avengers-sized hit Warner Bros were hoping for.

The Hollywood Reporter list several factors for the decision - Warner's Bros current focus is believed to be on a Supergirl movie, and there are now no plans for another Superman movie at this time.
