Warner Bros.is in the midst of remaking its DC Comics strategy following the fan and critical backlash to "Justice League" and "Batman v. Superman". With all of Warner Bros.'s DC movies now lined up, a Superman movie is still several years away, with the Supergirl movie being slated first.
After three go-rounds, Henry Cavill is forever done with the red cape, at least according to the Hollywood Reporter's sources, though it hasn't gotten confirmation from the actor or Warner Bros. After contract talks between Cavill's WME reps and Warners broke down, talks eventually spiraled into Cavill leaving the role for good.
Cavill first starred as Superman in 2013's "Man of Steel", reprising his role in 2016's "Batman v Superman" and later in 2017's "Justice League".
Any potential casting would be "down the road" however, as Warner Bros.is now focusing their might on a Supergirl film.
Warner Bros plans for the DC movie universe going forward seems to have undergone a lot of rethinking, so some recasting is not completely out of the blue.

Neither Henry Cavill nor Warner Bros. gave a definitive statement on whether he could reprise his role of Superman. Do you like the reported scene in question, and do you think all these reports validate the initial one from THR that states Henry Cavill is out?
The meaning behind Snyder's post is as yet unclear. As a side note, rumour has it that Idris Elba will be the actor to take on James Bond after Daniel Craig hangs up his jersey.
In fact, Ben Affleck, the current Batman, is also rumoured to be on his way out, with director Matt Reeves' forthcoming Batman standalone film said to be focused on a younger Bruce Wayne.
Likewise, the same goes for WB announcing a new Supergirl movie in August, which saw the Hollywood trade sites first mention Cavill could be replaced.
